European Christmas markets are straight out of a holiday movie. Twinkling lights, towering trees, and brightly colored ornaments dot little lanes where artisans sell their goods from peaked-roof stalls. With Christmas markets scattered all around Europe, no matter where you’re traveling this holiday season, there’s bound to be a nearby cobblestone street that’s lined with vendors selling everything from mulled wine to handmade keepsakes. 

These seasonal wonderlands are the best Christmas markets in Europe to explore this year. Most are open from mid-November through late December (and in a few cases, into early January). These outdoor markets are Christmas spirit central, so bundle up, grab a warm drink, and get ready to embrace the festive season.
