I was not disappointed
An absolute delight for the senses: colored lights, the smell of mulled wine with cinnamon and assorted sweets, ice rink, shops of all kinds and lovely atmosphere. All this is what you will find in the various Christmas markets that are scattered around town. Warning: they are only mounted during the time of Advent, on Christmas Eve they are removed. They are called Weihnachtsmarkt, although in certain traditional places they are called Advent market or markets of baby Jesus.
They formerly served as a warm place to shelter the inhabitants of the towns and cities of central Europe during early winter. They eventually became a fixed place for Christmas celebrations.
