mulled wine for Christmas

In the London market for magic: Mulled wine and festive cheer at the best Christmas markets.

In London, everybody looks at Hyde Park and Winter Wonderland during this Christmas season, the people’s choice and it appears their only hope to find both roasted sausages and mulled wine. But London is not only Hyde Park.. Father Christmas goes everywhere. This coming festive season we experience hundreds of Christmas markets emerging in the capital and most populous city of England and the United Kingdom.

Looking at Germany, the country known as King of the Christmas markets – with a whopping 125 popping up over the festive period – Nuremburg in the German state of Bavaria is home to the world’s largest. Hundreds of stalls decorated in red and white cloth offer roast sausages, gingerbread and traditional ornaments. Vendors are under strict rules. No tat here – this is the real authentic deal. Tuck into lebkuchen – famous German Christmas biscuits and feuerzangenbowle, the tastiest gluhwein laced with rum and/or brandy – and often set alight.

Can you imagine Rainer’s Bavarian Grill serving on Christmas markets without offering Mulled Wine? The smell of ginger bread, hot pretzel and mulled wine is so important for the visitors of Xmas markets and this is what attracts the crowds.

Rainer’s Bavarian Grill will be serving at this year’s festivities, for the first time, in Walthamstow, London E17.. and it will be food and fun.

Walthamstow is to launch it’s Christmas market. A perfect occasion for Europe’s longest market mile promising thousands of visitors to this spectacular place! Bargain hunters and visitors for designer shops, Walthamstow has something to offer for everybody! We have just applied for a temporary event notice, something as someone who offers a food establishment needs to have in order to sell alcoholic drinks. We have explained the importance for us to serve mulled wine in addition to our roasted sausages and Christmas Stollen.


Rainer’s Bavarian Grill will be suspended between the 2nd of December and the 9th of December due to an all-important family event. The owner’s mother (bearer of one of the highest civilian awards for caring for the community!) in Germany celebrates her 80th birthday in some style and we (all family members of course!) were ‚of course‘ not able to decline the invitation to join in.
