Traveling to Europe
 
What nations in Europe are worth it to see? I am looking at the following:



Switzerland
Croatia

Germany
Austria
Italy
Poland
Slovakia
Scotland
Norway
Spain



With those in bold as my higher up picks.

Depends what your into would be a question. Have heard lots of good things about most of Europe, though no too sure with the insurection and mass movement of people due to that and how that might effect your trip.

Is there anything in particular you do or enjoy? Museums? Old greek architecture? Hiking? Skiing?

Switzerland is craaaazy expensive. So you'd better have a fat wallet when you go there. 11 euros for a kebab.

If you hit Croatia you should check out the lakes near Zagreb.
The water is insane. I was there last summer for a while. These pictures are not photoshopped. The water really is that blue.
Dubrovnik isn't really anything amazing. It's full of Game of Throne fans (it's where they film the King's Landing scenes) It's also quite expensive (tourist trap)

I lived in Berlin for a while a few years ago. It's nice for tourists. I prefer Koln though.

Stay away from Ireland, truth be told we are bitter hate filled grudge bearing xenophobes, we're great craic like, show you a good time but the former still stands!

Stay away from London like you would a syphalitic coke whore. They both enjoy the same level of personal hygiene, expensive taste and lingering feeling of filth.
Scotland's very nice though, as is Wales and I go on holiday in Yorkshire mostly.
Italy's quite expensive as I remember, especially around lake Garda.

Thanks for the help everyone and the pictures too!!

I am looking for peace and relaxation and a little bit of museums/sightseeing and for the culinary scene as well.

If you're going to Poland, Krakow is definitely worth a look. If you're travelling late Sept early Oct try to get to the Munich beer fest. Had one of the best weekends ever there. In Italy, Lake Garda in the north is stunning. Possibly one of the most beautiful places I've ever been. The Scottish highlands are also very cool. In Spain, the Basque Country is lovely. Can't really speak for the rest apart from some of the holiday resorts.

Norway and Switzerland, while I've never been, are supposedly extremely expensive.

I can't really sign off without recommending a stop in Ireland. Oldman is right, we can be a bitter bunch, but we're a welcoming bunch, and there's plenty to see and do. It can be a bit pricey, but with the exchange rates as they are you're ahead of the game.

Thanks much Khorne. I heard good things about Ireland despite the xenophobes stuff :)!

We're not really xenophobic. There are far more countries less tolerant of tyranids and Eldar than us.

Sorry if it came out wrong, I didn't mean that in a bad way. I have seen beautiful scenery from Ireland. :ok:
