Night Walk

A stroll through our town at night-time.It is especially picturesque during the Christmas season with the streetlights and a real evergreen tree placed outside of each of the shops. Altogether, there were approximately 100 trees placed throughout our town this Christmas!

As a symbol of good luck, depictions of chimney sweeps as well as pigs or dice are a popular New Years gift in Germany. Our local bakery makes these out of marzipan. You can see them displayed in these two pictures.
