Eating Your Way Through the German Christmas Markets
Is it really the holiday season without stopping at at least one Christmas market? The answer: no. Over the past few years, I've tried quite a few markets in the UK, so I thought it was a good time to go further afield. And what better market to try than one of Germany's, and Europe's, best! Frankfurt's Christmas markets take up a very large portion of the city. It's by far the largest one I've ever been to. It was full of beautiful stalls selling everything from dried meats, to hand crafted ornaments, to delicious looking chocolates and sweets. The centre of the market is located in the Romerberg, the picturesque main square of Frankfurt's old town. If you're taking a ride on the carousel though, make sure you pay beforehand - it's not free apparently! The best part of any market though, is the food. There is so much food to choose from! I think I did pretty well during my four days in the city tasting some of the best things on offer, and making sure I ate a couple of my favourites as well! I even took a quick train ride over to Mainz and explored their medieval market, and of course checked out its incredible cathedral.
