Darmstadt Christmas Market in Photos

| September 22, 2014

Darmstadt offers a relatively small market, for a city.  There is a small section of stalls on Luisenplatz, but the main part of the market sits around the Schloss.  On the corner there is a children’s area, then across the street is the main market.  Most stands were very commercial and many items were not German crafted, so it is *not* a market I personally recommend for gift buying.  Most of the market centered more around the holiday festivity of sharing food and drink, so it does make a nice spot to pop in for a bite to eat.  The center of the market features a tall pyramid and a small carousel for young children.  Here are some pics of our visit one evening…
