Brno Christmas Market 2018 Czech Republic
November 23, 2018 - December 28, 2018
The Czech Republic is not all about Prague, especially at Christmas time. The Brno Christmas Market takes place in the country’s second city from 23 November.
The festival has two centres. The first is around Freedom Square which has a very modern vibe, focusing on virtual reality displays as well as live gigs and even a designer market. Sample special city drinks from a white cupola while resting at the Winter Bar.
Whereas the Dominican Square has a far more traditional take to proceedings and is ideal for families. And expect a musical tone to be adopted throughout – after all Brno is a UNESCO Creative City of Music.
There is also a Cabbage Market, as well as the usual retailers of handicrafts and purveyors of Moravian delicacies and punch and Christmas treats.
The festival has a policy of using recyclable cups which you can buy from individual stores and then swap for a clean one at a following store. At the end of the fair you can take the cup home with you as a memento or return it to reclaim your deposit. There are also souvenir mugs.
