With the festive season fast approaching, Worldhotels, one of the world’s leading groups of unique independent hotels, is presenting special offers for those heading off to one of three magical Christmas markets in Innsbruck, Brussels or Budapest.
Charming Christmas holiday for families in Innsbruck, Austria
In Innsbruck, visitors can chose from three Christmas Markets which offer a beautiful view of the snow-covered Alps and belong to the most charming Christmas fairs in Europe: one in the Old Town, one in the Maria-Theresia-Strasse and finally a Christmas Market on the city’s castle, the Hungerburg. All three markets provide visitors with little presents, Christmas ornaments and Austrian specialties. For families the city’s marketplace will be the hotspot, with carousel rides, a petting zoo along and other attractions. The Grand Hotel Europa in Innsbruck offers a Christmas special from 26th November to 22nd December including a three-course dinner in the award-winning restaurant “Europa Stüberl”, breakfast and homemade Christmas pastries in the room upon arrival. A double room is available from £182* per night.

Winter wonder and ice skating in Brussels, Belgium
One of Brussels main winter attractions is the annual Plaisirs d'Hiver (Winter Wonder) with its magnificent decoration, an illuminated Ferris wheel and the city’s famous Christmas Fair. The market’s 200 stalls spread over the Bourse (stock exchange), Marché aux Poissons (fish market) and Place Sainte-Catherine offering a large variety of European specialties and hand-made souvenirs. At the Marchè aux Possons, visitors will love the ice skating rink where they can have a go at ice dancing. The Hotel Le Plaza is offering a special weekend-package from 26th November to 2nd January, including a free upgrade to a Deluxe room, buffet breakfast, late check out, a Christmas gift valued £26* and discounts at the Brussels Christmas market.

Award-winning Christmas market in Budapest, Hungary
Voted Europe’s best Christmas event by the Sunday Times, Budapest’s famous Christmas Market at the Vörösmarty Square is definitely worth a visit. Lasting for over a month, the market offers a series of Advent events including performances by folklore groups, string orchestras and choirs.  More than 100 traditional wooden huts sell small presents, candles and other hand-made products as well as Hungarian specialties such as kürtoskalács (sweet pastry), mulled wine or kenyérlángos (flat bread).
