Experiencing Austria and the Czech Republic by bike – where you can hear, see, and feel the land through its marvelous scenery and villages – I felt like I got a true flavor for both.

A few more reasons why you've gotta go…

  • 1. The music: Enjoy a classical concert in one of Prague or Vienna's many atmospheric venues, which include ancient churches, opulent concert halls, historic buildings, and outdoor theatres.
  • 2. The Frankfurters: Otherwise known in the US and Germany as Wiener (German for "Viennese"), Vienna offers a wide variety of tasty Frankfurters such as Burenwurst or Käsekrainer.
  • 3. The Fountain of Sampson: A big and beautiful 18th-century fountain located in the center of one of the largest squares in Europe, the Fountain of Sampson once served as Ceske Budejovice's main water supply.
  • 4. The “Pivo”: The most famous Czech drink is actually beer, or pivo. A half-liter glass is often cheaper than a soft drink or cup of coffee.
