Christmas markets are part of the German cultural experience that makes the holiday season particularly special, especially if you can’t spend it with loved ones back home. From the brightly lit huts to the aromas of roasted nuts, German Christmas markets sure know how to captivate the spirit of giving. They bring a sense of community that welcomes all to one of the most magical seasons of the year. They’re also an excellent opportunity to purchase uniquely European gifts to commemorate your time here and for family back home. If you’re planning to do a little holiday shopping, consider these ten gifts to put under the tree.   

1) Christmas Pyramids (Wiehnachtspyramide)

Whether you’re shopping for yourself or others, at Germany’s Christmas markets, you’ll never leave empty handed! Celebrate the season that keeps on giving by buying market treasures that can’t be found anywhere else. Fröhliche Weihnachten!
