When in Budapest

Positioned at the crossroads of East and West, Budapest enjoyed a golden age as part of the Habsburg Empire and its rich and varied history makes it a fascinating city. Formed of the two towns Buda and Pest in 1873, the city contains many places of genuine interest, including the Opera House, the Liszt Ferenc Memorial Museum, the Parliament buildings, Fisherman’s Bastion, as well as other museums, parks, and fun activities for groups.

When in Vienna

This gracious city, straddling the Danube, has been at the heart of European affairs since the dawn of time. From Celtic town, Roman settlement to Imperial capital, it has been home to countless composers; Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms, Mahler and Bruckner all lived and worked here. Today Vienna is full of charm, beauty and interest. The old city ‘Innere Stadt’, surrounded by the elegant ‘Ringstrasse’, is relatively compact and easily explored on foot. St Stephen’s cathedral, at its heart, dominates the skyline.

Where to stay

We work with a variety of large 3-star hotels and can base groups centrally or on the outskirts, yet still remaining close to good transport links.
