Groupon’s Guide to Christmas Markets

With the tradition dating back to the 14th century, Munich’s Christmas Market is held on the Marienplatz, the central square in the city, and boasts a multitude of gift ideas such as wood carvings, figurines and thematic candles, as well as live performances and drama groups. Sightseers may stroll along with the enticing stalls in Budapest at Vörösmarty Square, where specific desserts including pastries, strudels and roasted meats may be savoured, while live entertainment is complemented by the specific lightings that adorn the whole area. In Nuremberg, the seasonal holiday is hosted in multiple locations, one of the most famous being Hauptmarkt square boasting stalls filled with sweets, handcrafted figurines and local sausages, while the little ones are kept entertained in the Nuremberg Kinderweihnacht, known as the Children’s Christmas Market, where amusement opportunities come in abundance with a carousel and a Ferris wheel. In Paris, tourists have an array of places to choose from when picking their Christmas Market destination, ranging from the famous Champs-Élysées to the local La Défense market alluring with an outdoor ice-skating rink.

In Prague, the wintery traditions are compressed at the Old Town Square and at Wenceslas Square, where a multitude of Christmas tree decorations, traditional souvenirs, local beverages and sweets may be enjoyed in a cheery atmosphere with carols and bright lights. In Lille, guests are welcomed to the celebration by a Ferris wheel standing next to a high Christmas tree, while a cluster of gifts and souvenirs are up for grabs at the local stalls. In Berlin, travellers may choose from up to 60 different Christmas markets, the most famous being Charlottenburg Castle Christmas Market. Living up to the German holiday tradition, Cologne attracts almost two million travellers every winter. By far the most imposing market of the city is the Cologne Cathedral Market, where the biggest fir tree in the whole Rhineland unites its lights with the falling snowflakes, filling the air with millions of star particles. Bruges, famous for its Belgian chocolate, boasts not only medieval attractions adorned with colourful lights, but also a large market where sweet delights, hearty meals and hot drinks may be enjoyed.
