Christmas market in Nordics among world top seven

US website recommends Christmas markets around the world

The US website Independent Traveler recommends seven Christmas markets around the world, six of which are in Europe – and one in Scandinavia. Liseberg Christmas Market in the Nordic countries’ biggest amusement park in Gothenburg is even more spectacular with its “live” serenading Christmas tree consisting of red- and green-robed singers on a structure shaped like a tree. An ice bar serves ice-cold drinks while visitors shop for traditional handmade gifts. The market is not open every day, however, so visitors should check beforehand.
Other unmissable Christmas markets are in the medieval town of Strasbourg; Nuremberg, one of Germany’s oldest and best Christmas fairs; Trento, Italy, set “in a glacial valley below the Alps” of “pastel medieval buildings, Gothic cathedrals and a romantic 13th-century castle”; Berlin for its famous sprawling market; the Schonbrunn Palace Christmas Market, Vienna; and Christkindlmarket in Chicago, which has all the magic of Europe’s festive fairs.
