Christmas markets are a popular pastime in Europe and can usually be found in each city. What varies between cities and countries is the size, variety, and location of the markets. The one in Leiden is unique in many ways because it floats on top of the city’s oldest canal.
There are only a few floating Christmas markets in Europe, and some say that the Leiden market is the best. The cozy attraction boasts nearly 90 stalls that sell various foods, warm drinks, and handcrafted items. You’ll also find a floating ice rink and a small stage with around-the-clock performances.
