Overview of our upcoming hosted group tour in August 2020.
Welcome to Germany! Munich is the first stop on our 9 day Munich to Munich tour. Like much of Europe, Munich is a historical city with a lot of Roman influence. Fun Facts; learning 3 languages is expected, legal drinking age is 16, University is free, a typical graduation gift is a high end bicycle not a car! While visiting Munich take some time to enjoy Marien Platz (Mary’s Square) and the beautiful city hall. An optional tour to do would be the Dachau tour, Germany’s 1st concentration camp.
Next stop is Regensburg. This is the “best preserved medieval city in Germany”. St. Peter’s Cathedral is a must visit as well as a stop for lunch at the historic Sausage Kitchen located next to the Stone Bridge.
We are then onto Nuremberg, with a stop at the Thurn & Taxis Palace, this is owned by a family that started the postal services in Europe in the 16th century.
You will also visit Bayreuth and the museum of composer Richard Wagner. Here you have an optional tour of the rally grounds of Hitler. Then to Bamberg for lunch and a walking tour of this cute little town of narrow, winding, cobblestone streets that roam up and down lots of hills. This town is famous for their “smoked beer”, a taste to be acquired!
Next town was Rottenburg, a very pretty town with an abundance of decorative horticulture on the store fronts and houses. They are also known for their Christmas stores and steins.
A drive through Stuttgart, you will enter the Black Forest with a stay in the Black Forest. Then on to Lake Constance, the largest freshwater reservoir.
