Amsterdam, Berlin or Paris (or ???) for Active (walking), Cultural, Foodie (fine-dining & exotic) 5-day City Trip in July? (self.travel)

Kalenden | Mar 2, 201812:53 AM     3

Hi,

My companion and I want to plan a city trip in July and were doubting between Amsterdam, Berlin or Paris for a city trip.

We explore the city on foot, like to do cultural activities (i.e., museums, activities, ... ) but without taking hours per museum, more of a highlight kind of person. We are from Belgium and prefer to experience things we don't have or have less of or are unique to the city in question. In addition, we are very much foodies and like to do fine dining and especially for exotic cuisines. Very much a fan of tasting menus that highlight a bunch. London was a great trip for this with michelin-level chinese and indian restaurants and world-level english restaurants. For hotel, we prefer something with a swimming pool (starting the day with some lap swimming) and in some sense unique. Budget is not a real issue since this is what we save up for and live for.

Given this information (date and our preferences), what would you recommend? Paris, Berlin or Paris? Or perhaps even another city altogether?
