You are a planning to travel to Barcelona or Malmö in the Advent season? Maybe you are already in one of these cities? Then, enjoy the Christmas time and don’t miss the beautiful Christmas markets and other events.

Since 27st of November, the streets of Barcelona are enlightened beautifully, the Christmas spirit is everywhere in the air. You can find different Christmas markets which differ from each other. The oldest market and most famous one in the Spanish capital is Fira de Santa Llúcia, which sets up its stalls in front of the Cathedral. The market’s biggest draw: all the different objects you can buy to create the nativity scene, such as figures, moss, cribs, fountains and the curious caganer. There are further markets worth visiting: among others Fira de Nadal a la Sagrada Familia and Fira de Placa Sants. Here you can find more information about what to do during Christmas time in Barcelona.

In Malmö likewise, the streets are illuminated in a wonderful way and you can feel the Christmas atmosphere everywhere. There are many different Christmas markets which are worth a visit. At Mitt Möllans Christmas market you can find unique and locally produced jewelry, art, design and clothes. The Farmer’s Christmas market at Drottningtorget is the perfect choice for all those looking for small-scale, ecological and locally grown produce. An impressive happening in Malmö: On 13 December, Malmö’s Lucia procession takes place in several locations around town. In churches and entertainment venues you can listen to various kinds of live music. More about activities during Christmas time in Malmö here.
