What are the best things to do in Lithuania?

When we planned our trip to the Baltics, I spent a lot of research trying to find the best places to visit. For Lithuania, I already had a rough idea since I knew I wanted to see my great-great-grandmother’s hometown. And Vilnius, being the capital, seemed like an easy choice.

But for the rest? At that point, I didn’t know much about Lithuania, so I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. You’re probably in a similar situation, wondering where to go and how to spend your limited time. Fortunately, we’ve done all the research and travelled the country, so we can now share the highlights of Lithuania with you.

Are you looking for the best things to do in Riga?

When travelling to Riga, you can expect a stunning medieval Old Town, cobblestone streets, lots of history and delicious food. And the best part? Latvia’s capital hasn’t made it onto the radar of everyone yet, which means that you’ll find fewer crowds than in many Western European cities.

As Riga has a lot to offer, it can be challenging to choose what to do. We have tried and tested the highlights of Riga, so you don’t have to spend hours researching for yourself. Keep on reading, and you’ll learn everything about what to do in this fantastic city.…

Are you in Frankfurt for one day and have no idea what to do?

Even though Frankfurt has a lot to offer, the city has a reputation for being a destination for business travellers only. It’s known for its banks and its airport, but did you know that there’s a lot more to discover? You can find so many amazing places to visit in Frankfurt that you could easily spend a few days here.

If you only have one day, you should focus on seeing the highlights. Therefore, we have put together this itinerary with the most amazing things to do in Frankfurt in one day.…

Lithuania

While exploring the Baltics, we quickly came to the conclusion that we were travelling through one of the most underrated corners of Europe. Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania don’t get nearly the amount of tourists that they deserve. And if people travel here, they will stick to Tallinn and maybe Riga.

But what about Vilnius?

We started our trip in the Lithuanian capital and quickly found out that there were lots of things to do in Vilnius. With only two days available to explore the city, we were rushing from one place to another to take in as much as possible. Narrow cobblestone streets, stunning churches, a castle only a quick bus ride away…

Vilnius has so much to offer that you can easily spend a few days here.…

Germany

Frankfurt is one of those cities where travellers pass through but rarely stop. Or where people will spend a few hours and leave again.

This is a shame. After having lived there for more than two years, we can safely say that there are lots of things to do in Frankfurt. From museums to bars, historic centres and green areas – no matter what you prefer, you will find it here.

Plus, with one of Europe’s biggest airports just a short train ride away, you’ll find it very easy to get here. And once you’ve dived into the city, you’ll notice that it’s going to be hard to leave.

Here are the best things to see in Frankfurt.…

Europe

I love Christmas markets.

Every year at the end of November, I get excited about the upcoming Christmas market here in Frankfurt. The lights, the food, going out with friends – there are so many things I love about the market.

If you’re visiting Europe in December, you should visit at least one Christmas market. Which one? Well, that’s up to you. Each of them is unique in their own way and we assure that you’ll have a good time. But to help you choose, we’ve asked fellow travel bloggers to tell us about their favourite European Christmas market.…

Budget

One type of post we both find very useful is budget posts. When trying to figure out how much money we need to save for a trip, it’s helpful to see how much other travellers have spent. That’s also why we keep a detailed record of our expenses – we want to know how expensive different countries are.

The same applied when we went to the Baltics. We wrote down every single cent we spent. And now we’d like to share this budget with you. Hopefully, it will help you plan your own trip.

We’ll also be sharing lots of great advice on how to save money, so you don’t have to break your bank for travelling to the Baltics.…

Germany

I’m sure you’ve seen the pictures of the white castle rising between the mountains. Neuschwanstein Castle might be Germany’s most famous sight – so famous that it inspired Walt Disney when he designed the Sleeping Beauty’s Castle.

These days, the castle gets around 1,3 million visitors every day. And with good reason. It looks majestic from the outside and comes with a fascinating story. Plus, you can find a second castle within walking distance, so you can stay in the area for a whole day without getting bored.

But how do you visit Neuschwanstein Castle? How do you get there? Do you need to book your tickets in advance?

Like many travellers, we were wondering about these and other questions before our trip.

Estonia

Estonia is one of those countries where we found it very hard to eat local food. In Pärnu, our second stop in the country, we went to the tourist information to find out where to get traditional Estonian food.

“There is no such thing as Estonian restaurants,” the woman told us. “We don’t go out to eat Estonian food.” That statement left us very confused. Both in Lithuania and in Latvia, we had been able to find traditional restaurants. Surely, there had to be some in Estonia as well? And what about those (admittedly few) traditional dishes we had read about online?

Fortunately, even though it seems a bit difficult at times, you can find plenty of traditional food in Estonia.…

Every year, when the days get shorter, I get excited for Christmas. The Christmas Market in Frankfurt is one of the highlights of this season, and I can’t wait to get out and have a cup of hot Glühwein.

Usually, the month of December means meet-ups with friends and co-workers at the Christmas Market. Plus, we like to go by ourselves a few times, just to enjoy the lights and look at the various handicrafts.

Even though we’ve lived in Frankfurt for a few years already, we discover new things every time we go. Last winter, for example, I found out that you can get amazing grilled salmon at the market. We have also discovered some of the smaller markets, which are all worth visiting.
