So, whether you are preparing to spend your Christmas with loved ones or sail the seven seas, strap up your boots and put on your woolly hats as we jump into some of the best winter destinations that you can travel to this festive season.

Hamburg, Germany

Known for its culinary delights, Germany never fails to impress. Hamburg is amongst some of the best winter destinations available. Winding canals weave through the historic town and Christmas markets date back to early 16th century. The authenticity of the markets lives on today so, whilst some new additions have been created over the years, you will still find the same iconic German treats. Some of the tasty delights includes Lebkuchen, Glühwein and the famous bratwurst.

New York, USA

From colossal skyscrapers to picture-perfect sights, New York has it all. The city that never sleeps holds adventures around every corner and is transformed from a bustling metropolis by day to a Christmas wonderland by night. Rows of shops await customers with open arms, monuments are beautifully decorated and carols can be heard from far and wide. In December, the Big Apple is simply magical.

Rome, Italy

This ancient capital is perfect for festive fans throughout the winter season. With so much to see, you will be lost for choice, as beautiful open-air museums welcome you in with rich culture and centuries of history to explore. Rome is arguably just as good in winter as it is in summer. Faith and tradition play a key role in the festive fun with modern culture, food and people making the celebrations just that little bit sweeter.
