Vancouver Christmas Markets

I love this place!!

It’s like a German Christmas Market. Not that I’ve ever been to one but all the food and majority of the goods seem to derive from there.

There’s the cutest shops with gorgeous gifts and decorations. All themed as little huts and you stroll around them while drinking delicious warm apple cider or mulled wine with rum.

Jay, Ka Lei, Tahlia, Carso, Lucas and I all headed down to explore, such a good night!

Choices for dinner are baffling. There’s German hot dogs, schnitzel, pasta, pretzels and pork knuckles.

I went with half a pork knuckle on a bun with sour kraut – I think I ate it in about two seconds it was so good!! Only $8.50 too yummmm my mouth is watering just thinking about it again!

We then went for a ride on the carousel – the big kids that we are. I’m not going to lie, it was fun!

Next up, baked apples! We had the original with cinnamon and sultanas but Carso & Ka Lei got the salted caramel and holy wow it was melt in your mouth goodness! I also tried the Black Forest which was a bit over bearing.

You pretty much can’t top that so we left afterwards. Can’t wait to go back!

  1. Rachael, glad you liked the Christmas market. There are definite elements of Vancouver’s version that reminds me of the markets back “home” in Germany: the food, the atmosphere, oh yes, the Glühwein, and even, the Käthe Wohlfahrt shop at the back. By the way, they’re not “hot dogs”; they’re sausages, or at the very least, Bratwurst (grilled sausages) – oh yes, there’s a huge difference. 🙂 Hope you go back soon; perhaps we’ll see you there, too!
