A ride in the postal coach
One of the staple elements of the Christmas Market is the stagecoach of the Museum for Communication offering round trips for market visitors. Since 1950, the 1939 reconstruction of a "Berline" type stagecoach with two compartments, seating nine, of 1874, has been travelling around the Old Town during Christmas Market time. The Museum for Communication also provides a second, slightly smaller stagecoach, a reconstruction of a so-called "omnibus" of around 1900. The carriage co-driver plays the horn during the ride. Inside is no heat and it is compact like in the old days. It is much fun though. A welcomed break after eating all those goodies.
And today also marks the start of our give-a-way no. 2, it runs from now until 6 Dec midnight. You can enter by leaving a comment in this post. The prize is a set of three tree ornaments from Kaethe Wohlfahrt, hande made in Germany. All items are assembled and painted by hand. They are numbered. The set consists of a tree, a school bus and a car. The winner will be posted 7 December and has to contact me within 24 hrs or another winner will be selected.
