Highlights

Museum Island, the Reichstag, Checkpoint Charlie, Holocaust, the Kurfürstendamm, Charlottenburg Palace just to name a few. Berlin's nightlife is world renowned. With the 20th Anniversary of the Berlin Wall on November 9th, there's no real better time to visit this city. Be sure to visit Brandenburg Gate and Potsdamer Platz, where 21 years ago, you could only look only see from a distance because of the Berlin Wall.

The "city of a thousand spires," Prague has a lot to offer its visitors. Since it was basically untouched during WWII, it's a haven for those who love architecture and art. With fantastic buildings from every major European movement, many recently cleaned, just walking around Prague is a pure delight.

Home of the Hapsburgs, Vienna's majestic past does not outshine its thriving contemporary culture. To visit the Hofburg in the morning and then a very short walk to the MuseumsQuartier, to view some of the most contemporary and ambitious art in Europe, the mixture of Vienna's imperial past with the modern world makes this city a fantastic opportunity to visit an old-world city in its prime.
