Lederhosen, pretzels, a beautiful Alpine backdrop, excellent beer, storybook castles, and medieval towns…this is Bavaria and on this Germany tour, you’ll experience Bavaria's highlights. You’ll overnight in Munich, Regensburg, Nuremberg, the Black Forest, the Füssen area, and Oberammergau, and you’ll visit many medieval towns along the way.

Sightseeing throughout the tour features the must-see attractions. In Munich, visit Marienplatz with its famous glockenspiel. History buffs will be delighted in Regensburg, where sightseeing features the 12th-century Stone Bridge, the oldest preserved bridge of its kind in Germany; the Porta Pretoria, gates to an ancient Roman fort built in the 2nd century; and St. Peter's Cathedral, begun in the 13th century. In Nuremberg, admire the impressive medieval ramparts as you walk through the pedestrian area of the charming Old Town. Near Oberammergau, visit Neuschwanstein Castle, King Ludwig II’s fairytale castle nestled in the Bavarian Alps.

Additionally, on this Germany tour, Globus has included special experiences to help you get a feel for Bavaria and to make your vacation unique. Among the many included features, enjoy the Historic Sausage Kitchen in Regensburg, Germany's oldest restaurant. Here—where the locals congregate—feel the vibrant atmosphere and take in the remarkable views along the river as you enjoy a "medieval hotdog." You’ll also cruise on the Danube River aboard a Swarovski crystal boat. In medieval Bamberg, the city with Germany’s largest historical center and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, taste "smoked beer," a type of beer with a distinctive smoke flavor. In the charming village of Oberammergau, witness the world-famous Passion Pay, performed every 10 years by Oberammergau’s residents.

These are just a few of the many highlights on this Bavarian tour. From the historical Passion Play and fascinating towns to the unique experiences and beautiful scenery, this is a vacation of a lifetime!
