Magic Moments in Germany and Austria
|The forest trail turns a corner...suddenly revealing the "hidden" castle of Burg Eltz.|
Day-by-day itineraries can give you a general idea of what you'll get for your money, but they can't prepare you for how Germany and Austria will surprise you at every turn...and perform a little magic. Here are just a few "wow" moments from our Best of Germany, Austria & Switzerland and Berlin, Prague & Vienna tour alums...
"One of my special moments was being in Munich during the Corpus Christi procession and listening to the Gregorian chant and liturgical music echoing through the narrow streets as we walked around. It was a very special experience for me."
— Phyllis in Washougal, WA (Best of Germany, Austria & Switzerland)
"Taking a boat on the lake at Hallstatt was so peaceful and beautiful we didn't want it to end. The Black Forest Open Museum was terrific. The concentration camp visit was powerful."
— Susan in Wooster, OH (Best of Germany, Austria & Switzerland)
"The Jewish Museum in Berlin, the food selection at the Marche Moevenpick 'rest stop' in Austria, and the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna. I've seen antiquities before, but never to this extent or displayed so beautifully — a traveler's gem in my mind."
— Mary in Cincinnati, OH (Berlin, Prague & Vienna)
"Burg Eltz castle was the most pleasant surprise! It was not on my radar screen of places but was a really neat surprise and a great castle to visit."
— Linda in Coupeville, WA (Best of Germany, Austria & Switzerland)
"Of all my many 'Wow!' moments on this tour, the one that really stands out was exploring the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna. The surprising thing is that we should have been 'museum'd-out' by that time, yet instead it proved to be my favorite of all. A fitting climax and a tribute to the planning that went into the design of the itinerary."
— James in Concord, CA (Berlin, Prague & Vienna)
"Salzburg — perfect weather, a beautiful city, and Mozart music being played on every square and street corner."
— Cindy in Shoreline, WA (Best of Germany, Austria & Switzerland)
