Christmas Markets

Christmas markets for schools

3 days from £189! A Christmas Market school trip is a perfect opportunity to take your students abroad for an excursion with a difference. From the first week of Advent, traditional Christmas Markets fill many Northern European cities with a wonderful and joyful atmosphere, creating an enchanting festive atmosphere which your students will adore.

Brightly coloured market stalls; the glow of fairy lights and candles; the smell of waffles dipped in chocolate and freshly-baked biscuits, create a special Advent atmosphere, which is a great way to celebrate the festive season and experience different European cultures.

Christmas markets are affordable and are a great way for Students of Language & Culture to practice their skills. Whether you’re looking for a christmas market closer to home, such as Lille in France or a traditional German market such as Aachen in northern Germany, we can put together a custom christmas market school trip for your group. So sit back, and let us do the work for you!

Aachen from £189pp

Aachen Christmas Markets

With approximately 125 stalls on the squares and streets surrounding the Cathedral and Town Hall the area is transformed into a stunning Christmas City. Germany’s closest Christmas market to the UK, Aachen is best known for Aachen Printen, a kind of ginger bread, potato fritters and marzipan bread.

The Aachen Cathedral is a 'must see' attraction and looks even more spectacular during the Christmas festivities. In addition, Suermondt Ludwig Museum and Couven Museum are popular excursions for school groups.
