During winter time few people think of going on holiday. Excepting the two weeks around the celebrations when all the people from the city tend to leave, January, February but as well the begging of December are dead months for the tourism.
In most of the places during those times there is an extra – season and the lodging prices are lower. In order for the offers to be more attractive the hotel or pension owners offer you extra services without any extra prices. Moreover, the flight companies as well encourage people to travel this period of the year by lowering the flight ticket prices.
A good thing during this period is that, despite of the fact that you will still meet some people now and then, it will be far from what crowded can be during summer time. A city-break is far easier to be done and in a peaceful manner than during summer time, with all that fuss and agitation.
Winter time is the only time when you can enjoy the Christmas markets. The wooden small houses come alive in the main areas of the city and the winter boiled wine smell attracts all of us. Strasbourg was once named the Capital of Christmas – so this would be a nice location to start your winter holiday in.
Having a sledge ride is not just for little ones. There are many cities that do rental sleighs that are drawn by horses etc. Try this romantic outdoor activity with your loved one.
If you would like to go somewhere but are not a snow lover – try to go sunbathing in the middle of the winter. Choosing a tropical island like Tenerife or Canarias Islands – will cost you less than choosing it during summer time.
