But what did I like about Germany this time of year? CHRISTMAS MARKETS aka the most magical places on Earth for feeling warm, cozy...and spending more money than you intended. I couldn't believe that even tiny little Cologne had FIFTEEN christmas markets? What??? I literally stumbled on a new market every few blocks. So without further ado, feel free to vicariously experience the pure holiday spirit of German Christmas Markets.
P.S. Merry Christmas, a half-year too late.
