Need advice on seeing German Christmas markets

Jump to last reply

The German Christmas markets have been on my "bucket list" for some time, so I'm hoping to be able to mark it "done" next year. I have several questions: (1) tour or self-drive? DH is a good driver, can handle icy road conditions, and has lots of experience driving in Europe. However, I'm not comfortable driving/riding on icy roads. I think I might prefer a short tour -- any recommendations? (2) clothing - where we live we have winter about 4 days each year, so my winter wardrobe consists of one old leather jacket worn over a turtleneck wool sweater. So, packing light, what do I need to have so as not to freeze to death? Especially need advice on footwear. And I don't want to spend a fortune on winter-wear that I'l seldom-if-ever wear again. (3) Which markets? DH isn't really excited about Christmas markets, so three would be the most I think he would put up with. Nuremberg is a must. Which other 2? I'll be most appreciative of all recommendations. Thanks.
