Oberursel Christmas Market

Monday, December 1st, 2008

This week the Monday Podcast visited the Christmas Market (Weihnachtsmarkt) in Oberursel.  In comparison to last year, there was a lot more to see and better weather as well.

We spent the afternoon there, and the longer we stayed, the more people there were.  It was very busy in the evening.

Frankfurt Christmas Market

Monday, December 10th, 2007

I haven’t had much of a chance to visit the Christmas Markets this year. I had good intentions of blogging and podcasting from different ones, but in the end the weather has stayed bad and to make things worse I was ill for the past week.

So yesterday we braved the elements and wrapped up warm to at least visit the Frankfurt Christmas Market. Last year I was critical of the high prices on some of the stalls, so I was interested to see if they had got any worse. I found out that it is easy to spend a lot of money on very little!


I also found out that Sunday evening was not the best time to go – it was absolutely full and there was little or no chance of taking a leisurely look at the stalls. You either went with the flow or got out of the way!


Listen to the podcast to find out more. Have you visited a Christmas Market this year?
