Christmas Markets in Germany and Riga 2017

It has been too hectic for the last three months to come here and read your posts – sometimes I had to work at weekends. Sorry guys, but I will try to catch up during this festive period.

The photos below are from my Christmas market tour last year. Hope you all have a very happy holiday season!!



I was dreaming of a white Christmas…, but no snow!

If you are going to purchase a Dresdner Christstollen, try Schreiber ‘s!!




Rothenburg ob der Tauber 

Snow in Rothenburg!!!



Made a visit to Munich on the day of Krampus!




Also chose the day to see Das Engelsspiel.

Bad Neuenahr-Ahrweiler 


Ahrweiler Markt



No snow even in Riga!

Believe or not, but it is said that the first ever Christmas tree was set-up and decorated in market square, Riga in 1510.

  1. Fantastic pictures~! Having left the country for my travels and getaways during the past few years, I’ve actually forgotten how many beautiful spots and cities I have basically sitting right on my doorstep! You should swing by the south-western route on your next trip, though 😀 Heidelberg, Karlsruhe, Freiburg and Konstanz – and anything in between and around, for that matter – are beautiful during any time of the year… and all of those cities have exceptionally beautiful Christmas Markets too~ Ooook, enough of me advertising my corner of the world 😀 Happy New Year! To health, happiness and exciting travels~!
