As of this morning at 11:00, the Christmas markets have officially opened! I just did a quick walk-through on the way to another store, but not before I stopped and snapped a few pictures of the booths. They’re exactly the same as last year (probably even the same booth layout and everything) but it’s all still so exciting!
I plan on going there this afternoon for some Schmalzkuchen (a type of deep-fried pastry with powdered sugar on top). Glühwein (mulled wine!) will have to wait until tomorrow, though, since I have evening classes tonight. Let’s try and stay professional, here!
In the coming weeks, I am looking forward to checking out the other ones in the city, especially the big one in front of the Rathaus at Jungfernstieg!
Let the Christmas season begin!
