Two Feet Tour

Millions of tourists flock to Prague every year but few step off the beaten track to discover the rich history and beautiful countryside of the Czech-German border, which has inspired some of the world's great Romantic artists, writers and musicians.

The Wayfarers pick up the trail from these 19th century visitors with the new Prague to Dresden Walk, which offers a fascinating insight into truly unspoilt countryside and post-Communist village life, in the heart of Central Europe. The Czech Republic is an area rich in political and social history. Starting the walk in Prague and finishing in Dresden highlights the relationship between the old states of Saxony and Bohemia and allows guests to spend longer exploring their capitals' architecture and artistic heritage. Prague's architectural beauty is world-renowned and Dresden, once called 'Venice on the Elbe' claims outstanding art collections, opera and philharmonic orchestra.

Highlights of the Prague to Dresden walk include unspoilt, traditional villages of timber-framed houses, Prebischtor, the longest natural stone bridge in Europe and gorges, passable only by boat, skippered by a local boatman, the stunning sandstone rocks and towers of Czech and German "Switzerland", which inspired Romantics including Goethe, Hans Christian Andersen, C.D. Friedrich and Wagner, and a cruise along the River Elbe into Dresden, the baroque heart of Saxony (pictured).

Departure dates are June 15-22, 2013 and September 14-21, 2013 with the seven night journey starting from US$4,295 per person, twin share.
