Where to go in ChristmasHello,
I am just getting out of a bad experience and I want to spend my vacation in a nice city in Germany. I need somewhere where I can see culture, historical places, enjoy nature and also have some possibility to go to operas or theaters at nite.
Any recommendations on which city could suit those needs, it should also be safe and not too expensive.
Thanks for the advice

1Well...there are quite a few cities that have all of that.Munich and Berlin are two very obvious examples...
Safety depends far more on you,your preparation and behaviour than on which city you choose.
As for 'not too expensive'....can you be a bit more specific? How much can you spend per day?

4Which airports are feasible for you? Dresden(530'000) and Freiburg(230'000) come to my mind, but both have only small airports so you'll maybe have some extra travel time from Berlin or Frankfurt. Both towns have mountains nearby within a 30 minutes train ride and offer history and culture. The weather forecast predicts mild weather. The most probable areas for white Christmas are normally in the east(Berlin, Dresden(still 5 cm snow today but melting), sometimes also south east Regensburg, Passau). But nobody can guarantee.
Other options which are nearer to Frankfurt airport: Mainz(200'000), Würzburg(130'000), Heidelberg(150'000)
If you want to go the theater or opera please book in advance or at least buy some hours before the event. In my home town, the theater is quiet full in December.
The inhabitants in the () are just for orientation. I guess towns below 100'000 don't have enough events going on.
