35. Berlin, Germany
Why you should go: Northern Europe is no picnic in the winter, but part of Berlin’s appeal is its nightlife. Dance all night at Berghain, set in an old power plant; Watergate, one of the longest-running electronic music clubs; or Griessmuehle, located in an old grain mill. Bonus: The colder it is, the shorter the lines!
Why it’s a steal: Fly to Berlin for a median airfare of $693, and book a room for an average nightly rate of $121, a savings of 14 percent over the fall months.
Where to stay: The Orania.Berlin opened just last summer in Kreuzberg, Berlin’s coolest, grittiest neighborhood. The hotel itself is pure luxury, with a top-floor salon and bar that hosts jazz concerts and other performances throughout the year. Rooms start at $169 per night.
