Itinerary Input Please: Munich/Salzburg/Prague

Jump to last reply

I'd appreciate the wise input of those who have been to these great cities. We arrive in early August, staying in Munich 5 nights and Prague for 3 nights. We'll be taking a day trip to Salzburg from Munich. We've never been to any of the above--our European travel experience is limited to Paris and Amsterdam.

We're beer and wine lovers in our mid-30s. The goal is to relax, eat well, and enjoy nice weather with good beer! We don't want to be too rushed.

MUNICH:
1. Day One: arrive from U.S. at 8 a.m. Check into Louis Hotel on Viktualienmarkt and explore Marienplatz. Take Sandeman’s 3 hour free tour that meets at Marienplatz at 10:45 a.m. or 1:00 p.m. Dinner at Der Pschorr or Andechser Am Dom for outside seating.

2. Day Two: beer garden crawl and day at English Garden. We plan on going to Hofbrauhaus, Wirtshaus Ayingers, Augustiner-Grossgaststätte, Chinesischer Turm, Hirschau, and Seehaus beer gardens, livers willing! Dinner at Riva Bar & Pizzeria for pizza or somewhere nearby.

3. Day Three: day trip to Salzburg. Leave early morning 1.5 hr. train on Bayern ticket and return at night. Walk around Old Town including Mozart’s birthplace, and Mozartplatz. Original torte at Sacher Hotel. Salzburg cathedral and Hohensalzburg Fortress. Augustiner Braustubl beer garden. Live music possibilities: Nachmittagskonzerte Salzburg afternoon chamber concert at 4 p.m. (Mirabell garden castle chapel, 18 Euros/each).

4. Day Four: shopping on Maximilianstrasse. Explore the Munich Residenz. Live music at Waldwirtschaft Grobhesselowe beer garden with view of river. Dinner at Brenner Bistro for Italian or Japanese at hotel.

5. Day Five: Dacau Concentration Camp through Sandeman’s New Europe. Afterwards go to other beer gardens in Neaheausen area: Hirschgarten and Augustiner Keller:

PRAGUE:
6. Day Six: direct bus to Prague. Arrive at 2 p.m. Check in at Four Seasons Hotel. Walk around Old Town area near hotel and to Old Town Square with Tyn Church and Astronomical Church. Walk over Charles Bridge. Explore Jewish Quarter. Dinner at Hergetova Cihelna for outdoor views. Prague Beer Museum.

7. Day Seven: Strahov Monastery and Brewery. Take I Like E-Bike electric bike tour, “Viewpoints” of all of the major sites, including castle (5 hours). Dinner at Cotto Cruddo at hotel—outdoor terrace. Reduta Jazz bar.
