Christmas shopping breaks

There’s nothing quite like the buzz of Christmas shopping – picking the perfect present for a loved one, finding a one-of-a-kind gift at a Christmas market stall or simply heading to a new city to discover what their shops have in store. But it’s not all about ticking off that gift list. There are so many fun festivities to keep you, family and loved ones entertained throughout the entire Christmas season, especially when you can combine it all by staying with us. Whether it’s singing along to Christmas carols under the twinkling lights, visiting Santa and his elves or keeping warm with a glass (or two) of mulled wine, your festive break can be transformed into a magical Christmas Shopover. See our guide for the best places to shop and join in the festivities, our top Christmas markets and our festive menus to drool over.
