    Well-researched on the "Fat Baby with Fish". I'm a big fan of European Christmas Markets too - especially the sausages and mulled wine bit.

    I was in Aachen in 2002 and planning to visit it this year (German shepherds World Championship will be held there in September). Thanks Maria for the virtual tour. It's quite on the theme - Christmas shopping tips!
