A visit to the Wiesbaden Twinkling Star Market has become a yearly tradition for our family. Nestled right in the heart of one of Europe’s oldest spa cities, Wiesbaden, the Market is easy to love. It offers all of the things that are traditional of a German Christmas Market–Christmas decorations and music, vendors selling a variety of handmade and unique goods, food (traditional German and other), and the ever so popular Glühwein presented in a ceramic cup specific to the market. Our favorite things…German chocolate (prepared in ways we had not seen before attending this Market!), the kiddie train, the life-sized nativity scene, and the Christmas lights that seem to twinkle against a blue night sky.
