  • Try some aromatic mulled wine served the traditional way, straight from a wooden barrel

Locals in Krakow wait all year for their favorite annual Christmas market. This is the place to try festive dishes and look for traditional, handmade gifts, but it’s more than just a place to shop.
What to Expect
The Palace under the Rams (Palac pod Baranami), is the meeting place for this tour, and 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 located in the Main Square, in the very heart of the city. 

You will start the Krakow Christmas tour with a cup of hot coffee or winter tea in a secret café that’s hidden deep underground. Once you're warmed up, you'll head back outdoors and take a walk among the wooden stalls of the market, where 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!). You will sample some regional cheeses like oscypek, and try aromatic mulled wine, served directly from huge wooden barrels. 

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

To conclude the tour, you will dine in a restaurant known for serving the best festive dishes of the season.  Your local guide tells you all about Christmas traditions in Krakow and throughout Poland, both today and back in communist times.
