Apparently I’ve fallen a little bit behind with my 52 Weeks | 52 Rolls project. Whilst I haven’t failed to shoot a roll per week, I’m finding it increasingly difficult to find time to develop the roll, scan the negatives and upload the photos. But that’s hardly surprising in the two weeks leading up to Christmas, isn’t it?
On Nikolaustag (Saint Nicholas Day) Roberto and I flew to Munich for a mini winter holiday. Three days were barely sufficient to walk the length and breadth of the old town, but the nippy weather (at some point on Saturday afternoon even snow made an appearance!) perfectly suited the Christmas Markets the city is famous for.
In all there are twentyish Christmas Markets located throughout the city of Munich, but we managed to visit only four. We swiftly walk through the main one which is held on the Marienplatz, in the heart of the city centre,
but stopped for Glühwein (mulled wine) and Gebrannte Mandeln (burnt sugar almonds) at the Medieval Christmas Market in Wittelsbacher Platz.
Then we went on for the so-called Christmas Village, which is held in front of the historic Residenz.
Such an exquisite traditional charm, don’t you agree?
