    Whoa, that’s definitely an extensive list. I’m happy that I’ve already checked some off this list incl. Prague, Malta etc! Next in my wishlist is Krakow and Croatia. Ofcourse heading to Sweden to see the Aurora Borealis is a dream for me too.

    I normally try and avoid europe in winter but seeing these photos certainly makes me want to visit. Many of the cities I have visited in summer but they do look beautiful with snow and I would love to visit Vatnajökull National Park and the places in Norway.

    Wow so many amazing wintry destinations! I am particularly drawn to mountains and snow-capped peaks and loved your recommendations of the Laplands and even Macedonia. Didn’t know 80% of the country is covered in mountains. This article has given me new ideas on where to go next winter.

    I have been to Lapland in the winter, it wasn’t as cold as I imagined and it was soooo much fun! I also traveled to Iceland in the winter specifically to see an ice cave. The one I visited was not as spectacular as those I have seen in photos, so buyer beaware. I would love to see Zermatt or Neuschwanstein covered in snow. And, Strasbourgis on my winter list for the Christmas markets. Great ideas!

    This is a fantastic list. Several of the places like Lapland and Iceland have been on my bucket list for quite some time. I’ve visited Edinburgh and Dublin in the winter and loved how it wasn’t so crowded. We’re looking forward to going to Budapest this winter.

    Thank you for more travel inspiration. I’ve only been to a few of these destinations and can vouch that they are excellent. I’d love to see the Northern Lights. I’d never even thought about Serbia, Romania and Croatia for the winter so thanks for the tips.

    Wow! As an European, even I can say this is a intense list. However, I have been to all these countries and 60% of the places mentioned and in the winter months too…and I totally agree. I love seeing Tallinn in the snow (looks like a scene from a Christmas Card) and Malbun in Liechtenstein in the snow also is totally awesome. Now I want to go to the places on the list I haven’t been to like the Lofoten isles and the national park in Croatia.

    I am in love with each of these places but really dread the cold! But I guess that is what adds charm to these places. Loved the look of Schloss Neuschwanstein in Germany a lot. I was there during one summer so comparatively this looked so fairy tale like. Zermatt in Switzerland is always covered in snow I guess because that is exactly how it looked when I was there one early April. Great post.

    I must admit that we often head for warmer temperatures when it gets cold in Toronto. But I am tempted with some of these beautiful winter destinations. Lapland looks like a winter wonderland. Abisko would be a great spot to head for the Aurora Borealis. We saw St Petersburg in the fall but it does look it might be tempting to return in the winter. And Tallin just looks like a Christmas card. I know I need to get over my dislike of travelling to colder climates. There are some gems here. Maybe the Algarve, Malta or Sicily would be the spot for me for winter travel.

      Thanks, a lot Linda. It’s true that a lot of people prefer a mild climate than colder ones but some colder destinations can bring a lot of exciting experience too.

    This is a great list. Most of them are part of our bucket list including Vatnajökull National Park which we plan to visit next year. Thank you for these tips as well. Plus, your photos are really stunning.
