Why join the hordes of Christmas shoppers on your local high street, when you can pick up unique presents, hand-crafted decorations and home-made treats and delicacies at one of Germany’s festive Christmas markets? Make a weekend of it and enjoy a stay in one of these centrally-located Rocco Forte hotels.


Munich, the capital of Bavaria, is a wonderful Christmas destination; not only is it within driving distance of the Alps, but there are an incredible 74 Christmas markets within its vicinity. These range from the traditional (at Esslingen market you are transported back to the Middle Ages with fire jugglers, jesters and medieval food) to the modern (in Munich’s gay quarter you’ll find pink and purple pagodas in place of the usual timber huts and pink Christmas trees galore). There is even a market on an island in nearby Lake Chiemsee, where local delicacies are served including freshly-caught fish.
Stay: Rocco Forte’s The Charles Hotel is offering a “Winter Dreams” package to include a guide of the stalls and a gift-wrapping service.

Price: Prices are from Ђ220/*185 per person per night, including breakfast and hot chocolate and panettone on arrival and a gluhwein cocktail. Visit www.roccofortecollection.com or call 00800 7666 6667.


The Frankfurt Christmas market is over 600 years old and is one of the oldest in Germany. Today, it is made up of 200 beautifully-decorated stalls all set out in front of the restored, medieval town hall. The market in nearby Saarbr*cken is also well worth a visit, particularly for families; at 7pm each evening, Father Christmas flies his reindeer sleigh over the market to tell the story of Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer.

Stay: Rocco Forte’s Villa Kennedy is a luxury five-star hotel in the centre of Frankfurt nestled just off the south bank of the Main River. Close to the hotel is Frankfurt's residential area, Sachsenhausen, with its bustling bars and restaurants and Frankfurt's many museums are easily accessible.

Eastern Germany is the birthplace of both the glass bauble and Stollen cake – two of the most important parts of a German Christmas! Its also home to Seiffen, Germany’s most famous toy-making village and of course Berlin, Germany’s most fascinating city. With over 50 Christmas markets plus top chefs from near and far setting up gourmet marquees around the city, it is part festive fun and part gastronomic extravaganza.

Stay: Rocco Forte’s Hotel de Rome is perfectly located in the heart of this vibrant city on Bebelplatz, Hotel de Rome is housed in a stunning conversion of an existing building that was once the head office of the Dresdner Bank.

Price: Prices start at Ђ425/*359 per room, per night for its Christmas Shopping package, which includes: one night’s accommodation, a Christmas present on arrival, a 30-minute relaxing foot reflexology massage, and a shopping experience at the city’s exclusive department store of “The Corner Berlin”, including a glass of champagne, a personal shopping assistant and a 5 discount on all purchases.
