Mallorca - a top location also in winter
Mallorca in the high season is nothing new - but Mallorca in the off-season is a real insider tip: the tourist crowds are gone, the atmosphere is relaxed, the climate pleasantly mild. Boredom never comes up - not only thanks to Pyromanenparty and almond blossom. From September to May it is the island of culture, art, good food, green nature and traditional festivals. Some highlights around Palma in autumn and winter:
High art without having to wait: The Modern Art Museum in Palma not only offers colorful pictures of Picasso and Miró, who spent the last decades of his life on the island and bequeathed his artistic heritage. The view over the old town and the Castell de Bellver from the roof terrace are simply unique
The demons' pyromaniac party is just one highlight of the "Fiestas de San Sebastian" in mid-January: Drumming, howling and in the "Correfoc", the fire dance of the demons, sparkling with sparks, wild figures dance through the nocturnal streets of Palma. Put on old clothes and protect your head!
The annual almond blossom in January / February covers large parts of the island with 7 million almond trees - a truly remarkable natural spectacle and the perfect time to explore the island on a hike or bike ride. Or to take the historic train from Palma to Soller.
