The tour is a great way to see the markets. Wolfgang took us to 4 markets each with its own personality. You can tell he took the time to research the different places to find the most interesting. He introduced us to the different gluweins and punsches as well as food specialties. He is a good conversationalist and made it a lot of fun. We would recommend this tour.

This experience is super fun! The cooking is basic, which makes it very accessible to people who don’t do a lot of baking or cooking like myself. But also you cook a variety of things so it’s very engaging! The singing during dinner is AMAZING! The space they have has wonderful acoustics. Highly recommend this experience.

Wolfgang and his team were excellent from the get go. From our earlier enquiry they were responsive, accomodating, and informative. We had 2 kids with us and they went out of their way to connect with our children and made sure that we had an amazing Christmas market experience. Wolfgang and his team got them tickets on rides, showed interest and made everyone feel involved. We had an amazing time and we would recommend this to anyone. Thanks for some great memories
