3 Nights in Berlin

A vibrant cosmopolitan city that’s rich in history and contemporary culture, Berlin is constantly evolving. From the ruins of World War II to the Cold War division of the Berlin wall, Berlin has always managed to rebuild. Germany's largest city, this sprawling (by European standards) metropolis has excellent public transportation, from subways to an official rowboat ferry. You’ll find a little of everything here, from history to high gastronomy, art museums to palaces, and plenty lively bars. The nightlife here is world-class, but there’s more than enough to see during the day. Berlin is made up of distinctive neighborhoods, each with a different character. We recommend several ways of exploring the city, from a Cold War walking tour to a bike tour to see all the must-see sights in a simple and easy way. An exploration of the long and volatile history of Jewish culture in the city is eye-opening as Jewish life in Berlin has been meticulously documented. Many of the city’s art and culture museums offer unforgettable glimpses into history. Potsdam offers the perfect diversion for an afternoon, and Sanssouci Palace, with its well-tended gardens, is a beautiful reminder of the city’s impressive past. The past comes alive in Berlin, but the present is very much alive as well.

It is a well known fact that Berlin is the mecca and homeland for techno music. Even if you don't seek it out, it's closely tied to the city's history after reunification, and it's worth learning about. The techno scene dates back to the 90s, when the city was full of abandoned buildings, many without clear ownership. A tradition grew of hosting parties in these ruins, which often featured large halls with acoustics that worked best for the country's budding young techno scene. These unsafe parties have become more rare and an invitation tends to require knowing the right local, but these parties gave birth to the city's nightlife scene, which is one of the world's largest and most famous. Clubs are generally in former industrial spaces, and have events running from Thursday to Monday. Locals avoid the lines by arriving on a Saturday or Sunday morning. If you're not a fan of this poorly-lit, bass-happy world, Berlin has plenty to offer at the opposite extreme, with three major opera houses, and one of the world's best orchestras, the Berlin Philharmonic, housed in a building near Potsdamer Platz that was intended to showcase West Berlin's cultural life.

Potsdam Group Tour by Train

Potsdam Group Tour by Train

Included in your vacation package price.

Just a short train ride from Berlin, Potsdam is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that will impress you with its marvellous charm and grandeur. On this tour with an expert local guide you'll see everything Potsdam has to offer, starting with the stunning Sanssouci Palace, the favorite residence of Frederick the Great. Set amongst beautiful parkland scattered with temples, churches and grottoes, it is a sight to behold. From lovely gardens to amazing architecture, there is an amazing diversity of royal opulence in Potsdam, making it one of our favorite day trips from Berlin.


Activity Level : Moderate
Duration : 6 hours

A Museum Paradise

Suggestion to explore on your own

Berlin’s past as an imperial capital, and current status as a global cultural hotspot are made clear by its sheer variety of museums, which will spoil you for choice. If you have any interest in art and archaeology, you need to visit Museum Island, home to a UNESCO-listed museum complex that contains one of the world’s great art collections, stretching across seven museums. Next door, on the site of a failed assassination attempt against Hitler, the German History Museum covers German history from its first settlement to today, making it the best way to get an overview of German history, from kings to peasants.

The mile-long Berlin Wall Memorial explains the wall with plaques, art, museums, and a rebuilt section of the wall complete with a viewing platform (it is distant from the East Side Gallery, which has the wall's most famous murals). At the memorial you'll find excavations of buildings destroyed by the wall’s construction, giant murals, and a modern church built on the grounds of an older temple destroyed for the wall. This stretch featured more escape tunnels than any other area, and their routes are traced on the ground, next to plaques giving their history. The route ends near Mauerpark, a “Wall Park” that turns into one of the city’s most popular spots every Sunday, when crowds flock to its flea market, grassy lawns, and karaoke amphitheater.

Day 4

Day 4 - Traveling to Prague by Train

Sit back and relax as we whisk you from Berlin to Prague by train. You'll glide through the picturesque German countryside, and the journey moves riverside once you enter the Czech Republic. Regular train connections between the two cities means departure times are flexible. The journey takes about four and a half hours. Your hotel reception will be able to arrange a taxi for you, much more economically than a transfer service, so we haven’t included that in your package but can do should you wish. Your package includes second class tickets with seat reservations, upgrades to first are available but are much more expensive. For the chance to visit another city on your journey, choose our private transfer option. Your driver will pick you up in Berlin and deliver you to your centrally located Prague accommodation. Along the way however, you'll enjoy a stop in the beautiful and historic city of Dresden, about halfway between Prague and Berlin.

You may recognize the library's impressive halls from Hollywood blockbusters such as Casino Royale and From Hell. After exploring the meditative temple, you can enjoy a glass of craft beer in the Strahov Brewery, and classic Czech dishes. If you are not a fan of beer, you may enjoy a cup of coffee or tea at New World, a little town within Prague Castle, where time seems to stand still. Although it seems impossible, close to the most visited site in the Czech Republic, New World is a place that tourists haven't fully discovered yet. The brewery visit can also be swapped out.

Fine Czech Art, Indoors and Outside

Suggestion to explore on your own

Art lovers should visit the National Gallery's buildings. The newly renovated main building's permanent exhibition focuses on Czech fine artists. Around the corner you will find DOX Gallery, with a full program of exhibitions by contemporary artists. In the city center we recommend Mucha's Museum, dedicated to the most Art Nouveau artist, Alphonse Mucha. You can also visit the Kinsky Palace, with its collection of masterpieces from the renaissance to prsesent day. For tips on unusual monuments and street art, visit our blog.

Day 6

Day 6 - Your Second Full Day in Prague

World War II Group Tour

World War II Group Tour

Included in your vacation package price.

This is a tour of Prague’s darkest days: the terror of Nazi occupation, and the fight to rid this city of these invaders. Threatened with total obliteration, after the betrayal of the Munich Agreement, Czech people took matters into their own hands. Revisit the battleground of the Old Town, and witness the power of Nazi propaganda. You'll explore the last hideout of Prague's resistance, the old town's underground tunnels, and see previously hidden documentary evidence of their courageous actions. You'll meet the few brave men flown in from Britain to assassinate the Nazi "Butcher of Prague," Reinhard Heydrich. The governor of the former Czechoslovakia, Heydrich was the Holocaust's main architect, and led both the Gestapo and the SS' intelligence service.


Activity Level : Light
Duration : 2 hours

For Art and History Lovers

Suggestion to explore on your own

Prague is so full of fascinating sights that it's easy to miss some of the best. For a little bit of peace and quiet, you should visit the Convent of Saint Anges of Bohemia, which was founded in the 13th century. Here you'll find an exhibition on medieval art, and can find tranquility in the gardens, which are decorated by two dozen sculptures from contemporary Czech artists. This Convent is open from Tuesday to Sunday. Our second tip is the Clementinum, a large complex of chapels and other buildings that collectively host the National Library. You can join one of the daily guided tours, or take in a concert in the Mirror Chapel.

Day 7

Day 7 - Traveling to Vienna by Train

Today, you'll have a lovely train ride from Prague to Vienna. As there are a number of trains running throughout the day, you can depart either in the morning or the afternoon for the roughly 5-hour trip. We'll arrange standard class tickets based on the train time of your choice and have a driver transfer you from your accommodation to the Prague train station. We can also arrange first class tickets for an additional fee though in our experience there is little difference, other than proximity to the dining car if available, between the two types of carriage. If you'd like a bit more comfort and flexibility, a private transfer can be arranged for an additional fee. This will save a bit of travel time and offers door-to-door service. You would also have the option of stopping for lunch and to taste the local wines in Mikulov, in the heart of the Moravian wine region close to the border with Austria.

Vienna is a timeless city of high culture, grand cafes, breathtaking architecture and more, all set on the banks of the majestic Danube River. The moment you set foot in the city you’ll see why Vienna’s center is on the UNESCO World Heritage list. Often regarded as the world capital of music, Vienna is the place where Beethoven and Mozart made history. Even today a visit to the opera or a classical music performance at one of the city’s sublime concert halls is an unforgettable experience. Stephansplatz, Vienna's main square, is dominated by the impressive eponymous gothic St. Stephen's Cathedral. Inside you’ll find a rich collection of artistic treasures, and the view from the tower is well worth the climb, offering amazing views over the city. But the cathedral is only one of the most visible attractions in Vienna. You won’t want to miss the magnificent Schonbrunn Palace and the imperial Hofburg Palace. Explore the city on foot, in a car, or by bike: the choice is yours. If you’d like to go farther afield you can even take a river cruise to nearby Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia, or a bike trip to local wineries. But you don’t have to leave Vienna to have a wonderful time. Simply strolling through the pedestrian zones in the city center and stopping for a coffee and a slice of cake make for a truly enjoyable vacation.

Duration : 2 hours 30 minutes

Vienna's Luxury Heritage

Suggestion to explore on your own

Two of Vienna’s most beloved groups are the Spanish Riding School and the Vienna Boy’s Choir. We highly recommend you take in both if your dates allow. The Spanish Riding School is the last remaining preserver of classic equestrian skills practices in their original form. The precision movements of the horses and their riders is truly dazzling. And it all takes place in a beautiful riding hall designed in the 18th century. Catch a performance or attend the morning exercises. The Vienna Boy’s Choir, one of the most renowned choirs in the world, is uniquely Viennese. If you’re in the city at the right time, you might be lucky enough to experience the brilliance of these talented young singers, specializing in Mozart, Bruckner, and other classic composers with ties to Vienna.

Schönbrunn Palace Dinner and Concert

Dinner and Concert in the Schönbrunn Palace

Included in your vacation package price.

If you were a 17th or 18th century nobleman without an orangery, you had ample reason for embarrassment. These attractive conservatories were used to grow and showcase exotic tropical plants, from citrus to ornamental plants. Often painted bright colors, these were generally the centerpiece of a palace's garden. Running for over 600 feet and more than 30 feet wide, Schönbrunn's Orangery is the second largest in the world, only exceeded by Versailles'. Embrace Vienna's high culture here with a three-course dinner and some of Mozart and Strauss' most beloved pieces, performed by the Schönbrunn Palace Orchestra and the Schönbrunn Palace Ensemble. This is a great way to enjoy one of the city's most historic concert halls, but if you're looking for the best of the city's dining or classical music scene, we recommend going elsewhere, as this event mostly draws crowds of tourists.

Add in the alpine backdrop and you’ve got a city that makes for an unforgettable vacation. The imposing Salzburg Cathedral and Hohensalzburg Fortress dominate the skyline, while in the center you’ll find plenty of grand cafes and fine restaurants.

Today the city is a vibrant destination for travelers looking for a mix of classic culture and modern flair. Strolling through Salzburg is one of the great pleasures of Europe. The local cuisine is hearty and there are more than enough restaurants, bars, and cafes to keep you busy. Beer lovers shouldn’t miss sampling a stein or two of delicious local brew at the Augustiner brewery.

History buffs will want to venture farther afield to visit Hitler’s Eagle’s Nest perched high in the German Alps in Berchtesgaden.

With its traditional beer halls, designer shops, trendy restaurants and international business, Munich is a mix of old and new, German and cosmopolitan. Largely rebuilt after World War II, the city still retains its old world charm, even in the midst of expansion and modernization. You’ve probably heard of the city’s world famous Oktobertfest, a once-in-a-lifetime party dedicated to that incredible Bavarian beer along with some of the local delicacies, including tasty schnitzel. But there’s much more to Munich than drinking, and on your holiday you’ll have the chance to discover the best this charming city has to offer. Don’t miss out on the beer halls and the breweries, but be sure to get off the beaten path to discover a Munich of your own. Much of the city’s past centers around World War II, and there are several ways you can explore this chapter of Munich’s history, including a day trip to the Dachau concentration camp and a special tour focusing on Hitler and the local activities of the Third Reich. Munich is also a center of industry and there is nowhere better to experience this than BMW World. Moving slightly farther afield, Neuschwanstein Castle makes the perfect day trip, perched high in the hills over a verdant valley. Munich’s variety means there’s more than enough to satisfy even the most diverse groups of travelers. Let your curiosity guide you as you explore this unique German city.

Sights to See on Your Own

Suggestion to explore on your own

Munich was the birthplace of the Nazi Party and the home of its headquarters, so there’s some dark history that can be delved into here. We suggest visiting beer halls that hosted the first small gatherings of the fanatics who one day would lead the Third Reich, and the places where Hitler made his first major speeches. You can then explore the official Nazi headquarters and the buildings that bear the scars of the Second World War, such as the former Führerbau (Leader's Building) or the former Gestapo (secret police) headquarters.

Munich's Jewish Heritage

Suggestion to explore on your own

Munich has Germany’s second largest Jewish community, after Berlin. Counterintuitively, many homeless Jews came to Munich after World War II, finding it a safer place with its American soldiers, than some lands further to the east, and many more arrived from the former Soviet Union after it broke up, followed by the current wave of well-educated Israelis. This colorful, cosmopolitan community is worth exploring, as is the community that preceded it and Nazism. We can recommend the city’s Jewish landmarks, and the restaurant home to the region's best kosher cuisine.

JayWay Travel is an outstanding agency that allows the traveler to decide how much or how little to have planned with extremely knowledgeable, responsive and dedicated personnel. We were incredibly appreciative and grateful for the excellent and punctual tour guides, excursions and transfers from city to city, and the ability to have our own English speaking local JayWay contact available by a loaner phone for any questions that might have arisen. This is top notch service; thank you JayWay Travel!
