If you’re like me, you’ve probably had a few adventures in Europe and aren’t looking for anything too crazy. Maybe you want something different, or maybe it’s just that you do not have excess money to spend. Whatever the case, there are plenty of places to travel alone in Europe and have a great time without spending a lot of money. Here are eight cities I recommend visiting as a solo traveler:

Before thinking of places to travel alone in Europe, single travelers should consider a few locations that won’t break the bank and yet offer some of the best experiences.

Piggy bank ofor best places to travel in europe

There are many reasons that single travelers should consider a few locations that won’t break the bank and yet offer some of the best experiences.

  • The cost of food in Europe is lower than in North America, and you can get an excellent meal for less than $10 at most restaurants.
  • Accommodations are also more affordable than they are in North America—you can find a good bed-and-breakfast or hostel room for under $100 per night. If you prefer to stay at hotels, prices start at around $150 per night for a decent place in most cities.
  • Transportation costs are low compared with those back home, so it’s easy to get from one place to another by public transportation if your destination has bus service or trains. Taxis aren’t expensive either; in fact, they’re often cheaper than taking public transportation such as buses or trams because there’s no need for multiple tickets (in other words: buying individual tickets for each leg of your journey).

Cinque Terre is one of the best places to travel alone in Europe.

  • Cinque Terre. Five towns make up this beautiful area of Italy. They are connected by hiking trails and boat tours.
  • The food can be excellent and there are a lot of restaurants and cafes to choose from.
  • You can hike through the towns, or even stay in one of them (like Monterosso) if you want to get away from the crowds but still experience it all!

Budapest is another one of the best places to travel alone in Europe.

Budapest is one of the best places to travel in europe

Budapest is the capital of Hungary, and it’s a beautiful city with lots of museums and galleries. It’s also a great city for solo travelers because there are plenty of things to do and see, but it isn’t as busy as other European capitals like London or Paris. Budapest has its own unique vibe — it’s more laid-back than other cities in Europe and you can enjoy yourself without having to worry about fighting through crowds or feeling like everyone else is judging you for your actions.

Budapest is also a great option if you like eating! There are tons of restaurants with different cuisines here (including Michelin-starred restaurants), so even if you don’t speak Hungarian, there’s no need to worry about not being able to find somewhere good to eat while visiting this amazing city!

Berlin is certainly among the best places to travel alone in Europe.

It’s a city that is both modern and historic, with the former coming from its status as a current global capital of commerce and culture, while the latter manifests itself in many ways — from its famous museums to its beautiful parks.

Whether or not you’re a history buff, it’s hard not to be intrigued by Berlin’s past. It was once home to some of Europe’s most influential writers, philosophers and artists; for example: Bertolt Brecht, Heinrich Heine and Friedrich Engels. These days you can visit their homes or gravesites at cemeteries like Père Lachaise in Paris or Montmartre Cemetery in Paris (if you’d rather avoid the crowds). You’ll also find some spectacularly preserved buildings scattered throughout Berlin — even if they aren’t open to tourists — including old castles such as Spandau Citadel which dates back to 1250 AD!

If art museums are more your thing than castles then there are plenty of those too; some say that Berlin has more museums per square kilometer than any other city on earth! There are so many options that choosing one can be overwhelming but we recommend checking out Gemäldegalerie – Staatliche Museen zu Berlin where visitors get free entry on Tuesday nights after 6pm between October through April each year (this includes all three buildings). The museum houses over 650 paintings by Rembrandt van Rijn (1569-1609), Rubens (1577-1640) and other great masters along with sculptures by Leonardo da Vinci among others! If this isn’t enough excitement then don’t worry; there are lots more local attractions worth visiting too such as Checkpoint Charlie Museum where visitors can learn about Cold War History & Post War Germany Between 1945 – 1990s; Or how about Alexanderplatz Square which has been an important commercial center since 1711?


Barcelona is a great city to travel alone in, especially if you’re looking for a fun and safe place to explore. The Catalan capital has some of the most exciting nightlife in Europe, world-class restaurants, beautiful beaches and more museums than any other city on the continent.

The city also offers an impressive public transportation system so that you can get around safely by yourself (and save money). You’ll want to avoid walking late at night though; like many European cities Barcelona suffers from an unfortunate reputation as a haven for pickpockets—though this can be avoided by staying away from dodgy areas after dark or using common sense when walking around town.


copenhagen is one of the best places to travel in europe

There are so many things to do in Copenhagen that it’s hard to choose where to start. From the Little Mermaid, to the Copenhagen Opera House, to a stroll through Tivoli Gardens, there’s an experience for everyone. You can also visit Christiania (a self-proclaimed “free town”) or take a boat tour through one of the many beautiful neighborhoods along the waterfront.

Copenhagen is one of Europe’s top destinations and it’s safe as well! The Danish police force has proven itself time and again with its exceptional skills at keeping tourists safe on their travels around town — so much so that Interpol and other organizations dedicated to fighting crime across borders has given them awards for their work.

The Danish people are very welcoming towards strangers from all over the world who visit their country during any season throughout the year – especially during summertime when festivals are held throughout Europe each month from June through August (July 26th being national Day). They love hearing about your experiences abroad and sharing theirs back home too!


Madrid is a great city to travel alone in! There’s so much to do, including eating the best food, seeing amazing art, going out at night and learning about history. Madrid has some of the most beautiful architecture in Europe.

The Basque Country.

The Basque Country is an autonomous community at the western end of the Iberian Peninsula, which includes the provinces of Álava, Biscay and Gipuzkoa. We know this area for its beaches, hiking and snowboarding. It’s also a popular destination for solo travelers who want to explore all that it has to offer in a short period of time. The Basque Country is a great place to visit for a weekend (or even longer).


If you want to learn more about history and culture, Kraków is a great option. The city is full of museums, historical buildings and monuments, galleries, theatres and concert halls. The Old Town is also home to many beautiful cathedrals that have been around since medieval times. The city is also famous for its music festivals like Krakow Live Festival, which takes place in June every year.

The best time to visit Krakow is during the spring or summer months because you’ll get to experience the beautiful weather while exploring all that this amazing city has to offer!

ale sure to prepare well before you hit the road. You should plan your trip well in advance and make sure that it’s something that you want to do. It’s also important to be aware of your surroundings at all times, especially if you are walking around alone at night or in unfamiliar neighborhoods filled with people who might not have good intentions towards you.

Traveling alone can be scary, but the most important thing is having fun!
