Accessible getaways abroad: Accessible Christmas Markets

Is there anything better to get you in a festive mood than a Christmas market? They bring together everything that is best about the time of the year. Great food and drink, local handicrafts and a warm atmosphere. And because they are often outside, they are one of the most accessible activities you can enjoy this time of year.
