From Norway’s majestic mountain setting, to Copenhagen’s café scene. We’ll do things at a level 10, then float casually in between. A brewery tour, some cycle days, & plenty of boutique clubs. We’ll go deep on four grand cities, lifting the lid on these cultured hubs.
Ready and raring for a banquet of cultural travel, we’ll round up in Germany’s chic capital. With more museums than rainy days per year, Berlin is a place worth knowing about.
Today we can cruise Berlin the vintage way, taking a tour in the official cars of the DDR. When hunger strikes, the carnivores could spend some time differentiating bockwurst from kinderwurst from fleischwurst. Meanwhile the more vegan inclined could sample a jackfruit burger or cashew bolognese at the solar powered organic hotel of Amaranth.
If yesterday’s independent food roamings whet the appetite for something more substantial, then todays offer of a progressive food tour should provide ample satisfaction. Later you could let kilos settle by sipping tea in a palace at the Tajik Tearoom, or by walking the abandoned building of Museumswohnung museum where you can see remnants of the communist era.
Berlin With a sidestep into Scandinavia on the agenda, leaving Berlin need not be a sad occasion. Grab your last sausage staples before we put our skates on & journey across land & sea to Denmark. Rostock We’ll arrive in Rostock on the banks of Germany, the port of our next transport via ferry. After a short stint on the Baltic Sea, we’ll start the slide up to Copenhagen. Copenhagen The capital of this fine Kingdom will greet us with open arms & ample pastries. As an introduction we’ll skyrocket our spirits with a trip to Tivoli, where a “pleasure garden” of roller coasters & carousels drag in almost 5million annual visitors.
Today we can go deep on the city’s streets, taking a bike tour in proper Danish fashion. With the health box ticked will have deserved a little indulging, a great time to pop by the Carlsberg Brewery. Those keen to see an alternative living hippie sphere can venture to Christiania & see the wild Pusher Street markets.
Today we can tap into the overflowing of gastronomic goodness in this city of trendy restaurants in idyllic locations. Also on today’s agenda will be a cruise of Copenhagen’s pretty canals, where pastel house facades meet rows of wooden motorboats.
Copenhagen Grab your final stash of glazed apple Danishes before we move on for Norway. The sweet waffle like treat of ‘krumkaker’ awaits us as replacement. Gothenburg En route to Norway we’ll cruise through Sweden, knowing our legitimate encounter with the country is just a few days away. We’ll kick on through the gorgeous Gothenburg, known for its enchanting pink streets during cherry blossom season. Oslo Vibes will be high on arrival in Norway, known for its natural beauty and summertime midnight sun. Tonight we can take a tour by tram, or keep things easy with a few akevitt for the purpose of tradition.
In the spirit of adventure, Oslo offers us a trip to the Ski Jump Museum. With the rest of the day, if you’re not coasting the streets on two wheels you could grab a smoothie bowl and stroll the vintage shops and boutiques of Grünerløkka.
Count your kronas & get your priorities in order, today offers a cruise into one of the most naturally stunning landscapes on the planet; Norway’s fjords. If unfathomable valley vistas don’t get you purring, food truck fish ‘n’ chips at Aker Brygge waterfront and meander the boardwalk to the architectural masterpiece that is Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art.
Having developed quite the crush on this cosy & quirky Scandinavian capital, we’ll drift due east in the direction of Stockholm. After journeying out of Norway & crossing the Klarälven River and sunny city of Karlstad, we’ll hop, skip & jump until we find ourselves in Stockholm. Pulling up in Stockholm you’ll have the chance for an authentic Swedish welcome, heading to an Ice Bar where we can drink Absolut Vodka. The first of three nights to soak up this city, we’ll have ticked the quintessential experience leaving the other night’s free for experimenting.
History buffs prepare to have your mind blown by visiting the Vasa Museum, which hosts the wreckage of a warship that sank in 1628, where it sat for 333 years before being rescued. Those not into history might be more musically inclined, with a trip to the ABBA Museum also on the agenda.
To toast our trip, we can take an evening cruise & see this archipelago of a city from a new vantage point. Don’t be afraid to kick on into the wee hours – after all, this is a place where eating crayfish is considered a good reason to get rowdy.
Hearts they be shattering this morning, as we wrap up our European expedition. We’ll leave feeling tremendously cultured, raring for our next succulent venture.
