    I am very disappointed that the Christmas Markets will not be open until December 3rd this year. Last year they opened on November 20th 2015. Our company are holding their Annual conference in Prague this year and we intentionally booked from the 25th – 27th November 2016 so that we could attend the Christmas markets. Can you please let me know why the length of the Markets has been shortened?

      I don’t really know, but if I remember they only opened November 28th last year as well, at least the one on the main square. If you are lucky then there might be some markets that will open earlier, but these dates are the official ones. Don’t know more than that!

      Just wanted to update this and tell you that the Christmas markets will open on November 26th and not on December 3rd. So, you will get to taste some mulled wine and buy some souvenirs still. Enjoy your stay!
