When people begin to bust out the gloves in colder climes, the best season for beach vacations has begun in sunny Tulum, where the weather remains stable until January and rain is rare. With its beautiful sandy beaches, Tulum is ideal for a relaxing getaway. But the spot on the Riviera Maya also scores in terms of culture and culinary delights. Can't miss: a visit to the Mayan ruins, a dive into a cenote and a drink at Arca Bar. Tulum has numerous highlights up its sleeve.

Let's be frank: It's never warm in Iceland. But even by Icelandic standards, the island is probably one of the coolest destinations in November. So why go now? Because thanks to the clear and dark November nights, you have excellent chances to see auroras. The green veils dancing in the night sky are an extraordinary phenomenon. Now, we can't guarantee aurora borealis sightings for certain, but you'd have to be pretty unlucky to not see any northern lights.

London is supposed to be one of the best destinations in November? Yes! Hardly any city is as romantic in the run-up to Christmas as the city on the Thames. However, winter wonderlands, festive lights and the like also mean numerous tourists. So it's best to arrive right after the "lightswitch," which usually takes place at the beginning of November and marks the day when the city is illuminated in festive lights for the first time. Then it's off to afternoon tea, shopping at Harrod's and sightseeing. And the weather? It's always fickle in London anyway. But thanks to the Gulf Stream, it never gets all too cold.

"Go now or Cuba will be history ..." a phrase we've been hearing for years. Granted, the gentrification of Cuba is well underway. But the old town of Havana, for example, still enchants with its colorful buildings that date back to the Spanish colonial era. The streets are also still populated by American cars from the 1950s. And that slightly ramshackle charm is still omnipresent. In November, you can fill up on joie de vivre and sunshine as well as a large portion of "vitamin sea."

Thanks to its location – surrounded by desert – Las Vegas is one of the best destinations in November par excellence. During the day, you can explore the surrounding sights in just a T-shirt. The Hoover Dam, the Grand Canyon in Arizona, the Valley of Fire State Park, Death Valley and one or two ghost towns make for quite the diverse itinerary. And in the evening, you can enjoy yourself at the casino, one of the numerous shows or the many fun spots of Sin City. New sights and attractions are constantly being added. Currently, for example, the immersive experience Area15 is particularly popular.
