Do European windows freeze in the winter?

We have really harsh winters and I wonder if European windows are going to freeze. What has been your experience?

    If single pane glass, yes they can freeze! I personally love the ice crystal patterns on the window - but it's not energy efficient.

    Dual and triple pane glass is used a lot in newer homes. If really cold winters are expected, triple-pane is used to reduce heat loss and prevent freezing on the glass.

    Depends on what you mean by "freezing".

    If you mean watervapour turning into ice ("ice-flowers") on the glass surface, yes they do

    Europe goes from pretty much the Arctic Circle to the Mediterranean, you'll have to narrow it down a bit.
