2019 Prague > Amsterdam

A festive tradition

Europe at Christmas transforms into a happy hive of activity as markets spring to life in every town and market square.
From charming villages to great cultural centres, you can look forward to the hum and buzz of Christmas as treats, toys, charms and trinkets of every description come out in a joyful display. In many places, the delicacies and decorations still honour age-old traditions, and you’d be forgiven for wondering whether you’ve somehow stepped back in time with the ‘Ghost of Christmas Past’.
