Overview

Operated by ?

When you think of Germany, what comes to mind? Varied and beautiful countryside, medieval towns with their old-world charm, a contrasting capital city where history has blended old and new styles together, or perhaps savoring German food with a stein of beer. All of this and more is included on this marvelous guided tour of Germany from Berlin to Munich. Sightseeing in each city includes the must-see attractions. In Berlin, you’ll visit Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church, badly damaged during the war and today a symbol of reconciliation. During your orientation in Dresden, visit the courtyard of Zwinger Palace, one of Germany’s best-known baroque buildings. In Munich, visit the lively Marienplatz. Here, observe the famous Glockenspiel, which re-creates a 16th-century wedding.

Step back in history with a Local Guide when you visit Augsburg, one of Germany’s oldest cities. Globus treats you to an incomparable experience—an overnight in medieval Rothenburg with its ramparts and towers, cobblestone lanes, and 16th-century houses. A farewell dinner at a local restaurant in Munich completes your German experience. Throughout this escorted tour of Germany, your Tour Director will share the ins and outs of its history, secrets, culture, and language. So all you have to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy this fantastic German Escape.
