Bremen Market


I visited my friend in Bremen and visited the many market stalls that they have in Bremen around Christmas time. The German’s really do Christmas well. None of the tacky tinsel we have in England (I like tinsel, but sometimes it can get a bit much!).

They have lovely handmade tree decorations, various food stalls, carousel rides and lots of make shift bars. They had one Market in the town which had a Medieval theme- all the staff were dressed up in Medieval clothing.

They had so many food and Gluhwien stalls- I was in heaven! Obviously I had to sample them to see if they were any good- which they were. Had my favourite the currywurst, and plenty of Gluhwein.
