10D9N Germany: Romantic Road and Bavaria
For more information on the Romantic Road and other places of interest in Bavaria, click here.
On arrival at Frankfurt International Airport, your driver will meet you at the arrival hall and drive you to your hotel in Frankfurt. Spend the rest of the day relaxing in Frankfurt, a global city that is also the financial centre of Germany and home to the European Central Bank. Frankfurt is well known for its museums covering the arts, sciences and history. Not to be missed is its Old Town (Altstadt) with a very picturesque public square which is also the city’s busiest pedestrian zone and home to numerous tourist attractions (including the Christmas Market in December).
Day 02 – FRANKFURT – WURZBURG [B,L]
Depart Frankfurt by coach on a guided tour of Wurburg, a university town well-known for its lavish baroque and rococo architecture and also as the wine capital of Franconia (in northern Bavaria). Its main attractions are the 18th century Residenz Palace (an impressive example of Mediterranean baroque architecture), a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the imposing Marienberg Citadel. Located on the banks of the River Main and surrounded by vineyards stretching as far as the eyes can see, Wurzburg’s idyllic setting adds to its charm and it is in fact the starting point of Bavaria’s well-renowned “Romantic Road”.
Day 03 – WURZBURG – ROTHENBURG OB DER TAUBER [B,L]
Depart Wurzburg by coach on a guided tour of Rothenburg ob der Tauber, a medieval gem and probably the best preserved medieval town in the whole of Germany. Wander through its beautiful streets and alleyways which are full of the charm of the past. In winter, Rothenburg’s famous Christmas Market transforms the town into an idyllic winter wonderland. The famous Käthe Wohlfahrt “Christmas Village” in the heart of Rothenburg which is open all year keeps the Christmas feeling going well before and well after Christmas!
Day 04 – ROTHENBURG OB DER TAUBER – NUREMBERG [B]
Board a train at Rothenburg ob der Tauber and head to Nuremburg. Home to Germany’s most famous Christmas market and also Germany’s most famous Renaissance artist Albrecht Durer, Nuremberg (“Nurnberg” in German) has a sizeable old town with cobblestone streets and structures reminiscent of its rich and proud medieval and Renaissance past. Nuremberg is home to Germany’s most famous food export – German sausages and in particular the Nurnberger sausage.
Day 05 – NUREMBERG: BAMBERG [B]
Go on a guided tour of Bamberg, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and one of Europe’s largest old towns untouched by WW2 bombings. Replete with structures reminding any visitor of its rich heritage from medieval times – with structures from the 11th to 19th centuries including a muralled old town hall, picturesque churches, beautiful bridges and half-timbered houses – Bamberg is a highly picturesque town! For those who love beers, Bamberg’s world-famous smoked beer (“rauchbier”) is not to be missed (smoked beer has a distinctive smoke flavour and character imparted by using malted barley roasted over an open flame).
Day 06 – NUREMBERG – MUNICH [B]
Board a train at Nuremberg and head to Munich, the capital of Bavaria, and home to centuries-old buildings and numerous museums. Munich is known for its annual Oktoberfest celebration and its beer halls, including the famed Hofbräuhaus, founded in 1589. In the Old Town (“Altstadt”) is Marienplatz, a central square with landmarks such as the neo-Gothic Neues Rathaus (town hall) with the Rathaus Glockenspiel (reputed to be the most extravagant clock in the world). And in the days leading up to Christmas, the entire old town of Munich is one huge Christmas Market!
Day 07 – MUNICH: ZUGSPITZE [B]
Join a guided tour to Zugspitze, the highest mountain in Germany with a 2,962m summit accessed by cogwheel train and cable car. Zugspitze has three glaciers and it is Germany’s highest ski resort with more than 20km of ski pistes covered with natural snow for about six months of the year. At the top, enjoy 360-degree panoramic views of the German and Austrian alps (on a clear day, you can see more than 400 mountain peaks in four countries!).
Day 08 – MUNICH: NEUSCHWANSTEIN LINDERHOF AND OBERAMMERGAU [B]
Join a guided tour to Neuschwanstein Castle, Linderhof Palace (the only palace of King Ludwig II that was completed before his death) and Oberammergau. From a bridge near Neuschwanstein Castle, enjoy the picture-perfect iconic views of this 19th century masterpiece, the fairy-tale – “Sleeping Beauty“ – castle of King Ludwig II. Oberammergau is a beautiful alpine village renowned for its woodcarving industry and its once-a-decade Passion Plays (for the last 380 years) attracting visitors from all over the world.
