Edinburgh Christmas Market

It's Christmas market season! After four years in the Dolomites, we're pretty well-versed in European Christmas markets and so we were happy to find that Edinburgh has a great one of its own. Here are a few pictures, if you'd like to see....

Typical Christmas markets are filled with stalls where you can buy presents, treats, sausages and gluhwein and this one is no exception. We did a bunch of Christmas shopping here and added to our ornament collection (we have a Christmas tree ornament from every market we've been to).

We were also pleasantly surprised by the real German sausages that we found....

....and these are the best donuts EVER.

They also have multiple ice skating rinks, rides for kids and a Christmas tree maze! We would highly recommend it if you're ever in the area in December.

PS - Past Christmas markets in Salzburg, Prague, Munich, Lienz and Switzerland...and a round-up of our favorites.
