The most festive season of the year, nowhere else you can find so many romantic Christmas markets than in SouthWest Germany. There are medieval and baroque palaces and houses, and market squares, busy with beautifully decorated wooden stalls. The air is filled with the scent of cinnamon, roasted apples and almonds. Buy toys manufactured in the area and handcrafted gifts. Take a break with mugs of hot spiced wine or enjoy the taste of gingerbread cookies. Last but not ever least take lots and lots of pictures of awesome decorated Christmas trees, sparkling with a thousand lights.
