If you’re looking to tick off 3 of the world’s best party cities in just one week, you need the Ultimate Pub Crawl in your life. With plenty of time to nurse those hangovers, our 1 week trip is the perfect way to mix the best of Europe’s nightlife with a touch of culture too.
The perfect trip for anyone wanting to explore the unique and lesser-visited side of Europe
Our Ultimate Pub Crawl has well and truly earned its name. While many may fear its intensity, we know that there are those brave souls who embrace this route with open arms. Storming through three amazing European cities, you’ll get a whirlwind tour of culture, food and nightlife in just 8 days of fast-paced travel.
First, hit up Amsterdam, home to some of the best nightlife in the world! Be sure to explore its myriad of cafes before heading out to enjoy the city’s many bars and clubs; this stunning city holds much more than watering holes, what with its beautiful canals, fascinating museums, and amazing parks. It’d be a shame to miss out on all the culture Amsterdam has to offer, so if you want to combine the chilled and party elements, why not go for our 1-week package to give yourself more time to explore?
Next up is Berlin, the capital of alternative nightlife and underground subcultures. Once you’ve made yourself at home, why not take a leisurely walking tour to drink in the sights? It’s the perfect precursor to drinking in all of the golden nectar on offer in the city’s numerous pubs! Check out our Europe’s best bars guide to figure out which of Berlin’s drinking spots serve up the finest beers. You can always let us know the results of your “experiment” when you get back!
Prague, the City of a Hundred Spires, is your next and final stop. With amazing Baroque architecture and Gothic churches to explore, you’ll have plenty of things to post on Insta! Enjoy the sights in this equally stunning and quirky city, before making your way around its cheap cafes and bars. Prague is known for its underground nightlife and secret bars, so let your cup runneth over! Alternatively, why not finish your trip off in style with a beer tour organised by your hostel? With Prague being the home of the famous Garlic Soup, you’ll surely recover quickly with what locals claim is the world’s best hangover cure… we have a feeling you might need it after a week on our Ultimate Pub Crawl!

I CANNOT recommend this travel agency enough! I booked a surprise honeymoon for my nephew and his spouse with Euroventure Travel Ltd. and their customer service is unparalleled! For reference, I live in the US and wanted to plan a multi-country trip via rail through Europe for my nephew and his spouse for their honeymoon. They helped me customize the trip, (3 countries) keep in a budget I wanted, and picked out some amazing hotels all within the city centers of their itineraries. I wanted the trip to include a a few countries, but I didn't have a huge budget, and they really worked with me to make this an amazing trip! We went through a few scenarios, trying to decide what would be the best itinerary for the time period and budget I was able to afford. It was great. There were a few times that I had simple (and sometimes complicated) questions regarding the trip and I would email the travel team in the evening and wake up to detailed responses in the morning. If I emailed during their working hours, I received an almost instant response from the team, not an automated response. I honestly felt like I was talking to a friend and not a travel company. I can't thank them enough for helping me plan an unforgettable honeymoon for my loved ones!! If you are planning a holiday via rail throughout Europe and need help planning, look no further, Euroventure Travel is the agency you want to use for your holiday!!!!!

I had the most amazing time on the Iron Curtain Tour! We managed to fit so much into the week, with so many great recommendations by our awesome tour leader. Any difficulties as a cause of current travel situations were resolved without issue, and I always felt safe. Euroventure tours are to the best places, with the best people, and I cannot recommend them enough. Please do yourself a favour and book with them!

The Iron Curtain Tour I went on was a great adventure! Euroventure was responsive with communication and on the tour the hostels were wonderful! My group was affected by the pandemic closures, but we made the most of it and Euroventure kept us updated throughout the week. No issues during travel!
