Krakow, Poland: Like Prague, without all the tourists. And more walkable.

I also like the guy who plays the town's theme song on the trumpet from the tower. And the new town is every bit as fun as the old.

Madrid, Spain: My nomination for the under-rated city of Europe. It often gets overshadowed by Barcelona, which I didn't care for quite as much. The Prado museum is a must see.
100% agreed with both of these... Krakow is fantastic... I was in Gdansk a couple of months ago and it was great as well. Ive been tossing around the idea of a 10 day trip to Poland to see other cities and these two again. Madrid is great, we are going in February and can't wait.

My list is in no particular order of ranking, just ones I liked more than some others. I list these as if I were a tourist to visit cities for their beauty, architecture and quality of museums.

Paris
Prague
Rome
Vienna
St. Petersburg

Krakow
Strasborg
Munich
Barcelona
Basel
Bern

A few comments about the most popular larger cities, I didn't care for London much, but it probably is more ideal to visit for a first time visitor outside the US. The museums there were among my favorites. Amsterdam was just alright, but it was not that scenic to me as compared to other larger European cities. I hope to return soon to somewhere in Europe, maybe a business trip next time.

A must visit: Neuschwanstein Castle, Germany, a 19th century palace built up on a rugged hill, the most well known and visited castle in all of Europe.

Innsbruck, Austria= Another lovely city to wander around with shops and cosy cafes. Surrounded by the scenic craggy peaks of the Austrian Alps.

I have been to most of these, all worth visiting if someone prefers to stay out of the much larger cities. I did not see Neuschwanstein yet but have been to several really great places in Bavaria.

I find Paris overrated.

Two come to mind:
Amsterdam, Netherlands - I'd move there tomorrow if given the opportunity.
Brugges, Belgium - lovely, small, quaint
