Find out the 15 Coronavirus-Safest Christmas Markets in Europe

Every year specialized websites, news portals and tourism organizations share lists of best winter destinations

The European Best Destinations (EBD) is an organization notorious for creating those ranks, and they just released a list of coronavirus-safest Christmas destinations.

This year, due to the pandemic, the selection criteria for the best advent included health and sanitary rules.

The list has been built based on the following: number of Covid-19 cases per million inhabitants, number of hospital beds per inhabitant, proximity of airports, establishment of sanitary measures, hygiene charts in hotels, shops, restaurants, public transport and public places, provision of hydroalcoholic gels, masks and, last but not least, circulation routes inside the Christmas markets.  

What do the selected places have in common? They are located in countries that were less affected by the disease.

If you have the opportunity to go to any of those markets listed, you will see vendors wearing protective masks or visors, you will pay using contactless payment methods and there will be signposted routes stopping visitors from crossing paths.
