A city trip: But where?

You love culture, history or just the pulsating life of a big city? Then how about a city break?

  • Berlin, Barcelona, Amsterdam, Prague or London are just some of the cities that offer exciting sights, good food and a lively night scene.
  • Whether you spend the day sightseeing or just drifting through the streets, a city offers countless possibilities.

Hiking in the Alps, rafting in a wild river, camping under the stars – these are just some of the activities you can experience in nature. Nothing connects more than a shared adventure in the great outdoors.

Final tips for your weekend getaway

1.Organizers: designating one or two people as the main organizers is a great idea. They can take on the responsibility of booking accommodations, arranging transportation and planning activities. They are also the ones the other participants can turn to with questions or concerns.

2. Collect money: Collecting money in advance can avoid many potential disputes and misunderstandings. Make sure everyone involved knows in advance how much they will need to contribute and what that money will cover.

3.Plan B: It’s always good to have a Plan B just in case something goes wrong. Maybe it’s an alternative activity for bad weather, or a backup accommodation in case there are problems with the first one. That way you’ll be prepared for any eventuality.

4.Excuse: Think of a good excuse to “kidnap” the groom or bride. It could be something simple, like a casual dinner, or something more creative, depending on what suits your group and the groom or bride.
