On this splendid Central Europe tour, you'll discover the former Habsburg Empire. Your tour starts and ends in Munich. Along the way, you'll overnight in some of Central Europe's most exciting cities: Prague, Vienna, Budapest, and Salzburg. In Prague, Vienna, and Budapest, join your Local Guides-experts who will share with you the history and secrets in their cities-for sightseeing of the must-see sights. Among the sights you will see in Prague are Charles Bridge, dating to 1357 and one of the oldest stone bridges in Europe, and the Astronomical Clock, built in 1410 with a sinister medieval figure of death who emerges to pull the bell cord. In Budapest, see the Parliament building, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and considered one of the world's most beautiful parliament buildings, and Fishermen's Bastion, which overlooks the city. In Vienna, view the Hofburg, the palatial complex and the political focal point for the Hapsburgs. You'll have time on your own in Vienna to sit in a cafe with a piece of scrumptious Sachertorte while listening to a legendary waltz, or explore the inside of St. Stephen's Cathedral with its Romanesque and gothic architecture. In Nuremberg, wander through the charming, pedestrian Old Town with its impressive medieval ramparts. In Salzburg, you may want to walk through the quaint streets of the town center and maybe visit Mozart's house, or just browse through the typical shops to taste some of the delicious chocolates. Vibrant cities and historic sights-along with some beautiful scenery of the Alps and the Danube River-make this a comprehensive tour through Central Europe for value-minded travelers.
