Hamburg Christmas Markets: Jungfersteig
Just around the corner from the Rathaus is another Christmas market, at Jungfersteig, which is the area right along the Alster lake in central Hamburg. The market is more modern, with modern tents instead of wooden sheds holding all the stalls. There is less crowds here, and more room to spread out. Right now, this city at night is when it is at its most beautiful. Most main streets are lit up and inviting, which is important in the cold, dreary, rainy days we have been having. Feels good to be here at this time of year, and after a few more gluhweins down the gullet(you tired of me talking about this yet?), I really appreciate Hamburg.
