Central Europe Discovery: Best of Germany, Czech Republic & Austria 

CENTRAL EUROPE DISCOVERY: BEST OF GERMANY, CZECH REPUBLIC & AUSTRIA A successful Eurotrip is not that hard to achieve if you know what to look for! With expansive cities of culture, history, and art, the whole region is your straightforward way to some fascinating historical sites, art museums, and gorgeous cityscapes. 

Now, Central Europe specifically allows you endless opportunities to explore, but it might be a bit hard to whip up an itinerary that includes the best of the best. Today, let’s visit Germany, the Czech Republic, and Austria and find the very best ways to discover Central Europe. 

Brandenburg GateGermany 

One of Europe’s largest countries, Germany offers up a wide variety of landscapes, and we do not only mean literal, natural ones, though there are plenty of those as well! A country of fascinating history, distinct culture, and appreciation for art, Germany gently seduces you into deciding that it might just be your favorite place in the world. 

If you are looking for historical landmarks, start by visiting the famous Brandenburg Gate. The monument in Berlin was built in the 18th century, and though it was one of the most-damaged historical sites during the Second World War, it still stands as one of the top-visited locations. 

You should also see the Cologne Cathedral, the most beautiful Gothic church in Germany, lying on the River Rhine. It took more than five centuries to build due to some dramatic events that kept damaging the grounds, but the cathedral is a must-see. 

Some cultural sites to add to your bucket list include bars, restaurants, and entertainment sites, such as the opera. If you wish for a straightforward way into the everyday life of a German citizen, do not hesitate to explore their cuisine and performance venues, such as the National Theater of Munich. 

Lastly, if you want to get a closer look at German art, the best places to visit are the Pergamon Museum, Museum Ludwig, and Hamburg Art Hall. All of these are widely acclaimed and introduce you to Greek and Roman antiquity, contemporary art, and exceptional collections of historical pieces. 

Charles BridgeThe Czech Republic 

To continue with your Eurortrip, we suggest a train from Munich to Prague that is quick, comfortable, and leads you to explore one of the greatest countries in Europe. 

The Czech Republic is the core of Central Europe and probably the most visited place for tourists who wish to get acquainted with distinct European traditions, art, and culture. 

Speaking of the most-visited, here are some historical sites you should visit. Starting with the famous Charles Bridge, the Czech Republic has some essential-to-see locations representing years of historical development and preservation. The Bridge is known for its medieval architecture and the gorgeous design that adorns it. 

You should walk it all the way to Prague Castle or the Old Town. Whichever way you choose to go! Both of these sites represent the formative years of the Czech Republic and pinpoint some of the most significant historical occurrences. 

If you wish to taste a bit of culture, go for the Czech beer. Especially if you are in Prague. There is a large number of breweries producing the most delicious and refreshing drinks that are a huge part of the Czech culture. 

For the art, see the National Gallery of Prague, which introduces you to the most famous and best pieces, Illusion Art that will send your brain into a whirlwind, and the Museum of Decorative Arts that will uplift and lighten your mood for the rest of the stay! 

Fine Arts, Vienna, Mozart:Austria

Finally, let’s board the train to Austria. The epitome of elegance, culture, and high art, the country is a true European gem. 

Firstly, you should absolutely visit the Schonbrunn Palace in Vienna, one of the most famous and expansive sites in Austrian history. See the imperial ceremonial rooms, the gardens, and the legacy of the Hofburg family. 

If nothing else, you should 100% visit the Vienna State Opera House to feed the cultural beast inside of you. Probably the most famous Opera House in Europe, and the whole world, actually, it represents intricate European design, impeccable music taste, some of the best artists in the world, and the importance of fine arts in Austria. If you do not manage to catch a show, at least book a tour! 

Also, make sure you have enough time to visit Salzburg, even if for a day. You can head back to the capital city via the train from Salzburg to Vienna, but dedicate the bigger part of your day to exploring this city. Get ready to explore one of the most beautiful castles in Europe, Fortress Hohensalzburg, the Old Town that Mozart used for his inspiration, and St. Peter’s Abby, an impressive building complex of 690 CE, a testament to the genius, architectural Austian mind. 

Hopefully, you now have a better idea of what to see on your trip to Central Europe! Remember to do some more research, and also to book everything in advance. These sites are some of the best of the best that Europe can offer, so they are often a bit overcrowded. However, no matter how many shoulders you brush, it is all worth it in the end. Have the best time and good luck!
