I spent yesterday in Aachen, Germany enjoying the Christmas Market there. Here are a few images of my visit.
|Hand cranked Street Organ. Don't be fooled by his big smile, |
this guy was working hard.
|The window displays here were so beautiful, |
I had to include a few.
|Fresh Roasted Chestnuts! Despite their lovely aroma, |
I've learned they are the one food I can't stand.
|In this ancient city, this modern fountain added some whimsey.|

|Hand blown Christmas Ornaments|
|These Springerle molds remind me of my Grandfather and his |
rock hard anise Christmas cookies
|The patterns haven't changed much in the last 200 years.|
|Aachen Cathedral - Contruction of inner octagonal |
church completed in 800 AD.
|The Throne of Charlemange|
