Walk anywhere in the city center of Darmstadt, and you are going to see Christmas preparation. All over the place.
This is a little shopping square near the city center. See the pretty lighting in the passageway? Love it. I’m a little curious about why they chose to put light-up reindeer antlers on the support poles, but hey, they look pretty, so I’m not complaining.
Yep, those are chandeliers made of Christmas lights hanging from the ceiling. This is a passageway that leads from the shopping square shown above to Luisenplatz, the city center.
Speaking of Luisenplatz, here are some half-done Weihnachtsmarkt stands. On Luisenplatz. Yep, the Christmas market here is held both on Luisenplatz and Marktplatz. And in-between. Christmas is a big deal here 🙂
This is a Weihnachtsmarkt stand with a Christmas-light reindeer on it. Yep, they have them here in Germany as well. 🙂 Also, take a close look at the giant pedestal holding up the statue of Ludwig there (green statue, reddish pedestal). ….see it? There are Christmas lights hanging from the top going all the way to the base! That is going to look epic lit up!
The Christmas market officially starts tomorrow, so soon I will have pictures of everything properly lit up! Stay tuned!
