Join Us for Monday Night Travel

Are you ready for a virtual adventure? Join us live every Monday for our Monday Night Travel party! Together we'll travel to destinations across Europe and beyond with a Rick Steves' Europe guide leading the way — and enjoy a Zoom happy hour with our merry band of travelers. Each week you'll learn about art, history, culture, food, and more, plus you'll have a chance to ask questions during a live Q&A. (Rick occasionally hosts events when he's not traveling.)

You do not need a Zoom account to participate but you must register below for each event. After registering, you'll receive a confirmation email from Zoom with a link to join the event. Registration doesn't guarantee admission. These events fill up quickly, so your best bet is to join us on time (or even a bit early). By registering for an event, you're agreeing to the Rick Steves' Europe Terms of Service and Privacy Policy.

We'll be on summer vacation for the month of August and back on September 12 with a full slate of fun new events. Please join us!


September 12: Cruising Burgundy and Hiking the Alps with Rick Steves

5:30 p.m. PT / 8:30 p.m. ET | REGISTER
7:00 p.m. PT / 10:00 p.m. ET | REGISTER

Monday Night Travel is back from summer vacation — and so is Rick! Just home from two amazing weeks of travel, he's excited to bring us along on all his adventures. First, it's France, where we'll glide down the Saône River, luxuriating on a gourmet barge tour through the heart of Burgundy. Then, a thrilling alpine dream comes true as Rick laces together historic mountain hotels with some of Switzerland's greatest hikes before gingerly inching a mile across a cliff on a via ferrata (iron cableway), high above the Lauterbrunnen Valley. Ready to go? Pour yourself a glass of your favorite French wine, lace up your hiking boots, and get ready — it's Season 3 of MNT!

September 19: France’s Alsace with Steve Smith

5:30 p.m. PT / 8:30 p.m. ET | REGISTER
7:00 p.m. PT / 10:00 p.m. ET | REGISTER

The province of Alsace stands like a flower-child referee between Germany and France. This week, MNT favorite Steve Smith returns to take us on a drive up the Alsace's Route du Vin for miles of vineyards, half-timbered villages, and feudal fortresses. We then head to Verdun to walk the trenches of World War I before visiting Reims Cathedral to marvel at Gothic splendor and Chagall's stained glass. Our final stop is Epernay, the effervescent birthplace of champagne. So, pour yourself some bubbly and raise your glass to a great Alsatian adventure!

Watch (and Play Bingo!) with Rick Steves — Vienna and the Danube

This event was recorded on July 25, 2022.

Rick's back on MNT this week — and he's ready to turn his TV episode "Vienna and the Danube" into a party with a little help from Rick Steves Bingo. Be sure to catch all the classic Rick-isms — from "evocative" and "convivial" to dorky jokes and thinly veiled political comments — as together, we tiptoe through Schönbrunn Palace, relax in a hillside wine garden, catch a little Klimt at a world-class opera house, and tour the Danube countryside, with its striking Melk Abbey. All along the way, Rick will share Vienna updates from his 2022 visit. So, print out your bingo cards (or get ready for a paperless game), and pour your favorite beer from the old Habsburg Empire — Rick's choice is Pilsner Urquell — to make it a lively drinking game!
