The Thirty Most Picturesque Winter Towns From Around The World
Rothenburg ob der Tauber is an incredibly well preserved medieval old town that every winter transforms into something that resembles a fairytale. Mt Buller is one of the few places in Australia that actually see frequent snowfall. This beautifully snow-capped mountain region is popular with bikers, skiers, snowboarders, and hikers. Surrounded by mountain paths, El Chaltén is popular with trekkers during the summer. During winter, the town is pretty much deserted - with only the most experienced walkers taking on the cold. Queenstown is built around the beautiful Lake Wakatipu, which has spectacular views of surrounding mountains including Walter Peak and The Remarkables. Naarden is a town built within a star fort, complete with fortified walls and a moat. Sheltered by picturesque mountains, Bled was founded in 1004 and considered so beautiful by the Holy Roman Emperor that it was gifted to the Bishop of Brixen. If you've ever wanted to escape humanity, this is the place.
