If one wants to travel to Europe without spending “a fortune”, there are definitely many options. There are dozens of beautiful – and extremely affordable – places for every expensive city that offer all the European charm at very affordable prices. Ljubljana, Porto, Budapest, and even Berlin: these cities have the rich culture, impressive architecture and delicious food that one will find inexpensive European capitals, but they are also ideal for “low-budget” travel.
There are also many museums, churches and attractions where admission is free, and this happens everywhere on free admission days (usually once a month). Tourist entrance cards for many attractions are also quite advantageous. Budget cuts do not mean that guests will have to sacrifice anything for the quality of the trip. In fact, the less a traveller spends, the closer they may come to the local culture of the destination they have chosen.
For a holiday that looks like a “fairytale”, the best choice is Bavaria. We suggest you book a room in Burg Colmberg, a 14th-century castle perched on a cliff above a picturesque village. Another top attraction of the city is Neuschwanstein Castle, a 19th-century palace perched on a hill above the village of Schwangau, near Füssen. Louis II of Bavaria ordered its construction as a resting place and a tribute to Richard Wagner.
Destinations for budget holidays in Europe – Puglia
The emblematic architecture of Puglia (the “heel” of the “boot” formed on the map of Italy) has as its absolute protagonist the prehistoric whitewashed houses with domes: cone-shaped roofs made of stacked grey stones.
There are nowhere more such houses than in Alberobello, where entire neighbourhoods are built with only such buildings. Guests can rent one of these houses, which is cool during the summer and has fireplaces for the winter. The best thing is that their rental price is meagre, thus allowing everyone to live a few moments as locals. Finally, for those who want to find out what the Amalfi Coast was like before it became a destination full of tourists, all they have to do is visit the forested Gargano Peninsula in Puglia.
The capital of Hungary offers all the charm of the most famous European destinations at an incomparable price. The Hungarian Parliament and the Fisherman’s Bastion are two of the top attractions one can find in the city. There are also many budget accommodations, restaurants and bars. Even the city’s famous baths and spas – some of which date back over 100 years and have a beautiful design – can be quite accessible to visitors.
Destinations for budget holidays in Europe – Savoy
The prefecture of Savoy is the second most mountainous in France, after the prefecture of Haute-Alpes, with almost 88% of its territory located in mountainous areas. It is mainly the Alpine mountain range and to a lesser extent, the Jura (Zira) mountain range to the west. It is a magical area where it can give every traveller a fantastic life experience. Specifically, you can visit the Tignes area, which consists of 5 picturesque villages (Tignes Val Claret, Tignes le Lac, Le Lavachet, Tignes Les Boisses and Tignes-les-Brévières).
You can choose one of them for a budget vacation while at the same time enjoying endless hours of skiing on the snow-capped mountain slopes. Everyone thinks that a winter vacation at a ski resort is a high budget, but if you choose the right travel agency, you will realize the opposite. So if you’re looking for an amazing ski holiday in Tignes, you should trust Erna Low with its unique packages and prices, offering you a chance to experience the perfect winter holiday.
