Basel – France – Germany – Christmas Markets!!
Last week we went to Basel to visit the two huge Christmas Markets. As usual though, we went early in the day to do some exploring first. We walked over the border to Saint-Louis [France], then to Huningue [France], then we crossed that amazing bridge in between the 3 countries and walked into Weil am Rhein [Germany]. Then we finally walked back to Basel and visited the markets!
As for the markets, they were amazing! These were probably the biggest, prettiest and highest quality [in terms of actual shopping items] Christmas markets I've ever seen anywhere! I even managed to find myself "Francesco Rubinato" glass pen… which was a real surprise! [More about that later…]
So… pictures are here.
