Duration
7 Days
Prices From:
US$ 1,262

Get into the spirit of the season with a visit to Germany’s world-famous Christmas Markets. Passing from Frankfurt to Nuremberg, Dresden, and finally Berlin, you’ll explore gorgeous cityscapes and enjoy the festivities of several Christmas Markets, which attract millions of visitors each year.


This 7-day Germany vacation takes you to some of the most popular Christmas Markets in the country. It’s an ideal winter vacation for families and holidaymakers.

Your wintery German vacation begins in Frankfurt, Germany’s financial hub and home to the international airport that connects over 60 million passengers a year. Take the day to explore the city’s mixture of tradition and modernism, heading to the Altstadt to see half-timbered homes and classical centres like the Romsberg and Paulskirche, the seat of the first democratic parliament in Germany in 1848.

After getting a taste for Germany in Frankfurt, head to nearby Wurzburg to tour its 1,300-year-old streets. From Wurzburg, continue to Rothenburg ob der Tauber, the most beautiful city along the Romantic Route and the site of your first Christmas Market. Enjoy a glass of mulled wine and some roasted chestnuts, and admire the gorgeous decorations that transform the city’s medieval centre.

After getting into the spirit of the season in Rothenburg, head to Nuremberg, the second largest city in Bavaria and the centre of much of the country’s history. Take a guided tour to see how the city was painstakingly recreated after World War II and admire many of its most beloved buildings, like Nuremberg Castle. Of course, the chief attraction to you and everyone else come December is the popular Christkindlesmarkt that attracts two million visitors per year. Built around the stunning Gothic Frauenkirche, the Christkindlesmarkt is one of the most popular Christmas markets in the world.

Continue along to Dresden, the gorgeous city rebuilt from the ashes of World War II. A morning city tour will take you to the reconstructed Frauenkirche, the Opera House, and along the picturesque Elbe River. Afterwards, head over to Altmarkt Square to continue your celebration of the season at the Striezelmarkt, which has been entrancing merrymakers since 1434. Today, over two and a half million people visit the market each year.

Close out your Christmas vacation in Berlin, the country’s capital and one of the most vibrant cities on the planet. While Berlin used to be known for being austere, it’s quickly transformed into the coolest place in Europe and offers something for every kind of traveller. Take a tour of the landmarks, from the State Opera to Brandenburg Gate and Checkpoint Charlie. Then, head to one of its many Christmas Markets to close out your celebration of the holidays with one final glass of mulled wine and one final chance to buy a charming traditional toy or trinket.

This Germany vacation to the country’s famous Christmas Markets is a perfect way to celebrate the holidays.
