Christmas is the perfect opportunity to spend time with loved ones and seek out unique gifts and with the UK and Europe brimming with traditional seasonal markets you’ll be spoilt for choice.
Brussels, Berlin and Hamburg have been home to fabulous markets for more than 500 years – from the delicious aroma of home-baked gingerbread 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.
Perhaps the most impressive of all is Dresden’s Striezelmarkt. First held in 1434, it now attracts close to 2 million visitors each year.
Zurich in Switzerland is a top destination for Christmas shopping – set in the middle of the Old Town, the market offers 160 quaintly-decorated market stalls.
Madrid is the setting for Spain's largest market, set in the biggest square in the city, the Plaza Mayor. Popular with locals and tourists alike, the market is nearly 150 years old.
Paris hosts a range of Christmas markets to suit everyone. Whether it's the traditional market in La Défense, 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 must be seen. With its expansive Bavarian market, Ferris wheel, ice rink and live performances, there are few Christmas markets that are as impressive. London’s South Bank also plays host to a traditional Christmas market that winds its way down the River Thames.
