Many people out there follow a “there is no place like home” sort of Christmas policy when it comes to where they want to be for the holidays. Others find this a great time of the year to travel and see a different part of the country (or even the world).
Christmas for some is synonymous with the beach, braai’s and sunny weather, but for others it just wouldn’t be Christmas without snow. Whether you choose to spend the Christmas holidays relaxing on the beach or taking off overseas on a winter getaway, you’re sure to enjoy the festive season.
Here are some sensational ideas for you to look at if you are undecided on where to spend your Christmas Holiday:
Christmas in Vienna
If there’s one city in Europe that combines sophisticated elegance with cozy warmth, it must be Vienna during Christmas time. There is the splendid Schönbrunn Palace, lavish City Hall building and numerous classical concerts to give your holiday some culture, and Vienna has the splendid reputation for having one of the best Christmas markets in Europe, with beautifully decorated wooden stalls lining market squares, hand-crafted gifts, impossibly good apfel strudel, cheer-inducing Glühwein, and a lot of singalong fun!
For the more adventurous out there, how about spending 7 nights exploring all that the exciting Alpine village of Kitzbuhel has to offer. Skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, shopping, sleigh rides and more….
