Spending Christmas in Germany

By: Keith Barrett

Increasing numbers of us are looking to spend the Christmas break away from home. There are plenty of advantages for travelling at this time of year, not least of which is the chance to avoid the stress of entertaining at home.

Spending Christmas away from home can be a great way for the entire family to experience an entirely different side to the festive season. Equally, if you are looking for a quiet Christmas away from the crowds, then travelling abroad can be a great solution.

Germany makes an ideal location to spend Christmas, with many people choosing to travel to Germany for a holiday at this time of year.

The scenery, landscape and climate all seem well suited to this type of holiday.

There are a number of your operators who offer escorted touring holidays that take in some of the best Christmas markets that Germany has to offer.

The Christmas markets of Germany are unique - unlike the UK, where the festive period seems to be dominated by commercialism, Germany retains its sense of community and the importance of local crafts.

With so many of the buildings decorated to celebrate the festive period too, its hard not to enjoy yourself in Germany at this time of year.

If you are thinking about an escorted holiday to Germany, then which cities are the best to visit?

Dresden, Hamburg and Bremen all have popular Christmas markets, while spending time in Berlin is always enjoyable.

For a unique experience, you might consider spending some time in the Black Forest - a great way to enjoy your Christmas break.
