This Central Europe tour is a magnificent journey through the former Habsburg Empire. Your tour starts and ends in Munich with an orientation of the city. Along the way, you will overnight in some of Central Europe's most exciting cities: Prague, Budapest, Vienna, and Salzburg.

In each of these cities, you will enjoy guided sightseeing of the must-see sights with a Local Guide. Among the sights you will see in Prague, visit the 1000-year-old Hradčany Castle grounds, the largest castle complex in the world, and the Astronomical Clock, built in 1410 and once the envy of all of Europe. In Budapest, enjoy a panoramic view of the city from Fishermen's Bastion and visit 13th-century Matthias Coronation Church, the coronation spot of several Hungarian monarchs. In Vienna, among the many sights you will see, you’ll visit St. Stephen's Cathedral, a symbol of Vienna. In Salzburg, your walking tour includes beautiful Mirabell Gardens.

Spectacular scenery also awaits you on this Central Europe vacation. You'll drive through the lovely Salzkammergut Lakeland to picturesque Salzburg. Additionally, you'll enjoy a leisurely Danube cruise (on April 9th – October 1st departures) along the most scenic section of the river. During your cruise, enjoy Kaffee und Kuchen (coffee and cake). This special experience—along with a visit to Munich's famous Hofbräuhaus (its best known beer hall dating back to 1589)—is included by Globus to ensure your vacation is unique.

At the end of your tour, transfer via high-speed train to Berlin for three overnights and guided sightseeing with picture stops at the Brandenburg Gate and Holocaust Memorial. All services in Berlin, including Local Host assistance, are provided by Monograms.

WERNER HARTLIEB

Years of Experience: 22

I enjoy sharing insights about the always-changing countries of Central Europe. What I like just as much, if not more, is the camaraderie that guests form. With each tour, I am astonished by this. A group of strangers at the start, they get acquainted with each other in a pleasant way and sometimes take home friendships for life. I think it is great this takes place while exploring new regions and discovering new cultures.
