Christmas Markets in Europe

It is a secret dream of mine to tour the Christmas Markets in Europe. I've been sent information from various travel companies about the tours that are offered during the month of December, featuring enchanting photos.

For anyone who loves craft fairs and flea markets, imagine sipping hot cider or rich milky hot cocoa with marshmellows, smelling fresh gingerbread cookies, all bundled up with knitted mittens, and scarves. Imagine the scent of fresh pine, the lights lit, and walking up and down the cobblestoned streets with visible breath taking in all the beautiful hand made works of art and Christmas decor laid upon red velvet fabric and jingling bells abound.

I will even go so far as to say, it has been a far fetched fantasy to marry at the Linderhof Castle in the Black Forest, near Munich, Germany.

The photo taken in the winter, has made a winter wedding seem quite magical, followed by a German honeymoon touring the Christmas Markets.
