Time.com says that when the temperature drops, there's a special appeal to hightailing it to Europe, where the art form of coziness has been perfected over the course of a few thousand winters. There's no winter like a European winter-especially in these towns.

London

According to nz.lifestyle.yahoo.com, London weather gets a bad rap and as soon as the temps hit the low 20s, locals are out sunbaking but wintertime is magical in this city. Rug-up and take a walking tour through the East End or head out for a curry and pint at a local tavern and you'll find a new appreciation for winter in the UK.

Åre, Sweden

There are more than 100 powdery ski runs, or you can navigate the slopes by snowmobile or dogsled with its snow-covered peaks, café-lined town square, and red-hot après-ski scene, this mountain resort in northern Sweden is the Aspen of Scandinavia.

Prague

Prague is stunning in summer but she's even more beautiful when the snow falls, coating the historic streets. If you get too cold, grab a hot chocolate like no other. Made of thick melted chocolate with a dollop of whipped cream, it is the stuff of diet nightmares.

Vals, Switzerland

You don't come to this tiny village in the Swiss Alps to ski. Instead of perfectly groomed pistes, you'll find a wonderland for design buffs. Built from sparkling gray blocks of Vals quartzite, Pritzker Prize winner Peter Zumthor's austerely beautiful Therme Vals houses a warren of steamy hammams and flower-strewn pools.

Salzburg

The hills are definitely alive in Salzburg at any time of the year. During winter, snow covered mountains, theatrical buildings, cobbled streets and horse drawn carriages make this city a must see in the winter months. Add in the renowned Christmas markets and you have a winner on any list.

These winter wonderlands would definitely make us love the winter even more. Make sure to include these places on your winter travel bucketlist.
