2023 Tour Details
Bratwurst and beer, castles and cathedrals, and centuries of history and skilled craftspeople. The time has come to pack your lederhosen for the wonderful lagers, landscapes, and lore of Germany. From world-class cities to half-timbered towns and romantic river valleys to fairytale forests, we’ve compiled the country’s highlights for the ultimate Germany vacation. This encompassing tour of Germany kicks off in Frankfurt with a river cruise along the vineyard-dotted Rhine, picks up speed with a train ride from Cologne to Berlin, and then makes its way from the restored city of once war-ravaged Dresden to the best of Bavaria and the enchanting Black Forest. Castle-topped hills, snow-capped peaks, and foam-topped pilsners present the sweetest of sights while traditional Black Forest Cake and Nuremberg Gingerbread are your just desserts.

"I have had the privilege of being a Tour Director for many years and even after all this time, there is still so much to share. I believe traveling is a learning experience. You learn about places, cultures, history, and of course, yourself. When traveling through Central and Western Europe, I love to help my groups learn by sharing what I know with them. What I love most is what they share with me. At the end of the trip, I have the feeling we have enriched each other's lives."

"The role of a Tour Director is much more than organizing and planning. Each new group brings wonderful new people to meet and unique experiences to share. Thanks to this profession, I have the opportunity to show the beauty and treasures of different European regions and cultures with new friends along the way."

"When you join me on a tour of Eastern Europe, you can discover our beautiful medieval towns and great national park, relax on the shores of the blue Adriatic while sipping a glass of wine from our vineyards, spend time with the friendly locals, and learn about our culture, hospitality, folklore, and lively music."
