1. Let yourself be surprised by the mountains of Kitzbühel
Located in the Tyrol, Kitzbühel has one of the most famous ski resorts in Austria. It has 170 km of alpine ski slopes and 32 km of cross-country ski trails accessed by 56 funiculars and elevators. Kitzbühel is a small medieval town that has as background the spectacular mountains Wilder Kaiser, being a great place to finish the year and start the next. The atmosphere is fun and its cobblestone streets mix with five-star hotels, old colourful houses, luxury shops and charming cafés. In addition, it has one of the best après-skiing in the Alps with 23 mountain refuges and restaurants or at the foot of slopes.
2. Dance by the lake in Tignes, in the French Alps
New Year’s Eve celebrations in the lively Paradiski ski resort in the French Savoy region are legendary. The lakeshore is home to Europe’s highest open-air dance floor, an idyllic place surrounded by the Alps. Thousands of attendees spend the night dancing, stopping only to watch the spectacular fireworks with the midnight chimes. The event starts at 23:00 and many of the complex’s restaurants offer special menus, which are essential for recharging batteries. In addition, there are numerous parties in the local bars.
3. Celebrate it in style in Porto, Portugal
Christmas has arrived and with it some free days that we can make the most of in Portugal: it is one of the cheapest destinations in Western Europe and always has a lot to offer. Travelling to Porto at any time of the year is synonymous with good food and the best Port wines, and at Christmas or “natal” will not be different, but probably much more abundant.
The great clock that adorns the town hall building is in charge of taking us minute by minute to the awaited new year. Every year a stage is installed at one end of the square and concerts are held until late at night.
4. Binge on culture in Venice, Italy
The year-end celebrations represent the moment when Venice reaches the maximum number of tourists (on a par with the carnival), with tourists coming from all over the world to enjoy this spectacle. Since the first days of December, especially the 8th of December, the streets and shops of the city are dressed up for Christmas celebrations.
The culminating point of the New Year’s celebration in Venice (or New Year’s Eve) is marked by fireworks, fired from ships lined up in front of St. Mark’s Square, with lights reflected in the lagoon waters and in the eyes of thousands of people who have come to admire them.
