Prague Christmas Markets

Prague Christmas Markets

Czech treats, nativity-ready livestock and towering trees – Prague has a real mixture of festive ingredients. You can keep things traditional at the charmingly decorated arts and crafts market stalls, or swig local beer and feast on fish.
Havel’s Market (Dec - Jan)*

Havel’s Market (Dec - Jan)*

The permanent market gets a facelift in the winter months. With a fresh festive look, you’ll be spoilt with even more choice than the usual fruit and veg. Arts and crafts, wooden toys and puppets, and even ceramics can usually all be found, so get ready to experience a Christmassy kick to the pretty lines of stalls.

Old Town Square Market (Dec - Jan)*

Old Town Square Market (Dec - Jan)*

This is every bit a festive affair, from the decorative wooden huts to the craft stalls, tasty food, and animals. That’s right – Prague’s oldest and most popular Christmas market has a Bethlehem Inn-like stable of livestock, pony rides for the little ones and a towering tree draped in baubles and twinkling lights.

Peace Square Market (Dec - Jan)*

Peace Square Market (Dec - Jan)*

A bit further out, this market has some of Prague’s finest produce. It’s more about the traditional feel than the bright lights of modern stalls. There are around 60 huts, all specialising in edible treats, toys and candles. If you’re seeking something special for your tree, you can stock up on decorations too.

Republic Square Market (Dec - Jan)*

Republic Square Market (Dec - Jan)*

With 30 stalls to browse, this is the more intimate of the bunch. It has a cosy allure and rustic feel, and you can easily hop off a tram and be right in the middle of the festive fun. If you’re looking to add to your box of decorations, you can get your hands on mistletoe, wreaths and candles here.

St. George’s Basilica Market, Prague Castle (Dec - Jan)*

St. George’s Basilica Market, Prague Castle (Dec - Jan)*

Prague Castle throws open its doors to huts ready and raring to sell plenty of local produce. If you want to make merry and see some cultural hotspots, this is the place. You’ll find good old-fashioned fun by the church, and you might even catch some carol singing.

Wenceslas Square Market (Dec - Jan)*

Wenceslas Square Market (Dec - Jan)*

You’ll know you’ve reached the Wenceslas Square market – it’s typically adorned with sweeping decorations across the buildings, rows of stalls and an air of magic. A tad smaller than in the Old Town, you’ll be greeted by blacksmiths and other market traders, as well as aromas of scrumptious food.

0.5 Km to Prague Christmas Markets - Map

1. Festive feasts
Good news, beer fans: Prague is a fantastic spot showcasing top Czech pints. Swap the mulled wine for Pilsner Urquell, a lager brewed since 1842, the sublime Staropramen, or the old favourite, Budvar.
2. Showing off
An evening in Prague doesn’t have to be all gorging at the stalls – enjoy a very decadent outing to the opera, ballet or a classical concert. You’ll receive the royal treatment in the various baroque venues and glamorous halls.
3. Christmas in a carriage
Top off a truly festive adventure with a horse-drawn carriage ride around the most historic parts of the city. Think Santa’s sleigh, with a traditional Czech slant.
4. See the sights
If you like the sound of baroque buildings and long bridges, then Prague really is the right place. In the surroundings of the enchanting Prague Castle, you’ll find churches, halls and gardens to explore.
5. Old Town strolls
Picture sharp spires and burnt orange roofs all dusted with snow. Prague’s Old Town is filled with amazing architecture and must-see landmarks, so it’s ideal for a festive walk.
6. Carping on
When the locals fast in Prague, they trade carp in for meat. The fish has got a strong religious meaning in the city, so it’s sold in big tubs a few weeks before Christmas Eve.
