The Historic Borderlands tour offers an opportunity to explore three of Central Europe’s most fascinating cities and the fates of the empires they have represented. Join Dr. Julia Ault, your very own University of Utah German history expert, and travel through space and history. We’ll see how the different states that have ruled this region have ebbed and flowed with time. From grand empires to divided cities, we’ve got a lot to learn!

The journey first takes you to one of Europe’s hippest capitals, Berlin. Known for its crucial role in modern German history, Berlin never disappoints! From the rise of the German Empire to the world wars to its symbolism during the Cold War, and finally, its magnificent transformation after the fall of the Berlin Wall, the city reflects the twists and turns of Germany’s complicated past. As we cross states and ancient Germanic lands, we will discover Dresden, Germany’s Florence on the Elbe River. Learn how not even the fire-bombing of WWII could erase its elegance and beauty. From there, we venture on to Sudetenland, Bohemia, or what is today the Czech Republic, by discovering Prague, a medieval treasure with as much charm as Paris. After staying at enchanted Cesky Krumlov, we once again cross ancient borders to travel through Austria, along the Danube River, discovering Austrian wine and once more slipping into the past, learning from local guides, eating Sacher Torte, and waltzing through Vienna for three days straight.

Tour Highlights Include:

  • A twelve-day journey across ancient lands, visiting the “holy trinity” of Central Europe’s capitals: Berlin, Prague, and Vienna.
  • Two over-night stays in Dresden and Cesky Krumlov are also included as don’t-miss experiences of this custom tour into the history of those borderlands.
  • Twenty meals, including eight hand-picked culinary highlights for lunch or dinner and additional tastings and experiences such as Kaffe und Kuchen time wine tastings, brewery visits, monastery, castle, and church excursions.
  • Local guides at all major sites, including their fees and tips.
  • All scheduled entrance fees and learning/fun-related experiences, including world-class museums and art venues.
  • All ground transportation, a full-sized, luxury-liner bus for travel days, as well as tips for the driver.
  • Mini lectures, guided tours, and constant personal contact with Dr. Julia Ault, bringing everything we see to life, to bind knowledge gained, and to digest the wealth of information as we go.
  • Plenty of free-time with suggestions on what to do to supplement and customize your experience in some of the most amazing places in Europe.
