Sustainable Central Europe

13 Days / 12 Nights

Berlin, Prague, Vienna, Budapest

Travel and LeisureFodorsUSA TodayNew York TimesNational GeographicWashington PostVogue

Travel can be enjoyable and a force for good. Choose our Sustainable Central Europe vacation package to see how four different countries are making strides in sustainability. You'll visit four historical capitals with carbon-free excursions and be provided with plentiful recommendations for services that support local businesses.

Be socially responsible, eat and shop in Berlin's cosmopolitan Kreuzberg. One of the poorest boroughs of Berlin has become a sprawling, dizzying multicultural neighborhood with street art, thrift shops, Turkish cuisine, and laid-back cafés. Show your awareness in Prague and give a chance to vegan versions of traditional Czech dishes and buy some upcycled goods in the city's design shops. Vienna, a pioneer in sustainable urban thinking and acting, comes next. Eco-friendly, organic, and vegan products are easy to find. Budapest is indeed an emerging city of this kind. The last decade saw a boom of zero-waste bulk shops, plant-based street foods, and organic clothes boutiques. Like mushrooms after rain, these enterprises grew and crowded the Jewish Quarter. Pack your hiking shoes because both Prague and Budapest have pleasant green areas in and around to explore. Your tours will be on foot, two wheels, or by train.

Components of this comprehensive package, transportation, tours, and accommodations leave the smallest possible carbon footprint. You will travel by train from city to city and on some of the excursions, too. You will join private and small group tours operated by like-minded providers.

In addition to the tours included we can arrange a number of excursions based on your own interests. All of our tours are custom, and this is just a sample meant to give an idea of what our trips are like, and the opportunities our destinations provide.

One of our team members in the region will be available to you leading up to and during your trip to answer any questions and arrange local services. You will receive access to your Guest Page, with its information on the best these destinations have to offer, including things to see and do, and other inside tips from restaurant recommendations to tipping advice. Upon arrival, we will provide you with a local cell phone that you can use to reach your local JayWay contact throughout your trip. In all of our destinations, we offer a variety of memorable 3-5 star accommodation options, including boutique hotels, charming B&Bs, and spacious apartments. With our first-hand experience, we can ensure they are all clean, comfortable, and centrally located, with local ambience.

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.

Berlin Highlights Bike Tour

Berlin Highlights Bike Tour

Included in your vacation package price.

Berlin on a bicycle: it's the perfect way to experience this historic and lively city. During this 3-hour bike tour you'll pedal at a leisurely pace, led by an experienced guide who will make Berlin come to life for you. Highlights include the Brandenburg Gate, Museum Island, Checkpoint Charlie, and of course, the Berlin Wall. You'll get a feel for the layout of the city and everything that makes it special.


Activity Level : Moderate
Duration : 3 hours

Cosmopolitan Kreuzberg

Suggestion to explore on your own

See Berlin in all its cosmopolitan glory yourself, by wandering Kreuzberg, perhaps its most famous district, among Germans. After the wall came down, this once-isolated part of West Berlin became a trendy area, rich in culture, food, and languages. There are many museums, from the free Topography of Terror (located atop the former SS headquarters) and Jewish Museum, but the district is best explored on a stroll. Follow the Landwehrkanal, a canal lined with popular footpaths and cafes on either side, and seek out the area's Turkish food, especially simit (circular bread rolls covered in sesame seeds), gözleme (flatbread), köfte (meatballs), and of course, some of the city's best döner kebab (Mustafa's Gemüse Kebab is the most famous spot, but isn't worth the line). You'll never go hungry here, but on Thursday evenings, head to Markthalle Neun for the popular Street Food Thursdays, or on Tuesdays and Fridays, seek out the Turkish Market along the canal, next to the Schönleinstraße subway station.

Cosmopolitan Kreuzberg

Day 3

Day 3 - Your Second Full Day in Berlin

Gardens and Palaces of Potsdam Bike Group Tour

Gardens and Palaces of Potsdam Bike Group Tour

Included in your vacation package price.

Potsdam is Berlin’s most popular day trip destination, and for good reason. It’s a veritable playground for biking, with many Prussian and Cold War sights tucked deep in parks and along quiet alleyways. This 6.5-hour tour includes a train ride and cruising on a bike. Along the way you'll see some of the most unique sights in Potsdam, a paradise of gardens and palaces. The tour starts by taking the train from the TV Tower shop to Potsdam, where bikes are waiting for you. At the end of the tour you will take the train back to the shop in Alexanderplatz.

We recommend to wear comfortable shoes and come prepared for an action-filled day!


Activity Level : Moderate
Duration : 6-7 hours

Shop for Sustainable Fashion

Suggestion to explore on your own

Interest in ethical, eco-friendly fashion is growing, and that's especially clear in Berlin, long a haven for those into sustainable fashion. Ecoalf, whose motto is "Because There Is No Planet B," only sells clothes made from recycled materials. Loveco has three concept stores in Berlin, selling vegan clothing, accessories, and decorations. The hip Kreuzberg district also features many designers and concept stores devoted to slow fashion.

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. We will arrange for a transfer to the Berlin train station as well as second class tickets with seat reservations. Regular train connections between the two cities means departure times are flexible. The journey lasts about 5 hours and first class tickets can be arranged for an additional fee. 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.

3 Nights in Prague

“The Golden City,” “The City of 100 Spires,” “The Mother of Cities,” Prague has no shortage of nicknames paying homage to its charm and beauty. Prague’s winding cobblestone streets, gorgeous architecture and atmospheric bridges are fabled. Get up early and stroll across the statue-lined Charles Bridge. Soak it from the magnificent Old Town Square with its 600-year old astronomical clock. From exploring history and modern culture on foot, to traveling farther afield to take in the picturesque countryside and fairytale villages, you’ll have an itinerary full of adventure and relaxation. Besides the city’s history, evident on every street, especially in the beautifully preserved former Jewish Quarter, you can delve into the city’s gastronomy. You can literally dive into some of Europe’s best beers by visiting a beer spa, or explore its beloved breweries with walking tours, or enjoy a dinner cruise. Day-trip destinations include scenic castles, the perfect spa town, and Kutna Hora with its “bone church” and gothic cathedral. Prague is a city of history that comes to life for every visitor, no matter their interests.

Day 4 - Arrival in Prague

When you arrive at Prague's train station, we will have a driver there to meet you and take you to your accommodation.

Our representative will then meet with you to answer any questions you have and to get you settled for the rest of your trip.

Get Lost Amid Medieval Streets

Suggestion to explore on your own

On your first night in Prague we recommend strolling around the center's side streets. It's easy to get lost there, but the river and signage make it easy to find your way home. With so many buildings lit up, we think this romantic walk will help you fall in love with Prague right away. If you arrive before sunset, visit the House of the Black Madonna - the home of a small Cubism museum, and the only surviving Cubist café in the world – the Grand Café Orient (where even the věneček cream puffs are squares instead of donut-shaped). If you are thirsty after a long journey, grab a beer at Mlejnice, a restaurant famous for its cozy and stylish atmosphere and tasty cuisine.

Get Lost Amid Medieval Streets

Day 5

Day 5 - Your First Full Day in Prague

Prague Private Walking Tour

Prague Private Walking Tour

Included in your vacation package price.

This three-hour walking tour of the Golden City is the ideal way to get to know the beautiful historic center of Prague. You will walk the Royal Route, originally used for the king's coronation procession. The walk takes you through the center of Old Town, where you'll see all of the most famous sights, and also learn about the fascinating history that has made Prague a unique destination throughout the ages. Crossing Charles Bridge, your guide will tell you all the stories of the past as you head up to Lesser Town, where the tour finishes.


Activity Level : Light
Duration : 3 hours

Eat and Shop Green

Suggestion to explore on your own

Prague's traditional dishes may be meat-heavy, but the city remains a paradise for vegans and vegetarians. Visit Maitrea, in the Old Town, where you will find vegetarian takes on Czech classics. For sustainable shopping, check out Smetana Q , which offers wooden toys, jewelry, homewares, local designers, and upcycled fashion.

Eat and Shop Green

Day 6

Day 6 - Your Second Full Day in Prague

Vinohrady, Vrsovice, and Letna

Suggestion to explore on your own

Venture beyond the center to where Praguers spend their free time. Hang out with locals, and the end of the alphabet, in the neighborhoods of Vinohrady, Vrsovice, and Letna.


Prague's Vinohrady ("Royal Vineyards") neighborhood is one of the city's most pleasant. Start your exploration at Namesti Miru ("Peace Square"), a bustling intersection of roads and tram lines that is surrounded by bars and restaurants. Visit one of Prague's remaining vineyards in Havlicek Park, stroll leafy avenues, stop at a cafe, or while away the afternoon in Rieger Park and its beer gardens. The Vrsovice neighborhood has become the center of Prague's hip, alternative culture. There you'll find Krymska Street, where cool bars, restaurants, cinemas, cafes, and galleries make it something like Berlin's Kreuzberg. Letna Park is convenient fun. Stroll through the park, with its beer gardens and restaurants, then stop at the metronome monument to take in one of the city's best vistas. On the park's edge you'll find the Technical Museum and the National Museum of Agriculture, both worth visits.

Beer and Czech Tapas Small Group Tour

Alternative Vrsovice and Other Hang-Outs

Included in your vacation package price.

Prague's trendiest neighborhood for the past few years, Vrsovice offers plenty of alternative cafes, bars, and restaurants. This new alternative center hosts various festivals, happenings, and food events year round. If you're looking for vegetarian, vegan, raw, or just non-traditional restaurants this is the right place to go. If you'd like to escape blockbusters, visit the "Kino Pilotu" cinema. Next door, you'll find one of Prague's few vineyards, at Grebovka park (also called Havlickovy Sady), a great place to take in the sunset, and enjoy a glass of wine, in summer. If you'd like to visit other local neighborhoods, join one of the tours with a local tour guide.


Activity Level : Light
Duration : 4 hours

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.

Suggestion to explore on your own

Vienna is no stranger to the increased demand for stability worldwide. Sustainable shops, vegan and vegetarian restaurants, zero waste places, and many other eco-friendly opportunities can be found in this beautiful capital. If you're vegan, you're in luck, as almost every restaurant offers vegan options. The city's most popular market, the Naschmarkt is no exception, with its locally grown vegetables and fruits, vegan lunch options, and eco-friendly goods. For something a bit longer lasting, visit Muso Coroni for fully vegan beauty supplies, snacks, and clothing.

The Great Outdoors: Danube Park and Prater Park

Suggestion to explore on your own

When the weather is good, there are plenty of beautiful parks in Vienna that are perfect for a stroll or a picnic. We particularly like two of them. Danube Park is in the heart of the greenest district in Vienna. The park’s fragrant Rosarium is home to about 35,000 roses. Stop by the Iris Lake cafe for a lakeside coffee with a beautiful view. Another great option, especially if you’re with children, is Prater Park. It’s the location of the Giant Ferris Wheel, one of the most beloved symbols of Vienna.

On the way you can stop for a few hours in the capital of Slovakia, Bratislava. You would have a tour of the city by our driver guide and then some free time to enjoy lunch on your own.

The Paris of Central Europe, Budapest is the Queen of the Danube, a sprawling, regal city split in two halves by the mighty river. The city’s two UNESCO-listed halves, ancient Buda and modern Pest both have their charms and are linked by numerous picturesque bridges. From the Buda Castle to the Danube Embankment and the sprawling Andrassy Avenue, with its impressive architecture, there is plenty to keep you busy here, exploring and discovering this atmospheric city. It’s a little too big to explore only on foot, but the Pest side of the city is well laid out with broad avenues of the Parisian system, so it’s hard to get lost, and the public transportation, including the world's second oldest subway system, works well. Budapest has all the charm of Western Europe at a fraction of the price. Here you can taste excellent wines produced throughout the region, and even enjoy Michelin-star dining in various locations. We can offer you more than enough exciting activities in the city, from a visit to the incredible Parliament building to a boat cruise with dinner, or an exploration of Budapest’s communist past. The city also has a rich Jewish heritage, so you’ll find the perfect balance of history and modern culture here. Voted Best City in Europe in 2013 by Condé Nast Traveler readers and a regular in their top 3, Budapest really is a special city with activities to cater to every interest.

Suggestion to explore on your own

Many eco-friendly and sustainable places have opened in Budapest over the last few years. Popular food courtyards as Karavan and Vegan Garden offer amazing plant-based street foods. For sustainable choices, visit Ligeti Shop, a zero-waste bulk shop. Budapest is proud of its local ethical designers. Do you love jewelry, clothing, and would like to go home with a beautiful eco-friendly piece? Budapest is a paradise for you when it comes to ethical, sustainable fashion.

Budapest Market, Food, Coffee Private Tour

A Gastronomic Heaven

Please ask your travel advisor for the cost to add this to your package

The Hungarians have always placed emphasis on food, and their cuisine is often declared to be the best in Central Europe. During your walks in Budapest, you will see that almost every second place is either a coffeeshop, a restaurant or a pub. This gives you the chance to try whatever you want
and believe us when we say that it is absolutely worth your time. The best places are either in the fifth or seventh districts. And if you don't want to explore these on your own, we suggest taking our Private Market and Food Tour with a professional guide who would introduce you to classic local dishes,
wines, and spirits while showing you some of the best places to shop, eat and drink in the city, particularly the Great Market Hall.


Activity Level : Moderate
Duration : 3 hours 30 minutes

Day 12

Day 12 - Your Second Full Day in Budapest

Bike to Szentendre

Suggestion to explore on your own

If you'd like to surround yourself with art (and a surprising number of churches), head to the town of Szentendre. Sitting on the banks of the Danube, Szentendre is known for its artist's colony, which is reflected in its many galleries, museums, shops, and eclectic decor. We recommend visiting the Margit Kovacs Ceramic Museum, or one of the town’s marzipan museums. We offer tours of Szentendre, and it's easily accessible by train, but if you like to bike, grab a rental, and head north along the Danube for fourteen miles. You can certainly bike home once you've had your fill, or take a train back to Budapest.

Hiking the Hills of Budapest

Suggestion to explore on your own

Luckily for the people of Budapest, there are many options to go for a hike after a stressful week. Our favorite hiking route is the Normafa, where you can decide whether to go deep into the forest or spend some time in its giant meadows, enjoying the sun and scenic views of the city. Just grab a blanket, some snacks and drinks, and relax a little. Or you can so straight to the Elisabeth Tower, named after Empress Elisabeth (also referred to as Princess Sissi), who loved to go walking in these hills. If you go, be sure to have your camera ready, because the view from the top is amazing.

This was our first experience with JayWay Travel and it won't be our last. The responsiveness, service, and flexibility offered is wonderful. We determined what we wanted to do and when, and JayWay Travel made it happen. Everything that was arranged through them went exactly as planned, with no bumps along the way. Transfer services and tour guides were on time, knowledgeable, friendly, and accommodating. Truly a great experience and we are already looking at doing Spain and Portugal with them next year. Highly recommended.

This was the most relaxing trip we have ever taken knowing that everything had been planned for us. JayWay Travel did an excellent job with our itinerary and planning of our trip. I would highly recommend them and can't wait to have them plan our next European adventure.
