German Tuesday - Christmas window display takes you to the zoo
Christmas markets aren’t the only giveaway that it’s not long until the holidays. In my hometown Bonn, a sure sign is the unveiling of the Christmas window display of department store Galeria Kaufhof, featuring Steiff animal toys.
The window in all its glory.
This year’s theme is a visit to the zoo and the amount of work that goes into creating the different scenes like the entrance, the snack bar or even the loved-up couple on a bench is amazing. Every year you can see children with their noses pressed against the windows discovering all the little things but it's even very popular with the older generations.
The window looks different every year - last year's theme was a jungle whereas in 2012 it was a wintery scene which you can see here.
