I don’t always go to Germany, but when I do you betcha it’s around Christmas time. If there’s one thing the Germans know how to do it’s throwing a Christmas party and the Weihnachtsmarkt in Düsseldorf is my favorite. This year we went a little early, somewhere late October, and so I waited to share the photos until we were all in the Christmas spirit. I don’t have much to say about Düsseldorf, other than that you can buy Essie nail polishes for half the Belgian price and that they have all the stores a girl can dream of. There even is a Primark where you will not be trampled by thousands of unhinged women on a budget. I scored two lovely dresses and a beautiful top that I cannot wait to share in an outfit post soon. Also: German food.
General warning before you click on “read more”: you will get hungry.
The food, in order of appearance
Reibekuchen – Fried potato-pancakes made of mashed potatoes, flour and egg.
Bratwurst – a classic
Latte and a HUGE cappucino from a coffee place + store on the Schadowstrasse, almost next to Primark
hot white chocolate milk (I brought the cup home as a souvenir)
savory crêpe with ham and vegetables – to be found on the Engelmarkt
Eierlikör: warm eggnoch-type of drink
Poffertjes – Dutch, but I couldn’t pass them up!
Got to love Germany!
