It’s official…. visiting Christmas markets in Germany in December has now become a tradition!
When mom came to visit in 2009 – we headed over to Aachen – however, we only managed about 10minutes in the Christmas markets before packing in the idea and finding an amazing German grub spot for lunch (I blame the cold of -13degrees).
So this year, when mom was visiting us in Brussels – we just KNEW that a weekend to Germany was on the cards… the question was = “Which German Christmas markets to visit”?
HIM and I eventually settled on Trier for day 1 (because he has not stopped talking about the sausages for an entire year) and Monschau for day 2 (as it is my favourite in terms of picturesque-ness).
The drive between Brussels and Trier was about 2 & 1/2 hours…. and finding parking in the city was not the easiest task – but we managed to convince our hotel to let us park directly outside their door, check in and then hoof our way across to the market – where the obligatory sausages & potato fritters (with apple sauce) were enjoyed.
There really isn’t much more that I can say about the Trier markets – so I will let the below pictures do the talking!
A place to visit? Definitely – even if it is only for the sausages!!!
