Vacation Overview

This wonderful vacation explores the most popular part of Germany—Bavaria! Start and end in Munich. Enjoy guided sightseeing in most cities, featuring the highlights and visits to the most interesting sites, like the Document Snuff Factory in Regensburg to hear about traditional “tobacco-snuffing,” and fascinating Thurn und Taxis Palace, followed by a lunch at the Historic Sausage Kitchen to taste a “medieval hot dog.” A full day in Nuremberg allows the possibility for an excursion to picturesque Bamberg, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where you can try “smoked beer,” and to visit St. Sebald Church and Wagner’s Bayreuth. Other highlights are visits to the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart, the Zeppelin Museum in Friedrichshafen, and to King Ludwig’s impressive Neuschwanstein Castle, including a visit to the Museum of the Bavarian Kings and a horse-drawn carriage ride. Also stay one night in the Black Forest, and enjoy a farewell dinner at one of Munich’s lively local restaurants.

"Munich, Germany

"Munich, Germany's Secret Capital"


"Munich is the only German metropolis that seems to have everything – wealth, beauty, prominence, fame. Some even call it Germany’s “secret capital.” Unlike Berlin, which some dub “architecturally challenged,” Munich bursts with historical buildings reconstructed after the devastation of World War II. Its grand Residenz, the former home of Bavarian kings, dominates the city center, which also boasts the flamboyant, gilded Cuvillié Theater. Nearby, the neo-gothic Neues Rathaus gives a medieval touch to the Marienplatz, the heart of Munich. "

Oberammergau

Oberammergau


"Promises to God are notoriously hard to keep. The townspeople of Oberammergau in the Bavarian Alps have not only kept their renaissance promise, they’ve turned it into euros and cents. Flashback to 1633. Oberammergau was a stop on the market road between Augsburg and Venice. When the plague hit, the town elders swore to heaven: Protect us and we’ll do a play about Jesus’ crucifixion every ten years. The first began in 1634. Today the village of Oberammergau lives because of theater. Half of the 5,400 residents break a leg in the Passionsspiel, performed in years ending in zero from May to October."

Neuschwanstein Castle

Neuschwanstein Castle


"As it rises from its alpine backdrop, Neuschwanstein Castle near Füssen has all the drama of a well-planned stage scene. And so it is. The late 19th century dream castle joins various architectural styles with the eccentric fancy of Ludwig II, Bavaria’s most peculiar sovereign. From afar he adored the anorexic Austrian Empress Elisabeth, he wrote about suicide in his diaries and he bankrolled the composer Richard Wagner. He also loved building castles. In the process, he nearly bankrupted his government. Today, he’s the equivalent of a pop star in Bavaria for giving Germany its most popular tourist attraction."
