Which cities would you choose?Hi
I am interested to know anyone's opinion and choices.
You have 10/11 days in february in Europe to see cities only, western or eastern it doesn't matter. Which would you choose? How many? You can choose your favourites but give a reason why you chose that particular place or cities you would like to go. Any amount for the 10 days.
I am trying to get ideas for a trip mid February.
Thank for any help

1This is impossible to give an answer to.
Brussels, Bruge, Antwerp, Delft and Amsterdam are all so close to (and relatively) small, that you could realistically do them all in 11 days.
However, if you went for Krakow, Prague, Budapest, you'd only manage those because they're big and far away from each other.
You gotta give us more than this
1) Where are you flying into, or could fly into
2) How much money (in euros, after flights) will you have
3) What are your interests? Skiiing, hiking, art galleries, music, architecture, festivals, mountains, seaside, modern history, ancient history, lazing in a 5 star hotel, camping out despite the weather, playing sports, watching sports, etc etc.
4) Are you on your own? A couple? Got kids in tow? What age are you (the answer I'd give a 18 yr old isn't the same I'd give a 80 yr old)...

2No flights booked yet I just would like your opinion.
I plan to Travel around by train if it's within about 4 hours away or cheap flights.
I enjoy a variety of different things eating, seeing sights, interesting and different places, busy, beautiful etc I am open to anywhere with a variety of things to do.
There will be 2 o us female both 28.

Berlin is still on my list of one-of-these-days short city breaks. Main reason would be for the museums - enough of what interests me that 4 days would go by pretty quickly. Add on another 2-3 days for exploring various districts, at least one day for a Potsdam excursion. Then, if I did decide to go, I'd do a bit of research on other day-trip options.
The same plan for London, also on the list of city breaks. I've been to London a couple of times, but for some reason never bothered with most of the museums.
And both are within striking distance of getting there by train within 5-7 hours. I don't mind flying in principle, but for some reason prefer surface for these city breaks.
As you can see, about a week is my minimum for visiting a large city.

Possibly with 11 days I might go for 2 bases.

7I'd head for southern Europe, because chances of somewhat nice weather are higher there than up north.
I would then definitely do my own research and come up with a shortlist first before asking anonymous strangers on an internet forum where they would go.
By the way,
You can choose your favourites but give a reason why you chose that particular place or cities you would like to go
I don't like to be told how to answer a question, so I will refrain from giving any specific suggestions. If you want to shout orders, get a dog instead.

12I'm the opposite to those suggesting heading south - I'd head north and embrace the cold. but that's cos the cold is still exciting to me...
but i'd pick places accordingly - places where there's plenty to do indoors, places that will probably be snowy instead of rainy.
i'd also pick 2 places only then do a day trip or two.
considering where I haven't been, i'd go to ... i dunno, i'm not going anyway.
