Day 1 to 3: Berlin

Accommodation:
A turn-of-the-century residence2 Nights | Bed & Breakfast

The hotel is a tremendous value in the heart of Berlin. Its location on a quiet, tree-lined street just off the Kurfürstendamm couldn't be better. The five-story building, built around 1900 as a private residence, has a nostalgic, old-fashioned look with ornate designs on its cream-coloured facade, tall windows, romantic balconies edged with flowerboxes, and a large tree shading the entrance. You step inside to a hallway with a black-and-white marble floor, mirrored walls, and a vaulted ceiling. The rooms are spacious and nicely furnished in a traditional style with dark wooden furniture, pastel-coloured fabrics and lace curtains. Many of the rooms face onto the quiet courtyard.

Attractions:

Hluboká
The romantic castle near Ceske Budejovice is probably the most visited monument in South Bohemia. Originally a royal castle from the 13th century, the residence of the Princes of Schwarzenberg was often rebuilt – the last time from 1845 to 1871, when it received its magnificent neo-gothic face. The lock chambers and richly decorated rooms can be visited, but also the armory or the adjacent South Bohemian Aleš Mikoláš-gallery (Alšova Bohemian Gallery). A stroll through the large park in English style is also very nice.

Accommodation:
A palace overlooking the Danube2 Nights | Bed & Breakfast

The palace in Dürnstein was built by a princess in 1632. She chose the location well: a high cliff overlooking the beautiful Danube as it winds through vineyards on the way to Vienna. Today the palace is a luxury Relaix-et-Chateaux hotel considered one of the best properties in Austria. Read more→

Meals are served on the popular garden terrace above the river. The individually decorated rooms are complemented by elegant lounges with period furniture. Among many other activities, guests can take a dip in the indoor or outdoor swimming pools, enjoy a sauna or steam bath, walk up to the medieval castle ruins above the picturesque town of Dürnstein, stroll along the river or among the vineyards, or take day trips to nearby Vienna.

Wien

Attractions:

Vienna
The city on the Danube, which is situated at the crossroads of the transport routes from the Baltic to the Adriatic and from southern Germany to the Great Hungarian Plain, is much more than the capital of Austria. For many centuries Vienna was the center of a powerful empire covering much of southeast Europe, the seat of the powerful Habsburg Monarchy which ruled from the Middle Ages to the fall of the Austro-Hungarian Empire in 1918.The city's illustrious past is reflected in its stately palaces and other majestic landmarks along the ring surrounding the old town, such as the Staatsoper (state opera) and the ducal Hofburg. Today Vienna, former capital of the former multinational state, is a modern, cosmopolitan city with a touch of nostalgia for the glorious days of old. It is still the mecca of classical music with the world's largest music conservatory, the most famous concert halls with countless music events each year.


Day 10: Wien

Vienna (OPTIONAL)Tour of Old City

Guided Tour with Gerda
“You only see what you know”

After a walking tour with certified guide Gerda you will know Vienna in a way that could never be accomplished on your own. The Vienna native combines her love for the town with her knowledge as a state-certified tourist guide (Austria Guide) ever since her return home from a long stay abroad (South Africa, Germany, Italy).  Read more→

She will take you on an informative, entertaining 1 1/2-hour walk through the history-laden streets of the Old Town, the former centre of the Habsburg dynasty and the powerful capital of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Key stops include the Hofburg Imperial Palace, the Kohlmarkt (Vienna's elegant shopping avenue), the Spanish Riding School and, of course, St. Stephan's Cathedral in the heart of the city. The tour can be modified to accommodate your special interests. 


Unless otherwise arranged, you will be picked up at your hotel at 10 a.m.

The property is situated in the middle of a picturesque park near the historical centre of Salzburg.
