We will spend time in these cities:
Berlin - the “Fall of the Wall”, the city is now a world leader in fashion, art, design, music and museums.
Radebeul / Dresden - is a wine village just outside Dresden, former home of Saxon Kings and now a cultural centre restored to its former baroque splendour.
Prague – The ancient capital of Bohemia has soaring cathedrals, lavish palaces and festive city squares.
Munich – Bavaria’s capital has a fascinating history, small town charm and a beautifully restored Old Town.
Lucerne - medieval town nestled along the edge of a sapphire-blue lake and stunning mountains, lined with waterfront promenades and picture-perfect wood bridges.
Oberammergau - highlight of our tour is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The residents of this quaint Bavarian village have been performing this emotional play every 10 years since 1647 to honour a solemn pledge to “The Almighty”. As the Black Death (bubonic plague) swept across Europe, some of the villagers survived and made a vow to re-enact the agony of Christ’s crucifixion in thanks for being spared. There is a cast of 600 and a chorus of 100. The beautiful open stage is framed by magnificent alpine scenery. The play is in German but there are ongoing translations. We have the best available seating for the play.
*** Those joining any of our tours to Europe must be able to walk fairly long distances and climb stairs easily.
