Detailed Itinerary

You will be met and transferred to your hotel. There’s time
to relax before tonight’s welcome reception with your
tour director and fellow travelers (WR)

During this guided city tour, we see the landmarks of
Germany’s capital: the Brandenburg Gate, the
Reichstag, the Victory column, the Palace Bellevue, the
Kaiser-Wilhelm-Memorial Church, Checkpoint Charlie, the
Unter den Linden Boulevard, the Berliner Dom and some
remains of the Berlin wall. We end our sightseeing with a
one- hour Cruise on the River Spree. The afternoon and
evening is free to enjoy your own activities. (B)
Optional tour: Visit of Pergamon Museum

The former royal city of Potsdam, a UNESCO World
Heritage Site, with its extraordinary collection of palaces
and parks, lies just a stone’s throw from the center of
Berlin. The Rococo palace of Sanssouci became the
favorite refuge of Prussia's greatest king, Frederick II. The
french poet Voltaire was a frequent guest amongst many
other luminaries and philosophers. Our excursion of
Sanssouci Palace includes a stroll through the
magnificent gardens, the Dutch quarter and the Russian
colony. Afterward, we return to Berlin where the
remainder of the day is at leisure. (B)
Optional tour: Berlin beer tour

After breakfast, we motor to Dresden, the capital of the
Free State of Saxony. Dresden has a mild climate, and
because of its baroque architecture the city is also called
‘Florence on the Elbe’. We see the Semper Opera House,
the baroque Zwinger (palace), and the restored
Frauenkirche. After our visit, we continue to Nuremberg,
where, between 1945 and 1946, a series of World War II
military tribunals were held. The evening is free. (B)

We continue our journey to Regensburg, "Germany's bestpreserved medieval city" and a regional trading center
since the 9th century. After a short visit, we travel to the
Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site. It was here,
on the grounds of an abandoned munitions factory, that
the first German concentration camp, initially for for
political prisoners, opened in 1933. Later in the afternoon,
we arrive in Munich where the rest of the day is at leisure.
(B)

A Morning guided tour of the Bavarian capital includes
Nymphenburg Castle and the Olympic Grounds. After
the tour, we visit the famous Hofbrauhaus and enjoy a
traditional lunch. The afternoon is at leisure to explore this
great city. (B, L)
Optional tour: Munich Food Tour

We explore more of the Freestate of Bavaria with a visit
to Neuschwanstein Castle, commissioned by Ludwig II of
Bavaria as a retreat for and in honour of Richard Wagner.
It was completed in 1882. Its Romanesque beauty and
fairytale setting attracts a great many visitors from around the world. Its architecture served as inspiration for
Disneyland's Sleeping Beauty Castle. After our visit to
Neuschwanstein, we continue to the Village of
Oberammergau, famous for its once-a-decade Passion
Play and for its wood-carving craftsmen. Here, we
visit Pilatushaus and observe a wood-carver at work.
Thereafter, we return to Munich. In the evening join your
fellow travelers and your travel director for our farewell
dinner. (B, D)
