Christmas Market of Münden: Little but Lovely

| September 22, 2014 | Reply

Hannoversch Münden (or Hann. Münden, affectionately known in our house as “The Right Münden“) is a stunning walled, Fachwerk-rich town that hosts a nice little Weihnachtsmarkt in its Marktplatz throughout Advent season.

It’s no secret that I’m a sucker for Fachwerk, but add the architecture to a walled city and you’ve got the quintessential medieval town.

Münden might have just a few vendors at their market, but the important stalls were there: brats, crepes, candy, Glühwein, beer, and a few handcrafted items.  munden christmas market

All through town, trees lined the streets.
