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.
1. Riga, Latvia
When? 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.
