Winter Western Europe Tour

Jump to last reply

Hi,

My husband and I are planning a trip to western Europe for this winter, December-January, for about 3 weeks.

Background: My husband lived in a few of these cities as a child but he has not visited since then, I have never been to Europe. We are fairly experienced travelers in the US and Canada. We took a 3+ week road trip through the US, hitting 15 states and many cities, for our honeymoon. We took a similar trip, 1 week road trip through the eastern part of Canada, with stops in 5 major cities and other small cities. We've also taken many other shorter trips.

Right now we are thinking that we will be traveling from about December 20-January 10. But nothing is booked yet. We are available to travel December 18-January 14 but plan for a 3 week trip.

I am most concerned about Christmas and the week between Christmas and New Years. I don't want to be stuck with most places closed.

We would like to visit the following cities in this order, though the list is slightly flexible:
London (3)
Brussels (1)
Amsterdam(1)
Berlin(2)
Prague(3)
Venice (2)
Geneva(1)
French Country Side (1)
Paris (3)
London (1)
*parenthesis being the number of nights spent in that city.

We primarily plan to travel by train but realize a few of these legs would be best traveled by plane.

Generally, I am looking for advice and suggestions based on the above information. Specifically, about traveling during the holiday season.

Thank you in advance for sharing your advice!
