Itinerary

Berlin (2 Nights)

You’ll meet the rest of your group and your Tour Leader in the late afternoon at your first hostel. If you need an extra night before your tour starts to fit in with your flights then you can add this at check-out.

Berlin is the capital of cool- one of the most fascinating cities in Europe and a hub of incredible food, drink and nightlife. The place that used to be the embodiment of division in the world has become a celebration of unity. Berlin isn’t your typical tourist playground; it’s tolerant, eccentric, artistic and ultimately pretty awesome!

Whether you want to check out Berlin’s world-famous tourist attractions or explore the city’s vibrant up-and-coming areas, Berlin has something for everyone.

Train to Prague – 5 hours

Prague (2 Nights)

A city that has swept back the Iron Curtain and emerged as a gleaming gem of Central Europe, Prague is a cultural and nightlife hotspot. Beer connoisseurs- this could well be your favourite stop. The Czech are famous for their ability to brew some of the worlds tastiest (and cheapest) Pilsners.

Beer not your thing? Not to worry! There is plenty else to do in this incredible city. Why not try traditional chimney cakes? Or wander the cobbled streets of the Old Town, taking in the sights and smells of one of Europe’s most sensory destinations.

Train to Vienna – 4 hours

Vienna (1 Night)

One of the most visually stunning cities in Europe, we can’t put into words how much we recommend a trip to Vienna.
A romantic getaway for a couple of any age or even a cultural break for a group of friends, the Austrian capital is not a destination to miss on your travels.

Be sure to try out traditional Schnitzel and Apple Strudel whilst you’re here- although you can get these dishes anywhere, the original, and the best, can still be found in Vienna!

  Included: Prater Park/Paddleboarding (season dependent)

  Suggestion:Visit the Spanish riding school of Vienna

  Suggestion: Eat real Apple Strudel and Wiener Schnitzel

Budapest (2 nights)

Pull into one of Budapest’s many train stations and prepare to be blown away by this Bohemian city. The Hungarian capital is one of Central Europe’s biggest: a bustling and artistic city, overflowing with quirky restaurants, nightlife and stunning architecture.

Enjoy wandering the streets of the Jewish quarter – spotting murals on every corner or chose to discover the beautiful architecture of the Fisherman’s Bastion and the Hungarian Parliament. After this jam-packed week we’ll relax in the world famous Szechenyi Baths!

You’ll say farewell to your new friends (for the time being at least!) on the last morning, but if you’d like to have some extra time to explore you can include a night of post-trip accommodation before flying home the following day.
