13 Best German Christmas Markets

From The Conde Nast Traveler

While other countries draw crowds with their holiday traditions, no one does Christmas quite like Germany. Its festive holiday season kicks off at the end of November and runs up until the beginning of January, and includes traditional cookies and cakes like Lebkuchen and Pfeffernüsse sold in stores and markets, decorative trees and wreaths filling public spaces, and picturesque old towns given the fairy-tale treatment with twinkling lights and glowing candles placed in the windows of shops and residences. (All that Glühwein no doubt has something to do with it, too.) One of the best ways to experience the holidays in Germany? A Christkindlmarkt, or Christmas market. Here, in no particular order, are 13 of the country’s best markets.
