3 Nights Vienna & 3 Nights Munich (DV)

Billy Joel wants to know, “When will you realize... Vienna waits for you?” Maybe you’ve heard the song and know Vienna waits, but you didn’t want to deal with the hassles that come with planning a vacation. Well, now you don’t have to, because Monograms has made it easy for you to travel to Vienna as well as Munich. On this 7-day vacation, we've arranged your hotel reservations, sightseeing, transportation between cities, daily breakfast, and transfers from/to your hotels to/from the train stations. Plus, in each city you’ll have a Local Host®, someone who is there to answer your questions, offer you guidance, and help ensure your vacation runs smoothly.

Your vacation begins when you arrive in Vienna, where we can pick you up at the airport and take you to your selected hotel. Here, your Local Host will help you get settled and present you with materials, so you can start exploring the city immediately. The next morning, after included breakfast, we’ll pick you up at your hotel for guided sightseeing with a local expert, someone who will share the city’s inside stories and who knows what it is like to live in the city. Your sightseeing features Schönbrunn Palace, the former summer residence of the Habsburg Dynasty. Just wait until you see the opulence and splendor in this palace! In Munich, your sightseeing with a local expert includes stories about the Oktoberfest grounds and a visit to BMW World. You'll also visit the park at Nymphenburg Palace, summer residence of the former Bavarian royalty, and you'll enjoy watching the famous Glockenspiel in Marienplatz, Munich’s central square.

In both cities, you’ll have a free day to explore on your own (with the support of your Local Host, of course). From Vienna, you may want to take an excursion to nearby Bratislava, capital of Slovakia; visit one of the many museums; ride the Ferris wheel at Prater park, a symbol of Vienna; or just enjoy one of the many coffee houses. In Munich, perhaps visit the Residenz Museum, former Wittelsbach residence and now one of Europe’s finest palace museums; take an excursion to Linderhof and Neuschwanstein Castles; or just relax at a Biergarten with one of the local Bavarian beers.

And don't forget…your package includes travel via the high-speed train (first-class) from Vienna to Munich. We’ll also pick you up at your Vienna hotel, transfer you to the train station, help you get on the correct train, pick you up at the Munich train station, and take you to your Munich hotel. It's just another service we offer to ensure your vacation is stress-free and fun! In fact, between the transportation and transfers we've included, the sightseeing and guides we've arranged, and the hotels we've booked, the only thing you’ll have to focus on is which beer to try in Munich! Add the comfort of knowing you’ll have a Local Host in each city to assist you, and you've got yourself a wonderful vacation. Just remember…Vienna—and Munich—wait for you!

Hello, my name is Annie. Vienna has a very long and interesting history, and is known as one of the cultural centers of Europe. I look forward to welcoming Monograms guests to my hometown and sharing my knowledge of this beautiful city.

Belvedere and Klimt

At Lower Belvedere, the exhibition “Klimt is not the end. Awakening in Central Europe” shows 80 works by artists including Klimt, Schiele, Kokoschka, Moser and Egger-Lienz. Walk up to the Upper Belvedere for splendid views over Vienna and/or visit its museum and see the beautiful painting “the Kiss” by Gustav Klimt. A must if you are in Vienna!!!

Kunsthistorisches Museum (Fine Arts Museum)

Thanks to the acquisitions by and the patronage of the House of Habsburg, the Museum of Fine Arts has an unrivaled collection of old masters, including a vast selection of works by Pieter Bruegel the Elder. And until Sep 2nd, the "Klimt bridge" will again be installed in the stairway of the Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna. At a height of 40 ft, visitors have a direct view of, among others, the picture cycle of 13 paintings designed by Klimt, which was created between the pillars and arcades. These so-called spandrel and intercolumnar paintings are among the most important of Gustav Klimt's early works.

The Sigmund Freud Museum

Make your own analysis of the famed psychological pioneer in the building where he lived and worked for nearly 50 years. See Freud's personal possessions as well as the largest psycho-analysis library in Europe.

Old City Walk, Imperial Walking Route

Ask your Local Host about a walking route to discover the fascinating older parts of Vienna´s historic city center with its legends and paths or the Imperial Route to see classic architecture, elegant boulevards, the Hofburg Palace and other memorable sites.

Imperial Crypt

Visit the Imperial Crypt for a fascinating glimpse into the past. It is located beneath the Capuchin Church and members of Austria’s former Habsburg dynasty have been entombed there since 1633.

Spanish Riding School

Equestrian buffs will find this Viennese institution irresistible. Founded in 1572, it's the oldest and last riding school in the world where classic dressage is still practiced in its purest form. See world-famous Lipizzaner stallions go through their steps.

House of Music

What better place than Vienna to walk the halls of music and peek into its future. Listen to what an unborn child hears in the womb, paint a picture with a palette of tones, or steer a note through a musical landscape.

The Vienna Naschmarkt

A Viennese institution in the city center, this colorful market dates back to the 16th century. There are small restaurants and cafés nearby for lunch and dinner.

Traditional “Heurigen” Wine Tavern

Visit one of the traditional Viennese “Heurigen” (wine taverns) located in the north of the city, right where the slopes of the Vienna Woods end and the vineyards begin. Enjoy top Viennese wines and delicious food. Ask your Local Host for the most typical taverns - one is still housed inside a former residence of Beethoven.

Wiener Schnitzel, Apfelstrudel

Sample the classic Wiener Schnitzel or Tafelspitz, and try apricot Schnaps. Treat yourself to Apfelstrudel, coffee and chocolate cake, or other sweet delicacies in the grand and traditional Viennese coffee houses.

Shopping

Walk along the Kärntnerstrasse and/or Mariahilferstrasse, shop for concert music DVDs, crystal glass, enamel jewelry or ornaments, wool lodenware, Viennese wafer biscuits, and Mozart chocolate.

Servitenviertel

Located in Vienna´s 9th district, a few blocks away from Sigmund Freund Museum, you find the so called Servitenviertel. The heart of the “Viertel” are Servitengasse and Servitenplatz - a cosy and neat little churchsquare with benches and huge trees. Enjoy village feeling with a mixture of pubs, restaurants, coffeebars, visit a chocolate manufactory or shop at tiny stores for flowers, toys, gifts, books, fashion, vintage and more.

Prater's Giant Ferris Wheel & Madame Tussauds

The heart of the Prater amusement park with more than 250 attractions is the Giant Ferris Wheel which, by taking a ride, offers a breathtaking view of the city. Another highlight is the world-famous waxworks museum Madame Tussauds with over 80 wax figures – among them Austrian and historic personalities and also international celebrities. Well known and loved by Viennese is the traditional inn “Schweizerhaus” with a huge beer garden and famous for its trademark, the roasted pork leg. Next to the amusement park the Green Prater is a paradise for walkers, runners, bicyclists and horseback riders, and is highly appreciated as a large leisure area within the city limits.

Munich

Munich Museums

Munich has over 50 museums; ask your Local Host for information according to your interests. Some favorites are: Alte Pinakothek is a glorious museum with an immense collection of paintings from the greatest European artists of the 14th through the 18th centuries. See a self-portrait by Rembrandt and a Madonna by Leonardo da Vinci. Families and the technically-minded will love spending a few fascinating hours viewing the master works of Science and Technology at the Deutsches Museum (German Museum). Reopened in 2013 after a 4-year renovation, the Lenbach Museum contains a variety of works by Munich painters and contemporary artists, such as Wassily Kandinsky, Gabriele Münter, Franz Marc, August Macke, Marianne von Werefkin, and Paul Klee. Wander the themed rooms of the Stadtmuseum. The collections include puppet theaters, thousands of musical instruments from around the world, more than 500,000 photographs, and a history of brewing. Villa Stuck designed by the artist and owner Franz von Stuck, incorporates floors, ceilings, and walls into a single beautiful work of art.

Asamkirche

The brothers Cosmas Damian & Egid Quirin seemed divinely inspired when they created a baroque church for themselves, which turned out so magnificent that their 18th century compatriots forced them to make it accessible to the public. From the ornate façade to the ceiling fresco of St John Nepomuk, nearly every inch is a delight.

Schatzkammer der Residenz

Visit the former royal palace of Bavarian monarchs and stroll through the Schatzkammer (Treasury) halls. You’ll see lavish crowns from generations of monarchs, scepters and ceremonial swords, table wear and extravagant crafts from China, India, Iran, Mexico, and Turkey.

Tierpark Hellabrunn (Zoo)

The Müncher Tierpark was founded in 1911 as the first “geo-zoo” in the world with approximately 460 species and about 5,000 animals. At any time of year, its changing moods offer an impressive glimpse into the natural habitats of the protected landscape of the Isar floodplains. The animals are comfortable thanks to the species-appropriate approach. Without distracting bars and fences, the visitors can observe the animals with ease.

Traditional German Souvenirs

It’s hard to imagine leaving Munich, home of the Oktoberfest, without a traditional German beer stein. Other traditional souvenirs include Black Forest cuckoo clocks, music boxes, nutcrackers, lederhosen and felt hats.

Munich Beer Gardens and Bavarian Cuisine

Countless beer gardens populate the city, and it’s a great chance to relax with the locals. Seats beneath shady trees are plentiful, and there’s a wide variety of beers to choose from. Local food specialties include sauerbraten (marinated beef dish), dumplings and sauerkraut, Weisswurst (sausage), Kartoffelpuffer (potato pancakes), and Kaiserschmarrn (sweet pancakes with raisins, rum, and almonds). Taste one of Germany’s famous white wines particularly the Riesling; also try Apfelwein (apple wine), radler (a mix of beer and German-style soda or lemonade) and spezi (German orange cola).

Opera & Concerts in Munich

Opera and Dance is an international language, as an opera lover you will feel at home in Munich immediately; or listen to live music at one of Munich's many concert halls where music of all styles and for all tastes is played regularly. Ask your Local Host for more details.
