Itinerary map of German Highlights 2019 - 12 days from Frankfurt to Frankfurt

Time to rest or to start exploring the bustling metropolis on the Main River. At 6 pm, meet your Tour Director and traveling companions and leave the hotel for a welcome dinner at a local restaurant
Includes meal(s): Dinner

Day 2 FRANKFURT–COLOGNE.

A special treat at the very start of your journey through Germany is a romantic RHINE CRUISE along the most scenic section of the Rhine River. See castle-crested hills, terraced vineyards, pretty wine towns, and the Lorelei rock. Disembark and drive to Cologne to visit the monumental gothic CATHEDRAL. Its twin 515-foot towers, five naves, splendid stained-glass windows, and the shrine of the Three Holy Kings are eloquent testimony to medieval engineering and craftsmanship. Afterwards, join the locals for [LF] a beer at the Cölner Hofbräu Früh, one of Cologne’s famous breweries
Includes meal(s): Breakfast, Dinner

Day 3 COLOGNE–BERLIN.

Ride the ICE TRAIN to Berlin, capital of reunited Germany, where sightseeing with a Local Guide in the once-divided metropolis includes the fabulous boulevard Unter den Linden with its historical building. See the Berlin Cathedral and State Opera House, Museum Island, a picture stop at monumental Brandenburg Gate, the restored Reichstag, the 210-foot Victory Column in the vast Tiergarten Park, Charlottenburg Palace and the elegant Ku-Damm. Visit the KAISER WILHELM MEMORIAL CHURCH with its bomb-damaged bell-tower, stop for pictures at the Holocaust Memorial, and pass the former Allied Checkpoint Charlie

Day 4 AT LEISURE IN BERLIN.

Day 5 BERLIN–DRESDEN.

Arrive in Dresden, former capital of Saxony. Badly damaged by Allied bombing in February 1945, the city has since been restored to its baroque splendor. During your orientation, see the Zwinger Palace COURTYARD to admire its impressive architecture; the magnificent baroque Semper Opera, originally built in 1841, once destroyed by fire, then destroyed by bombing, and finally restored in 1985; and the newly rebuilt Frauenkirche
Includes meal(s): Breakfast

Day 6 DRESDEN–BAYREUTH–NUREMBERG.

Discover Bayreuth, of festival fame. Richard Wagner came to Bayreuth in 1871 and was not satisfied with the existing 18th-century theater, the Markgräfliches Opernhaus, so he had a new one built. Today, the Festival Hall is used exclusively for the Bayreuth Festival, and only works by Wagner are performed there. Continue to Nuremberg, the town of children’s toys and gingerbread. Admire the impressive medieval ramparts and walk through the pedestrian area of the charming Old Town. See St. Sebald Church, painstakingly reconstructed as a monument to peace from the rubble of near-total wartime destruction, and admire the Schöner Brunnen, a 14th-century fountain dedicated to the Holy Roman Empire. It is said that it brings good luck to spin the two brass rings. Then, have [LF] dinner at Bratwurst Röslein restaurant to taste the traditional Nürnberger Bratwürste
Includes meal(s): Breakfast, Dinner

Day 7 NUREMBERG–ROTHENBURG–MUNICH.

Prepare for Rothenburg—a picturesque, medieval walled town with ramparts and towers at the Romantic Road. Step back in time and follow your Tour Director for a walk to the main square with the Town Hall. Wander through the cobble-stone streets and shop for Christmas ornaments, for which the town is famous, before continuing to the Bavarian capital, Munich. Tonight, you may wish to join an optional dinner outing. (B)

Germany’s “Secret Capital” comes alive during your guided sightseeing: admire the Olympic Stadium, built for the 1972 Olympics; the 1,000-foot-high Olympic Tower; and Königsplatz, used for Nazi rallies during World War II. Drive along the Ludwigstrasse, and see the Bavarian Arch of Triumph and Field Marshall Hall, a monumental loggia on the Odeonsplatz. Visit lively MARIENPLATZ with the Old and the New Town Halls and the gothic Frauenkirche. In the late afternoon, drive to the romantic Passion Play town of Oberammergau, where you will stay for the next two nights
