Bakers Dolphin reportunprecedented demand to visit markets in Bruges, Trier and Cologne
Traditional Christmas Markets have popped up in cities across the UK in recent years but there's nothing quite like the magic of experiencing an authentic European Market to get in the mood for Christmas.
West Country coach holiday specialists Bakers Dolphin say there has been unprecedented demand in the region to visit markets in places like Bruges, Trier and Cologne and have launched a programme of tours to eleven festive destinations this Christmas time.
Sales and Marketing Director Amanda Harrington said: "Christmas markets are a fabulous way to get into the festive spirit early and many people are starting traditions to visit a different Christmas Market each year.
"This year we are going to more markets than ever before in our luxury gold coaches. With mulled wine, hot chocolate and plenty of pastries and chocolates as well as the beautiful hand-made crafts and unique gift ideas, Christmas markets are an enchanting place for the whole family or groups of friends.
"There are so many gorgeous destinations to choose from, each one offering its own traditions and spectacles. There's the Aachen and Valkenburg tour which takes visitors underground where caves which once provided shelter for soldiers are transformed into candlelit corridors full of decorated stalls.
"Then there's the Amiens Christmas Markets which also takes in the Somme Battlefields and the Austrian Christmas Markets set against the backdrop of the Alps."
A special Festive Breaks brochure has been produced by Bakers Dolphin where for customers and has organised special luxury gold coach excursions to the Christmas markets this year.
Amanda continued: "With on-board DVD, multi-track sound system and fully reclining seats with extra leg room the gold coaches provide an added element of luxury for people to enjoy their festive breaks."
Christmas Market breaks start from £269 for three nights dinner, bed and breakfast.
Bakers Dolphin also offers exciting Christmas and New Year breaks, Turkey'n'Tinsel tours and Christmas shopping experiences.
All tours can be found in the Bakers Dolphin Festive Breaks brochure. To request a copy or book a holiday call 01934 415000 or visit www.bakersdolphin.com
