Trier Christmas market

Destination Germany is famous for its beautiful Christmas markets, which every year attract visitors from around the world in search of the ultimate festive experience.

This year sees Trier celebrate its 33rd Christmas market. The festivities continue against the stunning backdrop of Trier cathedral until 23 December 2012. There are 95 little wooden huts offering everything from jewellery to candles, ceramics to handmade arts and crafts. And if all that leaves you feeling hungry, there's a plentiful supply of sweet treats and potato fritters, as well as glühwein and hot tea to wash them down.
