The holidays are fast approaching, but there is still time to plan a Christmas or New Year’s escape. We suggest a trip to central Europe, where the festive spirit is in the air… and often, so is falling snow. These are our seven reasons to visit central Europe over the holidays.
Prague, Vienna, and Munich are just some of the cities famous for their Christmas markets. In Budapest it is common to stumble upon a different market at every turn. Read more about the magical Christmas markets of Europe here.
Central Europe is a winter wonderland of activities. Ice skate in historic squares, take a horse-drawn sleigh ride through a forest, and ski in the mountains; there are many winter wonderland activities to choose from in this region of Europe.
Central Europe has the largest collection of UNESCO World Heritage Sites in one area. The town of Kutna Hora in the Czech Republic is a treasure of medieval, Gothic, and Baroque architecture. Budapest’s Buda Castle District is filled with ancient relics, a castle, and churches.
