Let RTT introduce you to three glorious cities you will fall in love with instantly; Dresden, Golden Prague, and the spa town of Karlovy Vary on this extended 3 overnight Holiday Weekend trip. This adventure will celebrate the different Christmas traditions and showcase the many tasty delights from the festively decorated markets. The great shopping opportunities and bargain prices in all three cities make this trip an ideal way to get a jump on your Holiday shopping list for an array of unique and rare items.
Day 1: An early morning departure from Ramstein takes us to the beautiful and historical town of Dresden. We will join a local guide on a tour through the City by bus and on foot, relishing its baroque beauty, palaces, spired & domed churches and the magnificent “Semper Opera.” The afternoon affords plenty of free time to take in the romantic atmosphere and the festive charm at one of Germany’s oldest Christmas markets. Enjoy some Glühwein (mulled wine) while you taste the famous Dresdner Stollen (German Christmas cake). Wood crafted ornaments from the nearby Ore Mountains, Nutcrackers, Räuchermännchen (Incense Smokers) and Christmas pyramids (carousels with figures of the Christmas story) are just a few of the treasures you’ll find. In the late afternoon we depart for Prague and check in to our 4-star Hotel where dinner will be provided.
Day 2: After breakfast we join our local guide for a walking tour that will bring the city to life, starting at Prague Castle, before descending into the Old Town. The Castle of Prague is the largest preserved fortress from the middle ages in all of Europe. From atop the castle hill we’ll take in the panoramic view of 500 church spires and the silvery winding ribbon of the Vltava (Moldau) River. The rest of the afternoon is yours to explore the city at your own leisure. We recommend visiting the famous Christmas Markets in the center of Prague, lighting up the city in a very festive glow creating a charming winter wonderland. Browse through the many stalls filled with handmade bohemian crafts, seasonal decorations, crystal and culinary delights.
Day 3: After breakfast, we travel to Karlovy Vary, where your time is your own to explore, shop or enjoy the many architectural gems found throughout the city. There are 13 main hot springs throughout the city, all draining into the cold waters of the Tepla river creating huge jets of water and steam, and giving the city a romantic, misty ambiance making the town one of Europe’s premiere wellness destinations. A December-day in Karlovy Vary would not be complete without a stroll through the Christmas Market set up in Smetana Park, right at the end of our walking tour. We invite you to indulge in Karlovy Vary’s finest culinary delights, browse through an assortment of decorated stalls filled with handmade bohemian style decorations of wood & Crystal.
