Christmas Markets

 

 

Christmas markets have been a winter tradition around Europe for centuries, and can be traced as far back as the Middle Ages in German speaking parts of Europe. The markets started as seasonal stalls which would offer food, drink and products –and they have remained true to these traditions into the 21stCentury.

 

Nowadays Christmas Markets are readily available all over Europe, and are the perfect way to get into the true spirit of the season. Areas are turned into winter wonderlands with twinkly lights, Christmas trees, and brightly coloured stalls offering everything from hot food and beverages to handmade gifts and decorations. Some markets will even offer fun fairs, Santa’s grottos and ice skating to keep the whole family entertained.
