6 Geneva Switzerland from £48 Most winter visito

Posted on by

first_img6. Geneva, Switzerland from £48Most winter visitors head to Switzerland for skiing and boarding, but if you’re happy to gaze upon snowy peaks from the comfort of a café cupping a huge hot chocolate, then Geneva is the city break destination for you. The views across Lake Geneva to the high Alps are amazing, but the city itself is a stunner, at its best in the quiet winter time when the snow falls on the cobbles of the old town and there is little more enjoyable to do than find a bar and revel in something hot, or alcoholic.Grab a great Geneva hotel 4. Malaga, Spain from £42Winter sun doesn’t have to be a long flight away; just a couple of hours in the air will bring you a healthy dose of the shine in southern Spain. While we’re not talking bikinis and pedaloes, it should be rather pleasant for strollimng the marina at Malaga checking out the yachts.Get a cheap hotel in MalagaMore: 10 best things to do in Malaga: a local’s guide 3. Riga, Latvia from £37Don’t be put off by its attractiveness to stag partying Brits, for the more civilised attractions of Latvia’s capital are coming to the fore. Riga has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in recognition of its world-class collection of Jugendstil (German Art Nouveau) architecture. Take a trip to the top of St Peter’s Church for an incredible 360 degree view of this Baltic beauty.Need a hotel in Riga? 2. Wroclaw, Poland from £32Wroclaw actually trumps Krakow in the nightlife stakes, but the bar flies are more student than stag, more local than lager lout. Join the cool kids at Art Café Kalambur, where a quick beer could turn into a long night – it’s open ‘til 7am on a Friday (or should that be Saturday?) 5. Dusseldorf, Germany from £43Bold, bright and brimming with sophistication, Dusseldorf is one of Germany’s wealthiest cities. Cutting edge, modern architecture mingles with high fashion and an arts scene to rival any major city in the world. But, if you think Dusseldorf is all work and no play you’d better think again. Head for the Altstadt, the historic quarter on the Rhine, otherwise known as ‘the longest bar in the world’. This is because there are somewhere in the region of 260 bars and brewing houses where you can join the party-loving locals for a beer or two, or three.center_img RelatedTravel bargains of the week: 6 flights for under £466 cheap flight deals, 6 European destinations: get away for less with our picks of the week all under £46 return.7 flights for under £47Check those prices!

Dublin, Ireland from £28Ok, it’s cliché, and the Guinness Storehouse at St James’s Gate may lack the atmosphere of city centre pubs, but when in Dublin, as they say. And its Gravity Bar bar offers one the best view of the city. You’ll find yourself in this rooftop bar at the end of a tour through the production, history and famous advertising campaigns of Dublin’s most famous export.Find a hotel in Dublinlast_img read more
