+ TOUR OVERVIEW

Welcome to the VoyEdge RX Prague to Munich tour! One of our absolutely favorite trips we have ever made! This tour starts off in the legendary Eastern European city of Prague, which is home to the world's biggest castle, only astronomical clock and more incredible architecture. You will get acquainted with this gothic cathedral city before heading south to the uber-charming city of Cesky Krumlov for the day and resting in Salzburg.

Your time in Austria will be capped with an optional day hike to the 'Eagle's Nest' in the Berchtesgaden (Hitler's WW2 hideout) with sweeping views of the Austrian Alps. From there, you will explore a bit of Salzburg before heading into Munich to explore Neuschwanstein Castle in Southern Bavaria (yes, more castles) before living it up at Springfest, or: 'Fruhlingsfest' - which is Munich's smaller cousin to Oktoberfest, albeit with much better weather!

Enjoy your day at Springfest and the myriad of beer-drinking tents as you celebrate with locals. Don't forget to tour the city itself with Lenny's Bike Tours and explore the Englisch Garden and downtown Munich.

Finish the trip with a morning day trip to Dachau - Munich's closest concentration camp for a solemn reminder of Europe's darker days before heading back to the Munich Airport for departure in the late afternoon.

CrossFit box drop-ins and travel workouts included daily, but never optional.

ITINERARY

 

WELCOME TO PRAGUE

april 21, 2019 - welcome to bohemia

Prague is the capital of the Czech Republic and has a population of 1.2 million people. Being a former Soviet Bloc country, the highlights and gothic architecture have really only been uncovered for the last 20 years or so. Between the incredibly ornate castles, churches, and cobblestone streets, this is a traveler’s paradise. Part of what makes Prague so unique is its beauty during the daytime, but the night is just as grand. At night in Prague, the majority of the bars and clubs are open until nearly sunrise.

Whether you're signed up to enjoy the nightlife, or bask in the culture and history of Prague, you're in for a real treat after your arrival. Your pick up from the Prague airport (PRG) will be paid for, and the group will enjoy a walking tour after check-in to our accommodations, followed by a group dinner to start off our adventure.

Fun Fact: Prague is home to the largest castle in the world. 

Avg. temp in Prague in April = 61 F / 16 C

Known as the 'Fairy Tale City' of Europe, you'll have more than enough to do in Prague. The shopping is incredibly cheap, the food exquisite, and the nightlife is fit for the bold. You'll have a magical day exploring every nook and cranny of Prague.

april 23, 2019 - Césky Krumlóv 

The small town of Cesky Krumlov is the second most popular tourist attraction in the Czech Republic, and has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage site for good reason. The well preserved town looks like it's straight out of the 14th century, with curious alleyways creating an ornate labyrinth into the city center. The massive Krumlov castle dominates the old town, and is an incredible peek back into the lives of the aristocratic rulers of Bohemia through the centuries. It was originally built in the year 1240, and you'll tour every nook and cranny of it after our walking tour. You'll have the rest of the day to explore pubs and shopping districts, and walk about town. From there, we'll hop the bus and head to Salzburg, and check-in to our accommodations.

Fun fact: Krumlóv Castle is the second biggest castle in the world, behind Prague Castle. 

Avg. temp in Cesky Krumlov in April = 64 F / 18 C

Today we have some time in Salzburg, the birthplace of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Its story-book old town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site dominated by churches, castles, and palaces. We’ll also be exploring a place of untouched nature at Berchtesgaden National Park which houses over 155 miles of some of the best hikes in Germany. Founded in 1978, Germany's only alpine National Park is home to lush forests, rare orchids, over 700 different kinds of butterflies, red deer and several pairs of golden eagles. Finally, we’ll hop on the train to Munich where we’ll check in to our hotel for the remainder of the trip.

Fun fact: The Krimml Falls (Krimmler Wasserfalle), in the state of Salzburg, are Europe’s tallest waterfalls, reaching a height of over 1,200 feet.

Neuschwanstein Castle

april 25, 2019 - Neuschwanstein Castle

We kick the day off with an included day trip to Neuschwanstein Castle, located about an hour away from Munich. This fairytale castle originally spawned the idea for Walt Disney's famous castle at Disney World’s Magic Kingdom. This gem is located on a steep mountain pass in the heart of Bavaria. King Ludwig II commissioned the castle in 1868, just two years after Austria and Bavaria were conquered by Prussia. More than 1.5 million people tour the castle every year. We’ll be exploring some hiking trails surrounding this fairytale castle for some epic views. Afterward we’ll return to Munich for an included group dinner .

Fun fact: Despite it's medieval look, Neuschwanstein Castle was finished in the 19th century, served no defensive purposes, and has no throne room due to King Ludwig II dying before its completion. This castle also served as the inspiration for Disney World's famous castle.

Avg. temp at Neuschwanstein Castle in April = 46 F / 7 C

april 27, 2019 - munich, SPRINGFEST, Dachau

Optional day trip: Part of Munich's history eclipses the dark days of World War 2. As amazing and colorful as Munich is today, Germans in the area have not forgotten about the atrocities committed during World War 2. The Dachau Concentration Camp is one of those places the Germans have left open for visitors to come, view, and learn from. As Hitler's first concentration camp, Dachau initially housed political prisoners. However, it eventually became a death camp where hundreds of of thousands of Jews died from malnutrition, disease, or execution. It serves as a dark place, and is a stark contrast to the tents of Springfest, but it's definitely worth experiencing. This will be provided as an optional tour. You may also just stay in Munich and enjoy the rest of Springfest or spend the day exploring. Tonight we’ll have a farewell group dinner.

Fun fact: More than 32,000 people lost their lives at Dachau as prisoners. 'Selfies' at the camp are not allowed.
