  • Christmas markets in central Europe

    2010-10-12

    Those planning a trip to Europe in late November or early December might want to pay a visit to a local Christmas bazaar. These events occur in small towns and big cities, and a traveler is sure to find at least one nearby.

    In Germany, Christmas markets are particularly widespread, with Berlin boasting dozens of unique markets every year. A traveler will find hand-crafted wooden toys and figurines, pastries and locally-prepared food.

    Austria's most well-known markets are in Vienna and Innsbruck. They are known for local crafts, Tannenbaum ornaments, and kiosks full of local food and snacks, such as potato pancakes.

    Prague is another great destination this time of year, offering a wide array of holiday entertainment, including choirs and music performances and stands selling Czech handicrafts.

    All of the Christmas bazaars in central European villages and cities offer the opportunity to buy a one-of-a-kind holiday gift for a loved one. These bazaars are also a great occasion to try Glühwein, a drink made from hot, spiced red wine, that is popular in central Europe and German-speaking countries around the holiday season.
