Germany is a country filled with spectacular scenery, medieval towns, fairytale castles, a fascinating history, and world-class beer. On this Germany tour, see Germany's highlights and visit its most famous cities, as well as medieval towns and scenic areas. Your vacation begins and ends in Frankfurt with overnights in Cologne Berlin, Dresden, Nuremberg, Munich, and the Black Forest. Visit the must-see attractions in each city, including the famous gothic cathedral in Cologne, with its twin-steeple towers, the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church in Berlin, badly damaged during the war and today a symbol of reconciliation, and the Zwinger Palace Courtyard in Dresden. Enjoy traveling first-class on the high-speed ICE train to the capital, Berlin.

Magnificent scenery awaits you on this Germany vacation. Enjoy a cruise along the most scenic section of the Rhine River, with castle-crested hills, terraced vineyards, and traditional wine towns. Take in views the Romantic Road’s charming villages and countryside before stopping for a walking tour in Rothenburg, a walled town that has retained its medieval character. Visit King Ludwig II's Neuschwanstein Castle, nestled high in the Alps. Drive on the panoramic German Alpine Road to beautiful Lake Constance, Europe's largest freshwater reservoir, and to the charming island of Lindau. Finally, arrive in Germany's lush Black Forest region, to learn about the art of woodcarving and taste the traditional Black Forest Cake—a special experience included by Globus.

A tour to Germany would not be complete without sampling the local cuisine and beer. That's why Globus has arranged a beer at a famous brewery in Cologne, founded over 100 years ago. Bratwurst (sausage) has been a tradition in Nuremberg for many centuries, and Globus has organized a dinner at a local Nuremberg restaurant to taste the traditional Nürnberger Bratwürste.

From the beautiful scenery and exciting cities to the traditional food and wonderful beer, this Germany tour has it all!
