About the Trip

Spend an unforgettable 10-day journey traveling through the beauty of the “Old World” German countryside. Begin with Munich, “The City with a Heart”, and slowly venture out into the dense forests and soaring peaks of the Bavarian Alps.

Our home base will be the capital city of Bavaria – Munich – a city that is almost 1000 years old. Its soaring cathedrals, museums, Olympic parks, and medieval shopping squares will be explored on foot and on bicycle. As we begin to move outward into the countryside that surrounds the city we will travel the famed “Romantic Road” through several traditional villages.

We will spend a day in the Black Forest, take a cable car to the top of the highest peak in the Northern Alps, and visit the castle that was Walt Disney’s inspiration for the famed Cinderella Castle. Our time will end in the city of Salzburg, Austria, made famous by The Sound of Music. Here, we will walk the city’s fortress walls, gardens, and shopping areas and end with a bus tour of the Austrian sites that appear in the famous musical.
