Get ready for an assortment of intriguing ways to explore this vivacious city, such as a “Morning with the Masters” at the Vienna Art History Museum, where you’ll join an art historian for a captivating tour; or a panoramic tour of the city’s Ringstrasse, a circular grand boulevard that surrounds Vienna’s Old Town historic district and famous monuments. (Breakfast Buffet, Lunch, Dinner)

Enjoy a full day of leisure in Vienna, with the choice to explore the “City of Waltzes” and dive into its vast artistic and musical legacy. The city is known for its imperial palaces, famous residents and expansive art collections. See the highlights as you take in Old Town’s art and food, including scrumptious pastries. Or discover Viennese history and the collection of Habsburg family treasures. It’s a good thing you have plenty of time. (Breakfast Buffet, Lunch, Dinner)

Day 4: Dürnstein
Natural wonders of the Wachau Valley and exquisite food and wine are on the menu for your day in Dürnstein. Meander around the town’s beautiful streets lined with wildly photogenic buildings and restaurants teeming with wine produced on the outskirts of town. You won’t want to miss a sampling of the region’s most acclaimed wines. See a saffron workshop and get an exclusive look at the making of the spice as precious as gold.

Day 5: Engelhartszell, Passau
Arrive in the afternoon in the “City of Three Rivers,” where medieval lanes, tunnels, cathedrals and archways fuse with modern shopping malls and buildings. Marvel at the Italian baroque-style St. Stephen’s Church, which holds the second largest church pipe organ in the world (way to go, Passau) or set out on a panoramic tour of the city with mini hikes to the best vistas. Your afternoon brings new experiences in the forest-dotted district of Engelhartszell. Experience Bavaria’s great outdoors on a scenic bike ride along the Danube to Engelhartszell. (Breakfast Buffet, Lunch, Dinner)

Day 6: Regensburg
Spend the morning discovering Regensburg’s long line of dukes, kings and bishops that called the former Bavarian capital and Free Imperial City home. Regensburg boasts the largest medieval Old Town north of the Alps (over 1,500 listed buildings), a prominent skyline and a large collection of museums, exhibits and theaters. Find your need for speed with a tour of the state-of-the-art BMW factory. Tour the carmaker’s cutting-edge plant and learn how it’s manufactured millions of cars. Futuristic and antiquated—it’s the best of both worlds in splendid Regensburg. (Breakfast Buffet, Lunch, Dinner)

Day 7: Roth, Nuremberg
Medieval Nuremberg is a charming walled city nestled on the banks of the Main River and is characterized by its fortifications, stone towers and Middle Ages remnants.

After you’ve experienced Bamberg’s city life, see it from above with a hike up Michaelsberg Hill. (Breakfast Buffet, Lunch, Dinner)
