I recommend Lubeck, in northern Germany, as a short break destination. It’s a very attractive Hanseatic city, encirled by a canal and a river. It’s also close to the seaside at Travemunde. There are several attractions for kids such as the puppet museum. The traditional Christmas market and craft fair runs from the end of November.
