This is a trip for a refined type of traveller, not content on the same tired view. There'll be no tired icons on the Berlin to Prague, and we won't be queuing in lines. We'll be too busy sampling Czech craft beer & soaking up Krakow's salt mines.
Ready and raring for a banquet of cultural travel, we’ll round up in Germany’s chic capital. With more museums than rainy days per year, Berlin is a place worth knowing about. We’ll introduce its inner workings with an Alternative Berlin Tour, uncovering its many facets & elusive underground.
Today we can cruise Berlin the vintage way, taking a tour in the official cars of the DDR. When hunger strikes the carnivores could spend some time differentiating bockwurst from kinderwurst from fleischwurst. Meanwhile the more vegan inclined could sample a jackfruit burger or cashew bolognese at the solar powered organic hotel of Amaranth.
If yesterday’s independent food roamings whet the appetite for something more substantial, then today offer of a progressive food tour should provide amble satisfaction. Later you could let kilos settle by sipping tea in a palace at the Tajik Tearoom, or by walking the abandoned building of Museumswohnung museum where you can see remnants of the communist era.
This morning we leave our beloved German culture hub, trading it in for the rapidly evolving capital of the Czech Republic. Before we take a look at progressive Prague & modern day Czech life, we’ll cast minds back to some of Europes darkest days with a stop at Terezin Concentration Camp.
With our sombre stop behind us we’ll journey forwards arriving in the famously pretty city of Prague. With fairy-tale streets meeting hipster hangouts and graffiti, it’s not hard to understand the current allure of this beguiling city.
The history of Czech beer supposedly dates back to the year 993, when brewing took place in a monastery. With such cultural significance & historical roots, it seems only manners to do some Czech beer tasting. We will also have the option to take on the city by pushbike, allowing us to navigate narrow alleys & quaint corners otherwise forgotten.
Today we can take a trip to the UNESCO town of Kutna Hora, where gothic architecture, human bone chandeliers, & a silver mining history can be found. Staying city side, you could catch the tram to outer neighbourhoods like Vršovice, where you’ll realise Prague’s panache is best found beyond the Old Town. Here you’ll see the city’s transformation from seemingly abandoned to abounding in style, with great coffee haunts & streets lined with communal pianos.
If you picked up any Czech we’ll be saying our ‘ahoj’ this morning, as our time in Prague concludes. With a newfound appreciation for two of Europe's best spots, we’ll say goodbye & make plans for our next worldly ventures.
