European cities like Brussels, Berlin and Hamburg have been home to fabulous Christmas markets for more than 500 years – from the delicious aroma of home-baked gingerbread and mulled wine to vibrantly decorated stalls – you’ll be transported to a winter wonderland. Salzburg in Austria also has Christmas markets that attract thousands of visitors every year – activities include a skating rink, a big wheel and round-about.
Zurich in Switzerland is a top destination for a spot of Christmas shopping – set in the middle of the Old Town, the market offers a romantic ambience and the opportunity to fill your shopping bags to bursting with sure-to-please Christmas gifts. The 160 quaintly-decorated market stalls transform the immense hall at Zürich’s Main Railway Station into the “Zürich Christ Child Market”.
Paris hosts a range of Christmas markets to suit everyone’s fancy. Whether it's the traditional market in La Défense with over 350 stalls, or the contemporary market that stretches down the Champs-Elysées to the Place de la Concorde. There's also an ice rink that overlooks the Eiffel Tower at the Trocadero. Settle in with us, as you’ll need more than a few days to explore everything that Paris has to offer at Christmas time.
The Winter Wonderland in London’s Hyde Park is a sight to be seen. With its expansive Bavarian market, Ferris wheel, rides, ice rink and live performances, there are few Christmas markets that are as impressive as this one. London’s South Bank also plays host to a traditional Christmas market that winds its way down the River Thames.
