How to Travel to Europe Cheaply

This video shows you how to save big money on your next trip to Europe. The techniques can also be used anywhere in the world. When we travel we find airfares for $300-$400 Round Trip. We find 3.8 to 5 star hotels for $100/night on average. We limit our daily spending to about $100/day. This means a trip to Europe will cost you around:

  • 7 Days – $1,700 – $1,800
  • 14 days – $3,100 – $3,200
  • 21 Days – $4,500 – $4,600

Listen to how we did it in the YouTube Video below:

Europe is exciting and it is more fun when you saved $1,000 on airfare over the person next to you on the plane or got the same room in the same hotel for $125/night instead of $400/night. Budgets are easy and this video will give you ideas on how to save money and get started.

In the near future we will be offering a service to help plan your trip for you. If you are interested drop me an email at: georgefebish@yahoo.comtoday.

Covered in this video:

  • Airfares (on major carriers)
  • Hotels in both small and large hotel chains
  • Sightseeing
  • Meals
  • Tricks to enjoy a fantastic vacation for much less money

*NEW SERVICE COMING SOON                                                                                                *

Frankfurt Germany

Frankfurt is the center of the European Bank for Euros. It is a large modern city with an old wonderful center (Romeberg). The Main River flows through Frankfurt. It has wonderful pedestrian bridges over it. On the other side of the Main is where all the museums are located. They are all together so you can easily chose which you want to see and visit them.

The best way to see Frankfurt and get around is the Hop-On-Hop-Off bus & boat. Frankfurt is a very walkable city as well. It is an easy walk to everywhere. From the airport, take the ICE train (23 minutes) to the Central Train Station. We stayed at the Intercontinental Hotel while in Frankfurt and at the Steigenberg Airport Hotel 3 weeks later on our way home.

Things to see:

  • Main River
  • Palm Garden (Botanical Gardens)
  • Hop-On-Hop-Off bus & Boat
  • Central Train Station
  • Farmers Market
  • Galleria shopping mall
  • Old Opera House
  • Romeberg (old section)
  • Goethe Museum
  • Iron pedestrian bridge over Main River
  • Saint Bartholomew’s Church

Come walk with us through Frankfurt Germany:

This VLOG:

Title: Copenhagen

Country: Denmark

 

We flew from Helsinki Finland to Copenhagen Denmark in April of 2019. Copenhagen is a wonderful and fun city to visit. It is a city of bicycles and people. The people are very friendly unless you step into their bike lanes. The best way to see this city is the Hop-On-Hop-Off Busses and Boats. We take them around to see everything first then go back and get off at stops we want to visit. There are two lines available. We took the Stromma line. They had a special that gave us two days for the price of one. The busses and boat available on Stromma are:

 

  • Red Mermaid Tour (Bus)
  • Purple Christiania Tour (Bus)
  • Green Carlsberg Tour (Bus)
  • Blue Boat Tour (Boat)

 

A great place to visit and have lunch is the Reffen – Street Food market. It is a group of shipping containers that are food stalls, beer & wine stalls, gelato stalls, etc. There are picnic tables everywhere to sit and enjoy your lunch outdoors. Some stalls give free samples. The food is not expensive considering this is Denmark.

Things to see:

 

  • Christiania (Little Amsterdam)
  • Queens Palace
  • Little Mermain
  • Reffen (see Hop on Hop off above
  • Kissing Bridge
  • Canal Boat Ride (See Hop-on-Hop-off above)
  • Carlsberg Brewery (was closed being remodeled when we were there)
  • Malmo Sweden (acroos a bridge – you can take train)
  • Botanical Gardens
  • Rosenborg castle (across from Botanical Gardens)
  • Tivoli Gardens (amusement Park)
  • Central Train Station with its clock

Stockholm Sweden

Stockholm is a wonderful Scandinavian city in Sweden. It is located on the eastern side of Sweden on the Baltic Sea. It is a big seaport city. Getting to and from the Stockholm Airport is easy and can be inexpensive. The Arlanda Express Train leaves from under the arrivals terminal and costs about $32. We took an express bus from the airport to the Central Train Statin for a fraction of that cost.

We stayed at the Scandic Upplandsgatan Hotel a short walk from the train Station. We ate a meal at the Polpette Italian Restaurant on the pedestrian walkway (Drottninggatan) near the Central Train Station.  Things to see in Stockholm are:

  • Old Town and Palace on Gamla Stan Island
  • Hop-On-Hop-Off Red Bus Tour
  • Kungstradgarten Shopping street
  • Stureplan Trendy bars and cafes
  • Vasa Museum with Viking ships

Come walk around Stockholm with us in this YouTube video:

Scenic Railway Oslo to Bergen Norway

We recently took the Oslo to Bergen Norway scenic railway. Some say it is one of the most scenic rail systems in the world. We started in Oslo Norway. The train went through Oslo suburbs and started it journey into the countryside. As it climbed the foothills, there was snow everywhere. After a while we were among beautiful lakes on both sides of the train. Then we ascended above the tree line and into a deep snow and mountain peak world. It was a wilderness but so peaceful. We chose Comfort+ Class, which gave us bigger and more comfortable seats for the journey and free coffee or tea.

Come ride the train with us in this YouTube video:

Hellsten Helsinki Senate Hotel – Helsinki Finland

The Hellsten Helsinki Senate was a wonderful place to stay for our vacation in Helsinki Finland. We had a wonderful suite with a large living room, kitchen, full bath, large bedroom and even our own sauna. It is located on an island with a easy walk to shopping, restaurants, the market, boats and the Central Train Station. There is also a tram that runs from the corner right to the train station.

We arrived on the Viking overnight cruise from Stockholm Sweden. It docked on the island a few short blocks from the hotel. When we left to catch our flight to Copenhagen, Denmark, we walked to the Central Train Station. There we caught a train right into the airport. Public transportation was inexpensive, fast and very convenient.

TheYouTube video below shows this great hotel:

Bergen Norway

Bergen is a great little city in Norway. It is on the western shores of Norway directly opposite Oslo. We took the scenic train from Oslo to Bergen over snow covered mountains (A VLOG on this is coming next). We stayed at the Zander K Hotel in Bergen directly opposite the Central Train Station.

When you visit Bergen be sure to experience:

  • Funicular up the mountain to hiking trails and a fantastic sunset
  • Fish Market
  • Multi-Colored Buildings
  • Sea Port
  • Bergenhus Fortress & Museum
  • Walk the streets and enjoy the city

We ate wonderful fish at the Fish Market at the port. The fish is fresh. There are several shops here to buy fish and several restaurants to eat it. You can dine outside (weather permitting) or inside.

Come walk with around Bergen:

Zander K Hotel in Bergen Norway

The Zander K is a wonderful hotel in Bergen Norway one block from the Central Train Station. It has a wonderful breakfast, a great bar and restaurant and spacious rooms. This hotel is located within an easy walk of the Marina, Fish Market, Funicular, Seaport and multi-colored buildings. Taking the Light-Rail to and from the Bergen airport is the easiest and cheapest way.

Come see this great small hotel in the heart of Bergen:

Oslo Norway

We recently spent 3 weeks in Scandinavia. It was a wonderful trip. we visited Norway, Sweden, Finland and Denmark. This vlog is about our trip to Oslo Norway. We stayed at a wonderful hotel in Oslo that was central to everything. We went in the beginning of April. It was cold but not freezing. We had several sunny days that felt warm and wonderful.

The waterfront was our favorite area. Here you can rent boats, take a boat ride, walk on a boardwalk and find endless types of restaurants. Oslo is a very walkable city. The Central Train Station was only 13-minute walk from our hotel and another few minutes to the Palace or waterfront. You can also rent a bicycle or your hotel may lend you one.

Come see Oslo with us in our YouTube Video below:
