boats christmasAre Christmas markets and boats worlds at the antipodes? False. Try going to Germany, to Emden, a quaint seaside town in Lower Saxony (and the historic capital of East Friesland): here every year, from November 26 to December 23, comes theEngelmarkt. (opening image source: www.engelmarkt.info)

A large market in the harbor, with stalls and booths set up aboard festively decorated fishing boats, historic ships and sailing ships, on which you can climb to shop, munch on a good pretzel or lose yourself among the unmistakable scents of almonds, spices and gingerbread, cinnamon and vanilla, mulled wine and grog.

Every day at 5 p.m., Santa Claus distributes gifts to children, while the highlight is the arrival from the sea on Dec. 1 at 2 p.m. of Dutch St. Nicholas (Sinterklaas) and his Moorish servants.
