Christmas Markets of Holland

November 29, 2014


Hop over to Holland this winter and you can enjoy one of a range of excellent Christmas markets selling everything from traditional arts and crafts to local food and drink.

With cheese, clogs and more to choose from, you can be sure to come back with the best presents this festive period!


Amsterdam is a fascinating city, which attracts visitors from all over the world all year-round, but for the festive period, the Dutch capital is covered in festive lights and decorations and transforms into a winter wonderland. From November to January, the canals play host to the Festival of Light, bathing the city in a sea of technicolour. Amsterdam has a huge range of shops, department stores and boutiques all over the city, but also hosts a number of outdoor Christmas-themed markets during the winter.

The Flower Market sells Christmas trees and other festive flora, while the Local Goods Christmas Market on Bellamystraat sells sustainable and locally-sourced gifts. Amstelpark hosts the Pure Winter Market, and the Winter Market Amsterdam is held in central Beuersplein.


The Valkenburg Christmas market is one of the most interesting markets in Europe. Located just a few hours’ drive away from Amsterdam, the festive period sees a local cave transformed into Santa’s Grotto, with Christmas decorations and lights.

Entry to the cave is €5, but you’ll quickly realise that’s a bargain when you see the wonderful job done on the decorations and the huge range of gifts on offer from the stalls.


The Magical Maastricht market will give visitors a cosy and enjoyable Christmas market experience, albeit on a smaller scale than Amsterdam or Valkenburg. The market is located in the city’s main plaza, Vrijthof Square, with a number of stalls to see and even an ice rink if you’re feeling brave!

During the Christmas market, the city is lit up by light installations from a collective of local artists, making the centre a beautiful festive sight.
