A few days before Christmas begins, it is a good time to prepare a trip and enjoy the Christmas atmosphere in some of the perfect cities for lovers of this time of year. With the lighting of the lights these cities are transformed, the windows of the department stores end up hypnotizing you, the streets and shops look spectacular with their Christmas decoration and the streets are filled with street markets, which makes you be like in a story.
Nor should we forget about activities of this time of the year such as concerts or children's choirs singing Christmas carols, skating on the ice rinks or eating in a street stall, a typical food dish, accompanied by a wine.
And although most cities in the world at Christmas dress up, we wanted to make a list of what we consider to be the 10 best cities to travel on Christmas.
1. New York
New York at Christmas is magical and one of the best cities to travel at Christmas. We can enjoy many Christmas activities from the end of November until the beginning of January, at which time the department stores mount spectacular showcases such as the Macy's, Bloomingdale's, Saks Fifth Avenue, Henri Bendel, Barney's, Bergdorf Goodman, Macy's or the luxurious Tiffany's.
The lighting of the Christmas tree next to the Rockfeller Center ice rink is also one of the most important places and moments of New York at Christmas and one of those moments that we cannot miss.
Nor can we stop seeing the Christmas decoration full of lights of the houses in the Dyker Heights area in Brooklyn or the Christmas markets, other traditions of the city, among which are the Bryant Park and Union Square. And if we didn't have enough, to say goodbye to the city, in addition to the last shopping on Fifth Avenue, we can go to The Rockettes concert at the Radio City Christmas Spectacular, the most famous in the city at Christmas.
Located in northern France, Strasbourg considered the capital of Christmas, along with all the fairytale villages in the Alsace area, is one of the places you can not miss at this time of year. It has the oldest Christmas market in France, from 1570, and most markets are open from November 25 to December 31. It also has up to 11 different markets spread over some of the most beautiful squares and areas of the city. It is worth the Petite France market to buy handicraft products, the one in the place Gutemberg where we will find the market dedicated to Belgium this year, at the Place Broglie we can buy all kinds of Christmas items and food stalls, in the one of the Cathedral Square we can stop to have a good mulled wine and in the Place des Meuniers buy any of the typical products of the area ... Do you dare to visit them?
