Prague from £136 pp

The most beautiful Christmas scenes are in abundance at Prague’s Old Town Square, where a gold-glittered Christmas tree casts warm light over pretty ornaments and delicate silk and lace.

Wenceslas Square is also a Christmas market shopping haven, thanks to its handcrafted toys and soft woollen clothes. You can always stop by to enjoy a steaming mug of brandy-infused coffee while watching magical nativity performances. Many of our hotels place you within a short stroll of both squares – perfect for experiencing all the atmosphere of a Czech Christmas.

Vienna from £210 pp

As the thermometer plunges in Vienna and the star speckled nights sky draws in, the crisp winter’s air is the warming reminder that Christmas is just around the corner.

The heady scent of treats and mulled wine fills Austria’s capital come mid-November, when Vienna plays host to Christkindlmarkt, Christmas markets full of nostalgia, charm and romance. During Advent traditional wooden market stalls spring up all over the city. Notably Spittelberg,  City Hall and St. Charles Borromeo are a must with neighbouring Rathauspark’s festivities bringing out your inner child with fairytale scenes, animals and the Christkindl Express.
