24 hours in Copenhagen

As well as being the cultural, economic, and political centre of Denmark, Copenhagen is also a paradise for lovers of art and design, combining a traditional, maritime atmosphere with modern Danish architecture to form a unique and beautiful cityscape. In recent years, Copenhagen has emerged as a true gourmet destination and can pride itself on being the home of many world-class restaurants. The city’s very own brand of effortless style and low-key sophistication make this Nordic capital worth a visit.

24 Hours in Amsterdam

Amsterdam is a city proud of its past, with a rich history built on maritime trade and a long tradition of excellence in the arts, especially painting. Yet the Dutch city is also a forward-looking place, full of hot young designers, recently redeveloped museums, and progressive ideas. Quirky, innovative, and fun, Amsterdam is best enjoyed with a slow pedal by bicycle, a stroll along its canals, or an hour spent on a café terrace watching the world go by.

24 hours in Vienna

Vienna is one of the world’s most seductive cities, rich in imperial glamour, parks, and coffeehouses, and boasting an unparalleled musical heritage and impressive art museums. The grandeur and gaiety of the former Austro-Hungarian Empire are preserved in the frills and flounces of the city’s distinctive baroque architecture, and history and tradition resonate on every street corner. Vienna doesn’t just dwell in its past, however. It celebrates the modern, with some striking contemporary architecture, new interpretations of classic Viennese cuisine in its restaurants, and an increasingly youthful, multicultural vibe, making it the European tourism capital of the moment.
