It might seem early to be thinking about Christmas, but we can’t help but think this one is justified for those who like to get organised with their festive plans! If you want to get away before Christmas but haven’t quite decided on a location, how about taking a trip to one of the beautiful European Christmas markets to squeeze in a little bit of festive cheer and see a new city at its most beautiful?
While the UK has some fantastic Christmas markets, such as the Frankfurt-style market in Birmingham or the wonderful South Bank market in London, it can also be really fun to get a group together to make the journey to Europe for a whistlestop weekend of shopping, delicious food and festive entertainment in places such as Cologne and Brussels.
Christmas markets are the perfect place to pick up some really unique gifts for family and friends which you won’t find in mainstream UK stores, and you might even want to bring back some decorations to give your house some traditional European charm in the form of arts, crafts and handmade goods to get everyone into the festive spirit.
You can also sample some of the special wintery local fare, whether it’s a special Belgian craft beer, a warming glass of mulled wine or a rustic bratwurst and sauerkraut meal. Belgian chocolate is another family favourite, and you can sample all the delicious snacks on offer while enjoying the entertainment, whether it’s a choir, a band playing everyone’s festive favourites or a group of dancers treating guests to a glimpse of their traditional moves.
If you’re thinking about it, it’s best to book now to avoid disappointment and secure your place on a coach to one of these exciting markets. Contact Coach Hire UK Europe today to get a quote for your Christmas market coach trip.
