Have you ever read a book and longed to see for yourself the destination described on its pages? Or perhaps you’ve watched a movie or TV show and became quickly enthralled with the destination vowing to go there yourself one day. You can walk the same streets as Jane Austen did in Bath, Winchester, or Chawton. The homes of Shakespeare, the Bronte sisters, Sir Walter Scott, Anne of Green Gables, and so many more inspiring destinations. See firsthand some of the filming sites of Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, Outlander, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars. The possibilities are endless.
German Fairytales and More…
During this 11-day journey, we will venture through Germany from Munich y to Berlin, stopping in small towns and villages, famous for culture, traditions and literary history. We'll enjoy a guided city tour of Munich and the festivities of Oktoberfest. We make our way to Neuschwanstein Castle – the famous castle that inspired Walt Disney's Cinderella’s Castle, and include a stop in Oberammergau, where the Passion Play is held every 10 years (next up in 2020). We continue on to the medieval city of Rothenberg, perhaps the most famous town of Germany’s Romantic Road. Enjoy free time to explore this beautiful town, take in some wine tasting and join the Night Watchman’s Tour. Then we make our way to the famous Fairy-tale Route, made famous by the Brothers Grimm. We’ll stop in Bremen, Hamelin, Trendelberg, Sababurg and Kassel – all towns where the Grimm Brother’s either lived, studied, wrote and based their famous stories. We’ll see Rapunzel’s Tower, Sleepy Beauty’s Castle, Lowenburg Castle and Grimm World Center and exhibition. We'll enjoy a guided city tour of Berlin, a tour of Sanssoucci Palace and Gardens in Potsdam, and a visit to Bergen-Belsen – the concentration camp where Anne Frank spent her final days.
