The Leipzig Xmas Market tradition dates back to the 15th century, and it has a pretty legendary reputation, having been founded in the center of the old town! There are more than 250 stalls which sell both food, drink and decorations for Christmas, so don’t forget to make the most of the opportunity! Take a loved one this December and go and see the Fairytale forest, where there’s also a maze! If you wanna take a trip down memory lane and feel like a kid again, then go to the elf workshop as well as the Bakery in Cafe Zimtstern!

How to book:
I found this deal by combining a hotel and flights deal. You need to book the hotel and flights separately by following the links to the providers’ pages. I suggest that you open the hotel and flights deal at the same time in your browser to keep an eye on the live prices and I recommend that you book the flights first. Please feel free to amend the dates, airport or length of stay yourself to suit you.
