Oh, Christmas tree ...
When I was on the way home from our excursion I had some time left until the train would arrive. So, why not strolling over the Christmas market in Eberswalde for a little while?

This market isn’t a huge one but spreads this very cosy and welcome atmosphere very well. If you haven’t been in the right mood so far this place will wipe away all anti-Christmas attitude, for sure.

As soon as I left the first few stalls behind I smelled these delicious waffles with icing sugar, cotton candy, candied almonds and mulled wine – the typical and from many people loved sweet and tempting smell of Christmas.

A special highlight at this market is a big iced area which is a nice place to do some ice-skating. The children on the ice just enjoyed themselves so much.

Another likeable activity I spied was the baking session for the kiddies that’s offered by a local baker. Kneading the dough, experimenting with the cookie-cutters and using tons of sprinkles as topping must be fun.

When I had to leave this market which is a tiny Christmas world on its own I completely felt the season’s joy and happiness around me like a coat. Visiting a Christmas market’s definitely an enjoyable way to leave the day’s business behind for wee moments!
