6 Destinations on Christmas in Europe

Tirol

Tirol is actually a federal state of Austria and it’s divided to 2 parts: Northern Tirol and Eastern Tirol. On Christmas you will find there Christmas markets, and you can visit the hot springs of Bad Hofgastein, you will find there hotels where you can stay.

So you have Christmas markets, exhibitions, ski and spa.

Switzerland

Switzerland is beautiful on Christmas. You can visit ski sites or visit little towns that look like fairy  tales. Go to taste a good chocolate and enjoy Christmas spirit. Premiumswitzerland nominated some places to visit in Switzerland on Christmas, and on the first place this site nominated Montreux as the best place in Switzerland to visit on Christmas. Enjoy the Video on YouTube. Oh and you can visit the site: http://www.montreuxnoel.com.

Strasbourg

Strasbourg is located in France, and it’s very close to the border with Germany. Some say that it’s the capital of Christmas. You will find there especially Christmas markets, Christmas shows and guided tours. But I think that guided tours are not for us :). Here you will find a relevant link for you: http://noel.strasbourg.eu/en.

Praha

Prague is very beautiful on Christmas. In Prague you have lots of stuff to do on Christmas, you can visit the Christmas markets, you can visit the theaters and watch operas or other shows. You can visit the great breweries and pubs, you can visit the Václavské náměstí, the old town square, you can take cruises on the river. By the way I recommend the Golden Tiger, it’s a great pub and it’s famous because celebrities visited that place.
