Christmas Market 2013

Travelling to Christmas market in Wroclaw this year with my sisters. My mother may also join us. At age 81 she loves to travel but has slowed down walking a lot in the past 12 months. We are looking for a central hotel near the markets and close to shopping areas. Can you suggest either a hotel or an area/street. Any suggestions of bar/restaurants would also be appreciated. Finally any suggestions on Polish clothes chain?

Search for hotels near the Main/Market Square (Rynek). I don't know your budget but check Qubus, Art Hotel, Patio, Sofitel, Mercure... all of them are very close to the Main Square where the Christmas market takes place. Check websites like booking.com - they have a map clearly showing all hotel locations.

There are many restaurants on the Market Square so that's not a problem. Most of them are on the ground level so it'll be easy for your mother to walk into.

Polish clothes chains? Try Galeria Dominikańska shopping mall (5 mins from the Square, the same building as Mercure hotel), brands: Reserved and MOHITO (smart casual), Cropp Town, House, Big Star (jeans, t-shirts etc.) Wólczanka (good and inexpensive shirts), Ochnik (good quality leather). If you have a chance check shoes in Ryłko, Wojas and Badura.

The official information is: Fri 22.11 - Sun 22.12.2013 but in my opinion the most is going on in first two weeks of December. Fair site: www.jarmarkbozonarodzeniowy.com/?lang=en.

Thanks for that. We are going to be staying at the Puro hotel close to the square....8th December through 11th December...and we cannot wait!! The market looks great...perhaps a dusting of snow for the finishing touches? Maybe....

Have been to Wroclaw twice now for the Christmas Market and going again in Dec. It's lovely but bitterly cold!! Need a jug or 2 of Mulled wine to warm you up !

Always stayed in an apartment on Rynek which is the main Market Square and used AS Apart.com. Have stayed in the Apartment Poetic (lovely but due to very open stairway was a bit noisy) and the Tycjan Apartment which is highly recommended. Trying the Under the Golden Cup apartment this year !

Most hotels are room only so apartment gives you more freedom and space.

Eating out is cheap and loads of restaurants around the square itself which are very reasonable. A good place for breakfast is a place (can't remember name) on the far side of the Flower square adjoining the Market Square. The small polish restaurants found down the side streets (ask for directions in Tourist Information on the Market Square) are extremely cheap and recommended.

You'll Love it !

There usually are some concerts, mainly on December 6th (the so-called "Mikołajki" - Santa Claus day). Those concerts are usually "Christmas-oriented" so some folk music, Xmas carols and local performers. But it's too soon to tell how it will look like this year. All we know is that the market will start on November 22nd and will last to December 22nd. We will know more in the first week of November, I guess.
