Non-Touristy Things To Do In Europe

By  | 

One of the greatest pleasures in life is travelling, whether that is going abroad or taking a train to the next city, and undoubtedly, most people tend to avoid overly ‘touristy’ hotspots; so instead of constantly turning up to crowded places, why not start heading towards the best hidden gems available in Europe? If you are anywhere in the area, or if you are planning on travelling somewhere in Europe, then make sure you head to one of the following places that will surely create amazing memories!

South Coast of Iceland

This is home to stunning natural wonders, including the impressive waterfalls Seljalandfoss and Skogafos, so do not miss out the chance to walk behind the waterfalls and ending up on a path to visit Gljufurarbui, known as the Secret Falls.

Stargazing in Scotland at the Cairngorms National Park

With charming villages around you and a hiking trail within the park, there is no better place to stargaze at night. Bring along some equipment or some something second-hand to enjoy this experience.

British History in York of England

The medieval capital of Northern England should be on everyone’s bucket list, because not only has this city been on the site of York for nearly 2,000 years now, making it one of 12 cities in England that are so old that they pre-date records, but there are a lot of must-see sights such as The Shambles too, which was what inspired ‘Diagon Alley’ in the Harry Potter films.

Quint Coffee in Freudenberg, Germany

This is a small medieval fairy tale town in the German province of North Rhine-Westphalia. One of the most fascinating things about this town is that there is not much to do except stroll, have coffee and pastries, and spend time outdoors in the open. It is so fairy tale-like and so charming that your experience will no doubt be cute and interesting when visiting here.

Guernsey for the World-Famous Ice Cream

Guernsey, part of the Channel Islands off the coast of France, is worth your attention, as it is famous for its ice-cream and cows. With the high butterfat and protein levels in their milk, they produce some of the most delicious ice cream in the world, so make sure you pop in to Café Délices in St. Peter Port to sample flavours.

Visiting new places can be fascinating by itself, but making memories in specific locations of the country or city can be even better, so make sure you are paying attention to what the locals are doing , and you too will soon feel like a part of the community!
