We may be waving a sad farewell to summer here in the UK, but the good news is that the months leading up to Christmas can be the ideal time to plan a city break. The number of tourists in many of the most popular spots decreases significantly at this time of year, yet the temperatures are ideal for a spot of sightseeing.

You could consider a weekend in the wonderful Hungarian capital, Budapest. This is a city that offers something to suit all tastes and budgets and is one of the most attractive in all Europe. Budapest is neatly divided by the broad River Danube, with the ancient part - Buda - offering a whole host of opportunities to dip into the long and fascinating history of the region. Pest has a more modern feel and is the ideal location to try some of the cuisine for which Hungary is rightly famed.

After a hard day of sightseeing, there’s no better place to head than one of Budapest’s fabulous thermal baths, to steam away the day and prepare for a night out on the town.

Another ideal destination for an autumn break is the truly delightful city of Reykjavik. The jewel in Iceland’s crown, Reykjavik has a magical feel and more stunning natural features than you could shake a stick at. Be prepared to stand in awe in front of volcanoes, glaciers, mud pools and, if you are very lucky indeed, the elusive Northern Lights. Iceland is a wonderful location to get out and about in the landscape, so pack your hiking boots and binoculars, and get ready to explore!

Stockholm is another destination that may not be on your radar but should be for a multitude of reasons. Located across no fewer than fourteen pretty islands, this is a city which simply exudes history. Take some time out to wander around the ancient winding streets in the Gamla Stan district, or go and learn more about the city in one of the several well-appointed museums. As night fall, you will find that Stockholm cones alive, with plenty of great restaurants, bars and clubs to choose from.

Finally, why not think outside the box and head to Munich for your autumn adventure? While it’s true that this city is synonymous with its huge beer festival, there is so much more to this fascinating place. Pop down to verdant English Garden - the biggest park in the city - where you will find yourself in a cool oasis of woodland and you can relax and commune with nature. Those with an interest in history should not miss the opportunity to travel outside the city and visit the Dachau Concentration Camp. Thought-provoking and fascinating, this is one of those experiences that will stay with you long after you return home.
