Some of our favourite Christmas Market photos

One of our favourite annual trips whilst living in the Netherlands was to the lovely German city of Aachen and during the last couple of years to Cologne's even bigger Christmas markets. We also enjoyed a wonderful trip to Vienna in December 2011.  As we're now well into December and Christmas is fast approaching I thought it would be fun to share some of our favourite Christmas Market photos, so here goes.....

Flashback to Vienna

At the end of November we visited the Christmas Market at Chatsworth, one of England's many fine stately homes. Whilst the setting was impressive and the stalls full of lovely things to buy it lacked the unique atmosphere of a German or Austrian Christmas market. If you get the chance hop on a plane and head for mainland Europe to experience the unique atmosphere of a 'real' Christmas market.

Happy Christmas
