The Best of Central Europe

On your journey through the culturally rich countries of Central Europe, you’ll find a wide variety of sights and experiences. There is a world of history in Germany, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Hungary, and lots to be learned along the way. Many attractions will provide a first-hand look at the sites where some of our world’s most defining moments have taken place—both joyous and tragic. Visit the remains of the Berlin Wall and learn more about the somewhat recent conflicts that tore Germany in two—and the reunification that followed. In Prague, take a lighter look at our recent history with a visit to the architecturally mesmerizing “Dancing House” designed by Croatian-Czech architect, Vlado Milunic and Canadian-American architect, Frank Gehry. Be sure to call ahead and find out if you need an appointment as some of the most historical landmarks can become busy and require reservations for full access to the building or site.

The service in all areas was very good, with only a few minor exceptions. Overall our vacation organized by TripXpert offered a great way to explore Europe on a budget. We are recommending it to all our friends.

Berlin Wall

The Berlin Wall was built by the Eastern Germany government in 1961 as a barrier to keep out the “fascist influence” of Western Germany. The wall was torn down in 1989 and Germany was reunified. You can still see remains of the original wall at the Berlin Wall Memorial and Documentation Center.

Prague Dancing House

The Prague Dancing House was originally named Fred and Ginger after the famous American dancing duo, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. The architecture of these two structures on the riverfront in Prague, gives off a sense of motion and whimsy. The buildings were designed by Croatian-Czech architect, Vlado Milunic in cooperation with Canadian-American architect, Frank Gehry and are a must-see item while you’re in town.

Bratislava’s Opera House (Slovak National Theater)

Bratislava’s Opera House is a Neo-Renaissance-style building. It opened in 1886 as the City Theater. The outside of the building is decorated with busts of famous musical composers. The fountain out front is also a point of interest. It depicts a Greek drama regarding eternal youth. Make arrangements to see a ballet or opera during your visit.

Brandenburg Gate

The Brandenburg Gate is the site of the historical 1987 speech in which American President, Ronald Regan issued a stern command, “Mr. Gorbachov, tear down this wall!” After Germany reunified following the fall of the Berlin Wall, the Brandenburg Gate was transformed from being a monument of separation into a symbol of unity.

Reichstag

In order to get the most out of your visit to the Reichstag—a neo-Renaissance parliament building in Berlin, Germany—be sure to make an appointment. The roof terrace and glass dome of the Reichstag offer spectacular 360 views. Since it’s one of Berlin’s most historical landmarks, the place can become quite crowded.
