在 Tübingen 有个圣诞月才有的巧克力市场，每逢十二月，这里就会很热闹。。每天从早上十时开始就会有源源不绝的人潮往那里逛去。。而且他们的街道还会有路牌指示大家巧克力市场在哪儿。。
I went to a Chocolate Market at Tübingen, Germany. This Chocolate Market is held once a year in the month of December. The funny part to me is that they even have road signs telling the people where is the Chocolate Market situated at.
虽然我第一天去的时候天色已经暗了也很冷，但却很好玩，因为那儿有太多的食物和巧克力在等着我们，香肠面包也有很多种类，还有热乎乎的有酒精 (Glühwein) 或没酒精的饮料。。这些都是在这儿才有的食品。。最重要的是每个巧克力档口几乎都可以试吃。。嘻嘻。。这也是我觉得最欣慰的地方了。。他们还很富创意的使用投影器把预设好的图案投射在建筑物上，真的是很漂亮。。而且还是做到好像真的涂上去的漆似的。。
Although on the first day it was dark and cold, but I still have lot of fun in the market. There are lot of food and drinks waiting for us, such as different kind of sausage sandwiches, alcoholic (Glühwein) or non-alcoholic (Kinderpunsch) drinks. All the drinks are pretty special in this event. They even have “Chocolate beer” during this festival, it’s actually a normal beer, but with an aftertaste like a chocolate.
And the best part is they provide us the sample of chocolates to eat. This is what I am so happy about while attending this event. The people here are so creative, they use projector to show the decoration on the building there which really looks like real painting. Great job!!
第二天早上，我告诉我的老公，我还想再去巧克力市场买巧克力。。所以我们便在去那儿闻名的城堡的路上时往巧克力市场走去。。买到了我想买的入口即化 Gaufrais 巧克力后，我们便前往城堡去了。。在前往城堡前，我们经过了一家售卖便宜又好喝的咖啡店。。大约2欧元就可在寒冷的天气中享受一杯热乎乎的咖啡，真的是太爽了！！
The next day, I told my hubby that I still wanted to buy some chocolates, so we went there again as we are going to the Hohentübingen Castle (Schloß Hohentübingen) and we will pass by the Chocolate Market. After buying the Gaufrais Chocolate which I would like to use it as a gift for my friends and family, then we went to the castle. While we are on our way to the castle, we pass by a coffee shop which sell tasty and affordable coffee. Around 2 euro for a cup of hot coffee in the winter is just excellent!!!
Actually, me and my friends didn’t went into the castle, because you need to buy a ticket to enter. We just walk around at where we can enter in the castle. I like the trees there, because there are different with what I usually saw in Malaysia. Maybe its due to the weather, and that’s is why I like the trees here. The trees looked dried out with no leaves, as there’re preparing for winter season.
In short, if you have extra time to walk around, then you can give a visit here but don’t put very high expectation, its a nice event, but there’s nothing to be hyped about. The chocolates here are not very cheap, and they are no sale of chocolate in the Chocolate Market too. The best deal you can get here are by tasting the chocolate samples from different countries in this event.
