Here are some photos I’ve taken at the Frankfurt Christmas market – Weihnachtsmarkt.
People buy gingerbread with cute sayings on it (“My darling” “My loving husband” “best mum ever”) and hang them around their necks. They walk around like this, and I think it’s pretty funny. Like a walking poster board of sugar.
Cheese from the left is scraped and then melted to make delicious fondue.
The tree is from Bavaria, near to the Austrian boarder.
This is my favourite drink - feuerzangenbowle. Alcohol is dripped over a massive lump of sugar, and collects in a cauldron at the bottom. It’s a little stronger than most of the stuff you get at the Christmas market but it’s lovely all the same!
