A visit to Bamberg, Germany's Medieval Christmas market and the main one on MaxPlatz. Includes nativity scenes from several churches and snow scenes of this wonderful German town.
Join me as I get a hands-on tutorial for making Germany's famous gingerbread Christmas cookies, Lebkuchen. You can do it, too! The authentic German homemade family recipe is is my book, A Travel for Taste - Germany, available by clicking the Shop tab at the top of the blog. It will be like you visited Nuremberg's Christmas market in person!
OMG, people, I realize I left out the best part of the apartment story!
Remember (and I know you remember because you hang on my every word and commit it to memory) that the first apartment I looked at in Bamberg was a one-room studio overlooking a courtyard in a semi-industrial area. Across from the apartment was a fitness studio that was being built out and would open soon. It was this construction that made the area look not quite so beautiful when we looked at the room.
Anyway, I had been so disappointed that I didn’t get this place. But, of course, now I have the larger place in Bischberg and that’s working out fine.
