8 reasons to travel and Europe in winter

The Christmas markets.

The first time I visit a Christmas market in Germany, I am stunned, and it is difficult to describe through images the atmosphere that is felt with the aroma of “glühwein” (hot wine) and seasonal snacks that come out of each Put, with the cold and the snow falling on your face and the background music of some band of the city that does not stop playing Christmas carols, it is as if you felt child again and a thousand emotions invade your body.

The seasonal decoration

In my point of view there is no better Christmas decoration than in the old continent and is that unlike what I have seen in America with inflatable Santa Claus and millions of artificial lights, Europeans always prefer to make it more old fashioned and with decorations More traditional and natural, this always gives a touch much older and full of nostalgia.

Snow!

And is that even though it seems simple you will not be able to stop watching for a long time the snow fall and transport you to all those stories and movies that you saw as a child.

A lot of culture

You will be surprised that in these times there are many outdoor events, since home country and culture shows how they live the winter, be it music concerts, the Christmas markets themselves, exhibitions and Christmas events.

Food

Uff .. Unlike the summer where you see the gastronomy based on green salads and normally light meals (I like something with more plump), in winter it changes completely and you will see dishes full of meat, sausages, sweet bread and delicious soups, of course it has its reason to be and is to be able to withstand the winter.

Amazing scenery by train

The landscapes that can be seen traveling by train in Europe are always spectacular, but for travelers like us Mexicans always are much more spectacular in winter, seeing the completely white fields, mountains and lakes is simply indescribable, it is a new world and as Such an experience is always indescribable.
