Cheapest European city to fly to from Chicago?

Looking to meet a friend in Europe in May. She's in Holland so I'm looking for any city in central/north central Europe. Flying out of Chicago.

Any suggestion would be appreciated!

Thanks.

There is no cheapest city, you will have to do the legwork by checking yourself on Skyscanner/Kayak/matrixita etc.

I think if you need to meet your friend in NL then probably it would be best to fly there and not have to incur extra costs to get to her. Around $1k to $1100 seems to be the normal price ORD to AMS these days

Finnair seems to run a lot of specials to Helsinki from ORD so make sure to check that. Turkish Airlines often runs specials to Istanbul if you can make that work even though it is not central/north Europe.

Generally I'd check the wiki page of whatever airport I'm flying out of to see which destination is served by the most number of airlines - that would give you an idea of how much competition there is on a given route which might mean good prices.
