The Bohemian

9 days from US$2,205

Walk in the footsteps of Prague’s Bohemian Kings and fall under the spell of Český Krumlov. Explore the legacy of the Habsburgs in Vienna and Budapest.

These three capitals, lush with magnificent cathedrals, imperial palaces and majestic castles, stand at the geographical heart of mainland Europe. Their history and culture are majestically intertwined by the powerful Habsburg dynasty.

Surprisingly, the vineyards, gabled shop fronts and opulent palaces play second fiddle to the scenery. Experience the magical, unrivalled beauty of the Alpine world, on-board the enthralling Glacier Express.

Travel Tips

When to go: For a warmer climate and clearer skies head to Austria between June and September. Or wrap up warm and head to this stunning country November-December, when you’ll be able to capture snow-topped mountains and the festive spirit at the country’s Christmas markets.
