Budapest, Hungary

You might consider the city of Budapest, divided by the Danube River into two distinctive cities--Buda and Pest--to be essentially one large World Heritage Site.
Koller Gallery and Hospital in the Rock will appeal to museum buffs. Halaszbastya and St. Stephen's Basilica (Szent Istvan Bazilika) will appeal to history buffs. And it doesn't end there: steep yourself in history at Liberty Statue, test the waters at a local thermal spa, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Matthias Church, and make a trip to Vaci Street.

To see where to stay, maps, reviews, and tourist information, read Budapest trip itinerary planner .

Toronto, Canada to Budapest is an approximately 13-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and train; or do a combination of flight and shuttle. You'll lose 6 hours traveling from Toronto to Budapest due to the time zone difference. When traveling from Toronto in April, plan for somewhat warmer days and about the same nights in Budapest: temperatures range from 20°C by day to 5°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 27th (Mon) early enough to catch the train to Vienna.

Alpbach is a town in western Austria in the state of Tyrol.HistoryThe earliest written record of the name Alpbach comes from 1150, although human settlement is known to have begun there before and around the year 1000, and a bronze axe found at Steinberger Joch in 1860 suggests that the route was already in use in the Hallstatt period.Christianity was first brought to the region in the 7th and 8th centuries by Irish and Scottish monks, and the patron saint of the parish church is in fact St. Start off your visit on the 2nd (Sat): stop by Kisslinger Kristall-Glas, look for all kinds of wild species at Hinterriss-Eng, and then look for all kinds of wild species at Naturschutzgebiet Grosser Ahornboden. On the 3rd (Sun), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: identify plant and animal life at Filzalmsee and then hike along Kundler Klamm.

For where to stay, photos, more things to do, and more tourist information, go to the Alpbach day trip site .
