I know it's only mid November but it really is nearly that time of year ! In just over a week or so the Christmas markets will be starting up here in Germany. It's one of my favourite times of year and one of my favourite German traditions. We have some great markets in the big cities near here - Frankfurt, Wiesbaden, Heidelberg. But some of my favourites are the markets that pop up in the small towns around here for just one of the Advent weekends. The towns look magical, all lit up - often in the snow !
So I decided to put together an illustrated map showing the dates for this year, so hopefully all my Taunus friends can start planning their weekends to fit in as many as possible ! And maybe it will inspire some people to visit... did I mention the mugs of steaming glühwein ?
I have also been wanting to submit an illustrated map to TDAT (They draw and Travel) and this was the perfect opportunity. Their site is wonderful - you can search for maps from all around the world - in a huge variety of styles.
