Christmas Markets



Destinations for Christmas Markets 


Budapest, Hungary 


The Vörösmarty Square Christmas Market, regarded as one of the best in Europe, is adorned with nativity sets, handicrafts, and a massive fir tree. As you stroll around the vendors and savor warm Hungarian honey cookies, the aroma of cinnamon wafts from scalding wine cups. It's a sensory feast.


Prague, Czech Republic 


Even during off-peak hours, a large number of people frequent this Christmas market in Prague, making it the busiest and most well-known. Nevertheless, despite the massive crowds, it's still worth a visit as this is by far Prague's most exquisite Christmas market.


Krakow, Poland


Warsaw and Kraków are two of Poland's most visited tourist spots. But there won't be throngs or overcrowding. On the other hand, December does bring with it the majority of the Christmas celebrations and the city's main draw, the Christmas Market.


Edinburgh, England


With festive entertainment for the whole family, including traditional Christmas Markets, funfair rides, amazing live outdoor events, delectable food and drink, and much more, Edinburgh's Christmas transforms the lovely city center.


London, England


One of the most festive shopping experiences in London is visiting the Christmas markets, which come to life at this time of year with sparkling lights, handcrafted treats, and a generous helping of festive spirit.


Vienna, Austria 


Vienna's Christmas markets are usually elegant events. Wood, straw, glass, ceramics, fabric, and enough food and drink to feed a blue whale predominate; plastic is scarce. The markets are great places to shop, but they're worth going even for the ambience alone.


Basel, Switzerland 


One of the most beautiful and spacious Christmas markets in Switzerland is the one in Basel, which is located between the Barfüsserplatz and Münsterplatz. There will be a distinct aroma of mulled wine as we commemorate the customary Basler Weihnacht at the well-liked Adväntsgass im Glaibasel and the Basel Christmas market, which was named Best Christmas Market in Europe in 2021.


Copenhagen, Denmark


Copenhagen has some of the greatest and biggest Christmas markets in all of Denmark. Tivoli is the one you must see if you can only visit one. Although Tivoli is enchanting all year round, a trip there right before Christmas is especially memorable.


Strasbourg, France


Strasbourg's Christmas market is well worth visiting. It will quickly put you in the holiday mood because it is the birthplace of Christmas, and there are 13 markets to explore, so you won't get bored. Strasbourg boasts a 30-meter Christmas Tree with more than 7km of lights, and the city is lovely and easy to navigate on foot.


Alberobello, Italy 


Even in the winter, one of Puglia's top tourist destinations is Alberobello. Due to its location in Puglia's countryside, lights, ornaments, and the Nativity add to its splendor throughout the holiday season.


Colmar, France


The town decorates to the nines for Christmas, and a visit to its market is highly recommended. The center of Colmar offers a wide variety of lodging choices. The five-star boutique hotel La Maison des Tetes is housed in a venerable early 17th-century structure.


Bratislava, Slovakia 


The sight of the mountains completely blanketed in snow is breathtaking. The majority of the rivers and lakes are frozen. The streets and highways are completely covered in snow. For those who are passionate about snow, winter is the ideal season to visit Bratislava.

The Christmas Market in Brussels is a true winter wonderland. Every year, this quaint market in the Place Saint Catherine provides a window into the past with more than 200 classic wooden chalets brimming with holiday-appropriate finds and presents from the area
