Christmas Market

Yay, It’s that time of the year again!!  When the streets are transformed into a stunning sight.  The smell of Gluehwein, illuminated decorations with Christmas trees and people in jolly Christmas mood.

Germany is famous for its Christmas market with its biggest and first-ever Christmas Market.

This guide will help you with what to eat and drink at the Christmas Markets

1. Wurst (Sausage)

A visit to the Christmas market is incomplete without spotting a wurst stall with different varieties of sausages being grilled on a Schwenkgrill. In Berlin, it is quite normal to see the currywurst being a favorite choice.


2. Gebrannte Mandeln (Caramelized Almonds)

This delicious snack will attract you with its delightful aroma. The almonds come in different flavors and are an excellent choice for tasting on the go.

6. Crepes

Who doesn’t love hot pancakes served on cold Christmassy night? These thin pancakes come with delicious toppings too. 

My go-to choice is crepes topped with Nutella. Mmmhh yummy!


7. Kartoffel Puffer (Potato Pancake)

These sinful looking fried pancakes are absolutely the ones to die for. They are made of Potato patties fried till they are hash browned.

8. Gluehwein (Mulled Wine)

Christmas is incomplete without this German winter-drink. It is available everywhere in the Christmas markets.

Glühwein is usually prepared from red wine, heated with spices (cinnamon, cloves, star aniseed, citrus, sugar) and at times, vanilla pods. You can also make a shot of this drink with added rum or some other liquor. Delicious right?! 🙂 

This drink will surely make you glow with warmth from inside. It can give you a kick, extra quick, as you drink it warm. Enjoy this drink on freezing cold days. Cheers!
