    • Hotel Information: Final hotel accommodation will be confirmed in 2019.
    • Oberammergau Accommodation: Trafalgar has secured hotel accommodation either in Oberammergau or close by in the picturesque villages of the Bavarian Alps. Please note that single and triple rooms are not available for the Oberammergau stay.

      About this trip

      Magical cities of bridges, cathedrals, cobbled lanes, and castles - central Europe's capitals put on a stately show in which the leads are played by Bohemian Prague, the eclectic Slovakian capital of Bratislava, and the beautiful Danube river featuring the regal cities of Vienna and Budapest where you'll break bread with a local family and hear of their heart-warming WWII rescue. Trafalgar has secured premium tickets for you to attend the once in a decade performance of the Passion Play in the picturesque Bavarian town of Oberammergau.
