German-Czech Christmas Markets
Day 1 Arrival to Karlovy Vary
You are heading for the Bohemian Spa Triangle in the Czech Republic. Your destination is Karlovy Vary, which is not only the largest, but also the most famous spa and bathing resort in the country. As early as the Middle Ages, King Charles IV gave his name to the beautiful city as its founder. Since then, the warm springs of the place were used for baths, and later also for drinking cures. Karlovy Vary still enjoys great popularity among many visitors and spa guests.
You will stay in the 4 star hotel Spa Resort Sanssouci, all rooms with bath/shower WC, telephone, desk, radio, minibar and safe. Dinner at the hotel
2nd day full day tour Karlovy Vary and Annaberg-Buchholz
Today we invite you to visit two beautiful Christmas markets. First, stroll in the fashionable spa town of Karlovy Vary past the stalls and booths, as well as around the Christmas tree in Smetana Park. Afterwards, travel to the German side to Annaberg-Buchholz.

Day 3 Discover Pilsen with city tour
After a hearty breakfast, your guide may already be waiting to take you on a discovery tour of picturesque Pilsen. You will take a look at the city's sights, most of which are located in the historic city center. The city has a number of special monuments in store for you: for example, the Gothic St. Bartholomew's Cathedral has the highest church tower in the country. The world's third largest synagogue is also located in Pilsen. When the city was founded in the 13th century, Pilsen's main square (Republic Square) was one of the largest squares in Europe. Would you have expected this in Pilsen? Of course, a visit to the Christmas market is also on your program. Here the scents of gingerbread, cookies and mulled wine are in the air.
