Berlin is another one of the best city breaks in Europe to visit with its fascinating history, street art and music, as well as its great nightlife, all making it a city break like no other.

Prague is often considered to be one of the most beautiful and charming cities in Europe with plenty of things to do and see to keep you busy on a 3 night city break. If you head there on a winter city break you may be lucky enough to see the Gothic spires covered in snow. A visit to Prague’s Old Town Square is a must and it is home to amazing sights like the famous Astronomical Clock. If you do decide to go on a Prague city break then be sure to try Trdelník, also known as a Chimney Cake, which is dessert heaven!

Amsterdam is a perfect city break destination no matter what time of year it happens to be. This stunning city is best explored by bicycle but a canal boat tour of the city is also recommended. If you’re hoping to visit Anne Frank’s House be sure to get your tickets well in advance. Visit some of the famous museums like the Van Gogh Museum, the Rijksmuseum and the Stedelijk Museum and relax in Vondelpark afterwards.
