As our long Bank Holiday weekend rapidly approaches, many of us will be planning to get away for an Easter break, and motorhome hire makes the perfect choice to get away from it all and spend a few days exploring fascinating new destinations. If you want to really immerse yourself in the festivities of the season, there are many great European locations which are ideal for visiting in your motorhome.
Here are some of our top picks for destinations where you can enjoy the ultimate Easter break.
Seville, Spain. This is home to one of Europe’s most breathtaking Easter traditions in the form of Semana Santa de Sevilla, or Holy Week, which has been happening since medieval times and is a highly significant date on the Catholic calendar. Spectacular processions take place throughout the city, with people bearing wooden sculptures and riding floats depicting the
Virgin Mary and the Passion of Christ, accompanied by brass bands and drummers.
Brussels, Belgium. For chocolate lovers, Easter is a time to indulge, and what better place to do that than in Belgium, home of some of the world’s finest chocolatiers? The shop windows are piled high with gorgeous Easter eggs, there are many family Easter activities to enjoy, and as the weather is getting warmer now is the perfect time to explore this lovely city on foot.
Amsterdam, Netherlands. Amsterdam is famous for its flowers, and at this time of the year they are in full bloom. All the way through April, the fields around the city are a riot of colour and scent as tulips, crocuses and daffodils spring into life. Flower lovers will enjoy the Amsterdam Tulip Museum and Keukenhof Gardens, where you can take in events such as the annual Flower Parade.
Prague, Czech Republic. Easter brings the famous Easter markets to the Czech capital, centred around the picturesque Wenceslas Square and Old Town Square. This year’s event will feature almost 100 stalls offering beautiful handmade crafts and products as well as delicious traditional foods, including pastries, cakes and barbecued meats. There are also plenty of opportunities to take part in traditional Easter-themed activities, such as candle making and egg decorating, making this a wonderful destination for a family Easter break.
