Ski trips are most people's favorite winter vacations because of the mix of fun and relax: all European major skiing destinations offer ski slopes running through breathtaking landscapes and dreamy resorts for your after-ski relax.

Winter European getaways: Christmas markets and more

You don't have to be a sports fan to get the best out of your winter travel experience. From November to the beginning of the new year many European cities host Christmas markets, a very nice way to get straight into the festive atmosphere and, maybe, find a last minute present idea. Since Germany is the country where the most famous markets take place, why not to plan a German Christmas market tour? It just takes a bus from Cologne to Nuremberg and another one from Nuremberg to Munich to join the Christmas festive spirit. If you are not up for a tour and prefer to choose just one destination, we really recommend visiting Strasbourg: its Christmas market is the oldest in Europe and one of the most fascinating.
Looking for something more relaxing? Book a flight to Budapest and try its open-air thermal baths, or go from Florence to Sienna by train and choose one of the natural thermal baths in Val D'Orcia.

European capital cities

Milion fairy lights for your winter holiday

Every time of the year is great if you want to visit an European capital so why do we recommend to travel in Europe during the wintertime? During this time of the year all major cities in Europe "dress up" for the holidays and the main streets are decorated with colorful lights and cheerful Christmas trees. Among the cities with the best Christmas atmosphere there are London -don't miss a walk in Oxford Street- and Paris -even the tour Eiffel gets a Christmas makeover. Can't choose between the two? Just don't! You can choose between booking a train through the Eurotunnel or a coach from Paris to London and make your tour around Europe unforgettable.
We also recommend a trip from Berlin to Prague: during wintertime, the Prague Castle, situated on the top of a hill and surrounded by the old town center, gives the whole city a fairy-tale atmosphere.
