5x beautiful autumn citytrips

There’s no way around it: autumn is here. However, let's not forget that every season has something beautiful. Your bikini has made way for a warm sweater, but isn’t this just as good? Taking long walks and warming up by the fireplace afterwards: yes please! The autumn atmosphere is approaching and in all European cities this means a lot of coziness. SUITSUIT has listed five European cities where you have to experience autumn at least once. This might become reality as soon as it’s safe to travel again, but until then we like to dream about parks full of autumn colours, cozy streets and long walks (with that warm sweater!). 

Prague 
Autumn in Prague is like a fairytale. The city’s full of greenery, so the autumnal colours make the city extra cozy. You’ll even take the autumn rain for granted, because this also gives the city a magical atmosphere. In addition, it’s a lot quieter in the autumn months, so you no longer have to make your way through the tourists on the famous Charles Bridge. It’s also very nice to "zoom out" of the city and admire it from a distance. For example, you can take a walk on Kampa Island for a beautiful view of the Charles Bridge. It’s also worthwhile to climb the Letna Hill. From here you’ll have a breathtaking view of the Vltava River and its bridges.

Luxembourg
Luxembourg probably isn’t the first city you think of for your next city trip, but it should certainly be brought to the attention when it comes to autumn. The Luxembourg capital Luxembourg has a lot of green zones, which have the most beautiful colours in autumn. A visit to the Casemates of Luxembourg should therefore not be missed. A walk through these mystical underground galleries takes you to the view from "the most beautiful balcony in Europe". You’ll also find picturesque squares and cozy alleys in Luxembourg. It’s a cozy (and green) city with a lot to experience!

Edinburgh
Edinburgh is worth a visit all year round, but in autumn this Scottish city also colours in the most beautiful autumn tones. It’s a cozy city, where the cityscape is marked by 16th and 17th century buildings. You’ll also find the famous Edinburgh Castle there. This castle stands on top of Castle Rock, which has been inhabited since 800 BC (!). For a load of sunshine you shouldn’t be in Edinburgh, as the city has many rainy days. Fortunately, there’s enough to do for days like these. You can visit the Whiskey Heritage Center and the National Gallery of Scotland where you can easily get through the rainy days! In addition, there are plenty of pubs where you can take shelter with an English pint, which also isn’t so bad, right?

Copenhagen
Autumn means more hygge in Denmark! Fortunately, Copenhagen is full of cozy bars and cafes. Copenhagen is also the place to be for fun during rainy autumn weather. In the city you’ll find many art galleries and museums where you can wander for hours. For the foodies among us, there are also lots of food halls in Copenhagen where you can have lunch, dinner and snacks. The city also has many parks for a beautiful autumn walk between the falling leaves: Frederiksberg Have is perfect for this, because there are several hiking trails along beautiful nature.

Dublin
Everyone knows you shouldn't go to Ireland for sun-drenched days, but that doesn't mean we should immediately cross this country out when it comes to citytrips. The Irish capital Dublin offers enough for an autumn trip. The city is full of beautiful old buildings (where you can take shelter!) and cozy streets. Of course Dublin is also known for its typical pubs - you’ll find them on every corner. The rainy days really set the mood in this city - perhaps the city is at its best in autumn - and that's why it definitely shouldn’t be missing from this list!
