Known here in Lüneburg as the Historischer Christmarkt, this is a special Christmas market that takes place for just one weekend each year. Since neither the German boyfriend or I had ever been, we decided to stop by on Saturday evening.
Unlike a traditional German Christmas market, which has wooden huts draped in Christmas lights, the Medieval Christmas market attempts to remain authentic to the Renaissance style. This means no electric lights, traditional clothing, and handmade goods.
While this may sound sweet, we weren’t really impressed. It was basically just a dark and dreary market with sparse points of candlelight.
There was one upside, however: the bratwurst cost one euro less than at the regular Christmas market in Lüneburg.
