No German Christmas market is complete without gluhwein (hot spiced wine). As locals catch an evening drink with their colleagues on tall wooden tables and visitors wander the market, the sweet smell of spice permeates the air and all can be seen hand-hugging their mugs to ward off the winter chill. At the end of the evening, you can either keep your mug as a souvenir or return it for a refund.
