Crisp air, crackling fire places and sipping on mulled wine or creamy hot chocolates; nothing says hello quiet like a European Winter. The cold season gives old sights an entirely new feel from the festive feeling of drinking mulled wine in a German Christmas market to the the sometimes-melancholy atmosphere of Parisian streets in the winter. Plus, the off-season can mean greater value, less people, and more opportunity to get up close and personal with a city, a mood or a place. Add a dash of snow in the higher altitudes for good measure, and you’ll experience an entirely new white wonderland. Europe in Winter? We love it.
