Nowhere does winter like Germany. Hot mugs of gluhwein, picturesque streets covered in dustings of snow, and of course, those Christmas markets.
Today’s Big Deal transports you to an undiscovered Bavarian gem. It has a stunning Medieval Old Town, tiny canals lined with bars and restaurants, and a Christmas market in the main square.
The town’s name is Memmingen and today’s Big Deal takes you directly there with flights from Edinburgh and three night’s accommodation.
The Big Deal from Myholidaysnow flies you directly to Memmingen with Ryanair from Edinburgh Airport, and provides three nights accommodation in a standard double or twin room at the 3* RiKu Hotel.
The city breaks are for three nights, flying out from Edinburgh Airport on the following dates in 2018 and 2019:
10th, 17th and 24th November.
12th, 19th and 26th January.
In November, outbound flights leave Edinburgh at 13:35 and arrive in Memmingen at 16:50. Inbound flights leave Memmingen at 17:15 and arrive at 18:30.
Flights in the later months will be confirmed at booking.
RiKu Hotel located in the centre of Memmingen just a few steps away from the train station.
The hotel is in the heart of the Old Town, minutes’ walk away from all the Medieval squares, towers and churches of the area.
The rooms in the hotel have free WiFi access, a flat screen TV and a private bathroom with a hairdryer.
Fairytale Bavarian town
Memmingen looks like it’s been lifted from the pages of a fairytale, with pretty squares, Medieval towers and narrow canals.

And from September to March there is an open air ice rink for visitors to enjoy.
There are also lots of traditional Bavarian pubs in which to enjoy a stein.
This Big Deal for a trip to Memmingen would make a perfect pre Christmas or post Christmas break.
With summer over, give yourself something to look forward to by booking this winter escape.
With flights and accommodation taken care of, all you’d need to focus on is having the best, wintriest, cosiest time possible.
