Indulge the senses by exploring the best of Europe’s festive market scene. This small-group solos tour is packed with visits to the region’s most famous markets and some less conventional ones. The itinerary also features all of the usual sightseeing opportunities along with plenty of free time. Come nightfall each evening, you’ll rug up and head to the markets to eat, drink and peruse the stalls. We then add in a few breathtakingly beautiful Bavarian castles-and you have yourself the merriest tour of the year!

Vendors hawk roasted chestnuts and keep warm over bubbling vats of gluhwein (hot spiced/ mulled wine). Lights twinkle above, snow crunches underfoot and the air rings with cheery song. Many would agree – it’s the most magical time to be in Europe.

We will meander from stall to stall savouring local delicacies, enjoying the bustling energy and absorbing the best of the Yuletide festivities, all while trawling for unique festive handicrafts.

Nutcrackers, delicate tree decorations, candles, marionettes, wooden carvings, baubles made of glass, nativity scenes and so many sparkly trinkets…it’s the perfect opportunity to pick up some gorgeous Christmas gifts for friends and family back home (or expand your own collection).

Everywhere you look there is chocolatey, gingery, cinnamon-infused treats, baked apples, giant pretzels, stollen (Christmas cake filled with fruit and nuts), lebkuchen (spiced glazed cookies), wood-fired meats, fruit teas and steaming pots of hot chocolate. However, eating, drinking and shopping aside, European Christmas markets are all about atmosphere. Once you’re rugged up with a mug of cheer in a gloved hand, take the time to just wander around. You will most likely stumble upon an ice rink busy with twirling skaters, witness carollers and brass quartets bringing their music to the streets and rugged-up revellers drifting between bars and art exhibitions.

Will you join us and help spread the festive cheer?

I’m really enthusiastic about the niche you are determined to cover in the market, and have the feeling stumbling on Two’s a Crowd on the internet was definitely meant to be.

Excellent throughout.

The entire 14 days ran so smoothly from Two's a Crowd booking my flights to  airport transfers and then the 12 days camping in the Kimberley. Excellent throughout. Congratulations. Marjorie
