Europe Solo for 1 Week-- Where to Go?

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone! I will be going to Europe for 1 week solo in early to mid July 2015. I am looking for advice as to where in Europe to travel. I am 24, and this will be my first trip to Europe, and also my first solo adventure.

Here are some of my qualifications:

It cannot be in England, France, or Italy. As much as I would love to visit these countries, I want to experience them for the first time when everyone in my family is able to go.

I'd like to go to a city that's on the more affordable side (in European terms of course). Since I'll only be in the city for 5 full days, I thought a smaller city might be a good idea. I also want a city that has plenty of sightseeing and history. This was my initial itinerary:

Amsterdam, with day trips to Brussels and Cologne.

My only concern with this is that there might not be enough to do in Amsterdam that doesn't involve nightlife. I'm not a prude, but I don't drink, smoke, party, etc., nor do I plan to visit the Red Light District. Amsterdam appeals to me because of the canals, Anne Frank House, Van Gogh Museum, architecture, etc.

Some other cities I was considering are Berlin, Pargue, or a city or 2 in Scandinavia. Does anyone have any ideas?? Sorry that was so long. I look forward to talking with you all!
