Europe Travel Guide

As I was born in Germany, Europe was the first continent I’ve explored. And while I have yet to visit every single European country, I can say that is such a rich continent with its ancient history and imposing buildings.

Europe consists of 44 countries and every single one has its own traditions, dishes, and even architectural style. It is an amazing continent to explore.

Wander along old cobblestone streets in Germany, explore the Colosseum in Italy, hike in Norway, and eat paella at a beach in Spain. The choice is yours!

Things to know before you travel to Europe


Most countries that are part of the European Union are also a part of the Schengen Area. Therefore getting a visa for one of the 26 Schengen countries allows you to cross the borders without having to obtain additional visas. The Schengen Visa allows a stay of 90 days within a 180 days period. There are visa exemptions for citizens of many countries, so it is best to check if you have to apply for a Schengen Visa.

All countries that are not part of the Schengen area have their own visa requirements. If you plan to travel to the United Kingdom, Ireland, Croatia, Romania, Turkey, and other countries in Eastern Europe, you should look up the requirements on the website of your nearest embassy.
