Yesterday afternoon, we visited the Oberursel Christmas market, and it marked the first time we came with our children.
The older one is attending college in the U.K. and the younger one went to the Christmas market in Strasbourg/France… Needless to say, we were able to pass the Crepes stand and many others without stopping. We surely had much time to spend quite a bit of money! The most ever. We bought a creche and Christmas ornaments from the Erzgebirge for presents. We also had Fischbrötchen (this German delicacy which most foreigners despise), photo here at Marions Kochbuch: Fischbrötchen.
The old steam locomotive is still running, mostly occupied by young riders.
One of the many vendors with Christmas ornaments on display.
The Christmas market is between the Marktplatz (market square) and Rathausplatz (city hall square).
View onto St. Ursula Church, as seen from the Marktplatz.
I had to pass on this food – but not the photo opportunity.
It was a cold day at the market, but as Germans sell Schnaps and Glühwein as early as midday, it surely was no problem for some.
Sunday, 02 Dec 2012, is the last day of the Oberursel Christmas market and the hours are: 12:00 – 21:00.
