Indulging in a bit of air sports, paragliding and such, is an absolute yes-yes. Skiing too should be somewhere on the checklist. For those looking at enjoying a languid day, visit the spas and wellness centres that have steam inhalation, massages and mineral water baths among other treatments on offer. Hiking, visiting the many museums and churches are a few other touristy things that will give you memories to cherish for a lifetime.

Mount Saentis, Innsbruck and the Matterhorn mountain are some of the places you shouldn't miss if you are planning for a Euro trip for the winters.
