2. St. Moritz – Switzerland
If it’s luxury you’re looking for, then this is the perfect destination for you! You can try all winter sports here (including curling!) but there are also activities for summer vacations. And despite the cold weather, St Moritz is known for getting sunny days for 322 days per year, on average.
3. Cortina d’Ampesso – Italy
A touristic destination for winter sports enthusiast for over 100 years, this resort was home for the Winter Olympic games once. It’s a destination of choice for film makers all over the world, so you might even meet some Hollywood stars if you decide to visit!
4. Lech Zurs am Arlberg – Austria
You don’t really have to try to say that too many times. What matters most, though, is the fact that in 2004, it got the award of the Prettiest Village in Europe. A great place if you want to mix skiing with relaxation… and a traditional strudel afterwards!
5. Garmisch-Partenkirchen – Germany
And you thought that the previous one was difficult to say! Well, this resort is near the highest peak in Germany and it’s an amazing place for some winter shopping since it holds no less than 450 shops (even though the resort itself has a capacity of just 9,000 people). It was the host of the 2011 Alpine Skiing World Cup, so there’s definitely more than just shops there!
