I don’t share the excitement of Christmas markets in the way that some people do, they just seem to be over-priced and commercialised. I’m not tempted by a Christmas drink of Glühwein standing outside when there’s a perfectly good pub 50 feet away which offers comfortable surroundings and imperial stout….
Anyway, with that scrooge mentality out of the way, I did have a little traipse around Poznan’s Christmas markets. It wasn’t busy at all when I visited, which was on a Tuesday evening at around 19:00 and I had expected a few more people. There has been an effort made to light up the statues located in each of the square’s corners though so it does feel a little festive.
