What do we do when it’s time for Christmas? We follow several age-old traditions where we drag out the Christmas tree, put the star on top, indulge in plum cake and of course, belt out carols at the top of our lungs. But how about we add a cherry to the cake by going to this gorgeous German Christmas Market in Delhi?

Since it’s a children-friendly event, you could tag your toddlers along and they wouldn’t be bored at all. There is a lot for them to do like taking part in a painting competition, visiting the shops to meeting a friendly Santa Claus who will be handing small presents out to them throughout.
Though the Christmas scene in Delhi is low-key as compared to Goa or even Kolkata – this fair kind of makes up for it by setting up a beautiful ambiance in the heart of central Delhi. You can’t expect anything else but a beautiful start to a merry Christmas here.
