Special Christmas Market in Germany Is Solely Dedicated to Dogs

We might just have to book a flight to Cologne.

If you're considering taking a little getaway during the holiday season, the famous Christmas markets in Germany just might be on your bucket list. And if you happen to be a pet parent who can't resist spoiling your fur baby this time of year, get this one. There's a Christmas market in Cologne that's dedicated to dogs. Did we mention that in addition to all of the treats, toys, and dog clothes, the market is also on a farm where you can meet other animals?

The market is highlighted in a new TikTok video shared by @helloitsjasper, and it looks nothing short of incredible.

All of the dogs visiting with their parents is the best part of the whole experience! Of course, it would be tough to concentrate on the vendor booths, what with all the beautiful pups wandering around. But something tells us we'd manage.

People who watched the clip are just excited about this place as we are. One TikTok viewer, @Seval & Evva was surprised to learn about this market, saying, "Excuse me, I live here. I am German and did not know this!" Other people said the same thing!

I'd die to go with my girl!" The video creator answered, "Yes, in Cologne! I haven't seen any in Bavaria, but if I find one I'll let you know! I'm keeping my eyes peeled for dog markets now."
