Christmas is here, bringing with it family gatherings, shopping, lights, color, and travel. Many people take advantage of the holidays during this time of the year to visit other places, explore new places, and experience a Christmas culture different from yours. And there’s no need to go too far to find perfect Christmas destinations. Film-like places where you can welcome Santa Claus or bid farewell the New Year’s Eve.
Today, we are proud to bring you four cities in the European continent that are ideal for spending these special holidays.
Spending New Year’s Eve on the banks of the Thames with the London Eye in the background is something every human should experience at least once in their lifetime. The hustle and bustle of the English capital during Christmas is a stimulus for the senses. Camden Market, Notting Hill, Piccadilly Circus are some of the must-visit places. Both adults and children will find their favorite spots to enjoy a very special trip.
If Budapest is already one of the most beautiful cities in the old continent, imagine it being decorated to welcome Christmas. Its dazzling architecture, bathed by the majesty of the Danube, exerts an irresistible charm over the Hungarian city. If it was in your plans to visit, this is the best time. Take a ride on the Buda Castle Funicular and be amazed, marvel at buildings like the Parliament, and yes, take a cruise on the most famous river in Europe.
Few cities have as much magic as Vienna, a city that exudes art from every corner, an exuberant place where the old and the modern coexist. Being the birthplace of classical music only strengthens the argument that we are facing a unique city. The little ones will have two historical incentives in the Austrian capital, namely the world’s oldest zoo and ferris wheel. Good pastries and the most dazzling baroque palaces complete its offerings.
The “City of a Hundred Spires” offers you a double journey, as a simple stroll through the historic center will quickly transport you to another era. Or eras. Immerse yourself in legend, color, and architectural beauty in palaces, churches, or gardens. We can’t think of a better setting for these days. In the heart of the Czech capital, the Old Town Square hosts the largest Christmas market in the country and one of the most impressive you will ever seen.
After these four recommendations, all that’s left is to wish you…
Have a nice trip and Merry Christmas!
