17 Lesser-Known but Fabulous European Christmas Markets ...

Every year I look forward to my Christmas market visit.

Unfortunately, this year, I am restricted to the UK but I know it will still be fabulous because there really is something special about Christmas markets.

They’re a big tradition in Europe and there are some huge ones.

The German markets are particularly spectacular.

However, if you’re in or heading to Europe, some lesser-known Christmas markets are definitely worth checking out.

Riga, Latvia


29th November - 8th January

This year Riga celebrates the 10th anniversary of the Old Town Christmas Fair, which should be a jolly festive occasion for all those who love delicious smoked salmon, handmade jewelry and enjoy attending creative workshops that will enable them to become a future artisan at the fair.
