Day 3

Leaving Prague after breakfast a short journey on a regional service will bring you to Plzen for a 2-night stay. The town is the capital of West Bohemia and home to the Škoda Engineering group as well as the famous Pilsner brewery. It may not be a well-known fact that Škoda build locomotives as well as cars. Free afternoon to explore the attractive old town.

By rail after breakfast for the journey over the border into Bavaria. Our destination today is Nuremberg. For many centuries the city was where most German kings resided but in recent years it has become synonymous with the war crimes tribunals held after WWII. Stay 2 nights in Nuremberg.
