Bavarian Highlights (ZE)

9 Day Tour from Munich to Munich

2017 Tour Details View 2016 Tour Details »

Lederhosen, Oktoberfest, pretzels, a beautiful Alpine backdrop, excellent beer, storybook castles, and medieval towns…this is Bavaria and on this Germany tour, you’ll experience Bavaria's highlights. You’ll overnight in Munich, Regensburg, Nuremberg, the Black Forest, and the Oberammergau area, and you’ll visit many medieval towns along the way.

Sightseeing throughout the tour features the must-see attractions. In Munich, visit Marienplatz with its Old and New Town Halls and its famous glockenspiel, re-creating a royal wedding from the 16th century. History buffs are sure to be delighted in Regensburg, where your sightseeing features the 12th-century Stone Bridge, the oldest preserved bridge of its kind in Germany; the Porta Pretoria, gates to an ancient Roman fort built in the 2nd century; and St. Peter's Cathedral, begun in the 13th century. In Nuremberg, admire the impressive medieval ramparts as you walk through the pedestrian area of the charming Old Town.

Additionally, on this Germany tour, Globus has included special experiences to help you get a feel for Bavaria and to make your vacation unique. Among the many included features, you’ll enjoy a light lunch at the Historic Sausage Kitchen in Regensburg, Germany's oldest restaurant. Here—where the locals congregate—feel the vibrant atmosphere and take in the remarkable views along the river as you enjoy a "medieval hot dog." In medieval Bamberg, the city with the largest historical center in Germany and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, taste "smoked beer," a type of beer with a distinctive smoke flavor. Near Oberammergau, you'll visit Neuschwanstein Castle, the fairytale castle of King Ludwig II nestled in the Bavarian Alps.

These are just a few of the many highlights on this Bavarian Highlights tour. Between the historical sights, fascinating towns, unique included experiences, and beautiful scenery as a backdrop, this is a vacation of a lifetime!
