Enjoy long summer days with bmi regional
- 09th June 2015
EUROPE’S MOST ENCHANTING CITIES ARE EVEN BETTER VALUE WHEN THE DAYS ARE LONGER
Fly with bmi regional to one of Europe’s most exciting cities in June or July and get even better value for money, with more daylight hours to get out and about and explore. The enticing destinations on bmi regional’s extensive route network boast up to 19 hours of daylight in summer, meaning passengers can make the most of their visit to Scandinavian treasures Esbjerg or Oslo from Aberdeen, or German gems such as Munich and Dusseldorf from Bristol, from as little as £79pp one way.
As everyone knows, sunshine and the great outdoors are proven mood-lifters, while the added extras that come as standard with bmi regional – including a generous 20kg of checked baggage per person, a full at-seat bar and snack service and 30-minute check-in – provide an added boost to the feel-good factor this summer.
The Norwegian capital has over 19 hours of daylight every day in June and July – plenty of opportunity to explore the waterfront, take a cruise on the Oslofjord, visit the 80-acre Vigelandsparken sculpture park and take in the panoramic views of the city from the Holmenkollen ski jump observation deck. The adventurous can try some Norwegian specialities such as moose or reindeer; seafood fans will be spoilt for choice while fine-dining foodies can book a table at one of the city’s Michelin-starred restaurants. Oslo also has an exciting music scene and many of its museums have free admission on a Sunday.
From Aberdeen – from £87pp one way
The summertime sun doesn’t set until gone 9pm in the capital of Bavaria, giving around 16 hours each day to explore Munich’s full calendar of events, such as the Munich Film Festival (June 26-July 4), the multicultural Tollwood Summer Festival (June 24-July 19) in the Olympic Park and free open-air performances on selected dates during July’s Opera Festival in July. During the day, enjoy wholesome Bavarian food, let kids loose in the vast Englischer Garten, ride a pedalo and do some leisurely shopping.
From Bristol – from £79pp one way
Denmark’s fifth-largest city basks in over 17 hours of daylight in midsummer, with the sun finally going down at gone 10pm. Attractions include the awe-inspiring nine-meter-high sculpture Man Meets the Sea, as well as nature reserves, hiking and cycling all nearby. A short 12-minute ferry ride from Esbjerg is Fano island, with magnificent beaches, cycle paths, and a number of bunkers from World War II waiting to be explored. The island is famous for its remarkable tidal fluctuation – when the tide is out, it’s possible to walk for several kilometres from the shoreline before reaching the water. For families, Legoland is an hours’ drive away. From Aberdeen – from £160pp one way
With over 16 hours’ daylight in June and July, there’s more than enough time to explore Dusseldorf’s museums, theatres and restaurants, wander its Rhine embankment promenade and admire the city’s stunning architecture or take a boat tour on the river Rhine. From July 17-29, the city holds the Biggest Funfair on the Rhine, a 700-year tradition attracting millions of people to enjoy its beer tents, brass bands and unique entertainment.
From Bristol – from £79pp one way
