In the weeks leading up Christmas, holiday markets open across Europe and America as part of an annual tradition.

The markets are the perfect place to warm up with a glass of mulled wine or satisfy your sweet tooth with a Christmas treat. Whether you’re taking in Strasbourg’s sparkling Christmas tree, or sampling gingerbread at the Tallinn Christmas market, you can't help but feel the spirit of the season at our favorite holiday markets around the world.
