Good episode? Give it some love!
When it comes to traditional holiday images, Germany's Bavaria is the heartland. Here we'll savor classic holiday themes: glittering trees, old-time carols, and colorful Christmas markets. Across the border in Austria, Salzburg celebrates the holidays with an alpine elegance as Christmas shopping lanes delight browsers, and locals mix worship with glorious music. The festive swirl of heartwarming sights, sounds, and smells of Christmas abound in the land where the season’s most loved carol, Silent Night, was first performed over 200 years ago.
