The El Dorado for anyone who loves Christmas tree decorations, a playground for daring ice skaters, and a vibrant Christmas wonderland. Basel is all this during the Advent season.
November days in the Swiss Plateau are dull with high fog. Anyone who wants to top up on vitamin D from time to time travels to sunny places. My favourite route for a day trip with a holiday feel is the journey from Domodossola to Locarno on the Centovalli Railway. The best way to do this is with the Saver Day Pass.
Salzburg often gets lost in the shadows of Vienna, despite the fact that the festival city has plenty to offer besides Mozart. For example, Salzburg is home to Baroque palaces and gardens and a variety of museums. It also stages lovely evening concerts and boasts what is likely the best dessert in all of Austria – the Salzburger Nockerln sweet soufflé. Why not come along with me on my journey to Salzburg!
