Sights from the Frankfurter Weihnachtsmarkt

Sweets for sale

Wow - what great timing. We didn't realize it coming into the city, but the annual Christmas market was in full swing today, and boy, was it packed full of people. All sorts of things were being sold, be it arts and crafts, roasted nuts and sweets, and of course lots of sausages and potatoes. Gl├╝hwein was available at a countless number of stalls, with pretty much everyone sipping away at the piping hot beverage rather than a cold beer.

Champignons mit Knobi

We grabbed a number of things, be it some Currywurst, fried potato cakes, or this bowl of mushrooms topped with some kind of garlic sauce called Knobi. Admittedly one reason I got it was out of sheer vengeance after being denied mushrooms so many times back in Barcelona this past week, but these steaming hot things were great eating in today's near-freezing temperatures either way.
