I'm just about to throw my hands up in the air and give up. Dh, myself, our two daughters and their partners are planning a 'white' (I know, no guarantees). I'll be really honest, we want to experience the whole thing, xmas markets, mulled wine, shopping, eating, snow would be great, skiing would also be awesome, but especially somewhere really 'cool' to spend Xmas eve and Xmas day. And if we can ‘throw in’ a sleigh ride, I’d be in heaven. :-)

We will spend about 5 days together then each couple will go their own way. One couple to London/Scotland the other still deciding and DH & I may do Scandinavia.

I've had a look at Berchtesgaden in Germany, which looks great. One concern is there may not be 'enough' to do. We'd all like to go skiing (well try anyway) even if it’s a short bus/train ride from our base. We're thinking a major city might offer more variety for everyone.

I'd love any and all suggestions.
