When it comes to really soaking up that festive spirit, you just can’t go wrong with the classic German Christmas markets!
German Christmas Markets
The smell of Glühwein in the air, giant gingerbread hearts and beautiful lights – there’s no denying at the Christmas markets across Germany are some of the best ones around. If you’ve been feeling the need for a little festive adventure before Christmas Day but were worried that you’d left it too late to book anything, then don’t worry! I think this Livingsocial offer will do you just nicely. :)
With this nifty offer you’ll have the opportunity to enjoy a 2 night city break in a destination of your choice, with return flights from Dublin and accommodation included as well. There are 6 fantastic cities to choose from across the country, each with their own fantastic atmosphere.
Hamburg and Berlin are certainly two of the trendiest, laid-back cities in Germany with fantastic nightlife with plenty of markets to browse through. Towards the west there’s the vibrant student city of Düsseldorf, famous for its lively Old Town and swanky architecture, or you can head a little further down the River Rhine to romantic Cologne, home to one of the largest and most beautiful cathedrals I’ve ever seen (the perfect place to have a market!). Frankfurt is known for being the modern financial heart of Germany, but in its beautifully preserved Old Town you’ll find busting, exciting markets with plenty to offer. And finally there’s Munich, a grand Bavarian city that promises that traditional German experience, yet still boasts an incredibly stylish edge.
As you can see you’re absolutely spoilt for choice. Personally I’ve been to all 6 cities and each one of them is fantastic in their own right, so it’s not going to be an easy choice to make! ;) If you’d like to book a little German adventure, then simply click the link below to be taken to the provider’s website.
