European Christmas Markets
Wednesday, December 18 at 10:00 p.m.
As winter settles in across Europe, residents go out into the cold and enjoy a big, month-long outdoor street party.
Join WGTE as we learn about the tradition of the Christmas Markets, visit spectacular towns in Europe and their Christmas Markets, learn of the history of the towns, and enjoy the magic and enchantment of medieval and castle towns in Europe at Christmas time.
Locations include Bernkastel, Nuremberg, Michestadt, Strasbourg, Lucerne and Basel.
In each location, the markets come alive in the dark of winter with festively decorated wooden stalls offering hot wine, regional food, Christmas decorations, sweet confections, toys, regional crafts and local entertainment.
