Since most Christmas markets across the globe are dark this year amidst the coronavirus pandemic, the staff at Frequent Business Traveler wanted to celebrate the holiday by sharing photos from markets we visited in past years.

Indeed, just last year, we went to over a dozen markets on the Continent, including the Münchner Christkindlmarkt at Marienplatz and the Christkindlmarkt at Sendlinger Tor, both in Munich Germany; the Weihnachtsmarkt at Mirabellplatz and the Hellbrunner Adventmarkt, near Schloß Hellbrunn, both in Salzburg, Austria; and Advent at the Marktplatz Mondsee, adjacent to the Basilica St. Michael, in Mondsee, Austria, which of course is the chapel in which Captain von Trapp marries Maria in the movie, “The Sound of Music.”

One could say that you haven’t truly experienced Christmas unless you’ve been to a Christmas market in Europe. They are an excellent source for traditional gifts, mugs of Glühwein, and an unparalleled festive feeling.

Christmas markets can be found in every major city and town in many countries and the best are found in Austria, France, and Germany, and we can’t wait until 2021 to visit them again.

Here is a photographic look at Christmas markets in Austria, Germany, and the United States.
