From Vienna to Budapest

Before it dissolved after World War I, the Austro-Hungarian Empire represented a golden age for both Hungarians and Austrians, the culmination of 300 years of learning how to live together, despite differences of language and culture. On this trip, we unite the empire once again—at least symbolically. The storied waterways of the Danube River provide a link between two fascinating, unique cultures, and two of Europe's most resplendent cities. Culminating with a night in Budapest at one of Europe’s most magnificent city palace hotels, this trip will leave you feeling anything but blue (pardon the pun).

Look no further - B&R assembled a private trip for 18 of us from Prague to Vienna and they nailed it. Nice job.

Day 1:

Start your first ride in the village of Potzneusiedl. Cycle along the Leitha River through the villages of Gattendorf, Zurndorf and Weiden am See. Tonight, dinner will be at a restaurant included in the World's Top 100 list, a definite trip highlight!

Day 2:

Pedal inland through the villages surrounding Eisenstadt. Stop for lunch at a family-run Heuriger, a seasonal restaurant linked to a winery. This evening head into nearby Eisenstadt for a guided visit to its ornate Esterhazy Palace.

Day 3:

Ride back to the shores of Lake Neusiedl and the town of Rust for a private cruise. More flat riding on tree-lined roads awaits! We'll enjoy a casual lunch in the castle courtyard and then cycle across the border into Hungary and then Slovakia.

Day 4:

Take a loop ride around Chateaux Amade through tiny villages and farms. Enjoy a buffet lunch back at the hotel and either spend the afternoon on another ride or relaxing at the hotel, taking advantage of all the Chateau has to offer!

Day 5:

Ride from the riverside hamlet of Szob along a stretch of uninterrupted bike path hugging the Danube’s left bank. Enjoy a private cruise on the Danube into Budapest and our splendid hotel before venturing out into the city for a dinner finale.

Day 6:

After a breakfast worthy of the hotel’s grandeur, you will depart at your leisure to head home or explore more of this vibrant city!

Taubenkobel, Schuetzen Am Gebirge

Famed most for its superb restaurant, the classy hotel side of Taubenkobel is often overlooked. Showing his versatility, it was Chef Walter Eselböck himself who stepped out of the kitchen to design the rooms, matching his culinary prowess with decorative excellence in the creation of this Relais & Chateaux property.

Chateau Amade, Vrakun

Built as the summer retreat of the Amade family. After the family lost their infl uence, it got run down and then it was rebuilt by a Jewish businessman in the beginning of the 20th century. The building fortunately survived both world wars and served as a hospital and then as a school. It was given back into private hands 15 years ago, when the works started to turn it into a five star hotel.

Four Seasons Gresham Palace, Budapest

A bucket-list property if ever there was one, the Gresham Palace ranks among the most grandiose and awe-inspiring hotels in Europe. Recently named the #1 hotel in all Europe by T+L readers, it truly has to be seen to be appreciated
