Home to some of the world’s most celebrated cultural touchstones, Central Europe was built for exploration. This nine-day adventure crosses four countries and makes stops in four of Europe's most fascinating cities — Berlin, Vienna, Prague, and Budapest. From the Brandenburg Gate to Prague’s Charles Bridge, from a 16th-century market in Vienna to a walking tour of the Berlin Wall with a local historian, step into the past — and enjoy every minute in the present.

Trip highlights

Brandenburg Gate Visit, The Brandenburg Gate is a spot of great historical significance. Witness the spot where hundreds of thousands of people were finally able to cross from the east side to the west after the fall of the wall. Walk the cobblestones of the surrounding Pariser Platz and mingle with locals who continue to gather here to see stage shows and celebrate public events.

Naschmarkt Walk, Walk through Vienna’s 16th century Naschmarkt alongside a local chef. Learn about the market’s storied history and gain insight into the city’s local cuisine and food culture. (And of course, enjoy numerous tastings of cheeses, sausages, and oils.)

Prague Guided City Tour, Enjoy a guided tour of the old town including the Jewish quarter, astronomical clock, Charles Bridge, and Wenceslas Square. Visit all the major sights of the Old Town and simply soak up the atmosphere of a unique community where every street, inn, or theatre tells a story.

Saint Stephen's Cathedral Visit, St. Stephen’s Cathedral is one of Vienna’s main landmarks complete with a 343-step climb up a spiral staircase to look out over the city.

Walk the Berlin Wall with a Historian, Walk sections of the Berlin Wall with a local historian. Along the way, you’ll hear about the political, social, and cultural impact of the wall, from when it was erected to its eventual fall.
