Hotels in Warsaw

From 25th November 2023 to 6th January 2024


The Warsaw Christmas Market is one of the Best Christmas Markets in Poland. At the end of November, next to the Old Town’s defensive walls, colourful stands appear, ushering in a season of winter attractions and entertainment.


The sounds of traditional Christmas carols and the smell of gingerbread cookies encourage us to slow down and do some Christmas shopping. Here you can find hand-decorated baubles, woollen sweaters, caps and scarves as well as regional cuisine. A cup of hot chocolate or mulled wine will warm you up in frosty weather.


The Christmas Market takes place next to the Castle Square, presided over by a Christmas tree that sparkles with thousands of lights. It is recognised as one of the most beautiful trees in Europe. Not far away, the Old Town’s ice rink provides residents and visitors of all ages with a taste of one of childhood’s simple pleasures.

Christmas Illuminations

Warsaw Christmas Market

In December, the streets and squares of Warsaw take on a special charm. Decorated with colourful decorations and fairy-tale figures, in the evenings they shine with thousands of lights. The people of Warsaw – big and small alike – wait impatiently each year for the moment the lights are switched on.


See how beautiful the city looks; take a walk along the Royal Route, see the 30-metre high Christmas tree on Castle Square and the light decorations above the streets of the Old Town. A cup of hot chocolate at Wedel is the perfect way to end the evening.


Royal Garden of Lights

Visit the Royal Residence in Wilanów after dark and see one of the most beautiful gardens in Poland, which at this time of year blooms with thousands of lights. An illuminated tunnel leads to the palace courtyard, from which you can easily get to the King’s Winter Garden. Walk among the shimmering orange trees and take a picture in an illuminated frame against the background of Wilanów Palace. Stop on the palace terrace and look over the baroque garden. It is illuminated by thousands of lights, which during special shows dance to the rhythm of classical music. Carpets of light flowers, which seem to flourish in the Rose Garden, also make an amazing impression.


If you want to visit the court of King Jan III, come on Saturday, Sunday or a holiday. Thanks to the three-dimensional displays of light, video and sound beamed onto the façade of the palace, you will feel like you have been transported back in time to see history hundreds of years ago. A winter evening in Wilanów will definitely remain in your memory for a long time. 

Ice Rink

This is a great way to beat the winter blues. Put your skates on and – more or less smoothly – start dancing on the ice. The first ice rinks in Warsaw open in November. In the winter you will find them at the Palace of Culture and Science, on the Old Town Square and in every district. You can rent skates at almost every rink.
