Innsbruck Christmas Markets

Innsbruck Christmas Markets

Innsbruck, Austria
November 15 – January 6

This small city has around half-a-dozen small markets, with Altstadt being one of the highlights. Surrounded by medieval houses, the stalls sell Christmas-themed gifts like wooden toys and gingerbread. Try to catch a group of carol singers to really get in the festival mood!


Feria de Santa Llucia

Feria de Santa Llucia Barcelona

Barcelona, Spain
November 28 – December 23

Barcelona’s Feria de Santa Llucia has been an annual tradition since 1786, with over 300 stalls selling local gifts and Christmas decorations. The festival also celebrates Christmas Catalan-style, with an unusual character called the caganer (also known as “The Defacator”), which can be bought from the market along with other traditional Catalan instruments.


Soleils d’Hiver

Winter Suns Festival Angers

Angers, France
November 28 – December 27

The Soleils d’Hiver (Winter Suns) festival in Angers offers gourmet food and drink from all over France. Taking place at the Place du Ralliement, sip on mulled wine, taste dreamy nougat and enjoy a tasty toffee apple to toast in the Winter Solstice. You can also shop for unique Christmas gifts while children ride the carousel.


Hamburg Christmas Markets
Hamburg Christmas Markets

Hamburg, Germany
November 23 – January 6

From late November Hamburg sets up 15 different festive markets in its beautiful historic port. Selling everything from sweet treats to handmade crafts every market specialises in something, for example if you have kids you can take them to Spielzeuggasse, also known as Toy Street for some Christmas inspiration. If you are looking for romance then head to Jungfernstieg or Fleetinsel where fairy lights light the water’s edge.


Bologna Christmas Market

Christmas Market Bologna

Bologna, Italy
November 17 – January 7

One of the oldest Christmas Markets in Italy, Bologna’s festive markets are famous for their fabulous foods, from chocolate-covered citrus peel to seasonal nougat made from nuts and honey. Try the warm and cozy Fiera di Natale for some Christmas treats and that warm festive feeling.



Stockholm Christmas Market

Stockholm Christmas Market

Stockholm, Sweden
November 21 – December 23

Taking place in front of the Nobel Museum, the Christmas Market in Stockholm only sells gifts and products made in Sweden, and offers items at a number of price ranges. Adults can enjoy some homemade mulled wine while kids can nibble on some pepparkakor (ginger cookies).



St. Gallen Christchindli

St Gallen, Switzerland
November 26 – December 24

Set in a postcard-perfect location, St Gallen is surrounded by snow-covered mountains, with a stunning Baroque cathedral, a medieval library, and half-timbered merchant’s houses. Just an hour’s drive from Zurich, the market opens with the lighting of Switzerland’s tallest Christmas tree. Enjoy the typical food and drink at Christchindli market and spend your evening warming up in one of the local pubs nearby.



Worms Christmas Markets

Worms Germany Christmas

Worms, Germany

An hour’s drive from Frankfurt, Worms is said to be the oldest city in Germany.
