Christmas Markets Throughout Europe

By Viator, November 2016

4.5 102 Reviews | Add your review

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

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