One of the best ways to connect with a city is by exploring its outdoor spaces under your own steam.

In this issue, we set off on a series of urban adventures, including dipping into some of Europe's best spots for city swimming, from Icelandic geothermal pools to the ponds at Hampstead Heath in London. We then pedal through some of the best metropolises to explore on two wheel, before setting off on hiking trips and walking tours around the continent's bet green spaces located in or around cities.

And, of course, there's our round up of the best hotels and resorts, brought to you by our advertising partners, to help inspire you when planning your next city escape.
