Winter has arrived. Also here in Bratislava the weather outside is colder, days are shorter and some of us are already waiting impatiently for long sunny days. But even those of you who do not like this cold time of the year must admit, there is a special magic atmosphere during winter time.
Magic winter time in Bratislava
One of the most beautiful things – except Christmas itself of course – are the wonderful Christmas Markets.
Our Christmas Market here in Bratislava has already opened this year and over a hundred of stalls will be available until December 22nd. It takes place on Hviezdoslavovo square and Main Square and is open from 10 am till 10 pm. Here you can stroll around and enjoy some traditional hot punch. Aside from the traditional fruity one, you will find dozens of different, interesting and also unusual flavours, like lavender or rose punch.
With a short walking distance of only 5 minutes our Falkensteiner Hotel Bratislava is the perfect choice to stay in during your visit of Slovakia´s capital. Beside the typical ”Welcome Home” atmosphere at Falkensteiner the hotel offers you a special personal benefit during your stay in December: a complimentary voucher for a great traditional punch that you can enjoy while exploring the magic of our local market.
And do not forget to upgrade your stay with us during your weekend stay to enjoy the comfort of our highest room category (senior suite) while paying only 1 night upgrade, 2nd night upgrade is on us.
Beside the wide range of hot and cold drinks, you can choose from many delicious dishes and sweets. The Christmas Market in Bratislava is a paradise of tasty food. Even if you are not hungry but can smell the spices and scents in the air, you will most likely start thinking about what to buy first. Whether you decide for a baked sausage, grilled cheese, traditional ”ciganska” barbecued directly in front of you, potato pancakes, cabbage soup or sweet gingerbread, strudel or ”trdelnik”, you will definitely be satisfied with the choice and never leave market hungry.
While walking the streets of Bratislava you will be amazed by the presented items which are for sale. You can see and buy handmade things made of wood, glass, leather, ceramic, textile and often being sold directly by its producer.
In addition to all of the food, drinks and strolling there is also a varied cultural programme including live performances by many different types of musical groups. While listening the music you can borrow ice skates and go skating on the ice ring on the Hviezdoslavovo square. If you do not feel like ice skating, you can just watch, while enjoying some food or hot beverage.
In the evening everything gets even more magical. The lightened Christmas Tree, the music, the atmosphere. Now we happily invite you to visit us and spend a magic winter time in Bratislava.
