Day 1 – Fly to Germany
We meet at our designated pick up points and transfer by coach to our allocated London airport for our scheduled flight to Munich. On arrival we are met by our tour manager who will accompany us throughout our tour. Transfer in our private executive coach to the 3* Hotel Kolberbräu in Bad Tölz (or similar) for a four night stay on a 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.
Day 3 - Neuschwanstein Castle & Linderhof Palace
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 travel on to 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.
Day 4 - Oberammergau Passion Play
This morning we take the short journey to the village of Oberammergau and after time for lunch, we take our Category 1 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 5 – Fly home
We leave our hotel and travel to Munich. Flight times permitting, there is the option of a guided city tour followed by free time for lunch, to relax or for sightseeing before travelling to Munich Airport for our flight back to London. We continue by coach back to our original pick up points.
