Win A Family Trip To The Christmas Markets In Stuttgart

When I think of Christmas Markets, I think of Germany, or is it just me?

It conjures up visions of the Nutcracker and wooden huts selling festive food and drinks. Warm snuggly coats and bobble hats. Of course there are German Markets popping up all over now, and they are all lovely. All beautiful replicas of the original German Markets, great places to visit with your family. Perfect to get into the festive spirit, and keep that festive feeling alive when you have older children.

Lets face it? The sparkle can dull slightly as the kids get older. I hear people saying all the time Christmas is not the same any more. And that just needn’t be the case. It’s a time to make new traditions, maybe swap visits to Santa with visits to Christmas markets, full of the hustle and bustle that teens crave. Show them the world and celebrate Christmas traditions in other regions.

For many, many years we have arranged a lodge break just before Christmas, it had become a tradition and something we had all looked forward too. An enclosed environment with Christmas carols and Santa that just oozed that festive feeling. But something happened last year, we realised that sadly we had outgrown it. The boys had exhausted every activity and it all seemed a bit small.

But this is not a time to feel sad, it is a time to embrace the fact that we can now start planning festive trips abroad instead. Change our traditions; make them better, more exciting. Make them fit our growing family.

Next week I am off the Germany, arghhh

I am off the Stuttgart to check out the Christmas Markets. To share what they have to offer, see what all the fuss is about. The Christie boys are green with envy. Especially Joe, who has been coveting a trip to the V8 hotel and the Mercedes-Benz Museum for sometime now. I have assured him we will visit next year, he can see the markets for himself and check out the car museums. And with flights available to Stuttgart Airport from several airports in the UK it is an easy place to travel to.

    Oooh this is so exciting. People always tell me how amazing these markets are but I guess you have to experience it live really don’t you? Hope you have the best time, can’t wait to see your pics!!

    I agree, there’s something so magical about the kids getting older and being interested in the same things we are. I’d not heard of the car museum but I know the Bug would be desperate to visit if he was aware of it. We’re a little busy this December, but next year I’m putting the Christmas markets on my list. The V8 hotel looks awesome too!

    Oh how exciting, I’m itching to visit Stuttgart although not sure those dates are doable. German Christmas markets are the best, I always enjoy them more than any other. Just back from Berlin funnily enough having taken in the wonderful smells and jovial atmosphere. You’ll have a wonderful time, enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚
