Overview

Operated by ?

Germany is a country filled with spectacular scenery, medieval towns, fairytale castles, a fascinating history, and world-class beer. On this Germany tour, see Germany's highlights and visit its most famous cities, medieval towns, and scenic areas. Your vacation begins and ends in Frankfurt with overnights also in Cologne, Berlin, Dresden, Nuremberg, Munich, Oberammergau, and the Black Forest. You'll visit the must-see attractions in each city, including Cologne’s famous gothic cathedral, with its twin-steepled towers, and Berlin’s Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church, badly damaged during the war and today a symbol of reconciliation.

Magnificent scenery also awaits you on this Germany vacation. Enjoy a Rhine cruise along the Rhine River’s most scenic section, with castle-crested hills, terraced vineyards, and pretty wine towns. Visit King Ludwig II's Neuschwanstein Castle, nestled high in the Alps. Drive on the panoramic German Alpine Road to beautiful Lake Constance, Europe's largest freshwater reservoir, and to the charming island of Lindau. Stop in Rothenburg, a walled town that has retained its medieval character, and enjoy Germany's lush Black Forest region, where you’ll learn about woodcarving and enjoy coffee and Black Forest Cake—a special experience included by Globus.

A tour to Germany would not be complete without sampling the local cuisine and beer. That's why Globus has included a beer at a famous brewery in Cologne, founded over 100 years ago. Bratwurst has been a tradition in Nuremberg for many centuries, and Globus has included dinner at a local Nuremberg restaurant to taste the traditional Nürnberger Bratwürste. But that’s not all…Globus has included first-class seats to the Passion Play in Oberammergau. Performed every 10 years and set with the majestic alpine scenery as a backdrop, it’s a magnificent experience.

From the beautiful scenery and exciting cities to the traditional food and wonderful beer, this Germany tour has it all!

By June 2021, your vacation, which includes the Oberammergau Passion Play, requires a per-person, non-refundable deposit of £480. Prior to June 2021, a minimum of £200 non-refundable per person deposit is required to secure your reservation and tickets for the play.
