Welcome to Part 3 and the last installment of my day exploring the historic city of Koblenz. We happened upon the Christmas Market guided by laughter and cheerful banter between children baking in one of the market huts.
Down some stairs and through a passage we entered the market itself which was already busy with visitors enjoying a glass (or more…) of Gluehwein. It was noon and the food stands had long line ups for sausage on a bun, Reibekuchen (potato latkes), cookies, sugared almonds, and other sinful morsels of food.
We carried on without temptation and found ourselves at Sacred Heart Church which looked imposing. It was first erected in the early 1900s, completely destroyed during WWII and rebuilt. Here is a link to Koblenz through the ages, an informative read with images.
What, in Germany and no stop for food? It was too early to stop for the ubiquitous coffee and cake. We spotted a Spanish Restaurant across the street and remembered the great time we had in Barcelona nearly two years ago. We enjoyed a fabulous spread at El Castillo Tapas Bar. Well worth a stop when you visit Koblenz!
Hope you enjoyed Koblenz in three parts. I have so many images to sort. Stay tuned for the next travelog entry soon.
