Lufthansa has discounted fares for travel between European destinations between Christmas and New Year’s. The fares are several Euro cheaper than their normal rates and start as low as €99. The best fares seem to be for Italian destinations with Rome and Milan as well as Paris and Vienna (depending on which German city you depart from). These fares allow for a great side trip if you already are going to be in Europe!

I always enjoy travelling to Europe during the holiday season because you tend to find the best air fares of the year during this time period AND you get to experience fantastic hospitality. During December, many cities and towns host their Holiday Markets where visitors can take in local culture, crafts and culinary specialities. Having a glass of Spiced/Mulled Wine, a fresh Bratwurst and a piece of Gingerbread goes a long way in taking the chill out of a winter day!
