    European destination with little walking? 16th Apr 17 at 10:41 AM
    Any suggestion for a European holiday which would involve little walking please as I can no longer walk very far?

    We would prefer not to go to a beach resort unless there were other attractions easily accessible. We like nature, museums, architecture and history. We are happy to use public transport and willing to pay for centrally located accommodation.

    I would appreciate any ideas. Thank you

    We've just come back from Berlin which is a great city. There is lots to see and the public transport system is excellent - you can get around really easily.

    We went to Brussels last christmas sailing from Harwich then got a train to the town centre, had a fabulous time. Day trip to Brugue was 10 euro each by train. Trains were lovely and clean, on time and even had a drink service. Restaurants were e little expensive but it was worth it.

    Amsterdam?
    Train system takes you out of the capital, trams around the city and a hoho boat on the canals. Lots of places to watch the world go by and art galleries, museums to fill your days too.......

    Another vote for cruising.
    Think of it as a floating hotel. Unpack once and arrive in a new destination on most days (depending on your choice of itineraries.) The Baltic is particularly interesting in June with the long days- Scandanavia, Baltic states and usually St Petersberg.
    Being polite and pleasant doesn't cost anything!

    Pretty much any city that has a hop on hop off bus could work for you. We have just come back from Athens which is chock full of bits of broken stone and we did very little walking using either the bus or taxis. The Parthenon does involve a walk up a fair few steps mind you. Berlin would be good or Krakow so long as you avoid the salt mine trip which is about a thousand steps down. I am also a fan of Copenhagen although I did walk a lot there as its is quite compact. I would also suggest cruising- I have only done this once but I was only 40 so not ancient.

    If you liked Munich then what about Berlin? There is so much public transport that you can get about easily with very little walking - there's U bahn stations at all the major points of interest, and lots to do and see.

    I agree. I love Berlin.

    Cologne was great too, lots to see and great public transport.
    And there's always the Bimmelbahn, mini train.


    Cost ~ 10 Euros, and you just hop on and hop off.
    My job is Top Secret. Even I don't know what I'm doing.

    Amount I have so far denied the BBC - £1161
