The Royal flag flies over the castle while the fog settles in

The Hohenzollern family kicked off Germany’s annual Christmas Market season at their ancestral castle in the Swabian Alps, south of Stuttgart. Although it is not the country’s biggest Christmas Market, the German press is unanimous in saying it is the most beautiful. Over ten thousand people visited the castle in the Swabian Alps the last week end of November and the first week end of December to buy unique handmade gifts and taste regional specialties.

This year the Crown Prince of Prussia, George Frederich, had more to celebrate than the 20th edition of the Royal Weihnachtsmarkt. He also announce the birth of his fourth child, Prince Heinrich.
