Why not get into the festive spirit with your date and head over to one of the world famous Christmas markets, it’s a great alternative to the usual dating rendezvous!
Soak up the atmosphere of a truly international event and treat your date to some mouthwatering delicacies from all over Europe. Anything from Dutch mini pancakes, to Hungarian goulash to Spanish paella to French profiteroles. Relax with a hot chocolate, German or Spanish beer, or French wine.
The markets also include gifts, crafts, jewellery, clothes and much more so there really is something to suit everyone and it’s enough of a distraction for you both to feel less self-conscious about being on a first or second date.
Please remember that flirting with the stall holder is a no-no and the mulled wine is strong so go easy on it!
