Festive city breaks
Festive lights and a cheery atmosphere can be found throughout the city during Yuletide, however, Wenceslas Square and Old Town Square are at the centre of the action. At Old Town Square, a huge Christmas tree stands, transported from the forests of Liberec.
The sweet smell of toasted almonds, warm punch and festive baking are just some of the reasons why Vienna offers the perfect Christmas getaway. A tall candle-lit archway offers a warm welcome to City Hall Square, where visitors can find plenty of family-friendly entertainment.
Barcelona offers all the festivities of Christmas, without the frosty temperatures. While the weather is much cooler than the summer months, it remains mild with plenty of blue skies, perfect for Christmas shopping.
Budapest offers everything you could need from a Christmas getaway. During the day, take a visit to the ice rink in Budapest City Park. At night, hop on a cruise along the river Dunabe to take in the attractions from the comfort of a heated boat.
Hosting one of Europe's longest Yuletide seasons, Krakow turns into a magical destination from the end of November all the way past New Year, complete with glittering Christmas trees. Surrounded by gothic cathedrals and grand squares, Christmas traditions can be found throughout the city, including pop-up puppet theatres, carol singers and more.
Amsterdam lights the way when it comes to Christmas, as the Dutch make the most of the festive season and the city sparkles with thousands of fairy lights, amusements and Christmas trees. Yuletide cheer spills out to the streets in Amsterdam, where freshly-prepared traditional cuisine and handmade trinkets go hand in hand.
