Get in the festive spirit on a week-long exploration of Central Europe’s famous Christmas markets. Travel to Austria, Germany and Hungary, contrasting the traditions, cuisines and of course, the warming mulled wine, in Munich, Salzburg, Vienna and Budapest. Meander from stall to stall, discovering new sights, sounds, flavours and fashions.
Munich’s Christmas markets are probably the most famous of all, offering wonderful gifts and authentic Bavarian food, ale and music. You’ll also enjoy a Gluehwein tasting here. Vienna has spectacular seasonal shopping, with tonnes of hand-crafted toys, candles and paintings on offer. Where better to pick up those last-minute presents? Lively Budapest embraces the Christmas spirit wholeheartedly, with streets, trees and markets lit up in lights.
Travel in a small group of maximum 12 people, using trains to scoot between the cities and avoid traffic jams, with short journey times (max three hours) between each. You’ll spend seven nights in hotels, enjoying a mix of guided walks and free time, so you can wrap up, browse the markets and venture beyond into each city to explore at your own pace.
