Malmo – Sweden

This Nordic market starts on 24 of November and lasts till 23 of December. The Malmo market is a great place to find handmade decorations and taking a break to warm up over mulled wine with ginger biscuits or saffron-flavored buns. You simply have to visit Katrinetorp manor if you’re looking for antiques, poinsettias and festive food in general, while Good Jul is great for recycled, fair-trade and vintage gifts.

Gengenbach – Germany

There are few towns that look as Christmassy as Gengenbach does, staring with 30 of November and ending on the 23rd of December. Located in Germany’s Black Forest, a half-timbered old town, featuring timber chalets and fairy-lights, you should make sure to check out the carolelrs in front of the 18-th century, pink-and-cream Rathaus – Town Hall.

Barcelona – Spain

Maybe not the first destination on one’s mind when going for a holiday market, but the festivities here start on 24 November and last till 23 December and they involve not a Santa, but a present-pooping log called Caga Tio. Obviously being in Barcelona regardless of the season is a great destination so you might just want to check it out during this season.
