- Christmas content – look away now!
Sooo, I’m a big advocate of its not the festive season until December, however this needs answers now.
Mrs STR loves Christmas and is already giddy walking round garden centres etc with the displays on show. She always likes to do a Christmas Market somewhere, so I’m thinking a surprise long weekend somewhere on zee continent.
Anyone have any experience of the obvious choices and which is the prettiest/most romantic/most wondrous etc out of the obvious choices – Amsterdam/Prague/Berlin/Budapest etc?
Not holding out much hope on the grinch’s own forum but here’s hoping!Posted 4 years agograntwayMember
Try Barcelona as only 1hr 45mins from England shoresPosted 4 years ago
also they do celebrate Christmas so should be very festive, and only 20mins to get
into Barcelona from the airport.
Plus it would be warmer as I remember taking our Daughter there for her 16th Birthday for
the day in January and Gatwick was di-icing the wings of the plan here and when we landed
we was wearing t shirts and sunglasses 😉yossarianMember
This one is nice. Cologne is an interesting city too. The roman museum is amazing, the glass wear looks like it was made yesterday.Posted 4 years agoPik n MixSubscriber
Amsterdam at Christmas is amazing. I spent 3 weeks there for Christmas and new year the year my dad died. The markets sell everything you could imagine related to Christmas (and many things that you couldn’t). The city itself is decked out with trees and decorations everywhere, the Dutch are the friendliest people imaginable and the treats being cooked by the numerous Christmas themed vendors are to die for, some quite literally!
Accommodation wise for me there is only one place, the Krasnapolsky on Dam square with a suite overlooking the square itself, it’s a bit spendy, but they treat you like royalty.
Whatever you do make sure your out by New Years! The Dutch are mental at new year.Posted 4 years agobeagleMember
