Christmas markets in Europe are becoming ever-popular

Christmas markets in Europe are gaining in popularity, according to an expert.

Eric Hutchins, general manager of Holidays by Rail, said that visiting the continent to take part in these events has always been a fun thing to do, however they are now more en vogue than ever.

"We are seeing not only the 'boomer' generation on these trips but their adult children now accompany them. The spectacle of decorated towns, snow covered streets, twinkling lights, and traditional delicious food brings out an unequalled festive spirit of camaraderie and bonhomie. Especially when travelling with one’s family," he added.

Those booking Christmas market hotels will also be able to experience new cities for the first time, and could include other sightseeing opportunities in their travels.

Among the most popular festive markets are those in Germany, with events taking place in major towns and cities around the country, including Nuremberg, Freiburg, Munich and Cologne.
