We hope you’ve had an amazing summer! We’ll be sharing some of summer stories over the coming weeks – the first part in our series can be found via this link – https://blog.takemeaway.io/discovering-hungary-part-1-budapest/; but for now we want to look ahead to the amazing places you could be this Autumn.

September marks ‘back to work’ and at the same time the leaves begin to turn and the hours of  sunlight starts dwindling. It all adds up to making us all feel a little glum. We think Autumn is a great time to discover new places and brighten up your mood! We’ve chosen 6 destinations we think will fit your budget. So download TakeMeAway (download for iOS and Android) and get swiping!

Bordeaux

Bordeaux has one million inhabitants in its metropolitan area. After years of neglect, the former wet docks are the country’s new hot spot, with a number of cafés, gardens, and museums springing up all the time. Apparently the wine is alright too….

Brussels

The capital of Europe may not be so popular, politically but that’s no excuse not to visit!  It is an ever-changing city which grows to accept and enjoy every culture that settles there, turning it from a city into a home away from home.

Geneva

The gateway to the Alps is also a rather pretty city in its own right. People may think the city of diplomacy is a bit boring but the gorgeous lake, fantastic food and bohemian neighbourhoods make this a must visit city!

Bonn

Did you know that Beethoven was from Bonn? Yours truly certainly didn’t and it is now firmly on my ‘go to’ list. One of Germany’s oldest cities is full of history as well as being rather hip with a lively cafe and bar culture. And if that isn’t enough, it’s a great base to explore the Rhine and Eifel regions.

Vienna

Vienna is top of my list for this Autumn and I reckon it should be yours too! It’s got all the Imperialistic grandeur from a bygone era and is still a leading city for arts and culture. What more could you ask for in a weekend getaway?

Basel

The city could be described as a bit eccentric, eclectic with a potential identity crisis. That’s understandable when you border both Germany and France! We think it gives rise to a culture that is just asking to be explored. The Museum of Fine Arts is just one of the standout places to visit in this fine city.

Manchester

Manchester is our wildcard destination and we reckon under appreciated. The city’s may be best known for its association with football, but there is a lively underbelly just waiting to be discovered. The city has had a particular influence on music with acts such as Oasis, The Smiths, Simply Red, The 1975 and The Charlatans all hailing from the ‘Capital in the North’. So why not spend a weekend discovering the UK’s second most populous city?
