2021 Season

Central Europe


tour: 6070 15 Day Tour from Frankfurt to Frankfurt
Learn about Central Europe’s rich history and see its historical sites as you travel through the heart of Germany, Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Austria and the Czech Republic.

One of the highlights of this Central Europe tour is a visit to Jasna Góra, the monastery in near Czestochowa, an important pilgrimage spot. Its Black Madonna, a painting of the Virgin Mary, is a symbol of the country and venerated as the "Queen of Poland." While in Poland, you'll also stop in Auschwitz to visit what is left of the concentration camp, a chilling reminder of the Holocaust.

Sightseeing with a Local Guide—a local expert who knows the history, culture, and secrets of the city—is included in Berlin, Warsaw, Kraków, Budapest, Vienna, and Prague. Sights you’ll see during your city tours include Berlin’s Brandenburg Gate, dating to 1791; Budapest’s Heroes' Square, representing 1,000 years of Hungarian history, Bratislava’s old town center; Prague’s Charles Bridge, dating to 1357 and one of Europe’s oldest stone bridges, and the Astronomical Clock, built in 1410; and the Imperial city center of Vienna, the city of the Hapsburgs. . In Kraków, Poland’s most beautiful city and cultural capital, see the charming Market Square, and Wawel Cathedral, which houses the tombs of Poland’s royalty.

All of this,—plus stops in Weimar Poznan, Nuremberg and more —are included on this fabulous, value-minded Central Europe tour.

When I am on tour, I enjoy sharing my experience and knowledge of culture, history, geography, art and gastronomy. I always enjoy the diversity of the people who decide to come and travel. It is impressive to see people from very different backgrounds, willing to learn about the new cities, countries and regions. And, of course, not only learning, but also enjoying each other's company, having fun together and forming new friendships which will often last for a lifetime. I am very glad that I chose to become a Tour Director.
