The UNESCO World Heritage–listed city of Prague transforms into a magical wonderland during the Christmas period, with traditional markets, bright illuminations, and a wonderfully festive feel. Here are a few ways to make the most of your visit.

Visit the Prague Christmas Market
Prague plays host to some of the Czech Republic’s biggest and best Christmas markets. Locals and visitors browse the stalls for gifts and souvenirs, the city’s landmarks are illuminated by bright twinkling lights, and the heady scent of hot mulled wine fills the air. Visit the markets on a walking tour to weave in and out of the stalls, learn about centuries of Czech history, and see top sights such as the baroque Cernin Palace, the Charles Bridge, and the 12th-century Strahov Monastery.

Attend a Traditional Czech Folklore Show
From music and dance to food and festivity, folklore and tradition run deep in the Czech Republic. Visitors looking to experience the country’s culture can take part in a traditional Czech folklore show, and see a side of the Prague missed by many visitors. Sit down to a traditional Czech Christmas meal of turkey breast with chestnut stuffing and apple strudel, then relax and enjoy a performance of traditional music, song, and dance.

Head to Other European Christmas Markets
Using Prague as a base, visitors to the Czech Republic can easily explore further afield by traveling into Austria or the Bavaria and Saxony regions of Germany on a full-day tour with roundtrip transportation. Stroll through the Christmas markets in Salzburg’s beautiful Cathedral Square, discover top Germany attractions such as medieval Nuremberg Castle and Dresden Castle—a masterpiece of baroque architecture—or soak up the festive atmosphere in the German town of Meissen, nestled on the banks of the Elbe River.
