Christmas in a Swiss spa. Ja bitte!

story by: House of Travel

Style, elegance and an incredible winter adventure awaits you. Imagine a truly authentic Christmas experience spent in Switzerland.

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
Kick off your magical adventure in a first class Swiss chalet in a hidden village perched dramatically in the snow-clad Swiss Alps. Spend Christmas as it should be - simply relax, take in the spa pampering treatments or ski on the slopes high above the town where the church bells are ringing amongst the enchanting snow-clad environment.

Hot chocolate & biscuits
Head along to several locations in the Austrian Lakes District made famous in the Sound of Music film as well as the famous Silent Night Chapel on the site the Christmas carol was first ever performed. Be sure to indulge in hot chocolate and biscuits in the courtyard of St Peter’s Keller, dating way back to the 1500s

Christmas markets
Take time out to soak up the atmosphere of the famous Salzburg baroque Christmas Markets where you can shop for unique giftware while indulging in mulled red wine, fresh produce and sweet bakery eats.

Glacier Express 
Germany’s southernmost city is Appenzell where you can enjoy a delightful horse drawn sleigh ride underneath snow-topped trees and stunning village settings, before boarding the famous Glacier Express train through Switzerland’s finest mountain scenery. Choose premium seats in the panoramic carriages and you’ll be presented with the utmost luxury and scenic views.

Warm tubs & spa treatments
The Spa Town of Leukerbad is set in a hidden valley at an altitude of 1,400 metres you’ll be surrounded by towering, jagged peaks. Hot, therapeutic natural thermal water spring out from these mountains.

Magical landscapes are awaiting you with snow-capped mountains, chalets and trees in the crisp northern hemisphere winter sun. Cosy fireplaces, Christmas cheer, fairy lights and mulled wine are all part and parcel of this unique European winter delight, all of which are a memorable and indulgent Swiss experience to cherish for years to come.

NYE in Italy? Why not!
Why not extend your Christmas holiday to include a New Year’s celebration in a real Italian Castle. Imagine staying in the glorious CastelBrando Castle set in the charming foothills of the Italian Dolomites, there’s so much to do and see in this 2000 year old Roman fortress turned noble’s palace. Explore romantic Venice, the chic Italian ski resort of Cortina d’Ampezzo and the stylish city of Milan. There's no better way to see in the new year than with a new pair of fine Italian shoes.
