Join us on a wonderful journey of discovery, as we travel into Germany’s beautiful region of Bavaria. Explore the interesting medieval city of Nuremberg, picture-postcard Rothenburg village, as well as visiting awesome Neuschwanstein Castle.
Staying in the quaint town of Langenau as our base for exploring the surrounding area, you can also enjoy a great value inclusive package.
We visit the historic Bavarian town of Rothenburg ob der Tauber. The town during the Middle Ages, was one of the largest in what is now modern Germany, larger than both Munich and Frankfurt and it has changed very little since. The more than 500 year old Aldstadt in the centre of the town and the city walls that surround it have remained unchanged since their construction and walking around this amazing town you will feel as though you have been transported back in time.
Make the most of our guided walking tour of this historical and interesting town to learn more about its history. Admire Rothenburg’s picturesque scenery and take in its many attractions during our time here.
We take a short journey to the city of Ulm, famous as the birthplace of Einstein and for its Munster which has the tallest steeple in the world. We will take in fantastic sights across the city’s old town including the city hall, the marketplace in front of the Munster and the fishermen’s quarter.
Today we visit the fairy-tale castle of Neuschwanstein, King Ludwig’s most outlandish creation, brimming with turrets and pinnacles. The castle was built as a private refuge in the mountains and has appeared in several movies and was the inspiration for Sleeping Beauty's castle at Disney. Admire this magnificent building, set in the beautiful Bavarian alpine region.
A city fit for a king; don’t miss this opportunity to discover the undeclared capital of the Holy Roman Empire, where the beer is as dark as the coffee. The cityscape of Nuremberg, Bavaria’s second largest city, is dominated by the stunning castle, a mighty fortress built in 1140.
Of course, Nuremberg is also known for the activities that took place here before and during the Second World War, and our guided city tour will uncover infamous sites including the former Nazi Party Rally Grounds.
Today we visit Bavaria’s second largest city, Nuremberg. Historically the city was one of the most important centres of the Holy Roman Empire and is now known as one of the best examples of what visitors would expect from a “typical” German town. It has a huge Old Town in its centre with sights including the castle, city walls, and the colossal St Sebald Church.
The typically German Hotel Jagerhaus, is located close to Langenau's village centre, with its shops, bars and restaurants.
You will have the option to book your own flights independently with the operator.
