Oberhausen is a city in Germany close to Duesseldorf. It has the biggest shopping mall in Europe (CentrO) and it also hosts the biggest Christmas market in Germany. From where we live, it's about 2.5 hours driving (depends on whether there are traffic jams and how fast you drive through Germany, where as you probably know, there are often no speed limits on the highways).
All the shops were open till 10 p.m. and it was actually in the evening that there were the most people. Yesterday was the last day of the Christmas market. Luckily, there were enough parking lots for all the visitors, and they were free! Something which is quite unthinkable in Holland where the only thing you don't have to pay for yet, is the air you breathe.
Below are some of the pictures we took Saturday night:
All the photos were taken by my husband from his mobile.
