Have a week off in October lads and I wouldn't mind getting away for a bit. Is there any point in even trying to visit more than one or two cities? Any highly concentrated areas in Europe where there is plenty to see in such a short time? I'm thinking maybe Netherlands or Germany
If you stay in The Netherlands or Belgium, you can easily go to Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Utrecht, Brugge, Ghent, Antwerp or Brussels. They're all well-connected by public transport and the distances are quite short. So take your pick. You could even do a city a day, but then you'd definitely miss a lot.
An alternative would be seeing Vienna and Bratislava or maybe Vienna and Budapest.
Ljubljana and Zagreb is also an option.
Munich and Salzberg can be done as well.
That's all with relatively short distances.
Sounds good. I'm not really tempted by Belgium 2bh, leaning more towards Central Europe. What's the party scene like in Vienna? I like the sound of Bratislava and Budapest but I don't know much about Vienna. I do know it's a beautiful city though so it will certainly be on the shortlist. Would Prague-Vienna-Bratislava sound like a viable trip? Or Vienna-Bratislava-Budapest? I also like the sound of Krakow.
I wouldn't discard Belgium. Brugge, Ghent, Brussels and Antwerp are very nice and Belgium quite simply has the best beer in the world.
I've only been to Vienna by day, so I don't know the party scene. I was staying in Bratislava and from there Vienna is just an hou by train. So we took a day trip. Bratislava does have a nice party scene, and Budapest an even better one. Cheap as well.
I spent some time in Krakow last summer. Great place!
