When you think of a vacation to Germany, what comes to mind? Perhaps it’s visiting fairy-tale castles and medieval towns. Perhaps it’s seeing the Bavarian Alps and beautiful countryside. Perhaps it’s savoring German food and beer. If so, all of this and more is included on this marvelous Germany tour from Berlin to Munich.

Sightseeing in the main cities includes the must-see sights. Among the many attractions in Berlin, you’ll visit Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church, badly damaged during the war and today a symbol of reconciliation. During your walking tour in Dresden, visit the courtyard of Zwinger Palace, one of Germany’s best-known baroque buildings. In Munich, visit the lively Marienplatz with its Old and New Town Halls. Here, observe the famous Glockenspiel, which re-creates a 16th-century wedding. You’ll also visit Weimar, where you’ll enjoy a pleasant orientation walk through the town to its pretty market square, and in Oberammergau, see the theatre where the Passion Play is held every ten years.

Highlights of this Germany tour are a drive along the Romantic Road past small villages to visit Neuschwanstein Castle, the fairy-tale castle of King Ludwig II nestled in the beautiful Bavarian Alps. Another unique experience Globus has included on this Germany tour is an overnight in medieval Rothenburg with its ramparts and towers, cobblestone lanes, and 16th-century houses. Of course, no vacation to Germany is complete without experiencing a lively Biergarten, and Globus has included a farewell dinner at one in Munich.

Throughout this Germany tour, you’ll be accompanied by a Tour Director who knows the ins and outs of Germany—its history, secrets, culture, and language. So all you have to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy this fantastic Germany tour!
