Poznań Christmas market among the best in Europe
The Poznań Christmas Market received recognition from the European Best Destinations . It was the only candidate from Poland to be nominated in the European Best Christmas Markets competition. Twenty cities from across Europe are competing. You can vote until 7 December 2023.
Poznań is the only Polish candidate this year to have been nominated for the competition for the European Best Christmas Market. 20 cities are competing: Poznan, Prague, Brussels, Vienna, Budapest, London, Manchester, Montbeliard, Dresden, Riga, Edinburgh, Metz, Birmingham, Trier, Bruges, Saranda, Krajowa, Asti-Govone, Madeira and Valkenburg.
The distinctions awarded by European Best Destinations are not only of prestige or image significance. They also have a significant impact on the development of tourism in the nominated and awarded cities. The organisation has been promoting culture and tourism since 2009, running the most visited tourism website in Europe and organising competitions.
It is worth to remind that Poznań has already been awarded twice in the European Best Christmas Markets competition. In 2019, it came sixth thanks to the votes of internet users. And in 2020, as high as third - then, in the year of the COVID-19 pandemic, the most interesting Christmas markets to visit in 2021 were selected.
The main contender for the award this year is the Christmas Market at the Poznań International Fair. However, it is worth adding that the strength of Poznań is the whole "package" of winter events under the brand "Bethlehem Poznań". These include the Christmas Fair on Wolności Square, which has been organised for almost a decade (it will last until 7 January 2024), and the unique POZnan Ice Festival, the International Ice Sculpture Festival. The latter will take place on Święty Marcin Street on the weekend of 8-10 December 2023.
Thanks to these initiatives, Poznań can offer visitors and tourists unique winter attractions and a festive atmosphere appreciated by visitors from all over the world. That is why we invite you to visit Poznań and vote for the only Polish candidate. The whole thing will only take a few seconds. Details at europeanbestdestinations.com/christmas-markets. You can vote until 7 December 2023. You can cast your vote once every 24 hours.
