5 European Cities To Visit By The End Of 2021

April 22, 2020

Before we begin, there needs to be a little disclaimer of sorts. As of writing this, much of the world is on lockdown, and there are travel restrictions in place. Until it is safe to travel, do not go anywhere! This post was originally going to look at cities to visit by the end of 2020, but I’ve extended it to 2021, given the current situation. 

Right, now that that’s out of the way, we can start looking at some of the best European cities to add to your bucket list over the next year or so:

Paris

Start your journey in one of the most legendary cities on planet earth. At the mere mention of the name, your mind wanders to quaint Parisian cafes overshadowed by the iconic Eiffel Tower. It’s a city that’s full of love, passion, and will never leave you bored. Food lovers will die happy here, and there are so many amazing museums to check out the best artwork from all over the world. It’s a multicultural place that entertains you in loads of different ways. If possible, try and get there during the summer months as the weather is a lot better than it is at other times!

Reykjavik

It’s the northernmost capital city in the world, and one of the best places to visit in Europe. Reykjavik is located in the small yet wonderful country of Iceland. There are tons of great things to see and do here – especially during the winter. It’s one of the few places to see the Northern Lights – and it also happens to be one of the best. The city itself is very unique and well worth walking around, but it also offers great activities slightly further out. If you’re in Iceland, then you absolutely have to go to the Blue Lagoon; it’s non-negotiable!

Munich

In truth, there are a host of excellent German cities you could visit. Berlin, Hamburg, and Nuremberg all offer some brilliant delights. However, Munich gets the nudge because it’s a beautiful city that blends history with modernity. It’s also a highly affordable place to visit. You can get a hotel in Munich for a very reasonable price in an excellent location. Still, the main reason it makes this list is that it’s home to some of the best Christmas markets. I know it’s early to be thinking about the holiday season – and who knows if you can even journey there this year. But, if you can get to Europe at Christmas, then visit the Munich markets as they are the best around.

Venice

Again, there are almost too many Italian cities to consider. Truthfully, this could’ve been a post dedicated to the best Italian cities for tourists. I genuinely think you should try and go to as many places in Italy as possible, purely because there are loads of unmissable things in this country. I’ve picked Venice for this list as it is very unique. This water-filled place is the stuff of dreams. You can literally spend a few days here just walking around the narrow streets and seeing the different canals. There are shops and cafes everywhere, and it’s a very romantic place at night. A sunset gondola ride is a perfect recipe for a romantic evening that you’ll never forget. 

London

The weather is pretty appalling for nine-tenths of the year, but London is undoubtedly a great spot for tourists. You’ve got a plethora of excellent tourist attractions to choose from – Buckingham Palace, The Tower of London, The London Eye, etc. There are museums aplenty as well, but one of the standout features has to be the food scene. London is a city that has grown into a multicultural hub over the last couple of decades. You will find loads of amazing street markets selling the very best food served up by locals. There’s basically a restaurant for every cuisine in this city, and life is made very easy by the convenient underground railway system. Also, if you’re lucky enough to get good weather, then London becomes even more pleasant. An abundance of large parks and waterways makes it an idyllic place to relax.

Simply writing this has given me the urge to pack my bags and travel once more. Of course, you’ll have to resist until things calm down. If you’re reading this in the future, and all travel bans have been lifted, then what are you waiting for? Book your flights and take a trip to Europe today!
