Christmas is traditional and annual holiday!
Of course, it is difficult to pinpoint the oldest Christmas market: numerous cities, including Dresden, Germany, and Vienna, Austria, claim the “world’s oldest” title.
Records show that Vienna held a December market as far back as 1294, though these were more general December events and less concerned with holiday-specific activities. Dresden’s Strietzelmarkt, the oldest Christmas market in Germany, was first held in 1434. In Strasbourg, in the Alsace region of France, the country’s oldest Christmas market has operated continuously since 1570. But the oldest markets aren’t necessarily the most popular—Christmas markets in Cologne and Dortmund earn the most annual visits, with 4 million and 3.6 million shoppers, respectively, wandering their stall-lined streets each season.
