I know it’s such a cliché to say this, but I honestly have no idea how Christmas time came this quickly. All of a sudden, I’m back at home at my parent’s house in the rural German middle of nowhere with the dog warming my feet and it’s almost Christmas Day.

The last few months have been a little crazy with work and I felt like I was constantly busy, which sadly resulted in not blogging and photographing as much as I would have loved to.

Luckily, my pre-Christmas weekends were stuffed with quite a bit of domestic travel and so I at least got around to take my camera out once a week to capture Christmas time in Germany.

Christmas time in Goslar, Germany

Last weekend, I had a friend visit me in Göttingen, and since it was her first time ever in the German state of Lower Saxony I was excited to introduce her to my current hometown and the super cute (UNESCO site!) city of Goslar. We were planning on eating tons of delicious (fried) food and warming up with many steaming hot Glühwein cups to get in the Christmas mood — even though the weather was sadly not on our side. I assume all Germany residents were struggling with getting in the Christmas spirit this year, because December has been insanely gray and rainy so far, but Goslar absolutely worked its Christmas charm on us.

That’s why I decided to share my best photos from pretty Goslar to spread the Christmassy prettiness we encountered there. Because nothing says “Merry Christmas from Germany” more than atmospheric Christmas market photos from the cutest medieval town in Lower Saxony, right?
