Helsinki Christmas market getaways

For an almost-guaranteed white Christmas market experience, the Finnish capital is a great choice. If you visit from 4 to 22 December, you’ll be greeted by an enchanting festive ambiance – with glowing lights, delightful fairs and the aroma of mulled wine, known locally as glögi (spiced wine, with a dash of vodka). Traditionally Christmas in Helsinki is a quiet, family time…But the lead-up, 'pikkujoulu' or ‘little Christmas’ provides plenty of opportunity to absorb the festive atmosphere and enjoy special yuletide fare in the city’s bars and restaurants. Christmas markets spread across the city – with the biggest being held at Vanha Ylioppilastalo. Twinkling lights line the main shopping street, Aleksanterinkatu – where thoughtfully decorated shop windows captivate passers-by. While carol recitals in Helsinki’s churches provide warmth from the cold, and a magical atmosphere.
