Neighboured by Germany, France and Belgium, the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg has many influences which have integrated themselves into the regional culture. Wandering through the decorated Luxembourg Christmas markets, these influences become apparent in the wide variety of food, wines and regional crafts that are available across the market stalls.
One of the smallest countries in Europe, the country's towns and cities are bursting with character, with the capital city of Luxembourg itself being a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site. These beautiful backdrops make the perfect picturesque setting to accompany the colourful decorations, twinkling lights and evergreen trees of the annual Luxembourg Christmas markets.
The seasonal mood is further enhanced by the festive sounds of fanfares, choirs and brass bands that emanate throughout the lovingly decorated streets and town squares. Whilst you enjoy the cheerful ambience, the wooden chalets that adorn the market place offer a range of gifts to delight all ages with a variety of handmade Christmas decorations and candles, local crafts and seasonal music.
In addition to finding the perfect gift on the Luxembourg Christmas markets, you also have the chance to indulge in a selection of gastronomic specialities, from traditional soups and breads to spiced mulled wine and potent Schnapps.
