Ideal trips for a pandemic Christmas

Despite the pandemic, or perhaps precisely because of it, it has awakened a Christmas obsession to take a trip outside Catalonia. Backoffice manager Marifé Fariñas recommends three special places to celebrate winter.


The desire to travel has been unleashed. Without going any further, during the Purísima long weekend, a record number of 692 flights were scheduled. Last year there were only 186. And until Thursday there will be 4,254 operations, a third of them to international destinations. Once again, the queues have returned to the airports, but what typical Christmas places can we visit?

  • Santa Claus’ house in Rovaniemi. This trip to Lapland (Finland) will not only delight the little ones, but will also take you back to childhood. You can visit Santa Claus’ house, visit the Arctic Circle, eat hot salmon soup in a small village made of ice, go on sleigh rides or even hand-deliver your Christmas letter.
  • Europe’s most famous Christmas markets. The best known are in Tallinn (Estonia), Prague (Czech Republic), Vienna (Austria), Budapest (Hungary), Nuremberg (Germany) and Strasbourg (France). At these traditional markets, you can buy Christmas items, but above all you can taste pastries and the famous mulled wine. In addition, there are often skating rinks and traditional dances and concerts. 
  • New York, the city that never sleeps. The capital of the United States at Christmas time is a never-ending dream. A visit to the Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center with its ice rink, the shop windows on Fifth Avenue, the beautifully decorated houses in Brooklyn and the famous musicals is a must.

11Onze is becoming a phenomenon as the first Fintech community in Catalonia. Now, it releases the first version of El Canut, the super app of 11Onze, for Android and Apple. El Canut, the first universal account can be opened in Catalan territory.

    Encara que no l’esmentes, a Varsòvia també es fa, amb els mateixos ingredients. Si es pot, val la pena viatjar per les festes
