As winter approaches, many people will be wondering – which is the best European city to take a Christmas break in.

 

However, which one is the most relaxing, romantic and magical – as well as best for shopping?

Below are just few of the most highly regarded cities for a Christmas break in Europe.

Berlin

Berlin is arguably the well-recognised German city when it comes to its cultural and historical past. It is awash with art museums and galleries, as well as some incredible architecture. Fans of history will admire the post-war optimism from a country that was once steeped in National Socialism. For shopping, it is king too. It is Germany‘s largest Christmas market city; boasting over 60 individual markets. For foodies, just try and avoid the allure of home-made mulled wine and bratwurst sausages! Not to mention the innumerable pastry stalls.

London

The English capital really shines at Christmas. Hyde Park, the city’s largest green open space, literally turns into a Wonderland; complete with Santa, his elves, and reindeer. It also hosts an ice rink and a giant observation wheel for those who like to be on the move whilst they enjoy the city that is home to the Queen of England. Walking along the lit up Thames waterway is a must by night time, too. Also, when it comes to hotels, London has a fantastic selection for all budgets.

Prague

Prague Christmas markets take place in Wenceslas Square and also in the Old Town Square. Featuring over 150 beautifully traditional wooden stalls, you can expect to feast on gingerbreads, chestnuts and fragrant punches while traditional Christmas concerts play away. Already recognised as one of the most romantic modern destinations away, the Prague Castle, the largest medieval complex in Europe, is a must see. For an overall view of the city, try heading for the 14th century Charles Bridge, which offers extraordinary views of the historic skyline.
