4-5 Day Trip

My husband and I are looking to plan a quick get away to Europe in Decemeber. Can anyone suggest a city or region that would lend itself to such a trip -- where we wouldn't feel like we were missing out by taking such a sort trip. We have visited London and Paris several times so would be interested in something else. Any advice would be helpful.
Thanks

Barcelona and the Catalunya region would be great. Or Andalucia. Great architecture (especially Gaudi's work in Barcelona), good food and wine, music.

What a fortunate position to be in! How hard to make a decision! If it were me, I'd probably go to Dublin, for the relatively short, easy flight over. You only have a short time and don't want to wear yourself out getting there. But in my heart of hearts, I'd love to visit Copenhagen. Ever since I saw the travel deals to Copenhagen last winter I've had a yen to see it in the snowy season - it looked so cheerful!

It depends on the weather you like, but for the amount of interesting sights and the time you have these might be some of them:

-Sevilla & day trip to Ronda

-Florence & day trip to Siena

-Barcelona

-Lisbon

-Rome

-Dublin

-Copenhague

-Berlín & day trip to Postdam or Dresden

-Granada & Alpujarras & skiing

-Vienna, Praha, Krakow or Budapest ( a bit cold though ).

-Brugge-Gend-Antwerp

-Napoli Bay

Venice!

We had a wonderful 4 night stay last month. Plenty of time to see it all and soak it up.

In December, apart Paris and London, I would most probably choose Vienna.

Munich, great suggestion, Bob. I would add an odd destination if your plans do not go exclusively for cities and like warm weather and absolutely beautiful landscapes: Lanzarote Island ( Canary Islands )

My three suggestions (all cold and miserable, but that's December for you) would be Copenhagen, Amsterdam, or Edinburgh. A car is a burden in all of them, they're all a good size where you can make a dent in the things there are to do or see in 4 or 5 days, and they're all really alive in December. Not a lot of daylight, mind.

Plan B would be Menton/Monaco/Nice. Actually, Plan B doesn't sound too bad, either.

We did Bavaria 5 Thanksgivings in a row. The Christmas fairs are running in the small towns and the snow in the mountains is beautiful.

Fly into Frankfurt. Visit Heidelberg for a night as it is easy drive from airport. Then head to Rothenburg for 2 nights and on the Garmisch if you have the time.

You will have cold weather, but some beautiful sunny days if you are lucky. The summer crowds are gone and the restaurants want to see you.

Great trip! You can do the sun stuff anytime. Salzburg and Munich also fun that time of the year.
