Europe Travel Guide

Europe Travel Guide Continent Banner 1750x550 1

As I was born in Germany, Europe was the first continent I explored. And while I have yet to explore every European country, I can say that is a rich continent.

Europe consists of 44 countries and can be divided into various regions. Every single country has its own traditions, dishes, and even architectural style. It is a continent with an ancient history, incredible architecture, stunning nature, and cuisines. Therefore it is no wonder that 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. Alternatively, you can explore vibrant cities or see the Northern Lights in Scandinavia and Iceland. You are bound to find amazing things to do. 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.

When to visit Europe

Europe is an amazing destination year-round that offers a large range of activities for every time of the year. In summer you can enjoy the amazing beaches and Mediterranean climate. In winter you can witness the stunning Northern Lights in Lapland or Iceland.

The European climate can vary a lot. So be sure to look up the best time to visit your dream destination.

Also, consider visiting popular locations during the shoulder seasons as prices tend to be lower. Furthermore, it means that you will be less likely to wait in long lines. Hereby, the summer shoulder season is usually mid-May to June and September to October.

If you are traveling in winter and do not mind missing out on the many Christmas Markets, it is best to avoid December to mid-January. After all, the holiday season is a popular time for European travelers, which leads to steep prices and crowds.
