In Germany, Christmas is traditionally celebrated within the close family. During Advent one prepares for Christmas, gets presents for the loved ones, prepares special food like Christmas cookies, eats dishes like goose, carp and chestnuts and drinks mulled wine.

With this tour we take you to central Germany, to Hesse, Thuringia and Bavaria where you see how the simple people get ready for the "Fest", sing carols, bake cookies and socialize with "Glühwine". 

Highlights of this tour are: Weimar, the home of Schiller and Goethe and the town where the first public Christmas tree was displayed. Oberhof, the Wimbledon of Winter sports. Nuremberg, where the first Christmas market took place and gingerbread and mulled wine were first served.
