, in Austria
, one of Europe`s oldest markets (there are documents from the 15th century describing the fine crafts being sold by elderly women). Then continue to Germany
and the craft stalls surrounding a glittering 100-foot Christmas tree in Marienplatz. On to visit Nuremberg
, where 180 candy cane-striped stalls fill the main square with crafts, ornaments, and toys. Continue to Rothenburg ob der Tauber
for one of the most romantic Christmas Markets in Germany and finally, end in Stuttgart
, with its festive illuminations, the wonderful scents of cinnamon and vanilla, the wooden chalets, richly adorned with angels, conifer branches and Christmas ornaments.
