Vienna

The pomp and grandeur of Europe are at its finest in Vienna, the capital famous as much for its long history of classical music and traditional Austrian desserts as it is for bold, modern architecture and international cuisine. Music lovers flock to Vienna for the chance to hear the Strauss Waltzes, aspiring architects come for the work of Hundertwasser and Alfred Loos and everyone comes to stroll through the monuments and parks of Ringstrasse. In Vienna you’ll find eclectic wine bars and elegant bistros, cozy cafes and trendy bars, imperial ambience and casual chic. It is a city of contrasts that has grown and evolved to remain the jewel of Central Europe.

Budapest

Flowing through the heart of the city, the Blue Danube divides the Hungarian city of Budapest into two unique sides, Buda and Pest. The hills of Buda, crowned by the Budapest Castle and the Fishermen’s Bastion, adorn the right bank of the city and provide magnificent views of Parliament, the Margaret Island and the bridges that span the Danube. The streets of Pest are the heartbeat of Hungary’s commercial side and hold some of the city’s finest attractions, such as the National Art Museum, Liszt Square, the Opera House and the Market Hall. No matter which side of the river your visit leads to, Budapest is charged with the inventiveness and spice for which Hungarians are famous. It won’t be long before you find yourself saying, “Perhaps in another life, I too am Hungarian.”

Prague

A living museum rich with the history and enchantment of its 1000 years, Prague is a true fairy-tale city. Meander through the crooked lanes to discover the sensory delights that await you here: symphonic music from some of the world’s greatest composers, magnificent architecture from virtually every style and period, golden pilsner brewed on seemingly every corner, cobblestone streets undulating under foot and the succulent fare of Bohemian cuisine. Prague lives up to its moniker as The Golden City, seducing visitors with the unique charms of The Lesser Town, the abundant attractions of Old Town and the romance of the Charles Bridge. And with a wide array of spectacular locales and international flavor, Prague is perfect for just about anyone.

Salzburg

Nestled in the northern range of the Alps on the banks of the Salzach River, Salzburg is one of the most well preserved cities in Europe. It is a mini metropolis with a gigantic reputation. Salzburg is the birthplace of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, the setting for the Sound of Music and home to some of the finest baroque architecture. The landscape of the city is dominated by the Fortress Hohensalzburg with the Gardens of Mirabell Palace and the Salzburg Cathedral carved out on either side of the river. Stroll down the historic Getreidegasse with the sounds of live classical music soothing you as you wind your way in and out of the old town boutiques. Sip your coffee at Café Tomaselli, the oldest coffeehouse in Austria. Or dine in one of Salzburg’s many gourmet eateries. No matter how you spend your day, Salzburg rewards every visitor with easy charm and grace.
