Trierer Weihnachtsmarkt, or Trier’s Christmas Market

A glimpse of Trier’s market

Trier’s Christmas market has a pleasant array of appealing vendors in its 95 stands. You’d be hard-pressed not to find some gifts. The booths offer decorative items, candles, ceramics and wooden and glass crafts, knitwear and wooden toys.

Trier, Germany’s oldest town, is located about half an hour from Luxembourg. For more of its history, please see last year’s post.

Preparing the flammenküche

The best flammenküche I’ve had at any market!

The typical food is here (bratwurst, glühwein, etc.), and the potato pancakes and the flammenküche, are better than at most other markets.

I like the elaborate, rustic stands

The market is situated in the city center on the Main Market and in front of the Trier Cathedral.

Monday – Wednesday: 10:30 a.m. – 8:30 p.m., Thursday – Saturday: 10:30 a.m. – 9:30 p.m., Sunday: 11:00 a.m. – 8:30 p.m.
