Europe is home to some of the most beautiful cities in the world, so it makes sense to take that history, architecture, atmosphere, and tradition and fuse it with the most festive time of the year. Explore Europe's best Christmas markets with us.

From the gardens, Big Wheel, and flashing lights of Edinburgh’s Christmas markets to the lakeside stalls in Switzerland’s tiny town of Montreux, Europe is a wonderful place to take a much-needed holiday and to take your Christmas up a notch. Of course, there’s nothing quite like Christmas at home, but paying a visit to an old town square in Bohemia, or the edgy, colourful streets of Berlin, could be just what you need to elevate the season.

Europe’s Christmas markets are steeped in years of tradition, but there’s nothing quite like the atmosphere. Simply shut your eyes, imagine the chill on your nose, and then picture having a steaming, tasty cup of hot, spiced wine warming your hands. The real deal will have you enjoying these festive delights with locals and other revellers from around the world.

If it’s scenery you’re looking for, we would recommend spending Christmas by Lake Geneva, sampling the cinnamon crepes at the markets. But if it’s something closer to home that might work for you, you can’t go past Edinburgh. Wherever you go in Europe, this Christmas is sure to be an absolute treat!
