Amsterdam has its own flare when it comes to the winter season with its own festive atmosphere. Witness the city light up for the winter season during Amsterdam Light Festival as the cold, crisp air hits you. For something exciting, why not ice skate in the canals of Amsterdam?

Budapest can get pretty cold during the winter and snow is more frequent which perfect for those who enjoy the colder weather and who would say no to the city’s world renowed thermal baths?! And Budapest’s architecture is amazing that one must see at least once in their lifetime.


5. Salzburg

If you are looking for something magical, Salzburg is for you. Imagine buildings in baroque architecture, castles and cathedrals covered in snow?! Add Christmas markets to the equation, this might even convince you more to go to Salzburg this winter! This city is a must visit for fans of Mozart or the Sound of Music!
