7 X MUST VISIT PLACES FOR THIS FALL

Summer is almost over but that doesn’t mean you can’t start planning your next trip. October is a great period to pack that suitcase and enjoy those last rays of sunlight or visit a beautiful city. These are our  must visit places for this fall.

1. Marrakesh, Morocco

With a reasonable short flight of 3,5 hours (from Amsterdam) it’s the perfect getaway to soak up the sunshine in October. Check our Marrakech Guide ffor the best tips and try to book your accommodation beforehand to get the best deals. Besides Marrakesh, Morocco has a lot more to offer. You can surf in Taghazout, ride camels in the Sahara or take a dip into the shallow waters of Paradise Valley.

2. Dubai, Emirates

If you want heat, you’re gonna get it here. (31-36 degrees!) It might be a little more expensive than a European break but this will be an experience you won’t forget. Shopping, fine dining and skydiving are some of the things Dubai brings to the table. KLM is offering flights from €397 in their world deal weeks at the moment so be quick!

3. Dubrovnik, Croatia

This affordable getaway is still warm in the fall and prices are particularly low during this period. You have all the space to enjoy the magnificent beaches. Dubrovnik is also great for mountain hiking and enjoy the beautiful colors. Take the train and go interrailing!

4. Miami, Florida

It’s the best time to visit Miami the locals say. Why? Because most tourist will be gone (a lot better than spring break!) and temperatures are still very nice. If you’re visiting with kids, you can always visit Disney World (yes, it’s a must see with kids) or if you’re the adventurer you can watch crocodiles in the everglades. 

5. Folegandros, Greece

If you want total zen, no fuss, good food and stunning views, you must visit FolegandrosIt’s great the whole year round but summer is still happening in Folegandros in the fall. You can fly to Athens (about 180 euro’s) and take the speedy boat service to the island in just 4 hours. You can also fly to Santorini and take the boat in just 45 minutes. Flights to Santorini are more expensive though. One thing is for sure; you will feel completely recharged when you return.

8. Jordan, Middle East

One of the worlds most spectacular sights are found right here but remain unseen by so many. In October there are still bright sunny days that light the rock of Petra up rose-red; but it is cool enough to journey into the Valley of the Moon on camel or horseback by day, and warm enough to sleep out under the starry sky by night. Flights from 300 euro’s with Turkish Airlines.

7. Munich, Germany

Why Munich? Because it’s the Oktoberfest of course! Starting from the 19th of Sept until the 4th of October. The festive fall event is not just about beer drinking anymore but also offers music, dance, food, markets and a fair. Grab your car and make a roadtrip!

Explore Munich in 2 days

I often go to Germany for work and I really like it, especially Berlin and Hamburg are some of my favorites. I’ve never visited Munich before and this year I got the opportunity! After visiting the capital of Bavaria, I can now add this city to my list of favorite places to visit in Germany. This city with plenty of cultural highlights and beautiful architecture, is a city where you can’t get enough of. The architecture of some castles, museums, and lovely parks are breathtaking.

Next to that Munich is also a great place for shopping and eating. I had only 2 days to explore Munich, but I think I did a good job to find some very fine parts which you need to check out when you’re there;

Sleeping
This beautiful hotel, Flushing Meadows, is situated on the top two floors of an industrial building in Munich’s most vibrant neighborhood, the Glockenbac. The third floor has 11 individual loft studios – prizes from 165 euro per night – created in collaboration with selected personalities and friends from various creative realms, including music, cinema, design, sports and art. The 4th floor feature five penthouse studios – prizes from 145 euro per night – with a private terrace with a stunning view over Munich where they serve delicious seasonal cocktails.
The bar is popular with many locals and apparently every night there’s a very great vibe.

Food & Drink

1. Little Kind Cafe
Little kind cafe is located on a side street of Gartnerplatz which is the perfect place for a healthy vegan lunch! You will love it immediately; it has a great ambiance due to the cute little wooden tables – made of pallets – inside and outside with paper lamps  handing and different plants. They have a nice menu, all fresh and homemade. From matcha latte coffees to vegan banana cakes, it’s all so tasty.
Tip: Try the toast with avocado and a fresh coconut and top it of with a fresh cake and coffee.

2. Man versus Machine
Do you like coffee? Then this is the place to be. I really can enjoy a good cup of coffee and this place serves on of the best you’ve ever had! It’s a great place to get work done. It’s nice and quiet with plenty of room and comfortable seats. Man vs Machine is an independent specialty coffee roasting company. They love to advise you to find your perfect coffee, and they also offer delicious cakes!

3. Stereo Cafe
Though it’s situated on one of the most commercial streets (Theatinerstraße) of Munich, it’s a very nice cafe where you can enjoy a American cup of coffee, healthy lunch and homemade cake whilst enjoying the view of the Residence! Do you need a little shopping break? This is the place you would like to go to.

1. Residenz in Munich
Munich Residenz is definitely one of Europe’s most spectacular palaces. Make sure to visit the different rooms where you will find fine architecture and impressive Renaissance decorations and definitely take an hour to wander to see the beautiful old courtyards – the beautiful Court Garden.

2. Munich is great for shopping
Visit Munich’s most exclusive shopping area Maximilianstraße and Residenzstraße where you will find exclusive boutiques.
One of my favorite shops is IRO. Maybe a bit pricey, but a qualitative beautiful brand where you will find that special item that everyone wants but you have!
