From the end of November, the bells start ringing as Christmas Markets pop up in many European cities, particularly in Central Europe, to celebrate the festive season. Handmade toys, crafts, carols, concerts and delicious Christmas food specialities are all part of the Yuletide experience in this part of Europe.
Cologne, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Munich and Berlin in Germany, Strasbourg in France, Brussels in Belgium, Salzburg and Vienna in Austria, Prague in the Czech Republic, Krakow in Poland and Budapest in Hungary are some of the classic and most atmospheric Christmas Markets in Europe.
