Sankt Wendel Christmas Market
We had the best time walking around the Sankt Wendel Christmas Market being photographed by Danielle Segui. Danielle does day in the life photography which is great because you can wonder around and not have to worry about the perfect pose. Stefan is usually the one taking all of the photos which leaves him out of the picture all of the time. It was nice to to have everyone in the picture. We really wish we could have had Sophie with us, but it was a little too chilly out for her that day.This was a cute, local, medieval themed market to attend. People were dressed in medieval outfits throughout the market grounds. There was live music as we entered the market which got us in the Christmas spirit immediately. At the entrance there was also a large stable full of camels. I didn’t realize how large camels actually are!We made our way through the market and discovered all sorts of stands filled with local cuisine and knick-knacks. Olivia particularly liked the stand that sold hobby horses. As we neared the back of the market we discovered a carousel and a stable full of sheep, goats and a miniature pony. There was also a sled hill opposite the stable. We weren’t able to ride the carousel because it was made for kids only, but we of course got a cute picture beside it to add to the collection! She was also too young for the sled hill. Hopefully it snows here soon so we can take her out sledding! We have the perfect back yard for it!As we walked around we enjoyed gluhwein, a bratwurst, and garlic bread covered in Mediterranean toppings that you could add yourself. I typically don’t like gluhwein, but at this market I did find one stand’s gluhwein enjoyable. Olivia and Stefan chowed down on the bratwurst. The Mediterranean pizza was very savory and is definitely something you would want to share with a group of people. There were fire pits set up all around the market which we warmed up by a few times! The temperature felt like it dropped as we were walking around so it was very cozy and much needed!
