Christmas Tour through Germany
Munich - Nürnberg - Dresden - Berlin

Rathaus: Munich City Hall



Day 2: Drive to Germany’s (the World’s?) most famous castle: Neuschwanstein (the “Disney’ Castle”!). It’s a spectacular sight on the foot of the majestic Alps. Visit the Castle, and then the group will split up: the active ones will go on a hiking trip and go down by gondula. The others will visit the lovely city of Füssen. On the way back to Munich, stop at the picturesque Cloister Ettal.
