hey, my financee and I are planning our honeymoon, which will be in late December this year. We love Europe a lot and would welcome any ideas on which countries/cities to visit, especially considering the weather?

INCREDIBLE winter hideaway in a town outside of Salzburg, Austria called Hallstatt. I stayed there a couple of Christmas' ago and it was one of my best/ beautiful holidays ever. The town is situated between two rocky and snowy mountains and on a placid blue lake. I recommend a small inn called Gastof Simony. It views the lake and mountains. It's run by an nice elderly lady and it has old creeky wooden floors and nice quaint rooms with incredibly soft warm beds with giant down comforters. I can't give enough adjectives to decribe this place. The town is really quiet and slow moving in the winter so there won't be many tourists. To get there you will take a regional train from Salzburg to Hallstatt, then a ferry will take you across the lake to the town (a beautiful little trip). Well, I hope this helps. If there was a best honeymoon spot in all of europe this one could be the one. Best wishes. Derek
