COACH ITINERARY

DAY 1: Arrive Berlin

Welcome to Germany. Airport transfers depart Berlin Airport for your tour hotel at 10:30 and 12:00. Later, join your Tour Director for a Welcome Reception and an opportunity to mingle and get to know each other, over a delightful evening of dinner and wine.

DAY 2: The Spirit of Berlin

(Relaxed Start) In the morning, join a Local Expert to see the highlights of Berlin. Your tour includes the Brandenburg Gate, State Opera House, remnants of the Berlin Wall, Unter den Linden and the restored Reichstag Building. Later on, feel free to soak up the Weihnachtszauber (Christmas magic) at the Gendarmenmarkt, Berlin’s most magnificent square, framed by the Concert Hall and near identical French and German cathedrals.

DAY 3: Leipzig, then on to Dresden.

Head south to Leipzig to visit Bach’s Thomaskirche and the medieval market square behind it. Renowned for its musical and culinary delights, the Leipzig Christmas Market is one of the most beautiful in Germany, with around 250 stalls located on the city’s historical market square. Enjoy its great traditions, which date back to the 15th century, before continuing to Dresden.

DAY 4: Dresden Sightseeing

(Relaxed Start) Gaze in awe at the Frauenkirche, risen once again from wartime ashes. Your guided tour with a Local Expert will continue past the colossal 'Procession of the Dukes' mosaic, the cathedral, Semper Opera House and Zwinger Palace. At Germany’s oldest Christmas Market, meet a local market stallholder who will introduce you to a taste of delicious Glühwein and Christstollen, a Christmas cake recipe dating back to medieval times. Take some time to admire the record-breaking Christmas pyramid.

DAY 5: Ancient Nuremberg

Head for Nuremberg, where the Christkindlmarkt stalls are donned in traditional red and white cloth. Surrounded by ancient ramparts and watchtowers, look out for the ‘Nuremberg Plum People’ while you explore or shop for local treats such as Rostbratwürste, Lebkuchen or Glühwein.

DAY 6: Head to picturesque Rothenburg

(Relaxed Start) Venture through the heart of Germany to Rothenburg-ob-der-Tauber, one of the best-preserved medieval towns in all of Europe. Why not stroll through the cobbled streets to the year-round Christmas Shop? Here it is Christmas 365 days of the year! Later, follow parts of the meandering Romantic Road to the Bavarian capital.

DAY 7: Munich Sightseeing

(Relaxed Start) Enjoy an orientation tour which concludes in the Marienplatz beside the soaring Town Hall, famous for its Glockenspiel. Here, beneath the gigantic Christmas tree, Munich’s traditional Christmas Market is an entrancing festival of light and music. In the evening, join your friends for a festive Celebration Dinner with wine and good cheer.

DAY 8: Depart Munich

Auf Wiedersehen!
