Top city-sightseeing on a budget
Interrailing is a fantastic way to see Europe without breaking the bank, especially as travelling is seen as a rite of passage for so many people. Here are seven of the best cities to visit on the way.
1. Paris, France
Undeniably one of Europe’s greatest cities and filled with instantly recognisable landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower and the Arc de Triomphe, you could easily sight-see for days on end.
2. Amsterdam, Holland
Known as the ‘Venice of the North’ due to its many canals, for those culture vultures amongst you, Amsterdam is a fine choice to make a pit stop. Full of museums such as Van Gogh and Rembrandt House Museum, you could end up as an art expert in no time.
3. Prague, Czech Republic
Prague is a stunning city and for those who are camera-happy there are fantastic attractions to see such as the astronomical clock and the statues lined up alongside Charles Bridge, which are sure to keep you snapping away on that Polaroid.
4. Berlin, Germany
With a vast array of clubs and bars in the city, Berlin has earned a reputation for being one of the best places in Europe for a night out (or two).
5. Zagreb, Croatia
Zagreb is a vibrant place with a buzzing cafe culture. Don't miss Zagreb’s museum of contemporary art, home to both iconic Croatian work and international work by highly renowned artists such as Picasso and Dali.
6. Bratislava, Slovakia
This city, at the heart of Europe, has a growing reputation amongst travellers, with bizarre activities such as bridge swinging on offer on the River Danube. This is extreme, adrenaline pumping sport, will make Bratislava one city you will find hard to forget.
7. Vienna, Austria
With a fabulous mix of architecture, past and present, Vienna is a picturesque city. By day the historic Prater Amusement Park is a great place to visit or why not head next door to Madame Tussauds Waxwork Museum. By night the Vienna Opera House is a fantastic place to watch the sublime Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra play. After all it is known as the 'City of Music'.
