Seligenstadt’s Christmas Market: Go on a Weekend!

| December 1, 2014

I popped into Seligenstadt’s Christmas Market on Sunday to check out the artisan area in the Kloster, “Advent in the Kloster,” open to Weihnachtsmarkt visitors during the first three weekends of Advent.  The Kloster is filled with artisans from the Odenwald.  Just walking around the building and its grounds is worth heading over.
