This is a traditional Christmas market. It is usually happening from the beginning of December until the 23rd or 24th of December. A Christmas market is an event in Germany where people eat and drink outside in the cold, enjoying traditional Christmas market food and mulled wine. You can also buy crafted gifts such as wood work or hand made candels but most people go for the smell of food and spices. The market in Trier is especially pretty because it is not tacky or commericialized in the way other Christmas markets can be. A must see if you are in the area at the time.
