Now I’m off on my next adventure! This time with a magical festive twist.
I will be travelling to Germany to discover the Christmas markets of Niedersachsen region.
If you would like to read this blog post in Finnish, please click here.
The idea is to discover the endless possibilities of what’s possible with a spare weekend trip from Finland to Germany.
We will be visiting 4 Christmas markets over the course of four days to offer a variety of what’s possible and can’t wait to share with you what we discover.
The 4 cities we will be visiting are: Goslar, Göttingen, Hameln and Hildesheim across 25th to 28th of November.
Amongst the wonderful cities of Niedersachsen you can find a nice selection of traditional Christmas markets to explore over the course of a weekend.
In fact, the region plays host to some of the oldest dated traditional Christmas markets in Germany.
This aims to add an authentic magical experience to the trip, which has got me rather excited for what awaits ahead.
There is something quite magical about this time of year and Germany does a great job of bringing that festive feeling to life.
Here are a few reasons why Christmas markets in Germany are so magical:
Perfect for handcraft gifts for family and friends.
I’m a bloke and when it comes to Christmas time, I struggle with gift ideas for family and friends.
One thing I love about German Christmas markets is the fantastic wide selection of handcraft gifts you can find.
In fact, some of the best gifts I’ve given at Christmas time have been from German Christmas markets.
You will often find skilled craftsmen creating wonderful festive gifts that will inspire your shopping spree.
Handmade gifts always add that special touch and can’t wait to see what I can find this time amongst the wonderful Christmas markets of Niedersachsen.
Festive food and drink awaits
Nothing complements this time of year than a hot mug of Glühwein at a Christmas market.
I’m looking forward to collecting another festive mug to add to my growing collection. It simply wouldn’t be a German Christmas market without one.
Can’t wait to try all the festive treats that Germany has to offer across all the different markets.
Lots of ginger biscuits and grilled sausages await, I’m sure.
Let’s see what we can find amongst the local restaurants close by to the German Christmas markets, offering traditional food from the region of Niedersachsen.
German Christmas markets are perfect for weekend escapes
German Christmas markets are perfect for weekend escapes from Finland.
If you want to get away and jump into the festive spirit, taking a weekend break in Germany couldn’t be easier.
Germany is practically on your doorstep and only a short flight away.
Make the most out of this magical time of the year and see how the Germans like to celebrate this festive time of the year.
It’s truly a magical experience and totally worth a weekend break.
