I dont know about you guys, but once the cold November breezes start blowing in, I am dying for December to get started.

Luckily for us in Germany, Christmas is not one day but a whole month of activities, the best part being the fabulous ChristkindlMarkts

 

My favourite so far is the Christmas Market on Fraueninsel in Chiemsee.

Although the weather outside is frightful, in my heart its absolutely delightful

 

Only accessable by small festively decorate shuttle boats from the local towns around the lake
