Tired of commercialism taking over Christmas and looking for a traditional and romantic Christmas this year? Then Germany is the perfect place for you!
Every year more and more visitors fall in love with the wonderful German Christmas markets. Throughout the country these historic and unique markets are held. Christmas gifts are not mass-produced but craftwork of real quality. You can buy all kinds of Christmas gifts, such as crib figurines, toys, wood carvings, marionettes, candles and lambskin shoes to place underneath your Christmas tree. But this is not all… The ambience is further enhanced by the aromas of grilled sausages, hot chestnuts and gingerbread biscuits for the little ones.
Most Christmas Markets start in the last week of November and run through to Christmas Eve or a day or two before. They are usually open every day from 10am to about 8 or 9 pm.
If you would like to experience a truly special Christmas market we would advise you the Nürnberger Christmas market. The name of the Market is ”Christkindlesmarkt”. Translated it means Christmas Child Market. Every two years Nürnberg chooses a new Christmas child.
The last couple of years Christmas markets have become very popular in the Netherlands. They began to organize these events in a few cities and as the years passed by Christmas markets became a tradition. In the Netherlands you will find traditional Christmas markets where you can enjoy delicious food, hot drinks and more.
During the event ”Magical Maastricht” the city undergoes a metamorphosis and becomes a Christmas paradise. You will get inspired when seeing all the beautiful Christmas gifts and decoration. You can also enjoy many delicious food and drinks like mulled wine, traditional Dutch pancakes, donuts, waffles, pea soup and much more. There is something to do for everyone with a large skating rink, a 38m high Ferris wheel, an old fashioned Grande Carousel with 2 floors and various live performances.
Come visit the Netherlands and enjoy the holidays.
