Everything is so close

Clock up those km’s
The best way to see and get around any European city is to walk! You may just discover some hidden gems that you wouldn’t have seen stuck underground on the metro.

Learn the local language
Learn a few phrases and it will get you extra points with the locals! Ein bier bitte comes in handy in Germany and especially at Oktoberfest!
