Itinerary

Expand All
1 Arrive In Frankfurt, Germany
Check into your hotel. The rest of the day is free. Tonight, meet your Tour Director and fellow travellers.
2 Frankfurt - Weimar - Berlin
Our first stop today is in Weimar, one-time intellectual heart of Germany and host to such luminaries as Luther, Cranach, Bach, Liszt, Schiller, and, of course, Goethe himself. It was at one time rightly known as the "Athens of Germany." Continue through Thuringia and Saxony-Anhalt all the way to Germany's capital city, Berlin. (B)
3 Berlin
On this morning's included guided tour, learn how the city is no longer divided but every bit as fascinating. Once the city of contrasts with its West and East side separated into two different worlds by a wall, Berlin has developed into a harmonious blend of old and new. It has preserved the old buildings, such as the State Opera House and Brandenburg Gate; its neoclassic-style boulevards, such as the Kurfürstendamm and Unter den Linden; and it has created brand new buildings in the most daring, contemporary architectural styles. It is once again Germany's capital and one of Europe's most lively and interesting cities. (B)
4 Berlin - Poznan, Poland - Warsaw
Drive east to Poznan, one of Poland's oldest trading centres and admire its renaissance market square. Continue to Warsaw, capital of Poland. (B/D)
5 Warsaw
The included sightseeing tour is an excellent introduction to Warsaw, magnificently reconstructed after wartime destruction. Today, its wide avenues contrast strikingly with the narrow lanes of the old section. (B)
6 Warsaw - Jasna Gora - Auschwitz - Krakow
Two encounters with history on your southbound journey today. First, JASNA GÓRA near Czestochowa, the monastery that withstood the repeated onslaught of overwhelming Swedish forces during the religious wars of the 17th century. Since then, its Black Madonna is venerated as the "Queen of Poland" and has become the country's national symbol. In the afternoon, visit what is left of the AUSCHWITZ CONCENTRATION CAMP, a chilling reminder of the Holocaust. Evening arrival in Kraków. (B/D)
7 Krakow
This is, they say, Poland's most beautiful city. For almost 500 years it was the country's capital; today, it is without a doubt its cultural capital. Join the included morning sightseeing in ancient Kraków, for centuries the residence of Polish kings. See the Market Square, the Jewish Quarter, St. Mary's Church, and visit WAWEL CATHEDRAL. Free time later to explore this interesting town at your own pace and mingle with the locals. (B)
8 Krakow - Budapest, Hungary
Travel through three countries today. First, south to the Tatra Mountains of Poland, then through scenic Slovakia, and finally into Hungary. Your destination is Budapest, the most lively of Eastern European capitals. (B/D)
9 Budapest
Budapest is a treasure trove of architectural wonders, from Gothic to Baroque, Neoclassical and Art Nouveau, but also full of history, a food capital and surprisingly rich in thermal waters. Discover all of this and more during the guided city tour. (B)
10 Budapest - Vienna, Austria
Head for the Austrian border to Vienna in time to enjoy the afternoon and evening in this lively capital. Enjoy the included sightseeing tour with a Local Guide: the State Opera, Parliament, and the Town Hall. Stop for a stroll in Heroes' Square to view the Hofburg Palace. (B)
11 Vienna - Prague, Czech Republic
Morning at leisure or join an optional excursion to Schönbrunn Palace. This afternoon, cross the Czech border into Moravia, then through the rich farmlands of Bohemia to Prague. (B/D)
12 Prague
The wealth of gothic and baroque architecture perhaps inspired Dvorak and Smetana, both Prague composers. The included guided sightseeing features landmarks such as the Jewish Quarter, Charles Bridge, and the Old Town Square with the ASTRONOMICAL CLOCK. Your Tour Director may suggest an optional evening excursion with traditional Czech music and spectacular entertainment. (B)
13 Prague - Munich, Germany
Into the landscape of the Bohemian Forest before reaching the Czech-German border. Drive south, enjoying the Bavarian scenery, to Munich, Germany's "Secret Capital," where you will drive through the city and see the main highlights. (B)
14 Munich - Nordlingen - Rothenburg - Frankfurt Area
The highlight today is undoubtedly the ROMANTIC ROAD/ which runs north to south as far as the Alps. First, visit lovely medieval Nördlingen, built on a crater formed by a meteorite approximately 14.5 million years ago. Then onto Rothenburg with its ramparts and towers, cobblestone streets, and 16th-century houses, before heading towards the Frankfurt area. (B/D)
15 Frankfurt Area
Your holiday ends with breakfast this morning. (B)

“Central Europe - a fantastic holiday with Cosmos”
- VIC, Australia Dec 2018 View Photo

Had a fantastic holiday with Cosmos. Experiencing the lights and markets of Central Europe, hotels, tour director, bus driver, other travellers were all first class. Would highly recommend this journey. Georgie Walpole once again arranged the booking for us, thank you. Definitely will use Global Journeys again.

“Central Europe in 15 days”
- WA, Australia Sep 2018 3 Helpful Votes View Photo

Cosmos ensured we had a fantastic trip and saw the main attractions in every city. There was plenty of time to please ourselves and to extend the experience with hotels well placed in terms of the center of town. Hotels were very good, even better than our previous tours. Our group were punctual and all got to know each other by the end of the trip. We would recommend this trip to everyone who wants to see the highlights of Central Europe and only has two weeks available to do it. Poland was amazing...read more

“Cosmos Central Europe ”
- NSW, Australia Aug 2018 1 Helpful Vote View Photo

We thoroughly enjoyed our bus tour to Central Europe with Cosmos. We have travelled with Cosmos many times now and always find them good value. We get to see the most interesting and popular tourist attractions in a very organised way. Accommodation was of a high standard although not always in the centre of the city. This meant on occasions we made our own way on public transport which we quite enjoy. Our tour guide Sandra was very knowledgeable, likeable and totally organised. The bus driver...read more

“Great trip through Central Europe”
- New Zealand Jul 2018 1 Helpful Vote

Great guide and a great trip to get the vibe of all the big cities with support. The salt mine trip and the Auschwitz tour were eye opening. The guide was exceptional in solving issues with health and problems in the group. The boat trip on the Danube was an optional trip that was perfectly arranged and a beautiful highlight. The friendship within the group is a lifelong opportunity of cohesion. The accommodations we stayed in were of great and good allocation. The shared meals were fun together...read more
