Hamburg Christmas Markets: Ganzemarkt

This market is great, just outside the center of town....smaller, less crowded, and they had Feuerzangenbowle....a gluhwein drink that has rum added, which has been filtered through a big chunk of sugar. It is served in ceramic, handle-less mugs. A more traditional drink, it is much smoother than gluhwein, and tastes perfect on cold, wet nights like we have been having. A perfect accompaniment to the drink are some Schmalzkuchen...basically fresh, hot powdered donuts. Oh man.
