Day 1: Munich, Germany
What better place to start than in the friendliest city there ever was? No really, ‘Munich likes you’ is the city motto. Thanks Munich! Now that you and the city have broken the ice, enjoy a stroll through its enigmatic streets, and then treat yourself to a stein at Hofbräuhaus.
Day 2: Munich to Ljubljana, Slovenia
Give one last prost to Munich before we move on to the magical Lake Bled (yep, that’s the one with the fairytale castle in the middle). After you’ve Instagrammed your heart out, we’ll make our way to Ljubljana (lyoob-lya-nah), capital of Slovenia. Jump in the 70-metre funicular and shoot back to the Middle Ages on a walking tour – the Ljubljana Castle and Old Town here have been waiting for you since Celtic times. Tonight, hit up military-barracks-turned-bar-and-gallery-strip, Metelkova Mesto for a tea or vino with a side of live music and underground art installations.

Day 5: Budapest to Krakow, Poland
Legend has it a dragon had to be smited in order for Kraków to be built (with a sulphur stuffed lamb as bait). Bit tougher than the usual council approvals, no? Meet Poland's beating heart – and the largest medieval town square in Europe – on a walking tour. Buff up on history at Wawel Castle, feed the ducks amongst the slushy snow on the bank of the Wisla and after dinner, slay a few glasses of mead.
