Santa Croce Christmas Market

Every year, the 500 year old Christmas market of the German town Heidelberg, sets up in the beautiful Santa Croce square. It is the biggest Christmas market in Florence, and carries on typical german traditions.

The market’s stalls have items for the Nativity, gift ideas, and food glorious food! It also offers typical german products such as strudel, and gigantic pretzels!

 

It was magical walking through the market, and I got to sample wonderful Vin Brûlée (the Italian version of mulled wine), the delicious and spicy mix of warmed wine, sliced lemon, cinnamon, start anise, and other spices.

  1. The mulled wine is called gluhwein here and we always get a cup from the Twijnstraat Christmas market here in Utrecht and then go over to the canal wharf to sit and enjoy it. I’ll miss that tradition, but at least I don’t have to give up the gluhwein, just the lovely oliebollen (a sort of dense doughnut) that are a Dutch tradition this time of year.
