Can’t you taste the Christmas atmosphere?
Well, yes, with Halloween now behind us, our thoughts are already turning to Christmas!
At the end of November, most European cities get ready for the Christmas markets, a timeless tradition that was so much missed during the lock-down.
One of the most popular destinations for “Christmas Markets” is Germany, with its countless markets in Berlin, including, for example, the one at Charlottenburg Castle, all decorated to create a dreamy atmosphere, although perhaps the most famous and opulent remains Gendarmenmarkt…
Of course, the giant Christmas tree in Romëmberg, Frankfurt’s historic market square, is not to be missed.
Then we continue with the fabulous Christmas markets in Austria, the home of the song ‘Still Nacht’. Like the stalls set up in Salzburg that look very much like those of the 15th century, in this land that was the birthplace of the great Mozart. Then there is the ‘Magic Advent’ in Vienna’s Town Hall Square and what about the open book of fairy tales set up in the streets of Innsbruck? With the facades of the houses all decorated in the same theme …
France is no less impressive with Strasbourg and its ancient Christkindesmäkir and, not least, the magical illuminations of the Metz Christmas market.
Switzerland’s largest Christmas market is in Basel, while Zurich has the largest indoor market in Europe.
And if you’re looking for something a little out of the ordinary, there’s the Dutch underground market in the Valkenburg caves. The caves are located near Gouda, where you can enjoy the unique ‘Candlelight Night’.
And then there are the markets in Prague, Tallinn, Nuremberg, Barcelona… all the most beautiful cities are dressed up!
