“The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear.”
There is no Christmas without Christmas markets, Christmas wines, and all the magic that the Christmas season brings with it. Christmas is that time of the year when most of us forget about diets and counting calories. Christmas is time for lights, sweets, decorations and time to be spent outside homes while using most of our time running to find that perfect gift for that perfect person.
Discover the magic of Christmas in these 3 cities that live Christmas with the most intensity.
- Vienna, Austria: Vienna is the quintessential European capital of Christmas markets. As the festivities approach, almost all the squares in Vienna are filled with wooden booths that sell everything from local handicrafts to the most varied Christmas decorations. The number of lights, money and effort that the Viennese invest in their Christmas markets is incredible and the result is spectacular. Vienna hosts the best Christmas markets in Europe and probably in the world.
- Prague, Czech Republic: The Prague Christmas market is the largest in the Czech Republic and possibly the most beautiful too. As little as you have seen of its spectacular historic centre, it is easy to understand the reason for its attractions. The city dresses up in gala, light and colour on those days and if you walk through the Old Town Square, Wenceslas Square and the Republic Square, the traditions, the bright atmosphere and the aromas will seduce you. If you are there on November 29 do not miss the lighting of the Christmas Tree.
- Nuremberg, Germany: The say that Germany is the birthplace of the Christmas markets, but the picturesque city Nuremberg takes the prize. Its market has been organized for more than 4 centuries and is deeply rooted. If you want to experience Christmas intensely, you should visit Nuremberg and walk through its beautiful pedestrian streets with a medieval atmosphere.
Christmas markets have become gastronomy markets too.
These Christmas markets became a vibrant place that was born inspired by the typical markets of cities and evolves into a space that brings together and invites new chefs to present their gastronomic proposal. Nowadays, Christmas is not complete without visiting at least one Christmas market.
