Two days ago Dortmunds Christmas Market opened, so Polyvios, my mother and I took a little stroll over it. The Dortmunder Christmas Market is one of the biggest Christmas Markets in Germany with over 300 stalls where handcrafted goods, Christmas decorations, toys and much more goods were displayed, next to different food specialites from all over the world.
One of its (literally!) highlights is the 45 meter high Christmas tree which is illuminated 48,000 lights and is also said to be the worlds largest Christmas Tree. Unfortunately, it i not illuminated at the moment. I think it will be illuminated after the first Advent, when Christmas time officially begins.
I ‚, thinkin of going next Sunday again with my mother to make pictures of the illuminated tree. But we couldn’t resist to buy some of the annual Christmas mugs already. They are really nice this year with skyline of Dortmund pictured on them.
