Another hidden gems that i found during my study abroad in Europe is monschau. The city is really small, however it designs beautifully and pretty. I do feel like living in a fairytale when i visited there. It looks a bit like disneyland as well....More

This is really one of the gems of the world. The layout of the town is like a fairy tale and there is a postcard picture at every turn. The shops and restaurants look very quaint and it is all very walkable.
