Christmas Market Bremen - part 2

We spent a lot of time exploring the market. There were lots of cool things to see and the darker it got the more beautiful everything looked, all lit up.

I got a large cup of hot chocolate with mint.

On a small square we found a tower with bells next to it.

When the clock struck six the bells started playing and a part of the tower started turning to show pictures of people. I think it was about important travelers. I saw a viking and Columbus, and other explorers and travelers. It was really cool.

After we saw the moving tower we went to get another drink. I got Gl├╝hwein with cherries. It was so good!!!

We saw a lot of cool things and lots of pretty lights. Finally when we were getting tired we went back to the house of the friend where we were staying. It was a really cool day!

Christmas Market in Bremen

I went to the Christmas Market in Bremen - Germany - last weekend

We would be staying at the house of a friend so we first put our luggage there and then walked towards the city center. I spotted this statue along the way.

I explored it of course.

There were lots of cool buildings.

A church!

It was the Dom of Bremen.
We had to see it from up close of course.

I think this is a gryphon.

The inside of the Dom was beautiful.

Oh, we reached the Christmas Market.

There were lots of stands with Christmas ornaments and other cool Christmassy stuff.

And lots of Christmas decorations everywhere.

And look what I spotted!

The Bremen town musicians!
There's a really cool fairytale about these animals, although I think it would have been even cooler if there was a pig with them also.

Luckily I also found a really cool pig statue as we were exploring the market and the city.

We also found a windmill.

This is the main train station. There was a Christmas market there as well.

When it got darker the lights everywhere made things look really beautiful.

What a cool Christmas Market.

More pictures tomorrow!
