Austria, Czech Republic & Hungary Escorted Tours
Salzburg, Austria

Welcome to Austria, Czech Republic & Hungary

A long-ago world of fairy-tale castles, medieval cities and vineyard-covered hills awaits in the heart of "Old World Europe", as you discover a parade of opulent palaces, monasteries, and cathedrals that the Hasburg Empire left behind. The Imperial Apartments at the Hofburg and Schonbrunn Palace in Vienna... Prague Castle in the Czech capital... and Krumlov Castle, dating back to 1240 in the Bohemian town of Český Krumlov offer poignant perspectives of historical days gone by.

Prague, Czech Republic

Prague... the "city of a hundred spires"...

Although today it's the capital of the modern and independent Czech Republic, Prague still retains much of its medieval character in its soaring cathedrals, like the magnificent Gothic Cathedral of St. Vitus… the historic architectural riches of Old Town, including the Powder Tower and the Astronomical Clock… … the Hradcany (Castle) district, home to the millennium-old Prague Castle complex… the famous 16th-century Charles Bridge over the Vltava River… poignant Jewish heritage sites including a centuries-old Jewish cemetery… and winding, cobblestoned, lantern-lit streets lined with cafés and restaurants serving up schnitzels, dumplings, strüdels, goulashes, and beloved Czech brews…

Budapest, Hungary

Two cities now rolled into one, sprawling across the Danube

Formerly the independent cities of Buda and Pest on opposite banks of the Danube until the 19th century, Hungary's capital – Budapest – is filled with architecture known for its grandeur and style… from the hilly Buda section, home to Castle Hill, Fisherman's Bastion, and Matthias Church… to the flatter Pest side of the river, encompassing patriotic Heroes' Square; the fashionable shopping street, Váci Utca; Hungary's magnificent Neo-Classical Parliament building along the river; tree-lined Andrássy Avenue, home to some of Europe's most elegant 19th-century mansions; the beautiful Hungarian State Opera House; the Hungarian Academy of Sciences; the city's famous baths, and much more.

Vienna, Austria

Vienna waits for you...

Once the heart of the Habsburgs' Austro-Hungarian empire that ruled much of Europe for centuries, Vienna has so much to offer that it's hard to know where to start! There are its magnificent boulevards, like the Ringstrasse… great museums (more than 100), including the Kunsthistorisches (Museum of Fine Arts)… Imperial wonders like Schönbrunn Palace, the Habsburgs' summer residence, and Hofburg Palace, another amazing Habsburg abode where the president of Austria lives today, and home to the Imperial Apartments of Empress Elisabeth ("Sisi")… medieval Vienna, including Neuer Markt, Ballgasse, Franziskanerplatz, Bäckerstrasse and Mozarthaus… the mosaic-roofed Stephansdom (St. Stephen's Cathedral)… the old Jewish Quarter and 19th-century Stadttempel, the city's only synagogue to survive WWII… and the historic Vienna Prater, one of the world's oldest amusement parks…

Tauck Exclusive – Imperial Evening at Palais Pallavicini

Our exclusive gala Imperial Evening at the private Palais Pallavicini in Vienna

Built in 1784, the sumptuous Palais Pallavicini is a grand private palace in the heart of Vienna whose magnificent Baroque touches transport you to another time. On many of our Danube river cruises, join us at the Palais for a gala evening featuring a reception, dinner and classical performances sure to sweep you off your feet... and let you experience firsthand how Europe's cultured classes lived and were entertained centuries ago. And film fans will note that the Palais and its elegant facade served as rogue Harry Lime's postwar Vienna apartment in the Cold War classic "The Third Man."

The Ritz-Carlton, Budapest

A blend of tradition and modern touches in the heart of Budapest

A short walk from St. Stephen's Basilica, Erzsébet Square and the River Danube, The Ritz-Carlton, Budapest places guests in the center of one of Europe's most beautiful cities. Set within a 19th century heritage building, the hotel presents modern luxury with a tint of tradition. Five-star amenities include Hungarian-inspired cuisine at Deák St. Kitchen, residential-style accommodations and a spa that draws from European expertise.
