Every European destination is dressed with its finest decorations, Christmas balls and Christmas lights illuminate the romantic Christmas markets of Europe. During your Christmas Holidays in Europe you will discover the best Christmas markets. You will have memories for a lifetime and you will bring back home the best traditional Christmas presents.


Here are some places I think are dreamy for the perfect Holidays Getaway. 
 
Manchester, England

 
The, original, biggest and - arguably - the best Christmas market in the country, Manchester Christmas Markets is the ideal destination for a festive outing.Some 300 beautifully crafted stalls offer mouth-watering international food, drinks and finely crafted Yuletide gifts in the heart of the buzzing city centre.This year the market will also introduce a designated family site for the first time with fun rides and entertainment throughout the season, including: LED light performers, magicians and street theatre - with spectacular views of the Manchester Cathedral and National Football Museum.
 
London, England



London’s spectacular Christmas destination - Hyde Park Winter Wonderland returns on 20th November for six exciting weeks of winter festivities with FREE admission and even more entertainment than before. With more than 100 rides and attractions on site, there's something for everyone.
For those Christmas shoppers, there’s the traditional German Christmas market with over 200 chalets. The Angels Christmas Market offers unusual and handmade gifts and crafts, including ceramics, candles, jewellery, wooden toys, nativity scenes and Christmas decorations .
 
 Paris, France
 

Christmas is coming, with its festive events, illuminations and gifts galore! It is time to enjoy the festive season and rediscover the special magic of Paris at this time of year
Streets are trimmed up, department store windows come to life and Paris’s finest monuments are illuminated. Christmas is definitely approaching: and Paris is preparing an array of festivities and special events for its visitors.
 
Berlin, Germany
 

The baroque Charlottenburg Palace is a sumptuous backdrop for this Christmas market in City West.
Wood huts and marquees, decorated entirely with natural materials, provide a festive atmosphere and offer not only a wide range of crafts but also an impressive selection of culinary choices. In addition to the traditional Christmas market stalls selling hot chestnuts, crepes or Hungarian langos, many hotels and restaurants from Berlin and Brandenburg offer fine dining in heated tents.
The Winterwald (winter forest) in front of the small orangery offers magical attractions for children, including a nostalgic carousel, an air swing and a small railway. In the Märchenzelt (fairy tale tent) organised by the Stiftung Stadtmuseum Berlin, the little ones can try their hand at arts and crafts.
A visit to the Christmas market in front of Charlottenburg Palace is wonderfully combined with a tour of the palace or a leisurely walk through its garden.

 
Brussels, Belgium


Joy and lights sparkled, bathing visitors in the festive atmosphere embodying the event. Winter Wonders’ attractiveness is now legendary, making it a key event in Brussels during the festive season. This unmissable happening greatly contributes to make our capital city into a privileged city-trip destination. The ice-skating rink, a gorgeous Christmas tree, a magical and original light and sound show, video mappings, a festive Christmas Parade, the traditional Ferris wheel, the merry-go-rounds… All these amazing activities enchant big and small alike and make the course unique.
Through its 2-kilometers course deploying through our historic town centre, Winter Wonders in Brussels will once again be the topic of many a dream for children and adults alike. The festive atmosphere, unique ambiance, quality activities, delicious dishes, fairy-tale lighting and the discovery of other universes and cultures on offer during the event will nourish many a reverie…
Hope you liked this magical festive places, I wished I could go, but who knows one day!
