If you are hoping to try out something a little different for this coming Christmas season, then consider a fun destination outside of your home city. There are so many fantastic cities that celebrate Christmas in unique, fun and exciting ways that you can join in on. If you aren’t sure where to head, consider the following options…
New York City – USA
If you love New York City in the fall, spring and summer, then you will most certainly love it during the winter months. Bundle up and head to the famous annual lighting of Rockeffeller Center’s Christmas Tree, experience Bryant Park’s Winter Wonderland, ice skate at Central Park and marvel at the Christmas lights that seem to illuminate the city.
Valkenburg – Netherlands
Explore the inviting and cozy town of Valkenburg in the Netherlands where you will get the chance to wander through the fabulous Christmas market, discover the cavern houses, centuries old chapels and have some fun on a train ride aboard the Christmas Express. This is a fantastic place to head with little children where fun and holiday cheer is guaranteed every step of the way.
Nuremberg – Germany
Picture taking in magnificent views of the grand Alps, being amongst medieval castles and taking a stroll through one of Germany’s oldest Christmas markets. If that sounds like your kind of Christmas, then Nuremberg is the place to head this coming season. Enjoy delicious German cuisine, watching your kids go for a ride on the old-fashioned carousel, hopping on a steam train and walking along the Nativity scene trail.
London – UK
If you have yet to visit London, this Christmas would be a splendid time to do so as they know exactly what they are doing when it comes to great Christmas traditions and festivities. Go ice-skating in the 1,000-year-old Tower Moat, take a Harry potter Hogwarts tour at Warner Bros. Studio, explore the massive Christmas market and sing along to Christmas carols at Trafalgar Square.
