Experience the magic of Germany’s and Austria’s magnificent Christmas Markets!

Head to iconic markets like Nuremberg or Vienna, where the Christmas fair tradition goes back as far as 600 years! Our favorites, however, are the unique, smaller markets in medieval towns tucked away in Bavaria and the Black Forest, offering fairy-tale backdrops and the most authentic experience.  Each promises appetising food stalls, Christmas carols aplenty, a festive jovial atmosphere and heaps of decorations and souvenirs to bring home. Prefer a large-scale party to celebrate Christmas? Head to a mountain resort in the Alps or join the merry crowds at Berlin’s Brandenburg Gate.
