What to Wear: Leggings in Europe?

Jump to last reply

So this may be a dumb question. but I'm trying to decide what to pack for a backpacking trip through Europe (mostly through Germany, Salzburg, Prague, Amsterdam, and Brussels).

I know I need other cloths, but for everyday site seeing I really want to wear athletic leggings (I pretty much live in them at home).

Is this acceptable in Europe? I know people make fun of them in America but it's not considered completely weird to wear them. It would just be for like museums and traveling and such, I'll bring jeans or something nicer that's light for other things.

If not athletic leggings, are other leggings acceptable? Is it only ok if I wear something long over? Or are leggings inappropriate in the countries I mentioned no matter what?

Thanks for your help!
