For those of us in the Southern Hemisphere a white Christmas is something we often experience in American movies of course. If you want to escape the heat and head to a winter wonderland why not visit one of the magical destinations below and experience a truly special Christmas you will never forget. Here at Auto Europe we have travelled far and wide and consolidated a list of our top four white Christmas cities.
Wander the beautifully decorated streets of Oslo and embrace the snow and festive feeling that surrounds you through the month of December. The streets are covered with lights, snow and Christmas is definitely in the air! Visit the gorgeous Christmas markets which are located in the city centre of Oslo and have arts and crafts for sale as well as local delicacies, entertainment, a Ferris wheel and Christmas workshop. Indulge in traditional Norwegian dishes on Christmas Eve such as pork belly, lamb ribs, boiled cod, roast ham and hot rice pudding for dessert.
There is plenty to see and do in Montreal over the holiday season! If you are lucky enough to be in Canada this Christmas be sure to check out the festivities in the city centre. Visit the famous Santa Claus Parade and enjoy watching the twenty plus floats or watch the showcase of Christmas lights at the night time parade held at the Plaza St Hubert. Go for a stroll downtown and let the thousands of lights get you into the Christmas spirit.
Those lucky enough to be in Austria this holiday season or only a short journey away will have the joy of experiencing Christmas markets, music and festivals in Salzburg and throughout the country. The Salzburg Christmas market on Cathedral Square is simply magical and centred around a lush green Christmas tree. Head to the Silent Night Chapel where the Christmas carol was born, drink wine and admire the hand-carved decorations.
There are plenty of reasons you should spend Christmas in Chicago this year and if a five kilometre ugly sweater run won't convince you then I don't know what will! On a more serious note, if you are in Chicago over the holiday seasons you must visit the beautiful Christkindlmarket; the biggest open art market in Chicago. Here you will find many vendors selling arts, crafts, jewellery, food, drink and more. See the traditional Christmas tree lighting in Daley Plaza or spend the day ice skating.
