A new guide to the best of the European Christmas markets has been launched to help fans of the festive season decide which market to visit this year.

The 16-page guide, compiled by Leger Holidays along with the independent website Christmasmarkets.com, includes top tips for first time visitors and looks at the way different countries approach Christmas markets. It also includes a handy list of the top ten markets, advice on the best places to visit for different interests, and particular food and gift specialities to look out for.

Huw Williams, marketing director at Leger, said: “A visit to the Christmas markets can be truly magical – the smell, the atmosphere, the beautiful decorations and the delicious food and drink all combine to make something very special. Many major towns and cities offer them now, but each do it slightly differently.

“For a first time visitor it can be hard to know where to start – and for those who have been before, to decide where next! So with our inside knowledge, along with that of Christmasmarkets.com who live and breathe this all year round, we’ve pulled together what we hope will be a really useful and interesting guide. A tour with us takes the hassle out of a visit to the markets. We organise transport, accommodation and transfers so you don’t need to worry about any of it. We also organise for you to see other local highlights whilst you’re in the area, so you feel like you’ve really got a good flavour for the area.”
