With castles, palaces, beautiful scenery, historical sights, and cultural treats, this Munich, Salzburg & Vienna tour is sure to delight all of your senses! You'll overnight in Munich, Salzburg, and Vienna, and you'll also spend time in Innsbruck and Mondsee.

If you love castles and palaces, you will enjoy visiting Neuschwanstein Castle in Germany. Built by King Ludwig II, this fairytale castle offers magnificent views of the Alps and was the inspiration for Walt Disney. Schönbrunn Palace in Vienna offers another treat and glimpse into the life of royalty. Modeled after France's Palace of Versailles, you'll stand in awe as you witness the splendor and hear the stories highlighting the lifestyle of the Habsburgs, the royal family who ruled Vienna for centuries.

You’ll also enjoy time in Munich, Germany's "Secret Capital," where you'll visit the lively Marienplatz. Here, admire the New Town Hall with its famous glockenspiel, which re-creates a 16th-century wedding. In Salzburg, your walking tour includes the magnificent Residenz Square, where some scenes from the Sound of Music movie were filmed, and a visit to Mozart's birthplace, where you will see mementos owned by him, such as his childhood violin.

But that's not all...on this Munich, Salzburg & Vienna tour, Globus has arranged some out-of-the-ordinary experiences for you. Enjoy a Danube cruise (except the December 11th departure) along the most scenic section of the river, and during the cruise, enjoy Kaffee und Kuchen (coffee and cake). Also enjoy dinner with wine and a classical music concert in Vienna—just another way that Globus brings these destinations to life. All you have to do is grab your camera and get ready for a wonderful vacation experience!
