Last week i received an amazing Christmas hamper from Jet2. It was filled with all sorts of christmasy goodness so it got me thinking about how the Christmas markets have always been one of my favourite things to experience when it comes to this time of year. Living up north i usually spend quite a few days/nights at the Manchester Christmas Markets, i love the food, the atmosphere and the unique gifts you can pick up! The list is endless as to why i love being at the Christmas markets. So i thought it would be fun to share my top 3 Christmas market destination on my bucket list! Here goes:
Prague, Czech Republic – A few of my friends went to Prague this year and saw the Christmas markets, they looked AMAZING! I would just love to visit the town square is beautiful and Christmas decorations, fairy lights & Christmas markets just make beautiful things look even more beautiful! I’ve even heard the Christmas markets in Prague are open on Christmas day!
Krakow, Poland – I’ve always wanted to visit Krakow to go see Auschwitz and the Wieliczka Salt Mines but i would also love to visit their Christmas markets! The city itself always looks beautiful so covered in Christmas lights, Little wooden huts, with performances and if I’m lucky SNOW! – i just really need to go!
Vienna, Austria – Ive seen so many photos of the beautiful christmas markets in Vienna Austria. Sparkly fairy lights and beautifully decorated trees all infront of the city hall really makes it look like a magical winter wonderland. Also did you know these Christmas markets date back to the middle ages in 1298? City hall even opens up and has an area dedicated to children where they can learn to make Christmas cookies or candles!
So what i didn’t know is that with Jet2holidays they sell the full package! So you can book everything all in one go, the flight, the accommodation which even includes a 22kg baggage allowance. No stress, and no mess! Perfect excuse for me to tick one or two or maybe even all three of these off my list next year eh?
Are you a Christmas market fan like me? Which Christmas markets are on your bucket list?
