Budapest is a magnificent holiday destination and gets lots of love during the summer months. However, the city stays beautiful even during winter and still gets a good number of visitors. The sprinkling of snow enhances the city’s skyline during the colder months adding to its charm.
Winter gives you an excuse of lavishing in one of the numerous Budapest cafes andbe a part of the city’s coffee culture. While visiting in winter, you can take time to visit one of the museums to get some culture in the system as well. In the museums, you are sure to see some classic masterpieces and ancient art.
While in Budapest over winter, don’t forget to visit the city’s thermal baths, one of the best things you can bathe in. Budapest is home to countless indoor and outdoor pools also, where you will find locals and visitors basking even in the coldest of days.
Lisbon is an all year destination favorite for visitors. Winter is no exception for visiting Lisbon as the city has loads to offer. The winter weather in Lisbon is very mild with temperatures from November through February averaging 15˚C thereby making the city a perfect winter destination.
You will get some good deals on flights and accommodation during the winter as long as you do not make the bookings over New Year and Christmas when these regularly soar.
While in Lisbon during winter, you will get the chance to witness the influx of migrating birds so make sure to plan a bird watching tour at the Tagus Nature Reserve where you will see flamingos, geese, mallards, egrets, and avocets in the thousands.

London is a city that is well geared to keep you entertained during the cold weather. With top class pubs, galleries, museums, and restaurants, you will always have something to do during winter.
A favorite prior to and all the way through to the Christmas seasonis the Hyde Park winter wonderland. Whilst at the park you can visit winter markets, ice-skate, drinksome mulled wine and watch circus performances. The park gets busy, so it is best that you make bookings in advance.
There is no right place to visit in London during winter than the Southbank. The Southbank festival should be on your list of places to be in during your winter break in London.
I hope this post will help you plan for the next time you want to take a winter holiday. Which is your favorite winter City Break in Europe?
