One of my favourite destination in my area is fortress Bourtange. Today was the last day of the anual Christmas market and since the weather was ok we took the chance to go.

The Christmas market takes place only at weekends. This year it was on 3 advent Saturdays and Sundays. The years before it was only on 2 weekends. Seems lots of people like the market.

The kerstmarket is open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. In Germany Christmas markets are free but in Bourtange you have to pay an entrance fee of € 2.50. Anyway, it's a lovely place and always worth a visit.

Awww, dann habe ich die wohl immer verpaßt :( Naja, auf die Erbsensuppe kann ich verzichten, aber Glühwein mag ich ;)

Wir haben Weinachtsmarkte, aber nicht so wie die Deutschen.
Oft nur 1 tag pro Jahr, für Charity.
Man verkauft dann viele Liter Glühwein :) (und Erbsensuppe mit gerauchter Wurst)

Normalerweise gibt es in Holland auch keine Weihnachtsmärkte - das haben wir schmerzlich in Groningen erfahren müssen :( - aber sie sind wenigstens so schlau, dass Gute aus Deutschland zu kopieren. LOL!! Bourtange liegt nur 2 km hinter der Grenze.
