Christmas Markets bring a variety of handmade crafts and tasty German treats together to be experienced all in one place. For those visiting Germany in December, the Christmas Market might seem like a crash course or sneak peek into German Tradition. Whilst browsing through the intricate handmade items such as wooden smokers and ornaments, you are able to sip on warm mulled wine while nibbling on sausages and chestnuts.
