Every Christmas Season we've been going to Dusseldorf to see the Markets and Decorations. The photos below are just a small sampling of what we saw.
There are open air markets on every street, some stalls even have actual buildings erected. Music flows from everywhere, hot food and drinks are abundant. The smells and sites create an instant Holiday feeling.
If you ever have the opportunity to visit, make sure you see the animated Steiff toys in the windows of the Kaufhof Department Store. These are world famous exclusive bears and animals and each year the windows show new scenes and activities. A few of the window scenes are shown below.
