Rhine-Main Discovery & Munich
FEATURED EXCURSIONS: Choice of fairytale Bavaria OR Hitler’s alpine lair OR Jewish Heritage visit to Dachau Concentration Camp
Not far from Munich, in the Bavarian Alps region, lie historically significant yet vastly contrasting sites. Choose how you wish to experience this region. Wishing to relive fairytales? You’ll want to visit “Mad” King Ludwig’s picture-book Castle Neuschwanstein. WWll history buffs may prefer to visit Hitler’s alpine lair, Eagle’s Nest, the historic survivor of the Third Reich where Hitler, Eva Braun and Himmler entertained foreign diplomats. Another historic and haunting reminder of Hitler and the atrocities of the Third Reich is the Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial, which you have the choice to visit. Note: Eagle’s Nest is only available on May–October departure dates.
Munich, transfer to Nuremberg FEATURED EXCURSIONS: Choice of Munich city tour with lunch at Hofbräuhaus
Cosmopolitan Munich combines a special mix of tradition and modernity. Experience both facets with a panoramic tour. Amble through one of the most beautiful squares in Germany, Marienplatz, and home to the Old and New Town Halls. In the Art Quarter, you’ll find how the Munich lifestyle blends culture with life’s finer things, such as a visit to BMW World, followed by lunch at Hofbräuhaus.
Erlangen (Nuremberg), Bamberg FEATURED EXCURSIONS: Nuremberg city tour and Bamberg walking discovery tour
