Germany, Czech Republic, Austria and Hungary are at your disposal with this customizable vacation package. Begin in Munich (famous for its beautiful architecture, fine culture, and the annual Oktoberfest beer celebration) and after that, continue to Prague (known for its Old Town Square, and the medieval Astronomical Clock), up next, Vienna (the city of waltzes, classical music and leading cultural centers) and finally, Budapest (well-known worldwide for its incredible thermal springs, classical music, art gothic and noveau buildings alongside the Danube River). Connect each destination with train rides. This is a flexible vacation package. Select your number of nights in each city, desired hotel and activities.
Germany's landscape is straight from the Fairy tales: castles, deep dark forests and mythical rivers. The German landscapes are extraordinarily diverse, with graceful big-city appeal, small picture-postcard towns, pagan-inspired harvest festivals, a wealth of art and culture, and the perennial pleasures of huge tracts of forest, delightful castles and fine wine and beer. From Charlemagne and the Holy Roman Empire to the rise and fall of the Berlin Wall, no other nation has molded Europe the way Germany has - for better or worse.
The Czech Republic is perhaps best-known for its beautiful capital, Prague, although it is known for much more, such as its numerous castles and châteaux (over 1,200 of them!). It is also well-known for having some of the most delicious food and drink in Europe, in particular its wines and famed Pilsner-style beer. The Czech Republic has and had a very long Jewish tradition, which is triumphantly on display after the horrors and loss of World War II in such places as the Great Synagogue in Plzen, the third-largest in the world. Finally, the Czech Republic is well-known for its museums, educating visitors on everything from history and art to folk arts and crafts and even life in the former Communist Czechoslovakia.
Austria is epitomized by green glacial valleys and snow-capped peaks - and the wooden picture postcard chalets. Nonetheless, visitors have much to explore from the stylish capital, Vienna, to the baroque splendor of Salzburg. Austria's mountain landscape is undoubtedly its biggest draw for tourists. Although a year-round destination, there is a definite seasonal split in visitors. Summer is best for exploring the countryside on the many mountain trails that snake through the Austrian Alps and the lowlands, while the ski season kicks off in December, attracting winter sports fans from all over the world.
Perhaps the first thing you think of when you think of Hungary is its delicious cuisine; after all, it is the country that gave us goulash and fisherman`s soup. It is also known the world over for its 1,000-year historical tradition which bred strong folk traditions. Hungary is also known for its spring and summer festivals, its thermal spas, stunning and varied architectural styles befitting `the crossroads of Europe`, and some of the most gorgeous scenery you will find on the continent. Be sure to visit the charming capital of Budapest, split by the Danube, and then travel further afield to Transdanubia and the Great Hungarian Plain.

Your Preferred Major Airport:
Big-city style and rural charm, Alpine character and Mediterranean verve, art treasures and the Oktoberfest, traditional customs and high technology, beer gardens and haute cuisine, operas and cool bars; these are all ingredients that makes Bavaria's state capital so endlessly fascinating, and so popular with visitors from all over the world. Sprawling Munich is one of Germany's major cultural centers, second only to Berlin in terms of museums and theaters. It's also one of Germany's most festive cities, and its location, at the foot of the Alps, is idyllic. Munich's self-imposed image is that of a fun-loving and festival-addicted city - typified by its Oktoberfest. Explore Marienplatz and the New Town Hall of Munich, Frauenkirche - Cathedral of Our Blessed Lady, Dachau Concentration Camp, The English Garden, Beer Halls, Viktualienmarkt, Residence Palace of Munich, Deutsches Museum, Museums Ensemble: Alte Pinakothek, Neue Pinakothek, Pinakothek der Moderne, Olympic Stadium of Munich, BMW Museum and much more.
Rows of steeples stacked on onion domes pierce the sky, earning Prague the name 'The City of a Thousand Spires'. Prague has stood the test of time: 1,000 years of art and architecture have collided with power politics and religious conflicts. New shops and restaurants have opened, expanding the city's culinary reach far beyond tradition. The arts and theater are thriving in the 'new' Prague. The arts of the new era possess a distinctive Czech flavor. All of this frenetic activity plays well against a stunning backdrop of towering churches and centuries-old bridges and alleyways. Explore Prague Castle, Charles Bridge, Old Town Square and the Astronomical Clock, Wenceslas Square, the Jewish Quarter and so much more!
City of music, cafes, waltzes, parks, pastries, and wine - that`s Vienna in a nutshell. Vienna doesn`t hurry, and, as you saunter through its stately streets, marveling at its Baroque palaces, neither should you. Explore churches filled with statues of golden saints and pink-cheeked cherubs, wander through treasure-packed museums, or while away an afternoon in one of those countless meccas of mocha (the inevitable cafés), you will feel lapped in lashings of rich, delicious, whipped cream - the beloved Schlagobers that garnishes most Viennese pastries. Explore The Hofburg Palace, Schonbrunn Palace, Staatsoper, Kunsthistorisches Museum, the MuseumsQuartier Complex, St. Stephan's Cathedral, the Belvedere Palace, The Ringstrasse, Parlament, The Prater and so much more!
Two cities in one! Buda on a hill, historical part of the city and Pest on a plain its shops and boulevards both separated by the Danube flowing between them and connected by magnificent bridges. Budapest looks its most beautiful at dawn, yet it is also spectacularly appealing at night. With a unique, youthful atmosphere, a world-class classical music scene as well as a pulsating night life and an exceptionally rich offering of natural thermal baths, Budapest is one of Europe`s most delightful and enjoyable cities. This is a vibrant city: it throbs with life morning, noon and night; a remarkable and wholly unpretentious place. Visit and explore the Buda Hill and the Castle District, Parliament, the Chain Bridge, Heroes' Square, St. Stephen's Basilica, the Opera House, Matthias Church, Fisherman's Bastion, Gellert Hill, the thermal baths and so much more.
