Like Romeo and Juliet in Verona
The famous love story of Romeo and Juliet took place in Verona. The couple experienced a romance that could not be more romantic, but also sad.

Besides the traces of Romeo and Juliet, the old town with its small hidden alleys and picturesque streets exudes a romantic charm.
Vienna - the pearl of Europe
In the past, Vienna was considered the center of music and composers like Mozart and Beethoven played at the Austrian court. The city is full of beautiful sounds, culture and art that you can discover together. Pick a nice hotel and start your day by getting to know the Viennese coffee house culture and enjoy togetherness with a breathtaking ride on the Ferris wheel overlooking the beautiful city. Weather permitting, you can stroll through the gardens of Schönbrunn Palace and feel like Sissi and Emperor Franz.
Prague - the Paris of the East
The capital of the Czech Republic is one of the most popular in Europe and not without reason! Here you can explore over 1000 years of history and discover a beautiful old town with its baroque and gothic elements. Especially in the evening, when the city is bathed in the golden light of the sunset, the city nestled in the rolling hills of the Vltava River shines. In Prague, you can also discover the world's largest enclosed castle complex, which is located on Hradčany Hill.
Bruges is a city like no other and looks like something out of a picture book. If you love strolling through small streets together, you'll love Bruges. The charming old town is a UNESCO heritage site and strolling through the historic old town will make you feel like you've stepped back in time to the Middle Ages. Many old buildings have fortunately been spared from wars and destruction. Ancient patrician houses, old brick buildings with typical Flemish gables, cobblestone streets and hidden alleys are just waiting to be discovered by you, because the whole of Bruges is like an open-air museum. You can get some delicious Belgian waffles in one of the many cafés for refreshment... or would you prefer some of the famous Belgian chocolate from one of the chocolatier shops?
Gdansk - Baltic charm on the Baltic Sea
