Group travel to see two of Germany’s most popular Christmas Markets
Visiting a Christmas Market in Europe in the run up to the festive season has become a must-do holiday for many as it’s a chance to experience the traditional atmosphere of years gone by and pick up unusual Christmas gifts.
Germany plays host to some of the oldest and most popular Christmas Markets in Europe and German Travel Centre are currently offering a selection of group packages to Germany’s top cities with prices starting from £199 per person, flying from a number of UK airports and including one or more nights in a centrally located hotel.
Munich and Frankfurt continue to be the two most popular places to visit the markets. Frankfurt’s Christmas Market is one of the most important in Germany and the elaborate and creative stand decorations, the scenic surroundings of the Römerberg and Paulsplatz and the huge Christmas tree make it one of its most beautiful. This year the market operates from 27 November until 22 December and there are more than 200 decorated stalls to wander around.
Munich’s markets date back to the 14-century and the city has several including the main market held on Marienplatz in the centre of the city. Most markets run from 25 November until 24 December and visitors can even shop right up to the point they leave the city as there is a Christmas market at the airport complete with ice stating facilities.
Both cities offer a wealth of other attractions apart from the Christmas Markets. Frankfurt is a dynamic metropolis; with an astoundingly beautiful skyline has a contrasting combination of futuristic modernity and traditional sandstone. Exclusive boutiques, exotic restaurants and a multitude of museums keep visitors busy from dawn till dusk.
Munich is renowned for its architectural magnificence and its Old World charm. With over 700 fountains and parks in all districts giving the city its warm Mediterranean atmosphere, it is known as 'the green city'. Its cosmopolitan flair is flavoured with small-town friendliness, and the creativity of the town and the special appeal of the city's cultural life have an outstanding reputation worldwide.
