Germany: Christmas Market in Leipzig

On Monday I got a postcard from Germany.

It shows the Christmas Market in Leipzig. The Christmas Market in Leipzig is one of the oldest and largest Christmas markets in Germany. It was held for the first time in 1458. Some of the attractions on the market include a Nativity Scene with real sheep and a giant Christmas Pyramid. Between 1997 and 2012 it was also home to the World's largest freestanding Advent calendar.  


The card was sent from the Postcrossing Meet-up in Leipzig.
Stamp:
Christmas (issued 30-11-2016)


Thank You very much Thomas!
