Hungry for adventure?

Do you want to explore medieval castles, indulge in Black Forest cherry cake, yodel in the Alps, drink beer by the liter, sip wine in a gothic cellar, discover World War II sites, soar into Hitler's Eagle's Nest, relive "The Sound of Music," soak in curative baths founded by Romans, dine at Europe's oldest restaurant, enjoy a bike ride along the Danube River, visit King Ludwig's fairy-tale castle, whoosh down Austria's longest toboggan run, and take a romantic stroll on cobbled lanes under a moonlit sky?

Using the do-it-yourself destination guides on this site, these are just a few of the opportunities you'll have on your next trip to Europe. The guides are written in an easy-to-follow format listing the all-important insider info, pocket-friendly tips, time-saving advice, and suggested itineraries on popular travel destinations and themed tours.
