Trips by Destination

Prague to Vienna


From the Old World charm of Prague and the Czech Republic, our journey will include the Unesco World Heritage site of Cesky-Krumlov and idyllic countryside of southern Bohemia; in Austria, we’ll follow the Danube River, where you can choose between gentle bike paths or venture into the nearby moderate hills where vineyards tempt. Our trip finishes in Vienna, one of Europe’s most important artistic centers.


Hotel Nautilus, Tabor

This 4-star boutique hotel was renovated from a former townhouse and is located on the central plaza of Tabor, with comfortable rooms and an exquisite restaurant. Frommers notes, "Easily the most sytlish and comfortable in town."


Hotel Konvince, Cesky-Krumlov

This hotel is the highest-rated in CK, this charming family owned hotel is in a quiet location in the historical center of town. Frommers notes, "As you gaze at the river and the castle on the opposite bank, you'll wonder why anyone would choose to stay elsewhere."

Hotel Schachner, Maria Taferl

This 4-star hotel is located in the village of Maria Taferl, with views of the Danube. The restaurant here is excellent and there is a pool and spa facilities.

Hotel Raffelsburger, Weissenkirchen

Built in 1574, this property was renovated by the Anton family and now is a treasure of antiques. With just 15 rooms, it is intimate and boasts a location overlooking the Danube, and close to the quaint villages of Durnstein and others.
