Christmas Markets: Four Countries’ Holiday Magic with Tasty Treats

Join the Savvy Sightseer on a virtual visit to some of the best in Europe; all centered on the same theme, but each dramatically different. Valkenburg, in The Netherlands, offers a truly unusual atmosphere: in a labyrinth under castle ruins! Aachen, Germany, has Charlemagne’s Cathedral as a backdrop for its market. Set up as a village of chalets with a giant Ferris wheel, Liège in Belgium melds modern with traditional. At Kings Cross in London, England, mouthwatering artisanal cheeses, meats and baked goods tempt shoppers. Patrons will sample Dutch Kerstkransjes, sugar cookies that can double as ornaments; Printen, traditional German spice cookies; and Belgian Rocher Coco, crunchy, moist-inside coconut mounds. Recipes will be provided.
