Cosmos Bohemian Rhapsody (6090)

13 days from Munich to Munich 
Discover the magic of Prague, Budapest, and Vienna at a leisurely pace on this Central Europe tour that also includes time in Nuremberg and Bratislava, and overnights in Munich and Salzburg. Along the way, enjoy beautiful scenery both from land and from the water on the included cruise on the Danube River in the Wachau region. Relax as you glide by spectacular vineyards and charming villages.

Your three nights in Vienna and sightseeing include a stroll in Heroes’Square to view the Hofburg, the palatial complex at the heart of Vienna. In your spare time, you may want to visit one of the many palaces and museums, take an optional excursion, or just relax at a coffee house enjoying some Sacher cake.
