Starting and finishing point
Want to start our rail tour somewhere else? Not a problem. Just let us know and we will book you connecting train tickets to Vienna, and get you back home at the end of the tour. Additional fees will apply.
Day 1 - Vienna
The tour starts in the Imperial City, Vienna. Harry Lime walked the streets of this city in Carol Reed’s famous post-war thriller The Third Man, a story of intrigue and Cold War paranoia. Today, Vienna is known for its quality of life, its musical legacy and its beautiful historic centre filled with palaces and gardens.
Your hotel is a short walk from the train station and is located between the two parts of the Belvedere park. A walk through the Baroque gardens is highly recommended!
Day 2 – Budapest
A morning train will take you to Budapest. The Danube river has followed you here and splits the city into Buda and Pest. Enjoy a bike ride through the boulevards, up to Buda castle, or onto one of the islands (“sziget”) in the Danube. Your hotel is located right next to the train station and on the main road, which leads straight to the Danube.
Day 3 – Krakow
Arrival in Krakow in the evening. You will be staying near the train station and a stone’s throw away from the Old Town and surrounding Planty Park. We recommend an extra night in Krakow in order to fully enjoy the city, or if you want to take the optional excursion to Auschwitz.
A night train option from Budapest to Krakow is available. Please contact us for an adjusted quote.
Day 4 - Berlin
Travel via Warsaw and arrive in the evening in Berlin. You will be staying near the main train station, a short walk from the Reichstag, the Tiergarten, Brandenburg Gate and the Wall. Berlin is a vibrant city with lots to offer. We recommend an extra night in Berlin.
