“… But unless the child in you is entirely dead, it is snow, too, that can make the heart beat faster when it catches you by surprise that way, before your defenses are up. It is snow that can awaken memories of things more wonderful than anything you ever knew or dreamed.” ― Frederick Buechner
Winter in Europe: Favorite Places and Photographs
I love Europe in the winter.
There is something magical about European winters. Something about ice skaters filling a small town’s central pond, enchanting architecture sparkling beneath a pixie dust snow, the mountains and the grandeur of the Alps, the Christmas Markets and the rhythm of the people as they go about their lives, and the sheer beauty of it all.
Over the four years my family and I lived in Europe, we traveled throughout much of central Europe in the winter. This winter amidst the huge amounts of snow falling on our new home in the American Midwest, I’ve been sorting through some of my favorite photos of our time in Europe.
Thanks for scrolling through and discovering some of the favorite places I traveled in the winters in Europe, including Czech Republic, Italy, Austria, Poland, and Germany. All of the following are places I’m grateful to have captured through the lens of my camera. Undoubtedly, they will stay in my heart and mind forever.
If you’ve traveled in Europe in the winter, please share your favorite places here in the comments as well. Thank you and happy travels!
