Central Europe tours - Where to go and what to do

Central Europe tours will take you to many different countries like Poland, Czechoslovakia, Austria, and Hungary. The countries are very close in geographical. Train travel to the countries usually takes but a couple of hours before you are in an entirely new country.
 

  • Warsaw - If history is an interest for you, The Old Town of Warsaw is a place that will get your travel juices flowing. It has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and has been completely rebuilt after the destruction of World War II. A mermaid protects the area, it overlooks the Old Town, and it sits just at the entrance of the Old Town Market. The market hosts many restaurants and cafes to pass the time away. The Royal Residence that Polish royalty lived in from the 16th-18th century is now a museum, and you can be transported back in time when you visit. There are many museums to visit in Warsaw, but one that can’t be missed is the Warsaw Rising Museum. 
  • Krakow - In Krakow, the Wieliczka Salt Mines offer a unique subterranean look at art and religion. For many years miners extracted rock salt from the mines and then carved many statues that still hold their vibrancy. While in the tunnels, you can go the St Kinga's Chapel, an underground cathedral made up entirely of rock salt. For Holocaust survivors and those who were touched by it, Auschwitz-Birkenau is a sobering experience. The suffering that occurred there during WWII by the Jewish community, comes haunting to life when you tour the camp. The camp is just a short drive outside of Krakow and one trip that will be an awakening experience. 
  • Prague - In the ‘City of a Thousand Spires,’ Prague, is famous for the many churches and old towers that are part of the landscape that dates back over a thousand years. This city is the architectural gem of the world. There are more than many examples of Gothic, Baroque, Renaissance and Art Nouveau expressions all across the city. Spend a day touring the Jewish Quarter and visit the synagogues that have stood for centuries containing fine Jewish art. Wenceslas Square is a treat; it hosts the National Museum that holds numerous treasures for any art lover to adore. On the promenade, you can shop at many boutiques, enjoy fine food and sip cocktails at one the many outdoor cafes that dot the street. In the historic city center of Prague, the Old Town Square hosts a unique timepiece. A 15th century, Astronomical Clock – every hour, the clock’s activity is visible for the tourist. The 12-apostles and other figures move in sequence in procession across the clock face. It is quite an engineering feat from the 15th century and shouldn’t be missed.
  • Vienna - No trip to Vienna would be complete without a boat tour of the Danube River that eases its way through Vienna. It is a great jumping-off point for the exhibits and monuments that will take your breath away in Vienna. Certainly, Vienna has more than its share of museums and art galleries that display some of the best fine art in Europe, but it is a nice break from art and culture is Prater. It is a large park that draws locals and tourists alike, it has a large green tract to relax and unwind in, and an amusement park to keep the kids occupied for the day. Vienna is known for the Lipizzan Stallions and they perform around the world to the delight of many. You can visit the Spanish Riding School for an up-close and personal look of the horses that perform classic dressage for the guests who attend.
  • Budapest - Budapest is another city that sits on the banks of the Danube River and like many cities that are on the river and boat tours are very popular. Hungary is another country that lived under the yoke of Soviet oppression and tour through the House of Terror will put that into perspective. Another beautiful historic monument that commemorates Hungarian resilience is the Fisherman’s Bastion. It was built in the 20th century to recognize the contribution of the Fisherman’s Guild in a Neo-Gothic style. The Guild defended Budapest in the Middle Ages against foreign invaders and they have never been forgotten for their valour. The Faust Wine Cellar is a place where you can sample the fruit of the vine that comes some of the 22 wine regions in Hungary. The cellar sits below the Buda Castle and sees many tourists come through. The popularity of the cellar demands that you book in advance should you wish to taste the wine on a tour that you never forget. A trip to the largest synagogue outside Israel is where you find yourself when you visit the Dohany Street Synagogue.

We recently returned from a IBMT Tour for our son’s Bar Mitzvah and we all agree that it was the best vacation that we have taken to date.  The tour was well organized and the staff were friendly and very knowledgeable.  The events that they include in the tour include everything “must see” in Israel and activities that will make you laugh, cry, and everything in between.  The tour allows for activities for all ages and accommodates anyone who wants to do more or less than they have planned.  It is ...

To Ornan and  IBMT Tours staff,

We just got back from tour with IBMT for our Bat Mitzvah Tour in Israel.

We are so glad we have chosen the right company for our tour as I can’t express my words of how wonderful this tour company was, starting before we left, the personal service they showed here back home and later the service in Israel with our great tour guide Natalie who was so informative on every place we went and what we saw. It was so wonderful to listen to a ...

Dear Sheryl,

The visit to Israel was better than advertised. All of us had an awesome and inspiring vacation or as I call it, an education. Danny is one of the nicest and smartest men I have had the pleasure of meeting. He made the trip so special and I cannot imagine any other person showing us Israel but Danny.

Hotels were great but for Eilat, but no big deal. Food in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv restaurants were delicious. Sheila in Tel Aviv was extraordinary. Dinners at hotels just “so so”. Loved Mitzpe ...

Craig Savage,

Ornan,

Thank you very much for the IBMT Bat Mitzvah tour we just completed.  We had a fabulous time & there were lots of special little parts from the tour that contributed to that.  The different experiences for dinner were very special, and I liked the variety of different types of sites/attractions.  Our tour guide Natalie was excellent, and I heard good things from the other group about their guide Liat.

Thanks again

Sara / Ornan,

I had a fabulous time on this tour and highly recommend it to anyone interested.  We had an especially knowledgeable guide with us Doron Hoffman who as a history major added so much more information and had a great demeanor.  I was part of an international group and made some new friends.   

Regards,

Hi Ornan,

"Opting to celebrate our son's bar mitzvah this summer with IBMT is one of the best decisions we've ever made.  The itinerary took us to places around the country that I've never experienced on previous trips to Israel.  Experiencing our son's bar mitzvah atop Masada as opposed to a more rushed, crowded experience at the wall truly sets IBMT apart from other tour companies.  The professionalism of the IBMT staff both in North America and Israel was superb...everything was incredibly well organized and we were heartened ...
