12 Best European Christmas Markets
Each year across Europe, Christmas markets pop up and fill town centers with cheer and joy. While not every city has a Christmas market as impressive as the 12 cities below, most have at least a small christmas market of some sort. The one thing that I love about European Christmas markets is the authenticity and quality of the goods, crafts, food and people. The foods offered are amazing, hearty and home made, the crafts are unique, hand made and sturdy and the people are genuine and merry.
We are excited to be visiting Europe this winter and while we will be arriving after Christmas, we hope there are still some remnants of these Christmas markets to enjoy during our travels!

Cheers and Happy Holidays!
