German Of The Day: Weihnachtsmärkte

That means Christmas markets. Then there are, of course, Weihnachtsmärkte 2020.


Spurred on by Chancellor Angela Merkel to come up with a “cohesive, collective answer” on how Germany should try to get the second wave of the coronavirus pandemic in check, state premiers are working on new proposals for the period from December 1…

In the broadest strokes, the restrictions imposed this November are set for an extension for at least three weeks, until December 20.


One response

  1. A year ago, we attended a wedding in Essen. My wife up till then always visited Europe in the Spring, early Fall or Summer. She had never seen a Weihnactsmarkt. She was totally in love with the gingerbread and Gluehwein! It would be a shame if Merkel closes this German tradition. Especially where everyone is outside. Just wear masks and keep two meters apart.
