One of the other Christmas Markets I’ve visited this year was in Dusseldorf, Germany. This market is quite different from the other Christmas markets because instead of one location, it is set on multiple locations around the city each with different themes. Also, their main attraction includes an ice skating rink. Since it was my first time going to this Christmas market, I was quite confused because of the multiple locations, however I did manage to find the ice rink and got some gluwhein as well. I went there on a Friday night, and compared to the other Christmas markets I’ve been to, this one seems to be less crowded – I think its because of how it’s set up (which makes it manageable to walk around and check out the stalls).
