The Best Cities to Watch the World Cup
The World Cup in Brazil is less than 100 days away and while it is too expensive for most of us to fly out to Rio Di Janeiro, that isn’t to say we should avoid watching the football in a foreign city. Below are some of the best places in Europe in which to watch a game…
The party capital and the second largest city in Germany, Hamburg really is the best place in Germany to watch the World Cup. Expectations are high in Germany, who are currently third favourites with Paddy Power to win the competition, so expect an absorbing atmosphere. With open-air television screens and free flowing lager, spirits should be high and if Germany win, expect the place to explode. The nightlife in Hamburg is among the best in Europe and a two-night stay isn’t going to break the bank.
The Croatian capital is perhaps the most economically viable place to visit. The Eastern Europe country has a beautiful Mediterranean feel to it but offers Eastern European prices. You will have the sun on your side and you will get plenty of bang for your buck. Zagreb is a good city and a good place to visit.
Belgium is an absolutely beautiful country and a place of real culture. The cobbled streets and the outside bars make Brussels a cracking place to visit. What’s more is that the Belgians are expected to do well at this year’s World Cup, so there should be plenty of Belgians lining the streets and cheering on the Red Devils. You don’t even need to fly! It’s a country that is easily accessible by car and if you do choose to drive you can stop off at Holland and France.
What is for sure is that if you want to do the World Cup justice, you should head over to mainland Europe. You will meet an eclectic mix of people all cheering on their various nations, and you will make memories that will last a lifetime.
