Best Christmas Markets in Europe  

The holiday season is in full swing, the days are getting colder, and everyone is stressed out about holiday shopping, getting that perfect tree, travel plans and family get togethers. Ah, the joys of the holiday season! What’s Christmas without a little chaos and drama? It is also the perfect time to explore the most beautiful Christmas markets in Europe. I have been wanting to visit Europe during Christmas time to see some of these markets but have not had the luck so far.  

Europe is home to some of the most enchanting and festive Christmas markets in the world. These markets, which typically open in late November and run through December, offer a magical experience filled with twinkling lights, traditional crafts, delicious food, and joyous holiday cheer. Here are some of the best Christmas markets in Europe: 

Strasbourg, France: Strasbourg's Christkindelsmärik, which dates to 1570, is the oldest Christmas market in France. With over 300 stalls spread across the city's historic center, this market is a must-visit for anyone seeking a truly authentic Christmas experience. 

Nuremberg, Germany: Nuremberg's Christkindlesmarkt, which dates to the 16th century, is one of the most famous Christmas markets in the world. With over 180 stalls selling traditional crafts, such as wooden toys and ornaments, and delicious food, such as lebkuchen (gingerbread) and Nuremberg Rostbratwürste (grilled sausages), this market is a feast for the senses. 

Vienna, Austria: Vienna's Weihnachtsmarkt, which takes place in front of the iconic Rathaus (City Hall), is one of the most popular Christmas markets in Europe. With over 150 stalls selling traditional Austrian crafts, such as glass ornaments and hand-painted ceramics, and delicious food, such as Wiener Schnitzel and Glühwein (mulled wine), this market is a true winter wonderland. 

Prague, Czech Republic: The Prague Christmas Market is in the Old Town Square, and it is a truly magical sight. The market is surrounded by the city's historic buildings, and it features traditional Czech food, such as trdelník (chimney cake) and svařák (mulled wine). 

Budapest, Hungary: Budapest's Christmas markets are quickly becoming some of the most popular in Europe. The city's market at Vörösmarty Square is a must-visit, with its beautiful lights and traditional Hungarian crafts. 


Berlin, Germany: Gendarmenmarkt, an elegant market is in the heart of Berlin and features over 100 stalls selling a variety of Christmas gifts and treats. 


These are just a few of the many great Christmas markets in Europe. With so many options to choose from, you are sure to find the perfect market to experience the magic of the season.
