Christmas in Thessaloniki

Christmas is indeed the most wonderful time of the year, and if you are spending your Christmas holidays in Thessaloniki you are most likely to feel that!

Thessaloniki is a great destination throughout the year: either in spring and summer for a walk along the seaside, or in autumn and winter for cozy afternoons with friends at one of the city’s numerous cafes (or for evenings at taverns, or nights at bars – the possibilities are endless).

At Christmas, however, Thessaloniki gets all festive and beautiful! If you are travelling with children, they will absolutely adore the Christmas atmosphere, and you will wish Christmas lasted longer.

To begin with, Asterocosmos at TIF-HELEXPO should be first on your list. Several games, rides, activities, workshops, ice-skating rinks and mischievous elves will make you feel like a child again. Your children will absolutely love it!

Agias Sofias street, which was only recently pedestrianized, is the perfect place to catch your breath between all the shopping frenzy. At the middle of Tsimiski street and the city’s heart, the children will enjoy a carousel or train ride while you get a little bit of rest.

Extra Tip: Visit Blé and try melomakarona, a Greek Christmas delicacy you will never forget!

Aristotelous square is one of Thessaloniki’s most famous landmarks and also the most popular Christmas destination. Fully decorated, this spot has been the center of Christmas celebrations for many years now. Pass by on Christmas day and you’ll most probably listen to some great Greek music, live. Enjoy!
