Five of the Best: European Cities for Stag Weekends

An increasing number of stag do groups are choosing to have their big weekend in Europe rather than staying local.

With the wide range of flight options at reasonable prices, it makes sense to consider getting off for a bit of sun and a change of scenery, not to mention plenty of European beers to take advantage of. As you look across the stag weekend Europe options, you may be unsure which one suits you best, so we thought we put together a short stag party Europe hitlist and see if any of them took your fancy.


Amsterdam is famous in large part for having slightly more ‘relaxed’ laws on a range of different entertainments, but there are many other benefits on offer for a stag party.

The city has a number of fantastic bars, including the famous ice bar, with the Dutch taking their beer very seriously. In terms of group activities, the city has current favourites such as escape rooms, go karting, bubble football, quad bikes and paintball, with the opportunity for package deals for stag groups.

For football fans looking for the perfect stag party Europe destination, you could enjoy an Amsterdam arena stadium tour or even a trip to see the mighty Ajax play, while for those looking for something a little more relaxing, you could enjoy a bike tour of the city, a food tour and/or craft beer tasting. In terms of nightlife, there are stag weekend Europe package deals that can include a trip to the casino, or a hop around a few nightclubs, as well as the option for clubs with ‘other’ focuses.


Sun, sea, sand and sangria. We all know the attractions of Ibiza for holidays, but it can also be a great place for a European stag weekend, with options such as go karting, quad biking, speed boat tours, bungee activities.

It still is, of course, one of the party capitals of Europe, so there will be plenty of beach parties, boat parties and nightclub parties to satisfy that aspect of a stag weekend. Overall, a winning combination.


The famous Portuguese city of Lisbon also offers a range of familiar stag do activities.

Go karting, paintball, laser tag, jeep safari and bubble football all available, as well as the chance for your group to ‘enjoy’ a football match vs a local team, with the enjoyment part possibly depending on the final score!

If you want to experience football in slightly more prestigious surroundings, you can book in for a stadium tour or go to a match at either famous Lisbon team, with one of Benfica or Sporting Lisbon likely to be playing at home most weekends of the year (other than June and July).

As for summertime parties, there are a range of beach parties and VIP nightclub guest list options, with the quality of Lisbon’s nightlife making it a leading European stag party destination.


Prague has long been a popular European stag do destination, with cheap beer and accommodation making it the perfect place for a short stay on affordable terms.

While it is not as cheap as it used to be, it’s still a great option, one with all the favourite stag do activities, and a few more besides.

Not only can you enjoy paintball, go karting or bubble football, but for those wanting something a little more intense, you can go on a tank ride, or even sign up for some AK-47 shooting! Throw in a healthy array of bar crawls and steak dinners and you’re onto a winner. The city even has a private beer spa, where you not only get to drink unlimited beer, but can also try bathing in it!


The Polish city of Warsaw is another that has been popular for its reasonable pricing and selection of food and drink options.

Once again, it can offer many of the staple stag activities, with go karting, paintballing and laser tag, or for something a little more fancy you can book in for a session driving a sports car on a private track.

It really excels on the food and drink front, with slap up meals available at great value, especially for a group booking, while on the drinks front you can enjoy a craft beer tour, a party bar crawl or a session tasting some of the world’s best vodkas.
