I have been to various Christmas markets in Europe. This is one thing I love to visit especially during holiday season. I just find the atmosphere during this event very interesting and exciting.
I did able to experience many Christmas markets in some places in France, England, Austria, Switzerland and Germany and still hoping to visit more...someday!
Last month, I received a travel catalogue where various trips are offered. I was already looking for some trips and booked one last month, a trip to Tuscany, a region in Italy for a week. You can find my post about it here.

Included in the places to be visited are Dresden, Marienberg, Meissen and Leipzig. I have been to Dresden two years ago but I still want to go back there. This time I will be visiting during cold winter season but that is not a problem for me. I always pass Leipzig everytime I do some trips in that part of the region but I wasn't able to visit its Altstadt or Old City yet. It will also be my first time in Marienberg and Meissen.
I wanted to search for travel information about these places before our trip commence.
Included in that 3-day trip are 3-star hotel accommodation, bus, breakfast and dinner and the trips to these 4 places. I invited some friends for this trip and we availed a discount because we booked it before September 11. I believed this trip for 118.00 Euros is already very cheap considering the many things included on it. For booking it earlier, we received a 50.00 discount per person. Truly a good deal! I can already buy souvenirs for that money.
My friends are already very excited about this trip and so do I!
