Trains to German Christmas Markets

There really is no better way to get into the Christmas spirit then by visiting a traditional Christmas market.  Christmas markets traditionally originate from Germany and Austria, so Germany's Christmas markets are some of the best in the world.  Traditionally held in nearly all the major towns and cities during advent, the four weeks running up to Christmas.  The heart warming fairs accomodate a whole range of entertainment to bring Christmas to life for adults and children alike, including ice rinks, ferris wheels, carousels, santas grottos, christmas trees gallore with endless craft and food stalls.  Join in with the locals and enjoy Christstollen (stollen) washed down with plenty of Glühwein (mulled wine) with an extra shot of brandy.  Below are Raileasy's top three German Christmas Markets:

FRANKFURT CHRISTMAS MARKET
Starting in November Frankfurt Christmas Fair is one of the most popular and biggest Christmas fairs in Germany.  Frankfurt Christmas fair brings you everything you would expect from a Christmas fair: carols, mulled wine, traditional Christmas grub, rides and attractions, stalls, St Nicholas and a huge Christmas all in the idyllic settings of the old town.
 

STUTTGART CHRISTMAS MARKET
During the end of November the Christmas season is kicked off with a gala concert, and the market place, Schillerplatz is filled with over 200 heart-warming stalls decorated in twinkling, traditional German decorations.  The Stuttgart Christmas fair is one of the oldest and most popular Christmas fairs in the whole of Germany.

TRIER CHRISTMAS MARKET
Trier Christmas market is one of the most popular in Germany, if not just for the idyllic, ancient Roman setting it provides but also for the range of entertainment, food, drinks, gifts, and crafts on offer.
