Immerse yourself in the Christmas markets across Europe

One of the best ways to truly get into the Christmas spirit is to visit Europe's Christmas markets! Tourists and locals are brought together to celebrate the festive season, and if the winter chill gets too much, a sip of Glühwein will help you fight off the cold as you browse the handicrafts on offer.

Our Christmas market breaks take us to some of the biggest and best Christmas markets in Europe and the UK including Cologne's maze of pretty stalls, the spectacular Christmas markets in Lille and Bruges and even three Baltic Christmas markets in one textile-themed holiday!
