German Christmas Markets are big, crowded, you can get German Bratwurst sausages at every corner and the mulled wine is especially good. Well, that’s how most imagine Christmas Markets in Germany, however, not every market in Germany is like the ones in Nürnberg, Munich or Frankfurt. Most Winter Markets are way more intimate and whilst most stalls at the big markets are operated by professionals, the smaller stalls at almost any local Christmas market in Germany are run by private people selling their own produced goods. Discover handmade delicacies, buy gifts for loved ones, drink an alcohol-free punch or mulled wine and just have a good time.
After having visited the Christmas Market in Tettnang before, I was kind of disappointed by it this year. The culinary options felt quite limited, Käsespätzle or French Fries for vegetarians, various kinds of grilled Bratwurst for everyone else, and just one stall selling hot Crepes as I’ve seen, this has been quite better in the past years. Also, they only had live music playing inside the New Castle, of which you could hear nothing outside. Without snow, it was just cold, and no good music, the atmosphere was just lacking, unfortunately. Luckily there are Christmas Markets in every other city in Germany, with plenty other options to visit. This year they had a christmas crib exhibition inside the museum, which I didn’t visit again.
