We’re getting in the festive spirit this morning and looking for the world’s best Christmas trees. There are quite a few that fit the bill, but these are just a few of our favourites!
Osaka – Japan
Their remarkable Christmas tree is in the Guiness Book of Records for most lights on an artificial Christmas tree, and holds a whopping 550,000. You wouldn’t want to be the maintenance man when one of those goes out!
Caserta – Italy
It’s easy to see why we think this Christmas tree is pretty spectacular. Aglow with beautiful twinkling fairy lights and traditional Christmas decorations, it is hard not to get that festive feeling when you look at it.
Rockefeller Centre – New York
This tree has always been one of our favourites, and it is a very recognisable tree as it features on many movies such as Home Alone 2 and Miracle on 34th Street. It has become an icon for New York City, especially during Christmas time.
York – UK
We are very lucky to be based in York, which is a beautiful city all year round, but truly stunning at Christmas time. There are a few trees within in the city centre worth mentioning, such as the bauble tree outside Fenwicks. But this one is my favourite; the traditional Christmas tree on St Helen’s square.
Gendarmenmarkt – Berlin
This is a truly gorgeous tree, and it’s twinkling lights combined with the warmth of the Gendarmenmarkt Christmas market, and smell of the festive treats, will certainly get you in the festive mood. Plätzchen, anyone?
Strasbourg – France
December in Strasbourg means, above all, the immense Christmas market. Christkindelsmärik (market of the Child Jesus) replaced the market of Saint Nicholas and is the oldest Christmas market in France! Fondly known as the “Capital of Chrismas”, Strasbourg take great pride in their tree!
We could talk about Christmas trees all day, and obviously we can’t included all of our favourites. If you feel there are better ones out there, please get in touch to let us know!
