Both the historic Christmas market and the Finnish village with its typical Nordic delicacies await you with open arms.

Your stroll around the Christmas market will be accompanied by the glorious sound of trombonists playing festive tunes from the balcony of the Old Town Hall. In addition to a wide selection of culinary delights, your Christmas Tour to Leipzig will also introduce you to a range of crafts, traditional toys and ceramics from the Ore Mountains.

Further information about our festive tours to Germany

Experience German Christmas magic!

The cold air fills with the scent of mulled wine and gingerbread, Christmas carols ring out across streets and squares… Advent is a wonderful time to visit Germany, especially during one of our festive tours to Germany! For a few enchanting weeks, German towns and villages show themselves from their most cosy and romantic side – offering you the opportunity to stroll through traditional Christmas markets and let yourself be charmed by their unique atmosphere.

The breaking of our bookings record for Advent, Christmas and New Year's tours seems to have become an annual event in recent years  and no trip is complete without a visit to one of Germany's oldest and most charming Christmas markets!

To whet your appetite:

  • The "Striezelmarkt" in Dresden
  • Leipzig Christmas Market
  • The "Christkindlesmarkt" in Nuremberg
  • The "Christkindlmarkt" in Munich

Our incoming service for groups to Germany

Dresden’s Striezelmarkt and Nuremberg’s Christkindlesmarkt are amongst Germany’s oldest and most celebrated Christmas markets, and make a great occasion for a club tour, company excursion or special interest holiday. Go on a festive tour to Germany with AugustusTours and experience festive cheer in Germany’s most beautiful cities!

More information about our festive tour suggestions

The smaller, alternative Christmas markets now established in many larger towns and cities are also gaining in popularity. When you're next in Germany for some festive cheer, why not try the romantic Advent market next to Dresden's famous Frauenkirche (Church of Our Lady) or the Mediaeval Christmas Market in Munich?!

It's well worth rounding off your tour with a trip out into the surrounding area. This is especially true in Dresden, where you are just a stone's throw away from the Ore Mountains a winter wonderland with a long tradition of hand-made candle holders (Schwibbögen), revolving pyramids and incense smokers (Räuchermännchen).

A visit to a gingerbread maker's in Pulsnitz or a stollen baker's in Dresden is always a tasty treat for your festive tour. If your journey takes you to Bavaria, why not enjoy its winter landscapes with an excursion to Neuschwanstein Castle or Garmisch-Partenkirchen.

Our portfolio also includes tours spread over Christmas and New Year's Eve, with many hotels offering special packages including a traditional Christmas menu or a gala dinner to see in the New Year. If you would like to take in an opera or a concert during your stay, we recommend Berlin, Dresden, Munich or a combination thereof!
