Why You'll Love This Tour

Overview

The Czech Republic, Germany & Austria

It’s easy to compact a lot of discovery into one week in a region where a slender border separates the colorful cultures of three very distinctive lands. Ancient castles and an incredible diversity of landscapes dot our route as we experience the Czech Republic, Germany, and Austria by bicycle and train, join local guides on walking tours, and embark on a memorable Danube cruise. We’ll also touch local culture up close as we visit a home, break bread at a family-owned tavern, and more. Join us in 2016, and discover why this was our most popular vacation last year.
