I recently was lucky enough to come across a new book that transported me to Germany at Christmas. While I have always loved the German countryside, architecture, and culture, I had no idea that Germany celebrated Christmas in such a magical way.
The book title is 150 German Christmas Markets: Where to Go and What to Buy. The title says it all. There are descriptions of the cities you can visit, special dates and events that you need to know about, and what traditional Christmas goods, food, and drink to buy. Each area is enhanced with full-color photos.
Even if you are an armchair traveler, after reading this delightful book by Joy Anderson, you will feel like you’ve experienced Germany at Christmas and just might start making plans for a trip there for next year.
Anderson also includes supplemental travel information such as air travel and rail travel, as well as Christmas market cruises and land tours.
This book should be in every traveler’s library.
Right now, 150 German Christmas Markets is available in both a PDF edition and a Kindle edition. Visit GermanyAtChristmas.com for ordering information and lots of wonderful information about, and photos of, German Christmas markets.

If you’re planning to visit New York City, now or in the future, you’ll definitely want to buy a New York Pass if you’ll be doing some sightseeing. New York City attractions are expensive!

And not just the Empire State Building and museums and the Statue of Liberty. You will also have free access to the New York Skyride, Circle Line River Cruise, and NBC Studio Tours.
One of the best things about the New York Pass is that you don’t have to wait in line to get into some of New York City’s busiest attractions.
