Live music, a covered kids play craft area and vintage carousel, delicious food from Bratwurst and gooey raclette to mulled wine served from a backpack! Of course there are loads of instagrammable backdrops including the walk in Christmas tree, the lit tunnel and the stunning frame overlooking the water.
