Also enjoy the sights, sounds, and tastes of Vienna—maybe sit in a café 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. Even more fabulous architecture awaits you in Budapest, a city built along the blue Danube. Breakfast is included daily, and you’ll have plenty of opportunities to sample the local cuisine in each city. Sample the sauerkraut in Munich, savor Apfelstrudel in Salzburg, and enjoy the plum dumplings and Pilsner in Prague. You’ll also enjoy the enchanting natural scenery, including the Alps and Danube River Valley—amazing features of a marvelous vacation.
