Every year, European Christmas markets attract more and more people to savour their unique festive charm. Originating in Germany they are now a feature in many European countries.
It's a wonderful experience for all ages, a chance to indulge in the good old-fashioned Christmas spirit! Characterised by their distinctive settings and regional traditions, each market provides a special atmosphere. The twinkling scenes of festively decorated squares with their enchanting market stalls and glittering Christmas trees set against the backdrop of beautiful historic buildings, let visitors relive the magic of yesteryear. The aromas of roasted chestnuts, grilled sausages, mulled wine and delicious biscuits, fill the crisp air and help to create that very special yuletide ambience.
Our Christmas market breaks are situated in beautiful destinations steeped in heritage and culture. If you are looking for a romantic holiday away from the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season or just a relaxing family trip, our Yuletide offerings are perfect for you.
Fred.\Holidays can create your perfect festive break with a visit to some of the best German Christmas markets, as well as those in France, Sweden, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Austria, Denmark and Hungary to help you to end 2016 on a high.
Fred.\Holidays can tailor-make almost any itinerary to suit your needs and to ensure that you have the perfect holiday. Whether you prefer to fly, journey by train or travel by other means we have options available for you. Alternatively, if you want to book your own flights, we can organise airport parking, transfers and hotel only packages for you.
Why not do something different for Christmas this year and let us book you a Christmas cruise? Pass the festive season in style and go for a traditional winter destination such as Northern Europe, or avoid the chill and sail away to the Caribbean for some fun in the sun.
