Having come across this post, I wondering what cities/areas in Europe should be avoided in November/December.
For instance, I had originally planned to visit Scotland, but reading the official Scotland tourism website, they themselves even stated Scotland was not ideal to visit during winter, unless one intended on skiing.
I don't mean that one should avoid a city or area simply because it is cold. For instance, German Christmas markets are in themselves worth seeing and London is still visitable in the rain so long as one brings water-proof clothing.
There may be many reasons not to visit an area; one such factor could be terrible weather. As an extreme example, in the U.S., we have regions that have hurricane and tornado seasons -- not at all an ideal time to visit those locaitons. Thus, if an area simply has unbearable or even dangerous conditions during a certain time of the year, it would be worth noting. Referring back to the Scotland example, the vast majority of people visit Scotland (particularly the Scotland Highlands) to see nature and green, rolling hills -- I believe this is why their own website suggests not coming. On the other hand, Nov/Dec would be perfect for those who want to ski in Switzerland (or even hike if you enjoy hiking colder conditions), so snow and cold conditions wouldn't be a limiting factor. In other words, if it's a well known fact that people visit a certain area for a certain activity, but during Nov/Dec, weather or otherwise make it a not-so-ideal place to visit, then please do make note of it. Other examples may be that during Nov/Dec, some areas or closed or take time to remodel/reconstruct because it is the slow season.
Essentially, I'd like to know if there are areas would only provide a limited experience or areas that may be worth visiting at another time.
(And, of course, I don't expect any one post, or even the sum of all posts, to be an exhaustive list.)
I deleted the post as a more experienced user had stated it was too broad. I was hoping that even after finding a similar post, which was highly upvoted, was still able to receive answers. Even that post could have had many possibilities. Additionally, I even state that I do not expect an exhaustive list.
