German Fairytales and More

During this 11-day journey, we will venture through Germany from top to bottom, from Berlin all the way to Munich, stopping in small towns and villages, famous for culture, traditions and literary history. We'll enjoy a guided city tour of Berlin, an optional tour of Sanssoucci Palace and Gardens in Potsdam, and a visit to Bergen-Belsen – the concentration camp where Anne Frank spent her final days. Then we make our way to the famous Fairy-tale Route, made famous by the Brothers Grimm. We’ll stop in Bremen, Hamelin, Trendelberg, Sababurg and Kassel – all towns where the Grimm Brother’s either lived, studied, wrote and based their famous stories. We’ll see Rapunzel’s Tower, Sleepy Beauty’s Castle, Lowenburg Castle and Grimm World Center and exhibition. We continue on to the medieval city of Rothenberg, perhaps the most famous town of Germany’s Romantic Road. Enjoy free time to explore this beautiful town, take in some wine tasting and join the Night Watchman’s Tour. Then, we make our way to Neuschwanstein Castle – the famous castle that inspired Walt Disney's Cinderella’s Castle. Before we arrive in Munich, we’ll stop in Oberammergau, where the Passion Play is held every 10 years (next up in 2020). We end our tour in Munich, but we do have an optional extension available to stay for a guided tour of Munich and to enjoy the festivities of Oktoberfest!
