Rheda-Wiedenbrück Christmas Market (visited by Rachel)

1 Comment

Thanks to Grace’s suggestion, we visited the Christkindlmarkt in Rheda-Wiedenbrück last weekend (Nov 26 – Dec 23). It is a lovely market, small but nice stalls and lots of good things to eat. It also has a nice atmospheric setting surrounded by the wooden timbered medieval buildings. We enjoyed walking around the town admiring the old architecture. The main shops were also open on Sunday. A nice afternoon’s winter outing.

Finnish Christmas Bazaar


Should you want to have a taste of a  Nordic Christmas, do join us for the Finnish Christmas Bazaar. The address and times are on the flyer. The easiest way to get there is to take the Strassen Bahn 3 to Babenhausen Sud, get off at the last stop and walk  5 min to the venue.

We offer hand made crafts, some Finnish design, books, etc. There is a cafe with all home made goodies, including of course salmon soup.
