German Christmas Market Roundup
There are many wonderful things to see and do in Germany around Christmas: Stroll through festively decorated streets and explore the Christmas markets with their seasonal music and choir singing. Listen to the sounds of bells and trumpeters and attend one of the many concerts from classical to gospel in the churches and on outdoor stages.
Germany's Christmas markets are unique. If you're tired of commercialism taking over the holiday period and would like to experience a real traditional Christmas Market you definitely want to consider heading to one - or more - of Germany's many Christmas markets where the traditional gift items on offer are often handcrafts of real quality.
Homburg Flea and Antiques Market
The biggest flea and antiques market in southwest Germany, Homburg Flea and Antiques Market takes place on the first Saturday of the month, in the area known as the Forum, in front of the Homburg Rathaus (town hall) and the Landratsamt.
The flea market is open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and on sale are all the regular things you'd expect to find as well as antiques and handcrafts.
Visitors to the flea market are asked to use parking places in the town center or on the edge of town, and not to park in the parking lots of Aldi or Hela which are only for the use of customers of the two stores.
Am Forum, 66424 Homburg (Saar)
The next Homburg Flea and Antiques Market will be held on Saturday January 3, 2015
THE NEROBERG MOUNTAIN RAILWAY
126 Years - 1888 - 2014
Wiesbaden at its most romantic
Enjoy a unique experience – a ride on the Neroberg Mountain Railway, a historic monument! It is the oldest water ballast-driven cog-and-rack railway in Germany.
Since the service opened in 1888, Germany’s Year of the Three Emperors, the two original wagons – bearing Wiesbaden’s brightly coloured blue and yellow livery – have been rumbling up and down the Neroberg, Wiesbaden’s landmark mountain.
The ride along the viaduct to the upper station is like a journey back in time.
