Is winter a good time to visit the Netherlands? Yes! The weather can be unpredictable with sun, rain, snow, and cold temperatures, but the landscapes are beautiful and there is plenty of things to do.
Every winter, the beautiful, historic, medieval, and old town of Bruges (also known as Brugge) transforms into a magical winter wonderland with sparkling lights, Christmas trees and Christmas markets.
As a preparation for the Holidays, I love to spend some time on Christmas markets. And how great is it when you can spend a weekend on the Christmas markets, in three different countries?
Cologne is one of the German cities that is known for the several Christmas markets. Every year several squares are transformed in the most wonderful markets with plenty of food-, drinks-, and decoration stands.
Each year around Christmas time, many German cities are having a Christmas market. If you happen to be in the country during this time of the year, you should definitely visit one of the many markets.
