How could I skip Austria from the list with its 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 its enchanting forests.  If you would like to breath the fresh air of the mountains I absolutely recommend Hallstatt.

For those looking for less touristy places, Brugge, the capital of West Flanders, Belgium is a great choice.

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!
