Europe is home to some of the best Christmas Markets, the kind of markets that we Americans have never seen here in the States. With snow capped mountains in the background and mulled spice wine, it will be a magical experience. Relish in the smells of chestnuts roasting on an open fire and merchants selling their finest handmade gifts, for a truly unforgettable trip.
The oldest Christmas Market in Europe, Strasbourg held their first “Christkindelsmärik” (market of the Infant Jesus) in 1570. With its 300 stalls spread out over the city centre, you’ll find craft objects, produce and Alsatian Christmas decorations. All within a warm and friendly atmosphere.
