We missed out on going to Christmas markets in 2020 because of COVID so this year there is a lot of built up excitement for the Christmas season.
Christmas markets in Europe are top of many people’s travel list in December every year, and we know why.. the cold winter air, smell of grilled sausages, twinkling lights, traditional Christmas crafts and a mug of hot mulled wine! What’s not to like?!
As with any Christmas market, having food, drink, craft stalls and entertainment all together creates a magical festive setting. It’s an ideal day out for all the family and that’s why we are thrilled we can enjoy exactly this without having to get on a flight.
The craft stalls at Christmas markets are the highlight for many visitors. The excitement to buy something different that you won’t get in the shops, the chats with the maker, and just discovering quirky little handmade gifts for Christmas. And isn’t it nice to pick up a little Christmas souvenir for yourself too!
