Top 5 Christmas Market Destinations

Mulled wine can often be found at Christmas market destinations

With Christmas fast approaching, many of us feel we could do with a sneaky weekend away to escape the stress of the Christmas shopping. Whether you feel like having a spot of winter sunshine or really getting into the Christmas mood by visiting of the best Christmas market destinations, make sure that if you are leaving your car at the airport you get the best possible rate by visiting our Airport Parking Shop.

Berlin

There is no doubt about it: the Germans really know how to put on a Christmas Market and one of the best destinations is Berlin with no fewer than five major markets. Whether you prefer the traditional market, or the one with the outdoors ice-rink or fair, there is one to suit everybody.

A trip to Berlin would not, however, be complete without a spot of sightseeing. If museums are your thing, don’t miss a visit to Museum Island for its treasure trove of antiquities. If 20th century history is of more interest, you are going to love seeing the many sections of the Berlin Wall and Checkpoint Charlie.

Berlin has two airports, and between them they are served by flights from London Heathrow, Gatwick, Stansted and Manchester.

If you plan on stuffing your suitcase full of Christmas goodies, to say nothing of the duty-free, which could help spread a little Christmas cheer, then taking your car to the airport definitely makes sense. Use the links above for the best possible rates. Read More
