3 Nights Vienna & 3 Nights Prague (DVP)

Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, and someone once said, “If European cities were a necklace, Prague would be a diamond among the pearls.” That must mean Prague is a girl’s best friend, too, right? That’s why Monograms has made it easy for girls—as well as women, men, and families—to vacation in Prague. And it’s not just Prague; we’ve also made Vienna easy. On this 7-day vacation, we've arranged your hotel reservations in both cities, sightseeing, daily breakfast, transfers to/from the train stations, and transportation via high-speed train from Vienna to Prague. Plus, you’ll have the services of a Local Host®—someone who will offer you suggestions, answer questions, help you navigate the cities, and make sure your vacation is all you want it to be…in both Vienna & Prague.

When you arrive in Vienna, we can pick you up at the airport so you don’t have to deal with the hassles of airport transfers. At your selected hotel, your Local Host will greet you with a warm welcome, answer any questions, and give you materials to help you get settled. The next morning, after included breakfast, we’ll pick you up at your hotel for guided sightseeing with a local expert. The highlight of your sightseeing tour is a visit to Schönbrunn Palace, the former summer residence of the Habsburg Dynasty. You’ll stand in awe as you see the splendor and luxury in the palace. In Prague, your guided sightseeing with a local expert includes the Castle Courtyards and Staromestske Square, dating back to the 12th century. You’ll hear the inside stories of Prague's famous sights as well as what it is like to live in this city that has changed so much in recent history.

In both cities, you’ll have a full day to explore on your own. In Vienna, you may want to ride the giant Ferris wheel at Prater park; explore St. Stephen's Cathedral; visit one of the many art and history museums; shop at the Vienna Naschmarkt, a colorful market dating back to the 16th century; take an excursion to nearby Bratislava, capital of Slovakia; or enjoy a Strauss concert. In Prague, you may want to take a tour of the Jewish Ghetto; cruise on the Vltava (Moldau) River; explore Prague Castle; browse for souvenirs on Charles Bridge, one of the oldest stone bridges in Europe; or enjoy a Czech beer at a local beer hall. Your Local Hosts will have plenty of suggestions.

And did we mention your package includes first-class travel via high-speed train between Vienna and Prague? Between the transfers and transportation we've included, the sightseeing and guides we've arranged, and the hotels we've booked, all you have to do is make sure you bring your camera. Add the comfort of knowing you’ll have a local who speaks the language and can assist you throughout your stay, and you've got yourself a marvelous vacation!

Meet a Local Host® in Vienna

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.

Theme of the year 2018: “Beauty and Abyss”

Numerous exhibitions at various museums like Kunsthistorisches Museum (Fine Arts Museum), Leopold Museum, Belvedere, MAK (Museum of Applied Arts) etc. will illustrate how artists, scientists, architects and many others had a lasting impact on Vienna in the years around 1900.

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.

Spittelberg

Also known as the “village in the city,”Spittelberg is the city’s second largest pedestrian zone with well preserved historical buildings, cobble-stone streets, and idyllic squares. A great place to relax, just a few minutes walk from the city center.
