Christmas Markets: Seen one, Seen them all?

We've been to four Christmas markets and three of the four have been very similar.

The markets in Morges, Basel, and Colmar were all very crowded and selling the same junk. The only difference was the type of food being sold.

The market in Barcelona was mostly dedicated to Nativity figures. At least 80% of the booths were selling these figures vs. maybe 20% at the other three markets.

Rumor has it that Vienna has a fantastic Christmas market, so we've put that on the list for next year. I'm hoping it is something special instead of just more of the same
