Inspiration for your next holiday

Now we’re nearing winter, the summer holiday seems a long way away. A good time to start thinking about your next trip! Perhaps you still have travel plans for this year, or maybe you’re looking at the options for 2023. Recently we've added some new direct destinations that are definitely worth considering.

City trip to cultural hub Aarhus

Scandinavia is becoming more and more popular as a holiday destination. Aarhus is joining Copenhagen, Billund and Aalborg on our list of Danish destinations. It’s a one-hour flight away and therefore a great city trip. In the ARoS art museum you’ll find a large collection of modern and contemporary art. If you prefer to go back in time, walk through Den Gamle By (the old town) – an open-air museum that houses a collection of 75 historical buildings from across Denmark. You can also enjoy wandering through the cozy streets of the city centre. Be sure not to miss the colourful Møllestien! For food and drink, head over to Aarhus Street Food. In this former bus garage you will find stalls with delicacies from all corners of the world

Katowice, creative industrial city

Katowice, in south-eastern Poland, grew into a city thanks to industry. You can learn all about that at the Silesian Museum, located at the site of an old coal mine. Permanent and temporary exhibitions tell you about the history of the city and the Silesia region, but there’s also a look to the future with modern art installations. On the edge of town you’ll find the distinctive neighbourhood of Nikiszowiec. This area used to house factory workers, but it’s now a trendy and creative place full of restaurants and bars. Creativity can be found everywhere in Katowice and there are impressive murals dotted around the city. A great way to discover them is by going on a street art tour. Another, almost otherworldly, eye-catcher is the Spodek Arena that looms up in the centre of the city like a kind of flying saucer. Concerts, sports competitions and events are held here.

Beaches and wild nature in Asturias

The best way to discover this wild coastal region in the north-west of Spain is by road trip. That way, you can take your time to explore various picturesque villages along the coast and in the mountains. Don’t forget your walking books – a hike through the stunning Picos de Europa is a must! There, you can enjoy spectacular views and dramatic landscapes, as well as spot birds of prey, mountain goats and perhaps even bears. Take some time to relax in the pretty places along the coast where you’ll find countless bays, high cliffs and the most beautiful beaches. In the region's capital, Oviedo, you can stroll through the medieval streets. In addition to the famous cathedral, the centre offers a lot of cozy squares and the whole city is full of beautiful statues.
