Whether or not you choose to have a traditional Christmas, its worth visiting Central Europe at this time of year. Enjoy the year round charm of the big cities illuminated by Christmas lights, with luxurious shop window decorations displaying the most original gifts, and see traditional Christmas markets like the more than 50 markets in Berlin, the Historical Christmas Market in Hamburg, the markets in old quarter of Basel or the markets in Copenhagen’s Tivoli Gardens.
The Marché de Noël, Christmas markets, in France or Brussels make for a perfect excuse to take a short break and indulge yourself in an idyllic setting. Don’t miss the Christmas market in the medieval city Bruges, nor the Brussels market or the popular Winter Wonderland where there is even a skating rink. And in France, the Strasbourg markets that have been running since the sixteenth century are considered as the most important in the country, together with the market in Toulouse, among others.
One of the most deep-rooted traditions in many European cities are the Christmas markets. By visiting them you’ll get to know the essence of Christmas tradition from its beginnings. Don’t miss out on seeing the Christmas markets scattered about the most picturesque streets of Prague, or Krakow‘s famous market located in Europe’s largest medieval square, or the traditional medieval market at the Town Hall Square in Tallinn.
