riesenrad 29.11.2013: Christmas is coming! This is indeed the best time of year to experience Germany. A visit to the Christmas Market ("Weihnachtsmarkt") in Düsseldorf with the fellow LAP students sounds interesting! Either a glass of "Glühwein" in the lively street, or a little breeze along the Rhein River makes it hard for us to forget this wonderful evening.
