Mainz Christmas Market

Yesterday we drove to Mainz for the Christmas Market. I'd never been to a big one before and it was really fun. There were people standing around everywhere enjoying mugs of gluhwein. There were close to 100 shops selling wooden ornaments, jewelry, toys, crepes with any kind of filling you could want, pottery, and much more. There were rides for the kids too (which we carefully avoided.) The weather was wonderful considering it was the middle of December. The Mainz market will be open until Dec 23rd this year and they are open from 11-8:30pm Sunday through Thursday. Friday and Saturday they are open 11-9pm. Tuesday we're going to check out the Christmas market in Trier. It'll be our first time there as well. If you're interested in checking out a German Christmas market they are all listed here.
