Travelling To Christmas Fairs In 2018?

By Emerald Life

What better way to enjoy Christmas Travel than Christmas fairs and Christmas Markets? Shop for unusual Christmas gifts and enjoy local cultures abroad at the same time while indulging in traditional Christmas treats like mulled wine and mince pies.

The Christmas getaway is an ideal time to buy insurance for Christmas travel. You’ll probably be travelling with more money than usual for presents and other family treats.

Top Christmas Fairs 2018

Some of the world’s best Christmas fairs can be found in Paris, Glasgow, Vienna, Seville, Guernsey, Copenhagen, Tallinn and Berlin. With so many Christmas markets in Europe it is no surprise that Christmas shopping abroad is a popular choice.

There’s a high chance of a white Christmas in Salzburg located in the northern Alps. Festive markets in the Austrian city have been taking place since the 15th century, and the largest is held on Cathedral Square where choirs regularly perform outside the Cathedral. 

The Salzburg Christmas Market in Cathedral Square will run from November 22 - December 26, 2018.

The Strasbourg Christmas Market in France will run from November 23 - December 30, 2018 and is spread throughout the city.

In Munich the Wittlesbacherplatz recalls Europe’s original markets with traders in costume and traditional mead or Feuerzangebowle served in goblets. The Munich Christmas Market in Marienplatz will run from November 27 - December 24, 2018.
