About Christmas Markets
Christmas markets trace their origins back to the Late Middle Ages in German-speaking parts of Europe. Though much has changed since then, the core and spirit of the markets have remained largely the same. Celebrated during the four weeks of Advent, leading up to Christmas day, families and communities gather in their cities’ squares for treats, cheers, and warm beverages, while browsing the cozy stalls in search of the perfect gift or Christmas knick-knack and enjoying traditional songs and dances.
