Christkindlmarkt at Marienplatz

The first weekend after Thanksgiving means the Christmas markets are finally open! My friend Elizabeth and I headed to Marienplatz on Saturday for the afternoon to explore a little and buy some classic winter treats.

Glühwein (or mulled wine), is a traditional German Christmastime drink and shows up everywhere around this time of year. I tried my first sip the other night, so I decided I should give a full cup a try. I got the Rotwein and Elizabeth got the Weißwein--it's not something I would necessarily be dying to get again, but my taste buds did start to get used to it a little bit more as I got closer to the bottom of the cup (that could also have just been the alcohol taking effect).

Surprise, surprise, we saw a crepe stand that we just couldn't resist. And HOLY HOLY, they were soo tasty. I got Eggnog and Nutella and Elizabeth got Baileys, Banana and Nutella. 'Nuff said.
We have plans to go explore some more Christkindlmarkets on Friday with our mentors in the program as well as take a Christkindl-themed tram tour around the city on Saturday! It's just the most wonderful time of the year, isn't it?
