German Fairytales and More…

During this 11-day journey, we will venture through Germany from Berlin all the way to Munich, stopping in small towns and villages, famous for culture, traditions and literary history.  We'll enjoy a guided city tour of Berlin, an optional tour of Sanssoucci Palace and Gardens in Potsdam, and a visit to Bergen-Belsen – the concentration camp where Anne Frank spent her final days.  Then we make our way to the famous Fairy-tale Route, made famous by the Brothers Grimm.  We’ll stop in Bremen, Hamelin, Trendelberg, Sababurg and Kassel – all towns where the Grimm Brother’s either lived, studied, wrote and based their famous stories.  We’ll see Rapunzel’s Tower, Sleepy Beauty’s Castle, Lowenburg Castle and Grimm World Center and exhibition.  We continue on to the medieval city of Rothenberg, perhaps the most famous town of Germany’s Romantic Road.  Enjoy free time to explore this beautiful town, take in some wine tasting and join the Night Watchman’s Tour.  Then, we make our way to Neuschwanstein Castle – the famous castle that inspired Walt Disney's Cinderella’s Castle.  Before we arrive in Munich, we’ll stop in Oberammergau, where the Passion Play is held every 10 years (next up in 2020).  We end our tour in Munich, but we do have an optional extension available to stay for a guided tour of Munich and to enjoy the festivities of Oktoberfest!

Alpine Explorer & Glacier Express Train with Oberammergau Passion Play

Preparations are already underway for the next Passion Play in the tiny Bavarian hamlet of Oberammergau. The shows in 2020 may seem distant but the excitement is already building for the next production. Demand for tickets is high and space on tours will be limited. During this 12-day journey, we will venture through Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Italy, and most importantly, witness a performance of the Oberammergau Passion Play.  Spend two nights in Stresa, located on the banks of Lake Maggiore, enjoy a wine and cheese pairing at an Italian family farm, soak up the mountain air with two nights in Zermatt with views of the Matterhorn, experience the most legendary of Alpine railway journeys on the Glacier Express, explore Salzburg's historic and charming Old Town, delight in dinner and a Mozart concert at the 1,200 year old St Peter's restaurant, visit Linderhof Palace and Neuschwanstein Castle.
