Ultimate Prague Christmas Markets Guide


When is the Prague Christmas Market?

The view over the most popular Christmas Market in Prague (Old Town Christmas Market).

Like many European cities, the Prague Christmas market experience has proven to be so popular in recent years that more and more markets are popping up across the city year on year.

We’ve detailed the best of those markets below, but just be aware that each has its own individual opening and closing times.

Most of the markets are in business by the 30th of November, opening in time to count down each day of the Advent season.

Insiders Tip: All markets are free to enter.

Most of the markets actually stay open beyond Christmas day itself, and every Prague Christmas Market will generally be open until the first week of January, as they also love to celebrate the New Year in Czechia.

Some of the markets are increasingly beginning to open up earlier than the 30th of November too, and some will be open as early as the second weekend in November.

When they are open, every Prague Christmas market will be open from morning until evening, seven days a week.


9 Best Christmas Markets in Prague to Visit


1. Old Town Square Christmas Market

The stunning Old Town Square Christmas Market.

The Old Town Square Christmas Market is the most famous and well known Prague Christmas Market.

It’s the most central market in the city, and its popularity ensures that it’s always going to be busy, right through the Christmas season.

But despite the crowds, you couldn’t ask for a better market to visit, and the central locations mean that it’s both easy to find, and it’s surrounded by the best of Prague’s historic buildings and sights within the heart of the Old Town. 

Insiders Tip: The markets are the slowest on Mondays-Tuesdays and Thursdays. 

The Old Town Square Christmas Market is stacked full of rustic wooden stalls and small chalets, all of them brimming with Christmas goods, and serving up great food and drink.

There’s an enormous Christmas tree in the square, and at the start of the festive season, you can even watch the extravagant lighting of the tree ceremony, which formally opens this Prague Christmas Market for everyone to enjoy.

We found lass people at the Wenceslas Square Christmas Markets stands.

Equally as popular as the Old Town Square Market, is the Wenceslas Square Christmas Market, which is actually found just a short walk away from its nearby neighbor in the Old Town.

Most tourists then will be able to easily visit both markets during their stay in the city, even they just have a day or two. 

The Wenceslas Christmas Market is just as busy and bustling, but it’s a great place to really soak up the festive atmosphere.

Insiders Tip: The Christmas tree in Wenceslas Square gets lit nightly at 5 P.M.

Here you’ll find plenty of gingerbread and mulled wine to enjoy, as well as Christmas songs and decorations. It’s a great mix of tradition and tourism, and a wonderful Prague Christmas Market to visit.

  • Dates: November 28 to January 6

3. Prague Castle Christmas Market

The Prague Castle’s Christmas tree is stunning.

Prague castle is one of the most important landmarks in the city, and it’s a must-visit attraction for anyone exploring the Czech capital for the first time.

This historic castle dates back over one thousand years, although its look and architecture have changed considerably over the centuries. Today, the castle is the seat of the President of Czechia.

Insiders Tip: We found this the best place to eat since it was mostly food stalls offering different eats that weren’t found at the other markets.

Prague castle is also home to a wonderful Christmas market during the holiday season, and the market starts in November and only ends in January.

St George’s Square in front of the castle becomes a hive of festive activity as market stalls are set up, with the castle as the most spectacular background in the city.

  • Important Events: Christmas Concerts Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sundays – Mikulas Day – New Year’s Eve Fireworks

Silent night, holy night, All is calm, all is bright.

If you’re looking for a smaller, perhaps more intimate market to visit, then take a trip to Republic Square (Náměstí Republiky Christmas Market), where you can find a fantastic Prague Christmas Market.

Republic Square is also found within the Old Town, but it’s not quite so well known a stop on the tourist trail.

Insiders Tip: The busy times at the markets are between 4 P.M to 8 P.M. 

That does mean that it’s easy to add the square onto your Prague Christmas Market itinerary, and you’ll be glad that you did because this market is best known for its food.

If you’re hungry, then Republic Square Christmas Market is the place to be, because here you’ll find all sorts of Czech culinary delights, from festive gingerbread to steaming hot bread bowls full of goulash.

If you want to get away from the crowded Old Town square, this place is
perfect for you.

Another smaller market to enjoy, once you’ve experienced the bigger, more touristy markets in Prague, is found at the Peace Square. 

Peace Square is found outside of the Old Town, so that means that you’ll not only be exploring a lesser-known part of Prague but that you’ll be escaping the tourist crowds too.

You’ll want to take a tram here from the Old Town – another great local experience in itself – or it’s a thirty-minute stroll from the Old Town Square. 

Peace Square (Náměstí Míru) Christmas Market is delightful, and you’ll find that you have all the authentic and traditional elements of a Prague Christmas market, but you’ll find that it’s primarily locals and a few intrepid tourists that visit.

Listen to Czech Christmas songs, indulge in chimney cakes or gingerbread, and try a few local beers at the Peace Square Christmas Market.

  • Location: Peace Square Náměstí Míru, 120 00 Vinohrady, Czechia
  • Dates: November 26 to December 24

Trdelnik (Chimney Cake) is a must try when visiting Prague.

This isn’t one of the most popular Christmas Markets in Prague, but we feel it is one of the best and one you simply cannot miss. Most tourists just walk on by this Christmas market without even knowing it is there.

The Kampa Island Christmas Market is located just a short stroll across the Charles Bridge. On the left-hand side if you are walking to the Lesser Town Bridge tower end of the Charles Bridge.

This quite local market is charming with amazing views of the Vltava River in the Background.

Here you can enjoy the sights and sounds without all those tourists. Grab a hot chocolate or grog to sip on while you browse all of the stalls.

Here you can find the normal items that most of the Christmas Markets have along with some local gems like the artisan stalls that have a unique verity of straw ornaments, wooden toys, glass figurines and clothing.

  • Location: Kampa Island Mala Strana 118 00 Prague 1 Czechia
  • Dates: November 30 to December 29
  • Times: 10:00 A.M to 9:00 P.M

If you are looking for a Christmas Market that has a local feeling, we suggest you check out the smallest one in Prague, the Tylovo Náměstí Christmas Market.

This little Christmas Market with about 20 stalls that nestled in a lesser busy section of Prague and are just simply charming with way fewer people.

If you’re looking to shop without pushing your way through large crowds this is the place for you.

This is one of the farthest markets in Prague that we are recommending travelers to visit, but it is also one of the most popular farmer’s market areas during most of the year.

During the holiday season, Jiřího z Poděbrad Market is transformed into a festive Christmas Market, so it has to be on anyone’s must-visit list.

It’s also a great market to visit if you are traveling with kids. It’s less crowded and a little more family-oriented.

So many great handmade items.

This is one of Prague’s largest Christmas Markets but it’s not as well-known to tourists since it is a bit off the beaten path.

It is also one of the only Christmas Markets that charges an admission fee. But don’t let that discourage you from visiting, it will be worth it.

The Výstavište Holešovice Christmas Market is more like a fair within a conversion center. Its located on the Holešovice Exhibition Grounds.

This is one of the best markets to visit if the weather isn’t very nice, since its both indoors and outdoors.

They do a good job of creating a magical atmosphere with live entertainment for both kids and adults throughout the day. They even do a procession of Krampus devils that you cannot miss out on.

Best Food and Drink to Try at the Prague Christmas Markets

Enjoying a cup of Svarak (Hot Wine).

Prague is highly regarded by travelers for its culinary scene, and the city is known for its classic Czech and Central European staples.

It’s cold in Prague in November and December, bitterly cold, but the Czech food is there to help.

Savory Classics

Local dishes are designed to keep you warm and to help you through the cold winters that the country endures every year, and you can indulge in hearty, warm dishes such as Goulash to keep you from freezing.

The Goulash is often served in a huge bread bowl, and the portion sizes will be huge at the Prague Christmas Market.

Insiders Tip: If you are a foodie you must head to the Prague castle Christmas market, we found different food offered there then at the other markets in town.

This is a meaty stew, mixed with vegetables and served as a thick soup that’s guaranteed to fight off the winter chill.

As well as this though, you can try local sausages such as Klobasy, potato pancakes known as Bramboraky and Sunka, a spit-roasted local ham.

Sweet Treats & Drinks

You can truly eat your way around Prague’s Christmas Markets.

Non-savory festive delights include gingerbread, which you’ll smell baking around the city over Christmas, and the iconic chimney cakes, which you’ll see being turned and cooked on many market stalls before they are covered in chocolate, cinnamon, and sugar.  

Insiders Tip: Food and drink’s at the Christmas Markets are as expensive as eating at a sit-down restaurant.

No trip to Prague is complete without trying some of the local brews, and as well as hot chocolate and mulled wines, you’ll be able to indulge in plenty of delicious Czech beers.

Honey Wine, or Czech Mead, is another popular drink that makes an appearance at Christmas time.

The handmade items in the Old Town Square Christmas Market are stunning!

Best Places to Stay for Touring Markets


Hotels in Prague during the Christmas Markets.
You can feel the magic of throughout all of Prague.

The Christmas markets in Prague are simply magical however what adds to that magic is being based in a place that is festive. After all, that’s why you are exploring Europe at this time of the year.

There are a few factors that don’t normally apply when visiting Prague during another season.

One factor is the location to the markets, this is key since it is cold out and you don’t want to have to go a long way to enjoy the magic.

Two is the atmosphere offered at the hotel, I don’t know about you, but we want a place that also celebrates this festive season. This fuels the overall experience.

Keep in mind Christmas season is a busy time of the year for many hotels in Prague, so it is best to book way in advance.

If you don’t, you’ll probably end up way outside the Christmas Market areas in a haunted scrooge house making your experience not very magical.

Below we are laying out some of our favorite properties and locations for Christmas Market season. If you’re looking for more in-depth information, check out Where to Stay in Prague: Best Districts & Hotels.

Key Tips & Advice for the Christmas Markets


Old Town Square Christmas Market in Prague in the daytime.
Daytime at the Old Time Square Christmas Market.
  • Cash is king! Exchange your money into Crown or withdraw it before you get there. It is almost impossible to pay in Euros or with a Credit Card at the Christmas Markets.
  • The Christmas Markets are not the place to haggle, the prices are what they are so don’t try to get a better deal.
  • Spend your money at the local handicraft stalls, this helps keeps the money you are spending locally. Many of the local stalls have signed up stating they are a small business. You’ll easily notice the larger corporated stalls.
  • Some of the prices are based on grams, especially food like ham. This can add up quickly and throw you off.
  • Don’t touch unless you are going to buy it.
  • Christmas shops are there to sell, not to be photographed. So be respectful, don’t take photos of workers without asking and for those Instagrammers don’t take up a shop for a photoshoot. Some shops don’t want their items photographed at all, keep this in mind.
  • Wrap up warm when you’re visiting the Prague Christmas Market because it can get very, very cold in the city during winter. Take extra layers, and be prepared to be chilly!
  • Prague is an increasingly busy city, and the tourist numbers don’t drop because of the cold. Over Christmas tourism actually increases, and so you’ll want to be booking your hotels and flights in advance to get the best deals for your visit to the Prague Christmas Market. 
  • Don’t just stick to the two major Christmas Markets in the center of the Old Town. As convenient and popular as they are, you can always find a more local experience further away from the tourist center. 
  • Don’t just visit the Christmas Markets at night, visit them during the day also.
  • Don’t leave any of the Christmas areas with alcohol in your cup. Czech law prohibits open containers and it is forbidden.
  • Don’t miss out on the lighting up of the lanterns at the Charles Bridge. During December the Charles Bridge is decked out with gas lanterns. Works light the lanterns nightly between 16:00-16:15 dressed in historical clothing.
  • Take advantage of any bathrooms you find, most you will have to pay for if they are open to the public.
  • Keep your personal items close to you, the Christmas markets are a prime place for pickpocketers. Wallets walk away, phones, cameras, and even backpacks are prime items during this time of the year.
  • If you are exploring the Christmas Markets in Prague as a couple or a group it is always best to pick a landmark to meet in case you get separated.
