It's beginning to look a lot like...

The Weihnachtsmärkte (Christmas Markets) have opened in Munich! The perfect place to get into the Christmas spirit, even if it is raining (and not snowing.)

I decided to walk over to the Market at the Chinese Tower in the English Garten (the Munich equivalent of central park) during my lunch break today.

the "Chinese Tower" looms in the background
Because of the persistant drizzel, there was hardly a soul there, but it was wonderful - soft music playing in the background, I bought myself a steaming bowl of Sauerkraut and walked from stand to stand, searching for Christmas gifts and just taking it all in. As a treat, I bought myself a Lebkuchen with Marzipan and Cherry Liquor for dessert. mmmm.

What, pray tell, does this all have to do with wedding planning? Well, it doesn't strictly, but I'm always on the lookout for inspiration. Looky what I bought!

see the pretty floating berries? (sorry for the cellphone pic..)

Cassis Liquor, homemade from fresh Bavarian garden berries. My mind is racing over the possibilities of serving a Bavarian version of a Kir Royale at the Wedding?.

Looks delicious, huh?

I'll keep you posted on my finds as I plan to visit each of Munich's ten Christmas Markets on my lunch breaks over the next weeks.

Happy December 1st everyone!

I love the idea of serving kir royale. It's such a classy drink and that homemade cassis looks gorgeous. :)
