Germans love a good walk. What better place to stretch one's legs in Hamburg than in a huge park. Planten un Blomen is a huge green space in the St Pauli district. Handy for us as we were staying in the nearby Superbude.
There are markets and there are markets. Christmas in Paris is something completely magical - even more so if you are lucky enough to find yourself at The Louvre where the nearby Jardin de Tuileries Christmas Market is in full swing - and this is some market.
