Day 1 – Fly to Germany
We take our scheduled flight from London to Munich where we are met by our tour manager who will accompany us throughout our tour. We then travel by private executive coach to the 3* Hotel Seeblick in Bernried am Starnberger See (or similar) for a six night stay on half board basis.
Day 2 – Herrsching am Ammersee & Andechs Abbey
This morning you can choose to enjoy time at leisure in the town of Herrsching am Ammersee or join an optional cruise on picturesque Lake Ammersee. In the afternoon we travel on to the gorgeous hilltop monastery of Andechs. Founded in the 10th century, Andechs Abbey has long been a place of pilgrimage with relics reputed to come from Christ’s crown of thorns, and a victory cross of Charlemagne, whose army overran much of Western Europe in the 9th century. We enjoy an included beer tasting in the monastery brewery.
Day 3 – Neuschwanstein Castle & Füssen
This morning we visit Neuschwanstein Castle, the ‘castle of the fairy tale king’. The shy King Ludwig II had built the castle in order to withdraw from public life but seven weeks after his death in 1886 Neuschwanstein was opened to the public and today it is one of the most popular of all Europe’s castles. We spend the afternoon at leisure in Füssen.
Day 4 – Guided tour of Munich
On arrival in Munich this morning we enjoy a guided tour, taking in sights such as Michaelskirche, built by Duke Wilhelm V for the Jesuits who arrived here in 1559, and the Frauenkirche, completed in 1488 and one of Southern Germany’s biggest Gothic structures. We spend the afternoon at leisure in Munich.
Day 5 - Linderhof Palace & Garmisch
This morning we visit Linderhof Palace. Built between 1874 and 1878 and the smallest of King Ludwig II’s three royal castles, Linderhof was originally intended as a hunting lodge but later he declared it would be a new Versailles and the wonderful French Rococo interiors and beautiful parkland certainly reflect that ambition. We spend the afternoon at leisure in Garmisch, and you may choose to join our optional Zugspitze Cogwheel Railway journey.
Day 6 – Oberammergau Passion Play
This morning we take the short journey to the village of Oberammergau and after time for lunch, we take our Category 2 seats for the Passion Play. The performance runs from 2.30pm till 10.30pm with a three hour interval for included dinner. After the Play finishes, we transfer back to our hotel.
Day 7 – Return to the UK
After checking out of our hotel this morning we travel to Munich airport for our flight back home.
