The sun has got his hat on and is showing our outdoor lounges in their best light.
We love it here because you’re in the heart of Munich and yet surrounded by green – and right by one of Munich’s bedrocks, the Nockherberg.
Our top gin recommendation for balmy summer evenings is a Munich original: its delicate lemony aroma makes the Soul of Bavaria Gin wonderfully fresh.
If you need to cool off on hot days, you don’t have far to go: you can get to the Isar, or more precisely the bathing spot on the eastern side of the Reichenbach Bridge, in next to no time.
We love it here because you can find your spot here whether you’re a sun worshipper or you prefer a bit of shade – and you can hardly get any closer to the Vienna Prater.
Our top gin recommendation is perfect for the warmest time of the year: with its hint of elderflower, the fruity-floral Wien Gin tastes of summer itself.
If you need to cool off on hot days, then get yourself down to one of the most beautiful natural bathing spots in Vienna – the Kaiserwasser (close to U-Bahn station ‘Kaisermühlen VIC’).
We love it here because our outdoor lounge is a true oasis of calm in the heart of the capital city of Europe. The newly redesigned gardens and the relaxing sound of the fountain lend a special atmosphere to your time in the open air.
Our top gin recommendation is a taste of the exotic: there are resonating notes of apricot and orange in the aroma of Copperhead – The Alchemist’s Gin.
If you need to cool off on hot days, we recommend a scoop of ice cream – or even two – from the Bargello ice cream parlour, just five minutes’ walk from our Motel One.
We love it here because not only are you closer to the sun on our roof terrace, you also have an exceptional view over Augustusplatz.
Our top gin recommendation for an evening drink overlooking the roofs of Leipzig: with its hint of citrus, Dresdner Gin delivers a fruity-fresh taste.
If you need to cool off on hot days, you’re spoilt for choice. Lakes Zwenkau, Hain, Schladitz and Cospuden make up Leipzig’s Neuseeland lake district, and are sure to keep water lovers happy.
We love it here because it doesn’t get much more laid-back than this: in our courtyard surrounded by typical British brick buildings, it’s easy to find rest and relaxation.
Our top gin recommendation is surprisingly different from what its name might suggest: Bulldog Gin is smooth, flowery and has an extremely gentle flavour.
If you need to cool off on warm days, then Newcastle lets you see the sea: the sandy beaches of Tynemouth are just 30 minutes away on the metro.
