Prague, Vienna & Budapest

MULTI-COUNTRY : TOURS - EUROPE

Prague, Vienna & Budapest
9 Day Tour from Munich to Munich

Magnificent Cities of Prague, Vienna & Budapest Tour, featuring a blend of history, intellectual & artistic past in Central Europe. Discover the former Habsburg Empire, Imperial palaces, Opera houses, guided tours, and local restaurants. This tour itinerary starts and ends in Munich. Along the way, you’ll overnight in some of Central Europe's most exciting cities: Prague, Vienna, Budapest, and Salzburg.

In Prague, Vienna, and Budapest, join your Local Guides—experts who will share with you the history and secrets in their cities—for sightseeing of the must-see sights. Among the sights in Prague is Charles Bridge, dating to 1357 and one of the oldest stone bridges in Europe, and the Astronomical Clock, built-in 1410 with a sinister medieval figure of death who emerges to pull the bell cord. In Budapest, see the Parliament building, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, considered one of the world’s most beautiful parliament buildings, and Fishermen’s Bastion, which overlooks the city. In Vienna, view the Hofburg, the palatial complex and the political focal point for the Hapsburgs. You’ll have time on your own in Vienna to sit in a café with a piece of delicious Sachertorte while listening to a legendary waltz or explore the inside of St. Stephen’s Cathedral with its Romanesque and gothic architecture.

In Nuremberg, wander through the charming, pedestrian Old Town with its impressive medieval ramparts. In Salzburg, you may want to walk through the quaint streets of the town center and maybe visit Mozart’s house, or just browse through the typical shops to taste some of the delicious chocolates.

The beautiful scenery of the Alps and the Danube River make this a comprehensive tour through Central Europe.
