i'm all out for oktoberfest or innsbruck christmas

christmas is near. and it's not even cold here. here where i live, it's hot and humid climate all year long. cold weather is totally out of the question. i missed the time in England when it snowed during christmas morning. just like in the movies. If i ever get the chance to spend my christmas day else where, i hope it'll be in either Berlin or Vienna.

Berlin has the largest and oldest Christmas Market in Stuttgart, it also is the most beautiful Christmas market in Europe. During the winter,they have the open ice-skating rink and also the famous concert in the Renaissance-style inner courtyard of the Altes Schloss. Not forgetting the world famous Oktoberfest!

Vienna on the other hand has the more historical arts and museums to offer such as the Museum of fine arts and modern arts. the main attraction for me is definitely Innsbruck, the capital of the Alps, i could go skiing in the snowy mountain. I wonder if the hotels in Vienna up the snowy mountain are affordable for someone like me.

the most important factor to consider before making a trip is to check and pre book the accommodation, what hotels in Berlin or hotel in Vienna has to offer. but as usual, best deals are always those you get online.
