BRUSSELS (Travel Time: 2.15h)

Wander on one of the world’s most beautiful squares, the Unesco World Heritage Site, the Grand Place; Tassel Hotel, the birthplace of art nouveau, MannekenPis, Europe’s first commercial galleries, and the Comic Museum, where Tintin is the main protagonist.

Chocolate, cheese, and beer are the essential elements of the culinary culture, but there are many more interesting things to try.

AMSTERDAM (Travel Time: 2.20h)

The most famous museums in the city are the Van Gogh Museum and the Rembrandt House Museum, with the world’s largest collection of Dutch art.

The City of Amsterdam

Dam Park, the flower market, Vondelpark, the coffee shop in the city – where cannabis and hashish are legal. And the red light district is one of the most popular spots in the city.

Get around easily by renting a bike like the locals or take the tram. Another option is to go on a canal cruise to get a different take on the area.

LISBON (Travel Time: 2.00h)

Take Tram 28 to get an idea of what Lisbon is all about, passing Estrela, Barrio Alto, Chiado, Graça and Alfama, stopping at the National Pantheon, Cathedral or Sé, the viewpoint at Portas do Sol and São Jorge Castle.

Lisbon portugal skyline

With its stylish decadence, paved roads, tiled façades, fados, cod dishes, and Belem pastries, you’ll fall in love with Lisbon.

MADRID (Travel Time: 1.20h)

There are, in reality, many different Madrids: the Austrian neighborhood in the historic center, where you will find the Plaza Mayor, Puerta del Sol, Plaza de Oriente, Palacio Real and the Cathedral of Almudena.

And where you will have to try churros and Porras in San Ginés; the Madrid of the Paseo del Arte, where you will find the museums of Prado, Thyssen-Bornemisza and Queen Sofia in one kilometer’s distance.

The multilingual Lavapiés; the bohemian neighborhood of Chueca; the authentic Madrid of El Rastro, an open-air market where you can buy anything on Sundays and public holidays; the theaters and musicals of Madrid; and the greener Madrid of El RetiroParc.

SEVILLE (Travel Time: 1.40h)

You can take the AVE high-speed train here by plane or onboard.

Waiting for you is the Giralda, the Gothic Cathedral, the Real Alcázar, María Luisa Park, the Plaza de España and the flamenco spirit of the Triana neighborhood.

Architecture, but also tapas and manzanilla, friendly people, the scent of blooming orange trees, the April fair, and the Easter processions – all the things you’ll never forget.

Temperatures in summer often hit 40 degrees!

BERLIN (Travel Time: 2.50h)

For any day of the year, Berlin is a good option.

Sure, it can get cold in winter, but it’s a treat for Christmas markets. You’re going to be surprised to see so few cars in the area.

center of berlin

Take advantage of their absence and ride to its most emblematic sights with a bike, like native Berliners.

For example the Brandenburg Gate, Potsdamer Platz, Alexanderplatz, the Reichstag, Museum Island, the East Side Gallery, and the Holocaust Memorial.

Berlin is infamous for all the options of partying; they are virtually infinite as night falls.

MUNICH (Travel Time 2.10h)

Munich, located near the Alps in Southern Germany, is home to century-old buildings and numerous museums.

The city is known for its annual Oktoberfest celebration and breweries, including the famous Hofbräuhaus, founded in 1589.

In the Altstadt (Old Town), the central square Marienplatz contains sights such as the Neo-Gothic Neues Rathaus (municipal palace) with a famous glockenspiel show that resonates and re-enacts stories from the 16th century.

PRAGUE (Travel Time: 2.25h)

You get the impression that you’re wandering around a museum in Czechia capital Prague.

prague castle

For great views, ascend up the tower of Saint Vit Cathedral, inside the castle, from where you can see the historic center –  a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Old Town Square, the Town Hall with the astronomical clock on its southern wall, a true sight when it reaches every hour.

Visit the Jewish cemetery and the Charles Bridge. The city’s most famous bridge in Prague, which connects the Old Town with the Lesser Town.

ROME (Travel Time: 1.55h)

Wonders exist everywhere you look – the Roman Forum, the Coliseum, the Pantheon, Navona Square, Trevi Fountain, Trajan Street, St. Peter’s Basilica, Trastevere Quarter…

rome

“Roma, nonbastauna vita,” but do as much as possible and note that Italian food is more than spaghetti, pizza, and ice cream.

BERNE (Travel Time: 1.55h)

Switzerland´s capital is quiet and small, with about 133,000 inhabitants.

Walking through the medieval historic center, a UNESCO World Heritage Site is a delight. 

6 km of arcades and fountains with Renaissance figures, the clock tower, the house-museum of Einstein, the cathedral, the bear pit, and the Paul Klee Centre, dedicated to the Swiss painter.

The picturesque pathways in the center of Altstadt (Old Town), reflect its pre-medieval history.

Thank you so much LEAP! I could not have done it without you. The bureaucracy of Spanish public universities is... overwhelming and they reply only in Spanish. The leap team has helped me to manage all the paperwork and legalization processes in time and get acceptance for my master. Looking forward to start the program!read more

Thank you Tom Miessen and LEAP team!! From the perspective of a parent of a future student in Spain, I can say without... hesitation LEAP has been the key my daughter needed to unlock her Spanish undergraduate education dreams. I admit I was skeptical of many things at first, but Tom patiently explained everything. Even in these uncharted COVID times, LEAP was able to keep the beacon shining! Without LEAP we would have been absolutely lost. As a humble suggestion to the parents of those moving ahead with their dreams of study in Spain, let your young adult do everything. It can be frustrating to want to jump in and help, but over this time of planning and action we have seen our daughter mature greatly and overcome difficulties that will no doubt help prepare her for this part of her journey in life.read more

I got in contact with LEAP late August not expecting much from my consult, however after sitting down and talking with... them about wanting to go to Spain and my personal situations, they quickly and effectively were able to give me a personalized plan/proposal with what my study in Spain would look like. Any obstacle I faced they were always a quick text away and readily available with a realistic solution or an alternative. After receiving my proposal I immediately decided to start working with them, a month later I received my visa and was on my way to Spain. The process was quick and not as difficult because I was working with them. Honestly this experience would not be possible for me without their assistance and guidance every step of the way. Thank you!! :)read more

They worked with my budget, helped me with documentation and helped me get accepted to a great school in Barcelona. Their services are effective and affordable. I would 100% recommend LEAP to anyone looking for an education in Spain.read more

LEAP’s services are totally worth it and highly recommended. They have been amazing by helping me throughout the... whole process, supporting and explaining me all the steps to get my NIE and Social Security Number done in time. I also want to underline the extra effort they made to accomodate as much as possible my requests when getting the NIE appointment. They have always been not only competent but also kind and patient with me. I couldn’t have done it so smoothly by myself, thank you!read more
