Combine the festive fun with a comfortable stay with Mercure
Christmas is coming. Why not celebrate the most wonderful time of the year with a trip to one of Europe’s festive hotspots? With a variety of stylish and comfortable hotels across the region, Mercure has something for everyone on Santa’s list – whether naughty or nice!
Deck the halls in Edinburgh
Edinburgh's Christmas is a spectacular season of festive entertainment for the whole family. In addition to the market, you can venture through a Christmas tree maze, sing along at a nativity carol concert and get up close and personal with the big man himself at Santa’s Grotto. For a more authentic experience, pick up some local produce at the Scottish Market in West George Street. Mercure Edinburgh City Princes Street Hotel sits conveniently between the two, and the perfect base for a festive break.
Have some fun in the frost in Amsterdam
Amsterdam’s Winter Festival provides an impressive lineup of happenings for locals and visitors to enjoy - with every winter activity imaginable including skiing, curling to an ice bar carved from 60 tonnes of natural ice. Mercure Amsterdam City Hotel is a perfect hub to start the fun and the perfect place to slip out of those thermals for a nightcap after hours.
Dream of a White Christmas in London
London is dotted with Christmas markets of all shapes and sizes throughout the holiday season, from Hyde Park’s colossal Winter Wonderland to cosy local haunts such as Bankside’s Christmas by the River. To soak up the season like a Londoner, take a trip to the West End and marvel at the shimmering Christmas lights that illuminate the city streets. Find your home away from home this Christmas at one of Mercure’s many locally inspired hotels in the capital.
