Hello there, I'm looking to go somewhere in the North of Europe this November but I'm not really sure where yet. My main requirements are as follows:
-Plenty of culture/interesting things to do (not planning on getting wasted every night or anything like that)
-Quite Christmassy (I know it'll be November, but somewhere that's sort of Christmassy but isn't absolutely freezing cold would be nice)
-Not too far away (three or four hour flight is good)
I'm planning to go for a week with my father. Thanks for any ideas!

Berlin, perhaps? Lots and lots of cultural things to do - museums, art galleries, historical related stuff (and if that isn't enough, it's only a short train ride/drive to a number of other cities). Flights to Berlin can be got relatively cheaply, and you can stay there for a decent price. Only an hour flight I think.

Given how hard Iceland was hit by the financial crisis it would be safe to assume that they are probably somewhat cheaper than normal.

Germany (Berlin, Frankfurt) or Belgium! (Bruges or Brussels) They have awesome christmas markets and ice rinks. If you went much norther then that at Christmas time it would be absolutely freezing.

germany is known for it's christmas markets, Berlin has a lot to do/see and is relatively cheap compared to the other northern european countries.
