Imperial Tour 2008

    

Austria, Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary

    

  These photos are from a new tour which European Castles Tours was introducing in 2008 – Imperial Castles Tour: Castles of Germany, Austria, Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary.

I was told to expect "the legacies of the centuries when European imperial emperors and countries competed to build the largest, most ornate, and most expensive castles and palaces."  But I was still amazed.

North Americans think of castles as big buildings.  Prague Castle is a small city all by itself.  Schönbrunn Palace in Vienna is 400 acres of magic.  Beautiful towns and exquisite castles appeared throughout this tour.

International travel for this tour was via Munich.  The Munich sights, including the Residenz, are included in the Southern Germany section of Travel-Pix.  Slovakia and Hungary are no longer included in these Imperial tours.
