Krakow’s Christmas Market and Flavours

Locals in Krakow wait all year for their favourite market: the annual Christmas market! Try festive dishes and look for traditional, handmade gifts. This market is more than just a place to shop, it’s a magical area, where it feels like time stands still as you explore. Browse the colourful wooden stalls, admiring all the beautiful baubles and chains and enjoy the scent of freshly cut Christmas trees.

The Palace under the Rams (Palac pod Baranami), your meeting place for this tour, is a great introduction to the merry atmosphere of a Polish Christmas! From the gate stretches an incredible view of Krakow’s traditional Christmas market, which, for the entire month of December, is in the Main Square, in the very heart of the city.

Start your Krakow Christmas adventure with a cup of hot coffee or winter tea in a secret café that’s hidden deep underground. Once you have warmed your insides, head back outdoors and take a walk among the wooden stalls of the market. Here, you can buy the finest of local souvenirs and handmade Christmas decorations to take back home with you (just leave lots of room in your suitcase!). Stop to sample some regional cheeses like oscypek and you will have the opportunity to try aromatic mulled wine, served directly from huge wooden barrels.

Admire some traditional Krakow Christmas cribs and learn why they are such an important tradition in Krakow. You will also visit a nearby gallery, where you will learn how beautiful hand-painted glass balls are made.

To finish off your Krakow tour, warm up in a local restaurant that’s known for serving the best festive dishes of the season. Dig into your plate as your local guide tells you all about Christmas traditions in Krakow and throughout Poland, both today and back in communist times.

Your tour ends at the Main Square of Krakow.
