Have you visited a Christmas Market or Holiday Market near home or when travelling?  WAVEJourney asked our Travel Bloggers Influencer Network (#TBIN) colleagues for their expert opinions about markets they have either visited and recommend, or those that are still on their wish list to visit soon.


Erfurt, the capital of Thuringia, dates back more than 1,270 years. It’s a charming city in any season with its beautifully preserved old quarter, half-timbered buildings and the Merchants Bridge—a medieval bridge lined with shops and galleries displaying the work of local artisans.

When the holiday season arrives, Erfurt transforms into a spell-binding display of sights and sounds. Erfurt is home to one of Germany’s largest Christmas markets.

Set against the spectacular backdrop of the majestic St. Mary’s Cathedral and the Church of St. Severus, the welcoming aromas of spiced mulled wine, gingerbread and sausage fill the air as you wander through the town’s main square. Over 200 wooden huts display everything from candles to hand crafted toys to Christmas tree decorations. There’s also plenty to satisfy your appetite including regional favorites such as Thuringian bratwurst and Erfurt schittchen, a stollen so good it’s been registered as a trademark.
