Christmas Markets

Celebrate the festive season at the Christmas Markets of Europe

For many of us, the run up to Christmas is every bit – if not more – exciting than the day itself. And what makes this time so thrilling? Well, the festive preparations of course!

From trying out new culinary delights, to buying decorations and gifts, there’s so much joy to be had in the festive season. So, imagine a Christmas where the preparations are even more enjoyable. Where you leave behind high street department stores and take yourself off to some of the most stylish European cities imaginable in search of the stunning Christmas Markets!

Christmas in these wonderful European cities is a huge cause for celebration and the Christmas Markets are simply amazing! Don’t for a minute think you’ve already experienced the markets if you’ve visited one of the touring versions in the UK. Great though they are, these are a very pale representation of the authentic European experience.

Shopping Heaven at Christmas Markets!

Explore the stalls with their festive treats

Nothing can prepare you for the Christmas Markets’ assault on the senses. The bustle of the crowds, the aroma of the food stalls and the sounds of the bands all go together to make the Christmas Markets experience one you will remember forever. Each market has its own personality and style, focusing on the crafts and culinary specialities of the local area. You’ll never tire of meeting the lovely stallholders, sampling the tasty treats and, of course, enjoying the odd glass of mulled wine as you go.

Christmas Markets are Christmas shopping heaven – even for those whose enthusiasm for retail is traditionally somewhat lacking! There’s a certain excitement about shopping here. A certain delight in finding gifts you know won’t be replicated. A certain sense of satisfaction when you set your eyes on a trinket or charm that you know your friends and family will love. Shopping here is certainly not a chore, it is addictive! Once you start you won’t want to stop and, with our multi centre Christmas Markets holidays, there’s no need to.

Fascinating Heritage

But of course, it’s as well to remember that besides being in shopping heaven, your Christmas Markets holiday means you are also visiting some of the most beautiful and historic towns and cities in Europe. Take time to explore their architecture, discover their historical treasures and lose yourself in their fascinating culture. These are places with fascinating heritages, amazing churches and palaces and great bars and restaurants. Make sure you squeeze every last drop of enjoyment out of each and every place you visit. Our Christmas Markets holidays are sure to make your festive season really special.
