Cycle into the Old World on this unique VBT vacation to the heart of Central Europe.

We’ll follow Danube shores, crisscrossing the fabled river to pedal amidst undulating farmlands and traditional Hungarian and Slovakian villages, pausing to picnic along babbling streams, admire formal gardens, and ponder vestiges of ancient Rome. We’ll quickly see that tradition prevails here, cherished by big-hearted locals who demonstrate the secrets of their rich culture—mouth-watering strudel, palinka brandy, home-cooked meals and hospitality, bold horsemanship and more. What’s more, we’ll punctuate our thrilling exploration with stays at two of the Leading Small Hotels of the World.
