Cant we make a poll with about 10 of the cities mentioned here so we can all vote? I do not have a favourite as long as there is beer available. 

Also, for me it would be really nice to have a set date asap so I can make sure I have that time off from work.

I gues Prague has been mentioned the most so far ... although I'd rather sit on the beach in subtropical Dubrovnik or Split .... I can agree to Prague.

I'm laughing at the Dutch, Utrecht and Groningen beautiful ffs?? get out more, try somewhere like Dusseldorf, airport and lots of pubs and restaurants, the Dutch can even walk there lol! Better still Cork in Eire, flights can be reasonable if booked in advance. If it's one of the best nights out in the world (official) with loads to do try Newcastle upon Tyne, loads of night life, great communication links, loads of restaurants, loads of shops, ferry from Holland, flights everywhere and nearby seafront, i.e. something for all. If you like beautiful countryside, castles and history head 20 miles North and you're in it.

I've lived north of Newcastle for a bit - one of the most beautiful places! 

 

Another option could be Edinburgh, but I will understand if the price is an issue. It is quite expensive city (at least for a student) unless you're OK with spending time in jd wetherspoons... 

 

Riga or Vilnius could be fun. I could be a guide for Vilnius!

I guess that is cheap isn't it. All EU destinations are cheap. EasyJet goes to all of them directly afaik.

They're not all cheap, I thought Edd was mental so I looked up Stuttgart - Bratislava, and I have to say, holy fucking sheepshaggers. Four digit airfare is not on my budget, I just bought a car.

Now, it is possible that july is the wrong time to book flights for. So let's grab some dates, make a list of the big cities, and draw up who can go when and what cities are OK with them, taking only serious suggestions (i.e. reachable by air and can get around with short rides on public transport, not the Ardennes where everything is a million hours away from civilization and once you get in the middle of nowhere you have to bring your own car, or Truro, which as far as I can work out would be cheaper to move it to us, rather than the other way round).

We picked July before because it's just before the big school vacations (lower prices for travel and hotel) and the weahter tends to be many nice.

Shall we begin by picking which weekends in June/July/August would be doable for everyone?

Oh by the way one eye guy, it's the XI EUROPE meet-up. So we have it in Europe. You're welcome to come, but it ain't gonna be in Atlanta (which, apart from everything else, is a mosquito infested toaster oven of a hellscape six months out of the year and thus not ideal for meet-ups even on it's own continent, I must hasten to add.)

Dubrovnik and Split are both under €200 in July as well (round trip) by air so that seems affordable, on the Mediterranean sea. I think that sounds like a pretty damned sweet location, and for me it's just as much work to fly there as it is to drive to Belgistan.

anyway, in case we agree to go to Croatia we need to decide quickly, so that we're going to get a decent affordable  hotel. No biggie though on booking.com for the moment due to free cancelation etc.

Edit: how do I get that XI Fest Berlin Medal? I was there :-)

Brussels sounds good and affordable. Good to get to for the UK guys, good for the Dutch guys and even for the French and German guys. Timewise i suggest late June early July. 

 

Read about getting to Budapest being expensive. No idea to book it as a citytrip with flight, hotel and breakfast included? That`s how i found a couple of cheap ones.....
