Wiesbaden Holiday Market
December 16th, 2020
Happy holidays! After yesterday’s quick stop in Luxembourg, tonight we’re visiting the holiday market in Wiesbaden, Germany. I hope you’re hungry because you can choose your dinner from the amazing wheel of brats and sausages!
Tomorrow… Paris or Strasbourg? Your pick! Leave a comment and let me know.

We found ourselves in Wiesbaden unexpectedly when we decided to (while riding the train to Heidelberg) change direction and go to a city neither of us had been to before. This is one of the best benefits of not booking ahead – you can make it up as you go and see places you never expect to.
We checked into Hotel Nassauer Hof and then walked to Wiesbaden’s Market Square where stalls of holiday crafts and food were tucked around the perimeter. The Evangelical Market Church is not old by European standards, but is stunning nonetheless as the backdrop of this holiday market. Flowers of light top the market stalls, selling the widest array of items of any of the markets we’ve been to – hats, toys, candles and home décor in addition to ornaments and treats. It was here in Wiesbaden that we saw the one and only suspended, rotating wheel of grilled brats and sausages – quite unlike anything we’ve seen before and very convenient for the chefs!
Cheers to the holidays!
