Congregational Tour, August 2015: Our Danube adventures will begin August 12 aboard AMA Waterways’ AmaSerena in Budapest. We’ll continue on to historic Bratislava, spend one and a half days in fascinating Vienna, experience the wine-growing region of the Wachau Valley (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), explore the Austrian Lake district, visit 2,000 year-old cobblestoned cities, celebrate Oktoberfest-style with locals and disembark in medieval Vilshofen on August 19. From there, we will travel to Prague by way of historic Regensburg. Travelers may choose to extend their pre and post- cruise stays in Prague and/or Budapest for 1,2, or 3 days. Hotels in both cities are top-rated and well located, featuring discounted rates and additional amenities. Each day of our trip includes a choice of wonderful excursions including many special Jewish heritage sites, walking tours, guided bike touring, wine tasting, and more – all included without additional charge. We expect to have our own transportation exclusively for TEBH travelers. You can read the full packet here.
