“Old Europe” charm, trendy bars, beautiful lakes, museums and palaces and, of course, the beautiful Danube (not really blue …). There is plenty to do from Geneva to Budapest!
“Poor, but sexy”, Berlin is one of the most dynamic metropolises in Europe. Marked by history, it remains one of the great cultural centers of Europe. East-West, a mix of genres and cultures, Berlin can be visited without moderation, until the end of the night. A capital that has remained bohemian and that’s why we love it!
Famous for its splendid Unesco-listed cathedral, Cologne is a student and cosmopolitan metropolis. There are fascinating museums, fun walks to do in town or along the river, trendy bars and restaurants and above all an open and tolerant spirit … Easily accessible with the Thalys from Paris, a destination of choice for a weekend cultural or festive … or both!
Main tourist destination in Germany after Berlin, Munich combines rich heritage, cultural dynamism, modern architecture, and the sweetness of Bavarian life. Its fascinating museums (especially the art galleries) are in themselves worth the trip. In fine weather, the Biergarten and the English garden are havens of peace and indulgence.
Zurich is not just about its banks: it is a cosmopolitan city, where life is good, between lake and mountains. Its museums, such as the Kunsthaus, have rich art collections and the alleys of its old town are pleasant to walkers. Shop in Zurich West, a sort of local SoHo. Dance the night away to techno. You are not dreaming … you are in Zurich, enough to revise your photos!
Plebiscite for its quality of life, Geneva seduces with its natural setting on the shores of Lake Geneva, its heritage, the dynamism of its cultural life, and its beautiful balance between nature and town planning. All this, just 3 hours from Paris by TGV Lyria.
Whether you are waltz or techno, baroque or art nouveau, coffee addict, or wine lover, Vienne will have you covered. Far from the Sisi-style blazes, the former imperial capital has become a cosmopolitan city, now combining tradition and innovation. In this metropolis punctuated by many green spaces and crossed by the Danube, there are even vineyards in the city!
Prague, “the magical capital of Europe”, did not only inspire André Breton and the surrealists. Nestled in the meanders of the Vltava, this UNESCO-listed city is one of the most romantic in the world. Monuments, facades, and statues tell a turbulent story in which the shadows of Golem, Mucha or Kafka hover. Something to stimulate the imagination …
Budapest is, first of all, an exceptional melting pot of Central European architecture. But the “Pearl of the Danube” is also a dynamic city with a renowned nightlife, with its famous “ruin pubs” and trendy clubs, which attract young people from all over Europe. Ideal for a cultural, festive, and exotic city break, a 2 and a half hour flight from France!
Capital of the Polish heart, Krakow is full of churches, museums, and palaces in a tremendous array of styles, from Gothic to Baroque. This student city, one of the most beautiful in Central Europe, also has a number of cool cafes and restaurants, most of them in the Jewish quarter of Kazimierz. What are you waiting for to go there?
