Christmas is a magical time, so why not make it even more enjoyable with a trip to a Christmas market? We have Holiday Inn Hotels in cities hosting traditional markets across Europe and each one is perfectly located for you to stock up on Christmas goodies. Plus, our special offer makes the season even merrier: when you book early, you'll save at least 20%!
European cities like Brussels, Berlin and Hamburg have been host 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 will be transported to a winter wonderland.
Zurich in Switzerland is also 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”.
London’s South Bank and Hyde Park also play host to traditional Christmas markets. In the north of England, York is a must for Christmas shoppers, offering everything from unique gifts to the very best of local produce -- all in a magical Christmas atmosphere.
After a festive exploration of the markets and finding the best presents for everyone on your shopping list, you can be guaranteed a warm welcome at your chosen Holiday Inn Hotel as well a good night’s sleep, so you can wake refreshed for your next winter expedition. You might even want to bring the family with you next time, as kids can stay and eat for free.
