Fly into: Budapest Fly out of: Vienna
Total Duration: 12 Days

Though the cities in this jaunt have changed affiliations and nations more times than you'd care to count, they're all united by the blue Danube. This itinerary—perfect as a river cruise—starts in vibrant Budapest's baths and shops, moves to Bratislava's castles and wine bars, through the Baroque highlights of Linz and Dürnstein, before ending in the coffeehouses and museums of Vienna.

Fly into: Prague Fly out of: Budapest
Total Duration: 9 Days

These are the pillars of Central Europe. Prague is the centerpiece, beautifully preserved, walkable, and full of mysterious cobblestone side streets. Vienna is the stately big brother, officious, Hapsburgian, and old-school, from the desserts to the Opera. Budapest is still the scruffy upstart, 20 years after the dissolution of the Soviet Union, and the vibrant nightlife and traditional bathhouses make it the most foreign and inscrutable of the three.

Fly into: Vienna Fly out of: Munich
Total Duration: 11 Days

This itinerary gives the best of what Austria has to offer—and some bonus Bavaria. After Vienna, head west through the gingerbread towns of Dürnstein and Bad Ischl, then to Salzburg, Mozart's birthplace and stomping grounds, and finally to Munich's beer gardens and Bavarian beauty. From classic operas to lemon sponge cake and cathedrals, you'll get a real taste of Hapsburgian grandeur.
