We went to Germany this weekend for the Stuttgart Christmas market. It's only 3 hours from Zurich. I love the Christmas markets at night - the lights are beautiful and there are interesting things like this gigantic nutcracker everywhere you look.
Here it is in the day. The girls were happy with plenty of sweet treats - and it's nice that there are some cheep trinkets for them to buy like little wooden ornaments and pretty marbles.
There were several kids rides - Claire and Bea went on a ferris wheel and then the three of us rode a mini train. It's all so charming and cute.
