Edinburgh’s Christmas Market is officially open! Running from the 20th of November to the 4th of January, it offers a variety of spectacular markets, rides and attractions. From the St Andrew Square ice ring to the ferris wheel lit up in Christmas lights, it is enough to satisfy every festive spirit out there.

Best Christmas Markets

It’s that time of year again. I know it’s early, I know we’ve only just had Halloween and Bonfire Night, but people are beginning to mention that inevitable c-word. It is quite a while away, but with deadlines and exams and last minute shopping and travelling home, it will be Christmas before we know it. And to really cash in on this festive season, towns and cities all over the country are beginning to open their Christmas markets, to lure in those people who having been waiting for Christmas since boxing day of last year. I know it is certainly too early for some (at work the other day, I made a man a coffee with a snowman on top and he looked far from impressed), but we’ve decided to round up some of the best Christmas markets for you to see before they all start getting far too busy!

Christmas in Cologne

For a flavour of Christmas, forget any talk of the Edinburgh Christmas markets and make your way to Cologne, if you really want to feel some festive cheer. There are eight Christmas markets spread across the city, all within walking distance from each other and each portraying a different Christmas theme.
