The Most Beautiful European Cities For A Magical Winter Break ✨

The Most Beautiful European Cities For A Magical Winter Break ✨

Exam season is approaching a little bit too quickly for my liking, so I reckon you deserve a break.

Here are some of the most magical winter breaks in Europe to get away for a little bit. And if not, you can just marvel at the beaut Instagram shots and daydream for a few minutes/hours, don't worry we won't judge. 

If you're more into Christmas Markets we've also got you sorted.


Head to Munich it's a beautiful city with lots to do in. If you're feeling like a particularly magical Christmassy trip then you can take a trip (around 2 hours in the car) to Neuschwanstein Castle which is possibly the more fairytale castle we've ever seen. Seriously, look how wonderful. Definitely worth the trip.

If you're into cars, there's the famous BMW Museum to keep you occupied. If not, seriously, see below THIS CASTLE IS AMAZING.

If you love a bit of snow then Moscow could be the one for you. It'll be cold, yes. Bitingly, so, but Moscow is again an absolute fairytale land that just has to be seen to be believed. Especially in Winter, St Basil's Cathedral looks magical.

To keep yourself warm you can grab a hot cup of coffee and a slice of delectable cake from Brownie Cafe. You will not be disappointed.

We've already sang the praises of the wonderful Christmas Market in Prague. The market runs from 26 November 2016 - 01 January 2017, and it's the perfect place to pick up some delicious food and gifts for Christmas.

Prague also has some beautiful architecture, so if you love a walk through a beautiful city, then Prague could be a great choice for you. In particular, a wonderful walk across the 14th Century bridge is one of the best. The bridge was commissioned in 1357 by Charles IV to replace an older bridge that had been washed away by floods.

Ok so maybe we're a bit partial to Germany, but seriously, it's a great country to visit in the Winter.

For a truly magical experience, visit the beautiful Rakotzbrücke Devil's Bridge which is just outside of Berlin. Perfect for a day trip, even better for a wondrous Instagram snap.
