This Christmas period why not do something a little different and head to one of Europe’s best Christmas markets? Cologne, Budapest, Chambery Geneva, Salzburg or Prague - all easy to get to with Jet2.com.
Cologne, near Jet2.com destination Düsseldorf, has the most beautiful markets set up under the grand and imposing gothic cathedral which sell everything from Christmas decorations and presents to food and drink to sample, such as warm gingerbread and bratwurst.
The markets in Budapest are bustling with visitors looking for locally crafted goods and fine wines but perhaps the biggest attraction is the giant advent calendar in Vorosmarty Square where a window of a huge building is opened everyday in December!
Festive smells, stalls and sights fill the French town centre of Chambery this December with Chambery’s very own Christmas market. With the snow capped mountains in the background this really is a place to get you into the Christmas spirit.
Each year Geneva plays host to an International Christmas market creating a magical winter wonderland at The Place de la Fusterie. The chalets form a Christmas 'village', offering unique gifts for visitors hand crafted from afar and locally. Geneva also puts on a Christmas circus between 22 November 08 and 4 January 09.
Soak up the Austrian Christmas atmosphere at Salzburg’s Christmas market! Hand made Christmas crafts, festive food, beverages and entertainment are on offer set inside a cathedral and the surrounding town squares.
During Christmas, Wenceslas Square in Prague becomes a yuletide paradise filled with stalls selling everything you could imagine, so soak up the festive atmosphere and find some great gifts to take home for your family and friends.
