Nice to know

The weather is somewhat unpredictable and can quickly change from bright sunshine to rain. You can check the weather forecast here

It is perfectly safe to drink water straight from the tap.

Remember to bring practical footwear that is comfortable to wear and water resistant. That way you should be able to go all day without changing shoes. We also recommend a waterproof jacket or coat. A warm sweater or cardigan is a must if you want to keep warm outdoors during the long, light summer nights. And don’t forget your sunglasses!
