Oh what a weekend! We thought for sure we would be home again all day on Sunday due to the stomach bug we seemed to pick up. Thankfully Princess started in around bed time on Saturday night, though, so by Sunday morning we were all feeling back to normal and felt up to getting out in the afternoon for a few hours! I was so excited. Oberursel may be my favorite Christmas market we’ve visited thus far. Maybe a tie with Wiesbaden. But really, Oberursel is just SO fun. I prefer the smaller towns because even during busy times they aren’t too crowded. Plus they tend to have vendors with unique, hand made things vs. some of the bigger markets that seem to have identical booths with identical items. Not to mention that Oberursel has a medieval section! We seriously had to come back just for the pork sandwiches in this section alone. (Sorry Germany friends, this market only runs one weekend a year and is over for 2014 but definitely watch for it next year!) Maybe the best part about this market, though, is that our super awesome friends, The Johnsons, live in Oberursel and we have so much fun with them every time we go! It is such a treat to see them!
And that closes our our crazy, busy, super fun week of Christmas Markets! We saw SIX our first week! So much fun! If you want to catch up on all the fun you can do that here:
– Bonn, Germany
– Rudesheim, Germany
– Trier, Germany
– Wiesbaden Germany
– Strasbourg, France
(and Oberursel Germany.)
We had so much fun! I am a little sad we have to go back to work and school because this past week has been such a blast! We still have a few Christmas Markets we are planning to see on upcoming weekends. And I am sure we will go back down to Wiesbaden a time or two more, too. I can’t wait to share in all that fun! 🙂
