You'll learn about the history of these traditional markets and find the best stands to visit. Take the opportunity to shop for one-of-a-kind Christmas gifts for your loved ones.

Biking is the easiest way to get from one market to the other and between your rides, you can warm up at the stands with a Glühwein (hot spiced wine) or a Feuerzangenbowle (a special mulled wine punch). Don't forget to tru the typical German Christmas treats like candied almonds, gingerbread, and glazed apples.
The markets are filled with food stands that sell traditional German food, so you can stay after the tour and continue eating, drinking, and taking in the Christmas mood with the sparkling lights and traditional Christmas carols.
