We Love Christmas Markets
Christmas markets are one of our very favorite holiday traditions. Whether we’re traveling around Europe or staying closer to home, the entertainment, food, traditions, and wonderful shopping lift our hearts. We have been to Christmas markets filled with special light displays, live nativity scenes, and giant wooden toys. And, of course, the food and drinks are so special there too. Hot cocoa with mini marshmallows and spiced glühwein warm us from the inside out. We love the tastes as well as the smells and sounds of Christmas markets.
Christmas 2020 Calls For Creativity
The unfortunate reality for most of us in 2020 is that the COVID-19 pandemic has limited our ability to travel and even to enjoy large events where many people gather. But you can still enjoy the fun of a real German Christmas market online for everyone to enjoy safely from home. We are so excited that we won’t be missing our Christmas market fix this year. Instead, we’ll be enjoying all the wonderful fun from the comfort of our own home at the virtual Christkindl Market online. And you can too!

A Taste Of German Christmas
If you’d like to make a traditional Christmas treat, you’ll want to try our recipe for Swabian Dambedei pastry. This sweet brioche-like pastry comes from the southwestern part of Germany. It’s decorated with almonds and raisins, made in the shape of a man. It’s not hard to make at all. But like most breads, it takes a bit of patience to let it rise.
We hope you find yourself full of joy this holiday season. Food Travelist wishes you and yours a safe and healthy holiday season wherever you may be.
