THANK YOU FOR YOUR REQUEST
We will be in touch soon.
We are officially going through the holidays season with Christmas and New Year’s Eve celebrations coming ahead. Whether you are thinking about doing your Christmas shopping list on Christmas markets or ridding on ice rinks, these are the 7 places to visit for the holidays.
It’s not just Rockefeller Center and its world-famous Christmas tree that is decked out in its holiday finest every year. Christmas in New York is timeless and beautiful. A carriage ride through Central Park is like living in a Currier and Ives print in the middle of Manhattan. The Rockettes don their Santa outfits at Radio City Music Hall and the windows at Macy’s are an ever-changing wonderland of animatronics and set design.
Cologne boasts eight different Christmas markets on both sides of the Rhine, with the largest one located on the plaza in front of the city’s iconic cathedral, the Kölner Dam. Grab a cup of hot glühwein, a spiced, mulled wine that warms the most stubborn Christmas chills, and stroll the stalls at the markets, each of which is slightly different and offer a wide array of gifts, foods and holiday items.
We have a Santa Claus because the Dutch brought us Sinterklaas, their version of St. Nick as a bearded gift-giver who rewards good children. But Sint, as he’s called, visits on December 5, Saint Nicholas’ Eve, so the Dutch celebrate a two-part Christmas: toys and presents on the fifth, and family and food on the 25th. Between both celebrations, Amsterdam comes alive with white lights everywhere, shopping avenues fill up, and everyone hopes the weather will get cold enough for the canals to freeze over so they can have a big ice skating party.
There will be a white Christmas at Colorado’s most famous mountain town and ski resort area, where the slopes open in late November, and get packed during the holiday season.
Paris is known as The City of Light, as a reason, Christmas is the time to show how it works. White lights in all shapes line the boulevards and shopping streets, high-end stores put on elaborate Christmas displays that attract crowds from all over the world and at night, Parisians lace on their ice skates on a temporary rink beneath the glow of the Eiffel Tower.
Every year, the town draws thousands of visitors from all over Europe to tour the two different Santa-themed attractions, Santa Claus Village and Santa Park, which offer tours of Santa’s workshops, opportunities to buy some of Santa’s merchandise, encounters with genuine reindeer, and visits with the big man himself. There’s also a Santa-dedicated post office which functions as the European hub for its Indiana counterpart.
London is the perfect place to visit for the holidays. Whether you are thinking about doing your Christmas shopping list or just ridding on the London Eye, London is there for you.
