This isn't strictly a road trip question, but I know this forum is the best option when you don't know what country you want to visit!
I've been asked for some advice by my Australian cousins, they are returning to Ireland for Christmas and want to spend a few days on the continent. Their main interests are seeing a Christmas market and introducing their kids to snow for the first time! The kids are ten year old twins and a five year old, so they would be thinking sledding/snowmen rather than skiing or snowboarding.
I know guaranteed snow can be hard to find in December, my first thought was Munich with possible day trips to the Alps and Salzburg. How does that sound? Is there somewhere within a couple of hours drive that they could partake in snow activities?
Or any other suggestions that would combine markets and snow?
Thanks in advance.
