Christmas Home Tour
It is safe to say that you are considering a Christmas cruise, Christmas getaway or shopping trip this year? Searching for a fun way to get into the Christmas Spirit? German Christmas Markets are a slam-dunk. There’s no better spot to experience this great season than Germany. Furthermore, there’s no better way to do it than with a Christmas visit that spotlights traditional Christmas markets.
Germany in every practical sense concocted Christmas. The Germans gave us the Christmas tree, the handcrafted wooden smoker, Christmas chimes, Christmas music and traditional blown glass Christmas ornaments.
However, the Christmas advertising was one of the Germans’ best inventions. Despite this, even following hundreds of years, Christmas markets are still scarcely known outside Europe. These brilliant markets speck the nation from north to south from late November through the end of December. But with such an immense number to choose from, how would you pick the best?
Here are some key tips for finding the best German Christmas markets and best Christmas tours:
Go for Old and Traditional
Ensure your itinerary includes, in any event, a couple of markets (also called Christkindlmarkt) that have a long neighborhood tradition. The Christmas showcase in Dresden and the market in Nurnberg are two of the oldest, returning to the fourteenth century. These are among the best European Christmas markets, and any Christmas visit should incorporate in any event one of them. Others incorporate Regensburg and Leipzig.
