I quickly found the dessert stand I wanted to visit. (Have I mentioned how great everything smells? The best smell comes from all the nut stands! Candied almonds really excite my nose!) I settled on the waffle with hot cherries, and I resisted the urge to get whipped cream too:
|You can see the hot steam coming off of the cherries!|
|This is the view from the side of the waffle vendor looking onto the market. You can also get twenty different types of crepes at this stand!|
|"All fun things are either unmoral, illegal, or they make you fat." Words of wisdom at the Christmas market.|
|This is the "Sterngasse," or star alley. I find the lights are very fitting! This street connects the Marktplatz with Friedensplatz.|
|Here is another view of the market. It is a bit easier to see what it looks like in daylight and with fewer visitors.|
I am not sure what these were called, but they were kind of like pizzas, but more in the style of "Flammkuchen," which has a white sauce instead of a tomato sauce. I had one with potatoes and cheese on top. After selecting this type, I decided that probably the best combination would be the one with onions and bacon! It was still tasty, and I could have definitely shared it with someone.
|I had my food warmed up in this wood oven.|
|Dinner! So tasty! So much food!|
|As daylight became twilight, I found it much easier to take non-flash photography that equally captured the light decorations while not blurring everything around me!|
I've already shown you the animal heads on some stands, and I have noticed that they move. However, I was able to HEAR them this time. This moose is singing "Silver Bells." I guess the market just got a bit more kitschy, like we might expect in the USA.
|Nothing says "Merry Christmas" like a trash can!|
