Browse classic Christmas markets
Many of Europe’s Christmas markets are going digital in 2020. And SoLo Craft Fair’s weekly virtual night markets, where artisanal products are tantalisingly displayed as Instagram Stories every Monday evening at 7pm, is a great way to enjoy the Christmas market experience without setting a foot outside. So make some hot mulled wine, wear your mittens and woolly hats, put on a Christmas Spotify playlist and recreate the enchanting wintry atmosphere from the comfort of your home. Should additional inspiration be needed, watch a 360-degree tour of a Vienna Christmas market on YouTube.
