1. Hallstadt, Austria

How could I skip Austria from the list with it’s misty mountains? If you like hiking and planning an active holiday, Austria is a perfect choice for you. No matter which part of the country you choose, in the eastern Burgerland part, the wine-growing area, the view will be lovely for autumn walks. The rangy steuer area in the western part has an unforgettable view with it’s enchanting forests.  If you would like to breath the fresh air of the mountains I absolutely recommend Hallstadt. The region around Lake Hallstadt is a world heritage site and the scenery is like a real life postcard.

#BLOGPOST 🖋 We visited #Brugge just before Christmas, when this, probably the most popular small city in #Belgium, was flooded with people. 🌊As two persons who like to have all the places that we're exploring only for ourselves, we needed the solution how to explore wintery Brugge leaving all the crowds behind. And we found one! 🎉👏🏻We left #spectacular, but overloaded Brugge market square, and went for a walk alongside the canals. 👫👣These narrow and small rivers are like boundaries of the medieval Brugge old town, and offers a way to enjoy the astonishing city architecture quietly and without no one pushing you around. ☺🙌🏻 Stroll alongside them was the nicest moments of our time in Brugge. If you want to know more about our discoveries in festive Brugge check the new post on our #travelblog (LINK IN BIO)! 🤓✌🏻#TravelersChild #LoveTheWorld #IAmATraveler #TravelBelgium #VisitFlanders #BestCityBreaks #CBViews #TopEuropePhoto #Europe_Vacations

For those looking for less touristy places, Brugge, the capital of West Flanders, Belgium is a great choice. The canals and historic parts of the town make this destination a perfect romantic fall holiday choice. The town is fairly compact but that doesn’t mean you will be bored. There are a bunch of things to discover. The city center has been recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. And besides chocolate, waffles and beer the place is also famous of it’s handmade laces.

3. Prague, Czech Republic

The views from The Old Town Hall Tower were ones I had seen in pictures over and over. They were ultimately what made me curious about the city and desperate to visit. That dream finally came true just a couple weeks ago and my expectations of this romantic city were met. I think that's clear with how much I'm still gushing about it 😍It's keeping my wanderlust in check until we head to Paris ✨ . Climbing the tower was one of the many moments that made the weekend magical. It was tricky to escape the crowds but by early rises, using our mornings wisely, and finding hidden spots, we got to see the city more intimately. I hope there's many more visits here in the future. I'm confident we have more exploring to do! . Full recap of our three day weekend in Prague is up on the blog (link in bio). Learn how we escaped the crowds and where some quieter areas of the city are for a relaxing stroll. ____________ #ciaofabello #fabelloczechia

Medieval, enchanting, unforgettable…If I could choose what time of the year to visit Prague I would say fall without thinking. The mysterious scene of the Charles Bridge and the towers is like a screenshot from a 18th century romantic movie. Considering other capital cities in Europe, Prague is a smaller city but full of secrets and intriguing stories. Each season brings  an exciting feeling to the city, but the atmosphere will surely be memorable if you discover the place in October-November.

4. Nürnberg, Germany

Another hidden gem for those who would rather avoid the crowd. Allow yourself to stay overnight in smaller villages as well to see the magic of these tiny treasures. Meet Albrecht Dürer one of the most famous painter in history and feel the medieval touch of the village. If you hang out in town in the evening indulge in Bavarian food and have a beer  while enjoying the atmosphere!
