West Europe December, Best Cities
Europe December Weather
For sightseeing in Europe choice is limited in December, unless a) you’re happy with primarily indoor culture b) you don’t mind the cold c) you head seriously south.
North and central Europe are usually either cold, wet and grey, or cold, white and dark, with daylight in increasingly short supply as you move north.
On the upside, tourists are also in short supply, many cities add interesting lights to their streets, and indoor entertainment is exceptional.
Some European cities have lively pre-Christmas markets, or colourful New Year celebrations, or super-value January sales.
