Europe city breaks are made in the winter. Picture this: gazing skywards from volcanic, Icelandic landscapes to see an inky blackness punctuated by perfectly-choreographed ribbons of emerald. Nothing comes close to seeing the Northern Lights for the first time, not to mention enjoying your inaugural thermal spring bath, followed by a crunchy slab of Dobos cake, in Budapest. Or how about sipping on glühwein as you admire the jugglers, acrobats and fire breathers of Berlin’s Gendarmenmarkt – one of 60+ Christmas markets in the German capital? Thermals and mittens at the ready: your Europe winter break starts here, with a hand-picked holiday by Flight Centre.
