Billy Joel wants to know, “When will you realize… Vienna waits for you?” Maybe you’ve heard the song and know Vienna waits, but you didn’t want to deal with the hassles that come with planning a vacation. Well, now you don’t have to, because Monograms has made it easy for you to travel to Vienna as well as Munich. On this 7-day vacation, we’ve arranged your hotel reservations, sightseeing, transportation between cities, daily breakfast, and transfers from/to your hotels to/from the train stations. Plus, in each city you’ll have a Local Host®, someone who is there to answer your questions, offer you guidance, and help ensure your vacation runs smoothly.
Your vacation begins when you arrive in Vienna, where we can pick you up at the airport and take you to your selected hotel. Here, your Local Host will help you get settled and present you with materials, so you can start exploring the city immediately. The next morning, after included breakfast, we’ll pick you up at your hotel for guided sightseeing with a local expert, someone who will share the city’s inside stories and who knows what it is like to live in the city. Your sightseeing features Schönbrunn Palace, the former summer residence of the Habsburg Dynasty. Just wait until you see the opulence and splendor in this palace! In Munich, your sightseeing with a local expert includes stories about the Oktoberfest grounds and a visit to BMW World. You’ll also visit the park at Nymphenburg Palace, summer residence of the former Bavarian royalty, and you’ll enjoy watching the famous Glockenspiel in Marienplatz, Munich’s central square.
In both cities, you’ll have a free day to explore on your own (with the support of your Local Host, of course). From Vienna, you may want to take an excursion to nearby Bratislava, capital of Slovakia; visit one of the many museums; ride the Ferris wheel at Prater park, a symbol of Vienna; or just enjoy one of the many coffee houses. In Munich, perhaps visit the Residenz Museum, former Wittelsbach residence and now one of Europe’s finest palace museums; take an excursion to Linderhof and Neuschwanstein Castles; or just relax at a Biergarten with one of the local Bavarian beers.
And don’t forget…your package includes travel via the high-speed train (first-class) from Vienna to Munich. We’ll also pick you up at your Vienna hotel, transfer you to the train station, help you get on the correct train, pick you up at the Munich train station, and take you to your Munich hotel. It’s just another service we offer to ensure your vacation is stress-free and fun! In fact, between the transportation and transfers we’ve included, the sightseeing and guides we’ve arranged, and the hotels we’ve booked, the only thing you’ll have to focus on is which beer to try in Munich! Add the comfort of knowing you’ll have a Local Host in each city to assist you, and you’ve got yourself a wonderful vacation. Just remember…Vienna—and Munich—wait for you!
