Christmas Markets

Christmas Markets are a big deal here in Vienna. Walking through the parks in November there are all these wooden buildings going up. It really is quite impressive how they just seemed to appear overnight.  They opened up two weekends ago, full of food and lights and merchandise. The past two weekends we have visited a few different markets.  The one at Karlsplatz has a large area that in the summer months is full of water, but for the market has been filled with hay children can burrow in and build with. It looked like a lot of fun, though none of the boys seemed very impressed.  They were mostly concerned with the food.  We bought a pizza pretzel–the biggest I’ve ever seen–to share. We shared some honey covered almonds. The boys got another pretzel filled with chocolate and I got a kebap sandwich. At another market we got a large donut filled with marmalade. (You could also choose saurkraut, though I was the only one interested in that possibility.)
