At the Hitzacker Christmas Market

Selling handmade soaps and keeping the resistance against nuclear power up

The cozy mood at the Hitzacker Christmas Market is always a joy to experience for me. Whereas most other markets have surrendered to full blown consumerism and pushing Xmas-Kitsch over the counter, the half day event on the Hitzacker Island has kept the character of a meeting of the village people and of surrounding whereabouts.

It’s more about having a chat in the open with friends and enjoying a Bratwurst or a Glühwein – a hot wine peppered with cinnamon and schnapps – than to do much purchases. You guessed it: Things are getting merry pretty soon – sort of a warm highlight in dark winter times, but everything stays easy.
