Best European city to go for a summer vacation

It's my 2nd time visiting Europe, first time on my own as an adult. I'm leaning towards visiting a city in the Netherlands as I'd like to bicycle around the city and not use a car at all. Any recommendations?

      As someone, who grew up there, I'd suggest end of April - May. 2014 or before that, of course.

    Greece. But stay on the islands. In this order: Crete, Mykonos, Rhodes. (Skip Santorini)

      Double down on Budapest. More affordable. Just as amazing of a city as the rest of Europe. Catch the train to Vienna and the alps for a side trip or down to the Croatia coast and the Adriatic. Absolutely amazing.

      Totally agree. Budapest is stunning and probably only second to Paris in beauty, but at a fraction of the cost. I went last summer and immediately fell in love with the city. Amazing food and nightlife.

    Berlin is cool for bicycle. Also there are trains that permit you to take your bike along if you want to travel

      Sorry you had a bad experience. I grew up there and if you like museums I don’t understand why you felt it was boring

    • I don’t like capital cities much. Munich was fun, Stuttgart and Frankfurt were colorful. I did not like Berlin as a tourist destination, probably it is good place to live and grow up. I have similar feelings for Washington. Museum were fine, Babylon is world class but it is not Paris level :)

      Berlin is not as polished as Munich but much cheaper and more wild. It has lots of historical scars that haven’t been painted over. As such, it’s more authentic but I agree it’s not as pretty :)

    Sevilla, Cordoba, Granada, Toledo - great cities to go to. If you're ok with the heat.

      Vent there a few years ago in the summer. Loved it, but it *was* hot.
