Trip Summary
1 nights in Frankfurt

Frankfurt is the financial capital of Germany, and for many travelers, the gateway to Europe. A closer look reveals there is much more to offer; from arts, outdoors, and shopping, to historic building and high-rises. Frankfurt has also long been an important center for cultural and tourism activities. Its huge trade fair complex, Messe Frankfurt, hosts important events such as the Frankfurt Book Fair (the world`s most important publishing event). The city is known for its exceptional number of fine museums covering art, science, and history.

Recommended Stay: At least 3 nights
Must See`s:
The Römerberg, Museum District (Museumsufer), The Palm Garden (Palmengarten), St. Bartholomew`s Cathedral, The Hauptwache, Goethe House and Museum, The Frankfurt Museum of Modern Art, Zoo Frankfurt, Stadel Museum, and so much more!



2 nights in Wurzburg

Würzburg the capital of Lower Franconia is one of the loveliest baroque cities in the country and became famous as the center of Franconian wine production. Called "the town of Madonnas" because of the more than 100 statues of its patron saint that adorn the house fronts, it is also the best place to start driving the Romantic Road. A famous landmark of Wurzburg is the mighty fortress Festung Marienberg, from where you get a nice view over the famous sights and the pilgrimage church Käppele, also an idyllic spot on a hill above the town. In spring and summer, the liveliest place in town is the Markt (central marketplace). Here street performers entertain and vendors hawk their wares, ranging from fresh fruit to souvenir trinkets. You can also stroll down the traffic-free Schönbornstrasse, with its modern boutiques and cafes. The wine merchants here will sell you a Bocksbeutel, the emerald-green, narrow-necked wine bottle that's native to the region. It's said that the shape came about because wine-drinking monks found it the easiest to hide under their robes.



2 nights in Rothenburg ob der tauber

Often considered one of the most attractive towns in Germany, it`s also one of the most popular stopovers on the country`s beautiful Romantic Road tourist route. Picturesquely positioned on the steep banks of the River Tauber, its walls and towers have remained unharmed since the Thirty Years War of 1618. Adding to the experience are the many great museums dealing with the town`s rich history, along with countless architectural splendors such as the 13th-century Town Hall (Rathaus), the 14th-century Council Tavern, and its many fine old churches. As you explore the town`s impressive old streets and buildings, you`ll feel as if you stepped back in time.

Recommended Stay: At least 2 nights
Must See`s:
St. Jacob`s Church, Market Square, The Town Hall, The Old Town Walls, Medieval Crime Museum, The Christmas Museum, The Imperial Town Museum, Double Bridge, Old Town, and so much more!



2 nights in Fussen

Füssen, often called the romantic soul of Bavaria, is famed for its location being in the kings nook (Königswinkel), and its closeness to King Ludwig`s dream castle. Situated on one of the most scenic German holiday routes, the Romantic Road (Romantische Straße), starts (or ends) here. The area is surrounded by beautiful nature, history and the most famous German Castles, as well as rolling hills, green meadows, and the peaks of the Alps. The scenery is breathtaking, especially on a sunny day.

Recommended Stay: At least 3 nights
Must See`s:
Neuschwanstein Castle, Schloss Hohenschwangau, Museum der Bayerischen Könige, Tegelberg Cable Car, Museum Füssen, Medieval Town Center, Lake Forgensee, Kloster St. Mang, Wieskirche Church, and so much more!



2 nights in Munich

Big-city style and rural charm, Alpine character and Mediterranean verve, art treasures and the Oktoberfest, traditional customs and high technology, beer gardens and haute cuisine, operas and cool bars; these are all ingredients that makes Bavaria's state capital so endlessly fascinating, and so popular with visitors from all over the world. Sprawling Munich is one of Germany's major cultural centers, second only to Berlin in terms of museums and theaters. It's also one of Germany's most festive cities, and its location, at the foot of the Alps, is idyllic. Munich's self-imposed image is that of a fun-loving and festival-addicted city - typified by its Oktoberfest.

Recommended Stay:
At least 3 nights

Must See's:
Marienplatz and the New Town Hall of Munich, Frauenkirche - Cathedral of Our Blessed Lady, Dachau Concentration Camp, The English Garden, Beer Halls, Viktualienmarkt, Residence Palace of Munich, Deutsches Museum, Museums Ensemble: Alte Pinakothek, Neue Pinakothek, Pinakothek der Moderne, Olympic Stadium of Munich, BMW Museum and much more.

Package Map Picture
Germany

Germany's landscape is straight from the Fairy tales: castles, deep dark forests and mythical rivers. The German landscapes are extraordinarily diverse, with graceful big-city appeal, small picture-postcard towns, pagan-inspired harvest festivals, a wealth of art and culture, and the perennial pleasures of huge tracts of forest, delightful castles and fine wine and beer. From Charlemagne and the Holy Roman Empire to the rise and fall of the Berlin Wall, no other nation has molded Europe the way Germany has - for better or worse.
