We invite you on an unforgettable journey, one that will fill your heart with warmth and give you true holiday spirit.  Enjoy the feeling of an "Old World Christmas".  The European Christmas Markets have been celebrated for hundreds of years and still today, transform town squares and narrow streets into magical wonderlands.  The Christmas Markets are filled with unique decorative and edible symbols of the season, as well as wonderful cultural events.  Listen to the carolers singing in front of town hall.  Savor the smells of gingerbread, fruitcake, grilled sausages and seasonal beverages.  Visit the many special Christmas Markets of Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France, Czech Republic and Scandinavia.  See the wonderful decorations, listen to the beautiful Advent concerts and visit many special Christmas exhibits.  Take home unique gifts of handcrafted ornaments, nutcrackers, and tinsel angels.  I will share with you places where I have lived, visited and grown to love.   



Destinations by Dixon LLC has taken clients, for over 25 years, to the Christmas Markets of Europe & Scandinavia.  Travelers absolutely love the magical season of Advent, the lovely Christmas Markets in the cities, towns & villages, the special concerts and exhibits and of course all of the seasonal food and beverages.  I have been blessed to be able to share these experiences of this special time of the year with many clients.

I want to inspire you to experience a most wonderful time of the year; Advent in Europe.  In 2019, I will share with you (via my Facebook page) the magical Christmas Markets of Stuttgart, Ludwigsburg & Esslingen in Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany.  My journey continues to Basel, Switzerland with a stop in the beautiful town of Gegenbach located between the western edge of the Black Forest and the vineyards of the Kinzig Valley.  The Advent season is especially charming and quaint in Basel during this special season of the year.  Basel's ideal location at the corner of France, Germany and Switzerland and on the Rhine River makes it a must see for either a pre or post river cruise stay or visit to Switzerland.
