The Christmas holidays are a great time to get away from everyday stresses. If you are looking for a fantastic place to vacation at Christmas, there are several places you might want to consider. Some have excellent places to shop for Christmas gifts, while others have phenomenal Christmas music, or even winter snow activities like driving reindeer, snowboarding, and ice skating. Travelers can even take in the music of the holidays at special events around the world. Though they are all unique, one major similarity all of them share is awesome Christmas goodies. Here are some possible locations you might want to think about for your next Christmas getaway.
There are so many places decked out in Christmas spirit in Copenhagen, Denmark, that it may be very hard to see them all on a short visit. Hear the Tivoli Youth Guard play your favorite Christmas songs while strolling through the gardens decorated with more than 500,000 Christmas lights and balls. Be sure to leave time to shop at the Christmas stalls along with eating traditional Christmas goodies. You will feel as if you have stepped into a winter wonderland when you visit many of the brightly decorated hotels. Stroll under the canopy of lights in the city center before hugging up to someone special while sipping on a hot cup of glogg at Nyhavn. Several outdoor ice skating rinks make for great opportunities to squeeze in some exercise before indulging in traditional Danish Christmas foods such as risengrød, gingerbread cookies, oatmeal balls, and marzipan. It may be a good thing it is cold in Copenhagen in the winter, because it allows you to hide the extra pounds you are sure to gain under a heavy winter overcoat.
