|The diehard Germans still sit outside for coffee. Blankets provided for the weak. :)|
|Entering the Market.|
|One of the many beautiful churches. No matter what affiliation, or|
none, you have to admire the beauty.
|The children's market area was super cute with rides and stalls for the kids.|
|The Christmas Queen walked around giving blessings to the stalls and the|
kids all follow her.
|E was enamoured by her. :) She's in a big fairies and princesses phase!|
|Built the first and maybe only snowman of the season.|
|The next day the snow and the man were all gone, apparently|
Santa called on Mr Snow(man) for some help.
|Our hotel was right in the old town and just three blocks from the market and across the street from Starbucks. :)|
And on our street were great shopping opportunities...Hermes anyone? Next time.
|I believe this bridge is called "The Hangman's Bridge". Ummm|
|More lovely church insides. For a little tiny old town it has lots of|
old beautiful churches.
|We went on a ride through the old town. G-Pa and I safely out of the cold in back.|
|A warm-up break, One of them...|
We ate lots of sausages and drank lots of gluhwein, bought lots of new ornaments and sweets to bring home, and enjoyed the spirit of the German people. We had such a lovely time we didn't even mind the cold! If you get the chance, make the trip! And stay in a hotel within the walls of the old town if you can. Makes it all within easy walking distance.
