The Christmas market for young and old…

One of the most famous Christmas events is the Christmas market in the Pueblo Español. Christmas carols, mulled wine, delicious food (you can also get bratwurst or roast meat here), Santa Claus’ stand of course (especially for the little ones).

Our conclusion about the Christmas market
We love going to the Christmas market every year because it gives us that real Christmas feeling. However, this Christmas market cannot be compared with the big and well-known ones in Germany, as you have to travel a little longer.
