Summer gets the limelight but Europe shines all year round. Exploring Europe with us in winter means all the same incredible sites and experiences, but with a smaller price tag, fewer crowds and all the stuff you simply can’t do in summer (anyone for twinkling Christmas markets?). We even have European destinations that let you enjoy some warming winter sun. So, whisper it, but it’s true: Europe really is cooler in winter.

Cheaper prices

Want to experience the best of Europe but don’t want to pay inflated prices? Travelling off peak is the ultimate travel hack.

Fewer crowds

Fewer people means a more authentic, local experience. Plus, minimal queuing means you won’t have to miss the unmissable icons.

Traditional winter vibes

Crackling log fires, steaming mugs of hot chocolate, snowy skies and cute as a button Christmas markets. It’s fair to say Europe & winter make a beautiful couple.

Skiing and snowboarding

For beginners and pros alike, stay in our incredible Gasthof Schoneck for endless snowy fun. Transport, gear, lessons and passes – all sorted for you.

Get some winter sun

Winter in Europe isn’t all about fresh snow and frosty markets. Travel to the right places (the Iberian Peninsula, for example) and you can catch some winter rays without the crowds or price tags.
