This year was our first visit to the Mainz Christmas Market. We have visited Mainz various times since moving to Eltville and love the energy that fills the city; it is both historic, yet modern. The Christmas Market proved to be no different. Set in the historic market square, it fulfilled every expectation we had of a German Christmas Market.

We attended the Christmas Market late in the season and it was crowded! Despite the beauty and ambiance of the Market, we found it extremely difficult to maneuver the stroller through it. So, we fought the crowd, grabbed a bite to eat, snapped some photos and made off with our real token…the Glühwein cup.
