Winter marks the start of a magical time of Christmas markets in Germany. The festive bazaars attract millions of people, including DW's Eesha Kheny who visited Cologne for her very first Christmas market experience.
Dresden's Striezelmarkt, which claims to be Germany's oldest, opens this Wednesday (Nov, 28) for the 584th time. As on other German Christmas Markets, here too, security is a permanent fixture.
Scented candles. Loose leaf tea? Forget hygge. Believe it or not, Germany has been quietly commodifying coziness for centuries, says DW's Kate Ferguson.
