A Candle Christmas (and Cherries too!)
A festive day out…
December heralds the Christmas season, and we’ve got a day to get you in the mood for Christmas!
One of the enduring images of Christmas is of candles burning brightly, offering a warm glow to the season. Today we’re visiting a delightful shop that specialises in candles. In the main street of Hahndorf is the Hahndorf Candlemaker. This fascinating shop sells high quality candles, including stunning scented candles, traditional candles, and even unique peeling candles! But this shop is more than just a candle store. It also sells hand made German folk art, made in the Erzgebirge Mountains. In December the shop is a festive place with special Christmas displays and products, so there really is no better time to visit.
A big feature of our December tour is always a delicious Christmas-style lunch! Our feast today is at the wonderful Auchendarroch. Not only will we be able to relax and enjoy a special meal, but we can also take the opportunity to wander in the historic Auchendarroch House. The home has recently had significant restoration work, and it’s a delight to wander and enjoy.
That sounds like a great day, but there’s still one more important visit to make (no, we’re not going to see Santa!). Our last visit for the day is one of the Adelaide Hills cherry farms for the chance to pick up some freshly picked, top quality cherries!
Join us for a great day and enjoy getting into the spirit of Christmas with friends!
