Dear friends

I write for a Brazilian travel magazine and I am trying to find 50 good reasons to visit Europe in winter time, for an article I have to finish this week... (really in a hurry!)

By "reasons" I mean not only general stuff like "it's cheaper", but also specific tips like "In Berlin there is this little cafe that serves a special desert made of this and that only in winter time etc. etc. etc.".

So, I'm looking for tips from every country. Can you help me?

Thanks

In Budapest you could have a snowy bath. (in an open air thermal bath)

Paulo: All I can add is that I have wanted to ski in Chamonix-Mt. Blanc all my life. Maybe one of these days I will get there.

Wow, you don't ask for much. When's pay day? Share and share alike!

Seriously, why don't you just make stuff up?

I thought that a good answer would be "nothing". (Actually, the northern lights is a quite good answer IMO.)

I especially liked the special dessert that is only served "in winter" (perhaps it is made of freshly plowed snow).

Oh, well; the jounalist's life is not so easy sometimes.

hey,

for sure you should recommend a bar in berlin called "kellerloch" which means "cellar hole". which it literally is....

you won't find this place in any magazines or something - because its illegal.

weird people, mostly punks hang out there, but hey, they sell half a liter beer for just one euro...

it is on Rigaer street and open whenever the punks feel like partying.

hope, you'll find a way to check out that place,

I hear King Ludwig's castle down near Fussen is great to visit in Winter cause of the snow on it.
