Christmas markets - European city breaks near Christmas markets

Christmas markets (18318)

Get festive by booking a city break near a spectacular Christmas market. Packed full of unique handmade gifts, light shows, ice rinks, fairgrounds and much more, Christmas markets offer plenty of festive cheer to get you into the Christmas spirit.



Cities across Europe play host to Christmas markets from November. Visit Berlin to see Charlottenburg Castle bathed in romantic lights. Or discover unique handmade gifts in between seeing the sights in Vienna, Brussels or Prague.



In the UK, some of the best Christmas markets are held in London, York and Bath. Go there for traditional German-style stalls selling handmade jewellery, crafts and toys and tasty yuletide delicacies. And there’s plenty to keep the kids entertained with street theatre, fairgrounds and, of course, Santa’s grotto.
