Five-star Riga break in the city's charismatic Old Town with Christmas market dates - includes all travel, airport lounge access, breakfast, plus spa access
Scooping the title of European Capital of Culture a few of years ago has done wonders for romantic Riga, but this art-rich city has been on the culture-lovers' radar for centuries, mostly for the magnificent UNESCO-listed Old Town and Art Nouveau architecture that surrounds the five-star Grand Hotel Kempinski Riga.
Originally built in the 19th century, Grand Hotel Kempinski Riga is situated in the heart of the Latvian capital, just opposite the legendary National Opera House and right by the entrance to the town’s historic centre - meaning all the main tourist attractions are within easy walking distance. Inside the hotel, discover plenty of creature comforts in your luxe room. You can enjoy all-day-dining at the hotel's contemporary restaurant, serving up fine international fare and relax to the max in Kempinski The Spa, featuring a tranquil lounger-lined swimming pool, bio-sauna and state-of-the-art fitness centre. It's no surprise that Grand Hotel Kempinski Riga has snagged a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.
Explore the biggest metropolis the Baltics has to offer and get lost between the charismatic narrow streets of the Old Town, whilst taking in the city's stunning range of architectural delights. Squeeze down Rozena Street - the narrowest street of the capital - and make sure to explore some of the forward-thinking, experimental restaurants that Riga is becoming renowned for.
Good to know
Visit the city in all its festive splendour, with markets in Doma laukums and Līvu laukums squares, as well as in Esplenāde Park (which has the added attraction of a cute “village” populated by real rabbits). Lovely gifts include hand-knitted shawls, mittens and socks, aromatic candles, artisanal spoons and other woodwork. There are also local delicacies, like grey peas and bacon to try. Riga's Christmas markets run from 1 December 2018 to 6 January 2019. For more information click here.
Our holidays come with airport lounge access at selected airports to make the most of pre-flight perks, from fast-track security, a bar service and complimentary hot and cold food to charging points, newspapers, Wi-Fi access and more.
