After your included breakfast, we'll be starting our first full day with a church that has seen the coronations of many kings, Matthias Church. Nearby is the Fisherman's Bastion, a whitewashed terrace with panoramic views of the surrounding area. From there we'll travel to the Inner City of Budapest, or Old Buda, Gellert Hill, and Parliament. The day will be finished off at Heroes Square with the Millennium Monument.

This morning, breakfast is included in Budapest before we'll travel over to Bratislava.

Tonight, dinner will be included, featuring the local splendor of food and wine of the Grinzing region.

 

Day 5: Vienna

 

This morning after your included breakfast, we'll be guided through the city by a local resident to first visit the Schoenbrunn Palace, then continue on to make our way to the center of the city. Everywhere we look will be something scenic and photo-worthy. In the evening we'll be enjoying a concert of classical music featuring pieces from Central Europe greats - Strauss and Mozart.

 

Day 6: Vienna - Cesky Krumlov, Czech Republic - Prague

 

After breakfast, we'll be departing Vienna to make our way into the Czech Republic. Cesky Krumlov, our first stop, will bring us back in time to the days of fairy tales, especially the 13th century Cesky Krumlov Castle. We'll have some free time to wander the city and forget what the year is before getting back on the coach to make the rest of our way to Prague. Tonight, dinner will be included.

We'll have our included breakfast and then start out on our tour of the city. Hradcany Castle and St. Vitus Cathredal are on the list for the day, after which we'll walk down Golden Lane and see Charles Bridge. This afternoon is a free afternoon for us to explore whatever our hearts desire. Maybe a museum or two? 

 

Day 8: Prague - Oberammergau, Germany

 

Breakfast in Prague, and then we set out again to the Czech countryside. With a quick stopover in Bavaria, we'll continue on to Oberammergau. Once we've arrived there, dinner will also be included.

 

Day 9: Oberammergau - Passion Play

 

The big day! The 2020 Oberammergau Passion Play!

During the Thirty Years War (1618-1648), the small town of Oberammergau, Germany, suffered deaths due to war and the bubonic plague, just like many Central European cities and villages. The people of the town in 1633, sick of the continued death, vowed to God that if they were spared from the plague from then on, they would perform a play every ten years. 

After the vow, the death rate slowly decreased until there was only 1 death in July of 1633. So the entire town kept their part of the bargain and performed the first play in 1634, after which they were completely spared from the plague then on. 

Since then, the town comes together every ten years to perform The Passion for increasingly large crowds. It takes over 2000 participants from the town to be put on, all of whom are residents of Oberammergau. 

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be included today.

 

Day 10: Oberammergau Region - Tour Ends

 

Today we'll be having our included breakfast before setting off for home.
