Hi all,

I am looking for a weekend break this coming weekend, preferably Saturday to Monday. I am based in London and fancy travelling somewhere within Europe.

I was going to go to New York as I found a £347GBP return with BA from Heathrow, but decided against it, in favour of somewhere closer to home. - However, I can't decide on where to go!

I want somewhere nice, Not too expensive, plenty of spotting opportunities, somewhere with a good hotel etc... you get the picture!

I was thinking maybe somewhere in Scandinavia (Have been to Norway before), or somewhere like Prague or Geneva.

Do you have any places you can recommend me to visit??

Many thanks in advance,
Chris  wave

How about ZRH. Great viewing. The airport tour is availble at the weekend. I was there recently and stayed at the NH hotel. Good value and free shuttle bus

You Europeans have it made. So many unique cultures in a relatively small area.

If I was in your shoes, I'd choose Amsterdam.

That would be my first choice too, but Lanzarote has always looked interesting as a spotting place as well.

PRG in September is not a bad idea. The weather should be really nice for the whole weekend. Lastminute.com has a direct flight with OK from/to LHR for 213 GBP incl. taxes (203 from STN). EasyJet from LGW for 198.

Paphos, Cyprus. Not many spotting opportunities, but plenty of stuff to do during the day and night, and cheap to boot.
