When December begins, the Christmas market and Germany are almost synonymous. It would be difficult for one to imagine without the other. If you are planning a tour to Germany, you have two basic options. Want to travel on your own? Or do you want something like an escort tour or package tour to Germany?
Traveling on your own is the most flexible. Plan your route, pay attention to the wind and make your trip a free adventure. However, flexibility comes at a price. If you plan to visit the German Christmas market, you will want to see at least three (probably more) markets. That means moving to three or four different cities and moving through these cities to visit markets and other local markets attractions.
If you drive a car on the autobahn in winter and are not enthusiastic about negotiating big cities and villages beyond the wheel, or if you are not sure whether to travel to more than 4 cities and transfer, everything you buy with baggage Goods and guided Christmas tours are worth considering.
I admit I have an opinion on the subject. Planning and leading a small group package tour to Germany. I also traveled alone for business and leisure. In my experience, a Christmas tour is the best option for most people if their travel focus is specialized and time is limited. This is especially true if you are traveling in December and you are trying to cover more than one city and there is no time limit.
This also applies to independent, discerning travelers who are shy about mass market tourism and group thinking. The secret is to find the right kind of Christmas tour. You don’t have to be a cookie cutter tour. Look around and find special tours with the kind of features and great service that meet your standards. You might pay a few more dollars, but it is worth it.
Smaller is better. Make sure the group size is 15-20 or less. It is also important for the owner to operate. Many travel agencies simply sell tours operated by other companies. There is no “in-game skins” for those who book tours. When arranging through a small company run by the owner, the owner is more likely to actually plan a trip and plan a trip directly. A quality, owner-led Christmas tour includes not only market visits, but also extras that you might miss if you are traveling alone, such as Christmas music, specialized exhibitions, and visits with artisans.
Germany’s top Christmas market The Christmas market in
Cologne is popular. The Munich Christmas market is also attractive, and the Berlin Christmas market has grown since the collapse of the wall. These trade shows tend to be very large. Big is not necessarily a bad thing, but all German holiday markets are related to tradition and history. Many people feel that the southeastern and eastern parts of Germany are the most popular places in Germany (especially Franconia, Thuringia, Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt), so Christmas tours to Germany are at least some of the region Make sure that the market of the country is included.
