Northern Europe with Relais & Châteaux

Most of the countries of Northern Europe share the same coastline. For some, it’s the North Sea; for others, the Baltic.
Nevertheless, their spirit also expresses itself on land. The Flemish spirit is embodied in Bruges, called the “Venice of the North”, while the spirit of Wallonia resides in the enchanting and pastoral southern part of Belgium. Then, by crossing the Belgium border to the south, you’ll arrive in Luxembourg, where the word “multicultural” is given true meaning, enriching this tiny country. Farther to the north lie the Netherlands, where you can enjoy bicycling throughout its vast marshlands. Covered with fields of multi-coloured tulips, the country’s symbol, the Netherlands is a land of many faces. Marking the division between the North and Baltic Seas, Denmark is a country with so much water all around that having sea legs is an advantage! This peninsula, the birthplace of novelist and poet Hans Christian Andersen, is a source of wonderful stories about...the Little Mermaid!

Much vaster and farther east, Poland will share the secrets of its sometimes turbulent past. Krakow, the ancient capital of the 14th century Polish kings, has retained an architectural splendour considered among the most beautiful in Northern Europe. Here, you can walk on foot through the Gothic and Baroque periods, which are echoed by the churches, palaces, house façades and museums. Rather than being a just a living museum, Krakow moves to the rhythm of its youth, its cafes, gardens and Planty Park, which can also provide you with a few moments of leisure.

Even farther east, Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania, also merits a detour. Its Baroque-style architectural treasures are designated as UNESCO World Heritage sites, making visits to its historic centre a pleasure. The same goes for Riga, the capital of neighbouring Latvia and the largest city of the Baltic States. Here the Baroque gives way to Art Nouveau façades that are also designated as UNESCO World Heritage sites. Tallin, the capital of Estonia, faces Helsinki on the other side of the Gulf of Finland. The coloured façades of its main square, Raekoja Plats, sets the tone for this medieval jewel that attracts crowds of tourists each year.

Northern Europe, elegant and charming, has all the qualities necessary to captivate connoisseurs of cultural heritage and picturesque sites. Within this setting, our Relais & Châteaux offer singular hospitality in cosy accommodations where staying is a pleasure.
