Vienna 

Follow in the footsteps of Gustav Klimt and Sigmund Freud

Visit great museums

Discover the modern architecture and design that transformed Europe and still shapes our cities today

 

Munich 

Explore how a cultural capital of Europe could give rise to avant-garde art as well as the Nazi party

Learn about courageous students who resisted fascism

Berlin 

As Germany continues to heal from decades of war and division, Berlin is emerging as the capital of the New Europe, where arts and culture thrive, and political decisions affecting the world are debated. Spend about 2 weeks exploring this extraordinary city!
