December in "Germany"

Jump to last reply

Sitting with an empty passport in hand, I've decided to travel to Regensburg, Germany to visit my friend for a better part of December! She recently moved there and hasn't had a chance to explore much yet, leaving our options even more endless. I plan on purchasing plane tickets by the end of the week, leaving soon after my classes end Dec. 11th and returning at a minimum of 14 days, but hoping for a full month (depending how work goes Monday). That being said, I am planning this trip on the assumption I will be traveling for a full month.
So far I plan on flying Tampa > Munich then taking a train to Regensburg where she lives. From there I am able to drop unnecessary gear and prepare for our travels. Her only request is to spend time in Amsterdam, and northern France other than that we are willing to go in any direction! I have never been skiing/snowboarding so visiting "the best" spot to learn would be incredible, feel free to suggest your favorite. Ive heard numerous times how magical christmas in Germany is, but we are open if theres somewhere else we should see. I haven't looked into locations for New Years or any other destinations.
Both my friend and I are college students in our early 20's and can have fun doing anything. She is an artist and Im into design/interior architecture so we can find enjoyment easily, leaving the criteria vastly open.
Last thing to note is I am from Florida and have never experienced snow other than <2in, she lives there currently and adapts to the cold well. Anything besides the basics I should know to help stay warm?
Any tips, advice or suggestions are highly appreciated!
