The Christmas Market in Prague is one of the most popular in the world, with over 4 million visitors each year.

There are around 50 locations throughout Germany’s capital city that host a variety of stalls selling traditional German foods, such as pretzels and sausages; handcrafted products such as woodcarvings or glass jewellery; alcoholic drinks like beer steins (large mugs) made from recycled glass bottles; organically grown fruits & vegetables grown on site at farmer’s markets across Berlin’s inner city neighbourhoods including Kreuzberg/Friedrichshain where you’ll find one of my favourite places to eat lunch – Liebermannstraße 1-3!
Strasbourg Christmas MarketsStrasbourg is a beautiful city, and the capital of Alsace. It’s also known as “the city of light” due to its many streetlights. Strasbourg’s Christmas markets are open from November to January, so you can enjoy them during all four seasons! Strasbourg is known for its Christmas markets, which are held at various locations throughout the city every year. They’re open from late October through mid-January (if you want to avoid crowds), but some vendors stay open until early February because there’s still plenty of business left in their booths after Christmas shoppers have gone home for break time or if they just need some more time before winter sets in fully again next year!
Barcelona Christmas MarketsBarcelona is a city of Catalan culture and tradition, with a rich history that goes back to the Roman settlement of Barcelona. With such a beautiful setting on the Mediterranean Sea and mountains towering above it, it’s no wonder that this city has become one of Europe’s most popular tourist destinations. Barcelona has many beautiful churches like Sagrada Familia (the biggest church in Europe), La Seu Basilica Cathedral (built between 1202 -1569), Sant Pau Church which dates back to 1323 A.D., etc., so if you’re looking for some great architecture you will certainly find it here!

Istanbul Christmas MarketsIt’s a city of contrasts, so Istanbul is a great place to visit this winter. While there are plenty of things to do in winter, the best way to experience the city is by visiting its Christmas markets. These markets are an opportunity for tourists and locals alike to buy unique gifts and enjoy live music, art exhibitions, delicious food stalls and more.
Budapest Christmas MarketThe Budapest Christmas Market is one of the most popular Christmas markets in Europe. It’s located in Váci utca, a pedestrian street that also houses many shops and restaurants. The market opens on November 24 and runs until December 23rd. The last day you can visit this market is December 26th, but you should plan to go at least one day before that so that you can enjoy all its attractions! The main attraction at this particular event is its food stalls selling traditional Hungarian dishes like pörkölt (sweet paprika stew), goulash soup or goulash cutlets with sauerkraut, potatoes and bacon wrapped up in cabbage leaves or stuffed cabbage leaves stuffed with meatballs or potatoes layered with sauerkraut then topped off with fried onions then covered by more layers of meatballs etcetera until they reach their final form which is usually served on top of noodles made from flour mixed with water into dough then shaped into long strands which are then cut into squares before being fried until golden brown…
Winter is a great time to visit some of Europe’s best loved cities.Almost all of Europe’s best known cities have something to offer in winter. The most popular destinations are Amsterdam, Prague, Berlin and Vienna. The following list includes other winter destinations that you might want to consider visiting as well:
- Barcelona Christmas Markets: A festive scene with lots of lights, decorations and activities like skating on the rink! It’s a great place to meet up with family friends after work or school if you have kids who love Christmas time too!
- Strasbourg Christmas Markets: This is one of those places where everyone goes together because it has become so popular over the years that there are queues outside just waiting for their turn at getting into this area where you can find delicious food stalls serving hot chocolate or mulled wine (which is basically hot alcohol). It’s also worth noting that this market runs from mid November until December 24th so if you want a holiday gift idea then go ahead visit their website before deciding whether or not they’ll be open during your trip abroad; otherwise make sure not leave without buying something unique made out of local produce such as sausages made from pork belly instead of using leaner cuts like chicken breast when making burgers etcetera…
