Luxurious and elegant accommodations await you in each destination.
From castles to chateaux, each accommodation will leave you spellbound in the cradle of luxury and exemplary service and attention to detail.
German food is rich, hearty, and diverse. It's comfort eating with high-quality, often locally sourced ingredients. The cuisine of Germany has been shaped not only by the country's agricultural traditions but by the many immigrants that have made the country home over the centuries.
It's definitely more than a mere mix of beer, sauerkraut and sausage.
Today Germans appreciate well-prepared, well-served meals as much as they do a quick bite on the go. This is a country of food markets, beer gardens, wine festivals, food museums, and high-end restaurants.
FAIRYTALE CASTLES & ROYAL GEMS
Enjoy a private transfer from Fussen to Munich, visiting the famed Neuschwanstein Castle en route. In the midst of the German Alps, the magnificent towers of Neuschwanstein rise in majestic splendor, jutting out of the land as though part of a fairy-tale.
Set in a beautiful location, the castle overlooks the idyllic 700-year-old, the medieval village of Fussen. The panoramic views are spectacular with unspoiled natural lakes and valleys stretching far into the distant horizon. Entrances are included, and after exploring Neuschwanstein, your journey will continue onward to Munich.
A DAZZLING DRIVE
Enjoy a private transfer from Wurzburg to Rothenburg, traveling along the Romantic Road en route. The town of Wurzburg is the gateway to the Romantic Road – Germany’s most popular tourist route. From Wurzburg, travel through Tauberbischofsheim and Bad Mergentheim, continue through the lovely Tauber River Valley to Weikersheim and its impressive renaissance castle that is always worth a visit.
On it goes to Creglingen and the Herrgottskirche with the marvelous wooden altar by Tilman Riemenschneider. The main attraction of the trip is Rothenburg ob der Tauber, a town that doesn’t appear to have changed much since the Middle Ages. Entrance fees not included. The approximate travel time is five hours.
SIGNATURE SIGHTS IN STYLE
Enjoy a half day in the company of a local Guide as they bring you around the historical part of Rothenburg on a guided walking tour. The city is one of the star attractions along Germany's "Romantic Road". The city celebrates its well-preserved medieval buildings, walls and its unspoiled setting.
The market square houses two of the city’s most important buildings - the Town Hall (which was built over a 300 year period from 1250) and the historical City Councillors Tavern. The former city walls are still intact and make for a great wander around and above the city.
About a ten minutes walk from Rothenburg's city center you can sit under the trees on the river Tauber - in the unique and beautiful beer garden "Unter den Linden" - a true oasis of peace and relaxation. You may even wish to dangle your feet in the river!
No visit to Munich is complete without a dining experience at the famous Hofbrauhaus. Germans' love of beer is unrivaled worldwide, and Munich is home to Bavaria's most celebrated beer hall: Hofbrauhaus. Formerly the royal brewery for the Kingdom, Hofbrauhaus is now owned by the state government and also has the second-largest tent at Oktoberfest - "Hofbrau-Festzelt".
Grab a stein of their finest brew and drink with friends in the restaurant, die Schwemme (beer hall), or Biergarten (beer garden) often accompanied by live music. In case there was any doubt about how much Germans value their beer, regulars to Hofbrauhaus keep their valuable steins in a series of safes in the beer hall.
