Last summer I decided to go on a small road trip through Europe. I had no job at that time and because I had some money saved, I was able to go. Copenhagen was really high on my bucket list, so I decided this was the perfect time to go. I had been to Denmark twice before, but never to Copenhagen. Maybe that was the reason why I really wanted to visit this city, but I have to say my visit was definitely worth it. I really loved the atmosphere is this city and it feels really modern, even though it has its historical sights. I’ve made a top five list of things you definitely need to do in Copenhagen. So here you go! Continue Reading
Because of the fact I didn’t plan anything for this summer and of the fact my boyfriend is away for two weeks, I really wanted to do something with my time. Now as you know, I love to travel, so I decided to search for something on a budget. Plane tickets are quite expensive in peak season, so I searched for an alternative and found a bus company which travels through Europe. The bus tickets are really cheap and all the way to Luxembourg I only pay €127,-. In Luxembourg I will meet my boyfriend and we have the last couple of days together in Luxembourg and Bruxelles. So what am I planning to do and to see on my Europe roadtrip?
Bremen: 1 day (layover stop, otherwise it was such a long bus ride)
• St. Petri Dom
• Haus der Bürgerschaft
I only have one day in Bremen, so I’m going to walk through the city and try to see as much as possible.
Copenhagen: 4 days
• Church of Our Saviour
• The Little Mermaid
• Amalienborg Palace (at 11.27 o’clock)
• National Museum and/or Geological Museum
• Renting a bike
• Free walking tour
• Shopping in Strøget
• Visit alternative Christiania (Maybe)
And if I have on day left, I will go to Malmö. This is a city in Sweden and it’s only 25 minutes by train away from Copenhagen.
Berlin: 4 days
• Berliner wall + search for streetart (East Side Gallery)
• Charlottenburg Palace
• Berliner Dom
• Renting a bike
• Going to the ‘Teufelsberg’
• Topographie des Terrors (museum)
• Fernsehturm (TV tower with an amazing sight of the city)
I’ve been already in Berlin a few years ago. So the most touristic attractions I have seen already, so I’m not going to visit that all again. I want to explorer the city more and don’t plan as much. I just want to feel the city vibe.
Frankfurt: 2 day
• Alte Oper
• Visit the Main Tower
In Luxembourg I will meet my boyfriend again and we’ll have our holiday together. So those days depends also on him what he wants to do, so those things below are only a guide line for those days. But maybe if we don’t want to do anything or we just want to shop or something, we do that.
Luxembourg: 3 days
• Chemin de la Corniche
• Cour Grand-Ducale de Luxembourg
• Cathédrale Notre-Dame-de-Luxembourg
• Visit Kazematten
Bruxelles: 4 days
• European Parlement
• Courthhouse of Bruxelles
• Cathedral van Sint-Michiel en Sint-Goedele
• The ‘Grote Markt’ (translate; big market)
• One day to a tropical swimming pool (Oceade)
This is just a guide line for me what I’m going to do the next couple of weeks. Some things I won’t do and probably I will do other things too. Traveling is about enjoyment and doesn’t need to be planned perfectly. Now I just have the highlights of the cities all in one post. So it’s easy for me to decide what I want to do, if I have ‘nothing’ to do. After this trip I will tell you what I did in each city and what I recommend to do if you are there.
My trip starts tomorrow, so if you want to be up-to-date about my trip, please follow me on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. I’ll update as much as possible, so you get a great impression of the cities! Do you have other recommendations for things to do or to see in those cities?
Even though it’s not sure yet, my boyfriend and I are planning a roadtrip to Belgium and France this year. In April we bought a ‘new’ car, so that’s why I came up with the idea to do a roadtrip this year. As I said, it’s not sure yet. We want to go on a vacation this summer, but we also want to save money for our trip next year (Thailand!). As a kid I always went on a ‘car vacation’ and I went many times to France (at least 10 times!). So I thought it’s time to go back to this lovely country and hit the road with our new car! I already made a list with 13 road essentials and now I’m going to share those essentials with you. Continue Reading
