    Signature

    We use premium hotels that are unique expressions of the region. Often they’ve had a previous life as a monastery or a castle, but in every case they offer an exceptionally comfortable stay.

    Bistro

    These are stylish 4-star properties that offer a casual and comfortable stay. Often without a 24-hour concierge or room service, they tend to be smaller family-run hotels that are perfect for the region.

Call us to create an independent travel experience that fits your needs—we can also arrange for a local guide.

Spend more time in Eastern Europe

We absolutely recommend that you arrive in Munich at least a day before your trip begins, as the Bavarian capital has much to offer the visitor, first-timer or otherwise. Similarly, at the end of your voyage, Budapest is a marvelous city that easily merits an extra day, if not more. Also consider renting a car to discover the Hungarian countryside, from azure Lake Balaton to the picturesque wine country of the Tokaj district.
