    There’s no better way to enjoy the festive season than to visit some of Europe’s best Christmas markets! Our holiday to Bavaria will allow us to do just this, as we discover the markets in nearby locations from our base in Wurzburg. This wonderful city is filled with splendid sights, such as the Fortress Marienberg, the Old Main Bridge and the Wurzburg Residence. We’ll also be able to discover the Christmas markets in Wurzburg city centre while at leisure here, and will visit the markets in Koblenz during our journey to Wurzburg.

    We’ll have two included excursions to make the most of as well, as we make our way to Nuremberg first to admire the pretty Christmas decorations and to soak up the amazing atmosphere here. Nuremberg’s Christkindlesmarkt is famous for being one of Germany’s largest, with everything from delicious gingerbread to handmade trinkets on show in the many stalls.

    Our next excursion will take in the markets in Rothenburg ob der Tauber. These charming markets are always a treat to visit - be sure to sample some of the local delicacies, such as Schneeball, which are tasty pasty ‘snowballs’!
