Experience the charm and traditions of some of the most picturesque Christmas Markets in Europe while we treat ourselves and those on our holiday list in Old World style. Enjoy cosmopolitan Budapest, “unexpected elegance, fascinating and rewarding,” says Rick Steves and explore Vörösmarty Square which is transformed into the oldest and most spectacular of all the Christmas markets in Budapest. Browse over 100 stands offering unique Christmas-themed arts and crafts, enjoy the aroma of traditional Hungarian foods and keep yourself warm with a cup of mulled wine. In Vienna—“Europe's classiest capital,” claims Rick Steves—we'll have more than ten markets to choose from! Stunning Prague is truly a fairytale city with its spires and medieval castles and its preserved city center. Sprawling across the city's largest plazas, the Christmas markets light up the city with a warm and festive ambiance—the brightly decorated stalls offer hand-made crafts, Bohemian crystal, wooden toys, scented candles, hand-made jewelry, traditional puppets and Christmas ornaments.
