We will spend time in these cities:
Budapest - Hungary’s historic capital is a cosmopolitan city with stunning architecture, 9 beautiful bridges spanning the Danube River and lively walking streets.
Vienna - of Europe’s most elegant capital cities. The grandeur of the Austro-Hungarian Empire has been carefully preserved in the art and architecture.
Salzburg - Birthplace of the boy wonder – Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart as well as “Sound of Music” fame.
Munich – Bavaria’s capital has a fascinating history, small town charm and a beautifully restored Old Town.
Prague – The ancient capital of Bohemia has soaring cathedrals, lavish palaces and festive city squares.
Oberammergau - highlight of our tour is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The residents of this quaint Bavarian village have been performing this emotional play every 10 years since 1647 to honour a solemn pledge to “The Almighty”. As the Black Death (bubonic plague) swept across Europe, some of the villagers survived and made a vow to re-enact the agony of Christ’s crucifixion in thanks for being spared. There is a cast of 600 and a chorus of 100. The beautiful open stage is framed by magnificent alpine scenery. The play is in German but there are ongoing translations. We have the best available seating for the play.
*** Those joining any of our tours to Europe must be able to walk fairly long distances and climb stairs easily.
