More about Austria

Officially known as the Republic of Austria, there's a lot more to discover about this landlocked European country than schnitzel, strudel and the Sound of Music, but that's still part of the fun. Bordered by the Czech Republic, Germany, Slovakia, Hungary, Slovenia, Italy, Switzerland and Liechtenstein, you can understand why Austria is so culturally rich. There are a couple of things you might not know about Austrians, like they are the top recyclers in the world, they love their coffee and enjoy a rich coffee house culture, plus, much like Mexico, they celebrate death and there's even a funeral museum in Vienna. From fine arts to classical music and historic monuments, there's much to experience in Austria!

More about Europe

More about Germany

Germany is one of the most densely populated counties in the world, but it doesn't feel that way thanks to its forested mountains, magnificent rivers and well-planned cities. Berlin is a vibrant capital with a lively art scene and cafe culture. Munich is renowned for its annual Oktoberfest beer festival and Frankfurt is a fascinating blend of historic buildings and modern skyscrapers. Cruising the mighty Danube River you'll experience the charm of regional villages and rich culture of cities like Cologne and Nuremberg. There's so much to discover about this country that has its own strong personality as well as influences from its nine neighbouring countries.

More about Hungary

The landlocked country of Hungary shares its borders with Austria, Croatia, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia and Ukraine. The capital of Budapest is a great city to explore, with its medieval Castle Hill, Fisherman's Bastion and impressive Parliament Building. It's split by the Danube River and many European river cruises either start of end in Budapest. And if you're wondering, Hungarian goulash really is from Hungary. The tasty soup made from beef and vegetables and flavoured with paprika is known locally as Gulyásleves (gulyás is herdsman and leves is soup in Hungarian); because it originates from a dish cooked by the cattlemen of the Great Hungarian Plain.

More about Netherlands

Think of the Netherlands and immediately tulips, windmills and canal cruises in Amsterdam spring to mind. All this is true, and even more delightful in real life! The capital of Amsterdam is home to the impressive Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum. It's a great city to explore by bike, thanks to the extensive bike paths and lack of hills, and for a truly local experience you can try herring from a food cart vendor, but you might want to wash it down with a beer at a historic brewery. Also, if you're wondering whether you should call it 'the Netherlands' or 'Holland', the Netherlands covers the country's 12 provinces, and Holland is an area that consists of two provinces. In January 2020 the Dutch government officially dropped the nickname ‘Holland’ and now refers to itself as The Netherlands.
