The German Market




Every year we have a fantastic German Market in our City Centre. Loads of wooden cabins selling lovely gifts and crafts and delicious food. I love the Bratwurst sausages and the crepes, but the very best are the schokokuss, gorgeous chocolate marshmallows in lots of different flavours.

I took the girls to the market for a browse. We all had a ride on the wonderful carousel and enjoyed some yummy doughnuts filled with chocolate. We also had a look at the skating rink, we couldn't skate as it would have been unfair on Star. So we went up to the first balcony on the new library and watched the skaters and the big wheel in action. (One day I will get them to go all the way up to the rooftop, it's amazing up there!)









I love the German market, it really gets you in the mood for Christmas. Although this was the girl's first visit this year, I've already been twice before! Next time I'm aiming for a nice mug of hot chocolate with a little something naughty added ;) Although the last time I went on the evening I ended up in the jacuzzi with the floozie as there was really no space left for standing! (for none Brummies this is a large statue in a fountain which we have lovingly nicknamed the floozie in the jacuzzi, and fortunately on that evening they had taken all the water out!)

    1. I wouldn't go on a Saturday, last week it was heaving, you couldn't get near the stalls. But it was lovely on a weekday afternoon, just as it was getting dark. :)

  2. I've taken eldest here but only in the morning when it's quieter. She's off with her auntie at night time for a treat soon and I'm quit envious! I think next year I'll brave it with littlest-it gets do busy doesn't it. But I agree, it's great.

    1. we decided against taking the buggy but The Little Man was too poorly to go anyway. So Daddy's back was saved as he was going to carry him around on his shoulders. It's not so bad in the mornings though.

  3. We like going to the outdoor Christmas market in Bath. Gets really crowded, but it instantly makes you feel Christmassy. #CountryKids

    1. I wish I had taken a picture of the doughnuts, they were so pretty, but I'm afraid we were too greedy and gobbled them up quick ;)
