Destination Covered:Germany, Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Austria and the Czech Republic
Central Europe’s rich history and see its historical sights 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 drive along Germany’s Romantic Road with its charming villages, cobblestone streets, walled cities, and scenic countryside. You’ll stop in two of them: Nördlingen, a walled medieval town that sits in the valley created by a meteor, and picturesque Rothenburg, a walled town that has retained its medieval character. Another highlight is a visit to Jasna Góra, the monastery 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.
All of this and more—plus stops in Weimar and Poznan—are included on this fabulous, value-minded Central Europe tour.
