Berlin has undergone enormous change in the last decade and blossomed into a vibrant yet relaxed capital city, with so much to enjoy. We spend a full day here so you can take in some of the top attractions, such as the impressive Reichstag building, home to the German parliament; the famous Brandenburg Gate, Germany’s iconic symbol; the remains of the Berlin Wall, where you can discover its stories at the Checkpoint Charlie Museum; and the Potsdamer Platz, one of the busiest squares in Europe. Dinner is served back at our hotel later today, after which you can enjoy a relaxing evening or see the city lit up at night.
This morning we take the train to Prague. We arrive in the afternoon and check in to our hotel. Dinner is included at our hotel this evening.
There are few cities in Europe that match Prague, which boasts some 600 years of beautifully preserved architecture. The next two days are spent here so you can really make the most of your visit. Venture into the historic centre and you will find small plaques which point out key landmarks on a circular route of approximately 5 miles – it’s a great way to take yourself on a tour of the city and see some of the main buildings and monuments. There’s also Prague Castle, the largest ancient castle in Europe, the beautiful Spanish Synagogue, Wallenstein Gardens which offer free entrance and so much more.

This morning we travel by rail to Budapest. We arrive later in the day for a relaxing evening with dinner included at our hotel.
Today we have a full day in Budapest, one of the most beautiful cities in the world with an extensive area recognised as a world heritage site. You can explore both sides of Hungary’s capital which is divided by the meandering Danube – traditional Buda and the more cosmopolitan Pest. Most of the famous sites are concentrated around Castle Hill on the Buda side, in downtown Pest and along the riverside walkways. Highlights include the Royal Palace, Fishermen’s Bastion, the Parliament building, St Stephen’s Basilica, Heroes’ Square, Chain Bridge, and many more.
This morning we take the train to Vienna and arrive around lunchtime. The remainder of the day is free for you to relax, or you can explore this beautiful city to get your bearings for tomorrow. Dinner is served in our hotel later today.
Spend a full day experiencing the delights of Vienna, capital of Austria and birthplace of classical music. More than 150 grand palaces, over 27 baroque castles, impressive squares and striking monuments are just some of the key features of this magnificent city, whose historic centre is also a world heritage site. For the best views you can climb to the top of the cathedral, take a ride on the giant ferris wheel, or you may choose to see the sights from a horse-drawn carriage. There are also hundreds of museums and attractions to visit, as well as lots of green space.
We set off this morning and travel by high-speed rail to Brussels, where we join Eurostar for the return to London.
