Christkindlesmarkt, Christkindlmarket, Christkindlmarkt, Weihnachtsmarkt, these are German words for Christmad markets. Yes, this is the best time of the year to experience this street market which is associated with the celebration of Christmas.
I already experienced a lot of Christmas markets in Europe especially in Germany and I always love it. I have a good news because I already booked a trip to Thuringia or Thüringen in German. It is one of the 16 states of Germany. I will be traveling alone since most of my friends are busy with the holiday season.
|The famous Christmas market in Nuremberg or Nuernberg. I was there for many times and this was taken last December 2011.|
Among the places that we will be visiting are Jena (town of the biggest university in Thuringia and home to Goethe and Schiller, too), Weimar and Erfurt (the state capital). I can’t wait to visit these places in 11 days. I am counting.
I will be sharing photos once the trip is over. For now, let me share some snapshots I took from the Christmas markets I visited in Germany.
