Europe

When you think about a trip to Europe, winter might not seem like the ideal season. Isn’t summer better, when it’s warm, and the sun shines all day long?

However, winter offers many advantages. First, fewer people travel so that you will encounter fewer crowds. And second, Europe is diverse enough that you can find destinations for enjoying snow and places where you can escape the cold.

To find out about the best winter destinations in Europe, we have asked fellow travel bloggers to name their favourites. Here is what they consider the best places in Europe that you should visit next winter:…

Germany

One of the reasons I’m looking forward to Christmas is because it means I’ll get to eat lots of cookies. When I was a child, my grandmother would bake Christmas cookies for us, and she had a whole range of traditional German recipes that she used.

These days, I bake my own cookies. Plus, I still get cookies from my mum when I go home for Christmas, and I buy a selection in supermarkets. The packages usually appear in the shelves mid-autumn, and I always grab a bag of gingerbread cookies as soon as they’re available.

If you travel to Germany in December, you have the chance of trying most traditional German Christmas cookies yourself. The selection can feel overwhelming at first, but there’s something for everybody.…

I love Christmas markets.

Every year at the end of November, I get excited about the upcoming Christmas market here in Frankfurt. The lights, the food, going out with friends – there are so many things I love about the market.

If you’re visiting Europe in December, you should visit at least one Christmas market. Which one? Well, that’s up to you. Each of them is unique in their own way and we assure that you’ll have a good time. But to help you choose, we’ve asked fellow travel bloggers to tell us about their favourite European Christmas market.…

Germany

Every year, when the days get shorter, I get excited for Christmas. The Christmas Market in Frankfurt is one of the highlights of this season, and I can’t wait to get out and have a cup of hot Glühwein.

Usually, the month of December means meet-ups with friends and co-workers at the Christmas Market. Plus, we like to go by ourselves a few times, just to enjoy the lights and look at the various handicrafts.

Even though we’ve lived in Frankfurt for a few years already, we discover new things every time we go. Last winter, for example, I found out that you can get amazing grilled salmon at the market. We have also discovered some of the smaller markets, which are all worth visiting.

Germany

It’s Christmas! Well, almost. It’s not far away anymore and when I went to the Christmas market with my co-workers last week, I felt inspired to write about the experience.

As I’m German, I grew up with Christmas markets. When I was a child, I found it strange that our English relatives would come especially for the Christmas markets. Why would they get so excited about such a normal thing?. Then, I grew up and realised that in many countries around the world, there either are no Christmas markets or they’re very different.

If you’re visiting Germany in December, you should visit at least one of them. That’s easy to do as every big city will have one Christmas market (or more).…
