Our City Guides showcase a curated selection of places to stay, eat, shop and visit in each of the destinations we travel to. We focus on local businesses and slow tourism, and we hope our City Guides can be used as a starting point to plan your own itineraries.
Utrecht often gets overshadowed by Amsterdam, but this Dutch city – one of the oldest in the Netherlands – offers a much more relaxed atmosphere and its compact size makes it the perfect destination for those who like discovering a city on foot.
Although the media has recently called it ‘the new Berlin’, this East German city is actually quite different from the country’s capital. Art spreads across the city but Leipzig is more laid-back and quiet, making it the perfect destination for those seeking a relaxing city break.
Wander around Madrid’s lively streets and get to experience the locals’ lifestyle. Order a vermouth and enjoy the Spanish sun outside, go shopping in the Malasaña and Chueca neighbourhoods or visit some of the numerous museums and small galleries located across the city.
Edinburgh’s compact size and mix of tradition and innovation makes it the perfect destination for a different weekend break. Discover some of our favourite places from the city we live in our new city guide.
