One of Europe's most notable holiday traditions is the Christmas Market. Dating back to the 12th and 13th centuries in German-speaking Europe, Christmas markets - also known as Christkindlmarkt or Weihnachtsmarkt - attract millions of visitors a year for their four-week run during Advent.

Hundreds of stalls overflowing with festive knick knacks, ornaments, nutcrackers, nativity scenes, wreathes, and mini Kris Kringles dot the squares of Dresden, Bautzen, Vienna, Salzburg, Munich, Berlin, and more. Grab a traditional mug of Gluhwein (traditional mulled wine), munch on some Christmas cookies, gingerbread, and toasted almonds, and join in the merriment of the season.

The Christmas market fun has spread across Europe, now popping up in England, Spain, Italy, and beyond. Don't miss this unique experience!
