Christmas Market in Prague on the Old Town Square

Christmas Market in Prague on the Old Town Square

How can the Old Town Square in Prague be even more picturesque? Simply visit it during the Christmas Season! The Christmas Market in Prague on the Old Town Square is open until January 1st, so either hurry up to see it this year by yourself or already mark December in your Calendar for a Trip to Prague in 2016. Even though the market is also very nice during the Day you should visit the Christmas Market on the Old Town Square up from 4 pm, when the sun is setting and disappearing behind the Petrin Hill. When everything is illuminated and the sky is getting darker and darker the atmosphere changes to the better.

Hot Mulled Wine, warm chestnuts and over fire cooked ham. These three are the typical foods you can try at the Christmas Market in Prague on the Old Town Square, but one thing you should definitely try is Trdelnik. Trdelnik can be found outside the Czech Republic in the meantime as well, at the Christmas Market in Friedrichshafen for example, but they have their origins in the Czech Republic. Trdelnik are pastries wrapped around a round thing, and baked on a grill. You can try them plain or filled with Nutella or whipped cream. I tried one of these at a smaller market in between my Hotel, the Augustine Prague, and the Charles Bridge they ones were absolutely not tasty at all. They just were hard and probably just old. But I heard the Trdelnik at the Christmas Market on the Old Town Square were much better. So try them there!

What’s really nice is that there is not just one Christmas Market in Prague, there are several ones all over. At almost every corner you can find some stalls selling Hot Mulled Wine, something to eat and the Trdelnik. This just creates such a nice atmosphere, no matter where in Prague you are walking. Below you find some Pictures of the Christmas Market in Prague on the Old Town Square, the Trdelink and some of the booths I found all over Prague.

Have you ever visited Prague, during the Christmas Season?
