Call it Marché de Noël, Weihnachtsmarkt, Kerstmarkt or plain old Christmas Market, holiday vendors take up residence in towns all over the world during the holiday season. Take a virtual tour to visit some of the best in Europe; all centered on the same theme, but each dramatically different. Valkenburg, in The Netherlands, offers a truly unusual atmosphere: in a labyrinth under castle ruins! Aachen, Germany, has Charlemagne’s Cathedral as a backdrop for its market. Set up as a village of chalets with a giant Ferris wheel, Liège melds modern and traditional. At Kings Cross in London, England, mouth-watering artisanal cheeses, meats and baked goods tempt shoppers.
