Luxembourg City Holiday Market
One year ago today, I posted about Europe’s holiday markets after visiting several of them in December, 2018. We explored the shops, drank glühwein and indulged in all kinds of holiday treats at the markets in Paris, Strasbourg, Nuremburg, Wiesbaden and Luxembourg City. How strange to know that this year, the streets and squares are quiet and holiday spirit is confined indoors. With a vaccine on the way, let’s hope next year the festivities resume with more gratitude than ever for the occasion to make merry and celebrate the season together.
Today’s repost is the first of five about the holiday markets, going one by one, starting in Luxembourg City. Tomorrow we’ll venture to Wiesbaden.

*** On a two-hour stop while riding the train between Wiesbaden and Paris, we had just enough time to catch a cab into Luxembourg City to see its central holiday market. Luxembourg City is refined and beautiful, made even prettier by the unusually warm light of dusk. The market was just getting started but there looked to be plenty to enjoy with food, crafts, a children’s train ride and Ferris wheel towering above the festivities. Being still so close to Germany, we of course had to try one more sausage baguette with an accompanying beer. Prost! All in all, this holiday market was a worthy way to spend two hours and enjoy a fantastic dinner in the process.

You made good use of the beautiful sunlight, it was a rare opportunity, I remember more Luxembourg with its grey skies.
Thanks! It was funny — the minute we crossed the border from Germany, the sun came out. It had been cloudy for most of our time there. Was a nice welcome to Luxembourg.

I love your pictures; I would love to spend a Christmas in Europe!
Thank you! I hope you get the chance someday! There’s nothing like it — the food, drinks, music, markets. So much fun. 🙂

Love the light you captured and all the little stalls. I’m wondering if we have anything like this in the States.???
