It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas…as we approach this Autumn/Winter season we here at Cassidy thought it was to spread some Christmas cheer with you all. If you are looking for a city break this festive season we highly recommend you take a trip to some of Europe’s magical Christmas Markets, a treasured festive tradition. Wrap yourself up in your warm coat and scarf with a hot chocolate or mulled wine in your hand to keep you warm,  as you walk around the various artisanal stalls selling traditional wares, gifts, delicious local cuisine, and much more. In our latest blog, we list some of the top Christmas markets in Europe.


Budapest Christmas markets have been renowned globally as being one of the most beautiful cities to explore during the festive season. Starting from mid-November, the city has markets dotted all across the place from town to town. The two large and most popular ones to note would be Christmas Fair Vorosmarty Square and Christmas Market by the Basilica. The Vörösmarty Square market is located in the heart of the city and is the perfect place to experience Hungarian cuisine, as there are culinary booths filled with delicious treats for your taste buds. You can also explore the local craft shops, ideal for those looking to find the perfect Christmas gift. If you’re taking a family break, the market is extremely kid friendly with animations, concerts and activities organised every day on the main stage for kids to enjoy. The Christmas Market by the Basilica is a must-visit on your trip to Budapest as not only artisan and gourmet stalls, they have an ice rink at its center – how much more festive can you get? Better yet, magical projections take place every 30 minutes with projections of different animated festive films for you to enjoy.  Historic Budapest is the perfect place to get in the Christmas spirit.
