13 Day Tour from Warsaw to Munich

2017 Tour Details View 2016 Tour Details »

This World War II tour in Poland and East Germany is the perfect vacation for those who are interested in World War II. Your tour starts in Warsaw and ends in Munich. Along the way, you’ll visit cities, concentration camps, and places important during World War II—with overnights in Warsaw, Krakow, Wroclaw, Dresden, Berlin, Weimar, Nuremberg, and Munich.

Throughout this tour, you’ll visit some of the concentration camps used during World War II. Visit the most famous, Auschwitz and Birkenau, where you’ll see chilling reminders of the Holocaust. You'll visit the Buchenwald concentration camp near Weimar. Constructed in 1937, it was one of the largest concentration camps. You'll also visit the site of the former Dachau concentration camp, which started out as a work camp for German dissidents.

In Krakow, you'll visit the Oskar Schindler Factory, a museum devoted to the wartime experiences in Krakow and made famous in the movie Schindler's List. You'll visit the Memorium Nuremberg Trials and Courtroom 600 (if available), where you’ll learn about the background and repercussions of the trials at the original location where they were held. You'll also visit the Documentation Center and Zeppelin Field, where thousands of people gathered for Nazi rallies. These experiences are some of the special inclusions Globus offers to ensure your vacation is unique.

World War II brought devastation to the cities that were bombed, and you'll visit some of those cities. In Dresden, enjoy a guided walking tour of this city that was badly damaged by Allied bombing in February 1945 and has since been restored. In Berlin, visit the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church, a symbol of reconciliation.

All of this and much more are included in this fabulous World War II tour in Poland and East Germany.

WERNER HARTLIEB

Years of Experience: 22

I enjoy sharing insights about the always-changing countries of Central Europe. What I like just as much, if not more, is the camaraderie that guests form. With each tour, I am astonished by this. A group of strangers at the start, they get acquainted with each other in a pleasant way and sometimes take home friendships for life. I think it is great this takes place while exploring new regions and discovering new cultures.
