We continue to travel mentally, this time choosing cities in Europe that τους go to winter – when we do not have a pandemic!
The Austrian capital was voted the best city in Europe at this year’s Reader’s Choice Awards by Condé Nast Traveler, a title that is true despite the season. In winter, however, the city takes on another dimension, with the simultaneous transmission of opera outdoors where people watch even if it is cold, with chocolate bars, classical music concerts and the spectacle of Schönbrunn Palace and St. Paul’s Church. Charles to be covered by snow.
Bergen has everything an idyllic Scandinavian village needs: colorful wooden buildings, a picturesque harbor and great views of the skyline. The place is definitely beautiful in the summer, but during the winter months there is also the very important extra: one can see the Northern Lights in the peak season.
Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Amsterdam is magical during the holidays, with decorations and celebrations lasting throughout December. In the deep winter, however, the temperatures drop, the city calms down and the view of the canals, as well as the walks become easier and safer. In addition, Dutch cuisine, with bread and potatoes, is suitable for winter.
Tallinn, this fairytale city, is overflowing with charm, thanks to its magnificent castles and its ideal location on the Baltic. The city is famous for one of the most well-preserved historical centers in Europe, with many medieval churches, which is under the protection of Unesco. The view of the city from Toompea castle is unreal every season, but with the winter snow, everything seems more fairytale.
The most well-preserved medieval city in Europe is also one of the most charming on the continent, especially at Christmas. Its trees are decorated with lights and compose a wonderful image with its narrow cobbled streets. There is also the historic Craenenburg Café for anyone who wants genuine Belgian chocolate.
We tell you with absolute certainty that Budapest is another city in winter. The Hungarian Parliament is surrounded by ice on the Danube and creates a very winter spectacle, which after enjoying, one can relax in the majestic cafes of the city, stroll in the museums or relax in the famous spas.
Prague, Czech Republic
Perhaps the most suitable city in winter, with snow covering the bridge of Charles and the tops of the churches of the Old Town. There are also some of the best Christmas markets (at least outside of Germany), where everyone indulges in a bit of Trdelník – something like toast – and mulled wine.
