BRITS are being warned of the “threat of terrorism” at a number of Christmas Market destinations.
The Foreign Office have updated their travel advice for countries including Germany, France and Spain as the festive season approaches.
Countries such as Denmark, Sweden and the Netherlands are also popular this time of year due to the festivities throughout the cities.
However, the government has warned Brits to stay vigilant due to the potential risks.
The advice states: “There is a general threat from terrorism.
“There may be increased security in place over the festive period, including at Christmas markets and other major events that might attract large crowds.
“You should remain vigilant and follow the advice of local authorities.”
The travel advice for Spain also warns tourists to remain vigilant during New Year celebrations well, with many flocking to the country for Nochevieja.
A terror attack at a Berlin Christmas market in 2016 left 12 people dead after a stolen lorry was driven through the streets.
In 2018, five people were killed following a terrorist attack at Strasbourg’s Christmas market.
Last Christmas, counter-terror chiefs have warned ISIS lone-wolf supporters may target British Christmas markets with knives or vehicle-ramming attacks.
