When you want to kick back and party with your friends and want somewhere a bit different to your usual venues on a Saturday night, why not book some cheap flights to European destinations to sample the nightlife of other countries and to soak up the culture and atmosphere along with many others from around the world.

Everyone across Europe knows how to have a great time but some places really excel when it comes to great music and locations to really let your hair down.

Here are the top 5 locations in Europe to organise a trip to.

Mykonos, Greece

This is the first destination to put on your bucket list if you like to party day and night. The beaches are alive to the sound of raves as the sun beats down and when the evening arrives, it’s time to head to the down town area for a night of fun until the sun comes back up again.

The best known meeting point on the island is the Skandinavian Bar in Chora. Head from there to the Moni Club and then perhaps see in the dawn at Astra.

Barcelona, Spain

A city full of party people who are all night owls. Catch some sleep in the afternoon as you’ll need your stamina through the night. With everything kicking off from 1-2am, you will find yourself on a whirlwind tour of shot bars, wall to wall clubbing and uniquely themed parties. The best venues are scattered throughout different neighbourhoods rather than being centred in one part so plan your stay and pace yourself to be able to visit them all. Start at Las Ramblas before moving on to the Gothic quarter, then El Born and finish in the edgy bars of Raval.

Krakow, Poland

Krakow is a city which has set itself up to be a party destination. Book into just about any of the hostels and you can sign up for their bar tours where you’ll meet new friends and know you won’t get lost trying to find your accommodation at the end of the night. If you want to experience the nightlife yourself, it’s easy to plan your own night out as there’s a bar on virtually every corner and lots of vodka to toast the night away.

Amsterdam, Netherlands

This city is so focused on everyone having a great time, it has appointed a mayor specifically tasked with managing the nightlife of this famous party destination. There are world-class clubs to enjoy with Sugar Factory and NDSM Docklands being the places to be seen to be hanging out. During the summer you can head just outside of Amsterdam for daytime clubbing sessions at Woodstock ’69 on the coast.

Berlin, Germany

Possibly the clubbing capital of Europe, Berlin is the king of techno with DJ’s taking over locations such as abandoned warehouses or chic boutique bars offering VIP nights for those who really know how to party. For the ultimate techno fans, the quest will be to secure entry to Berghain. It’s not easy to get through the doors as the queues are long but persevere for a night – and day – to remember.
