Itinerary

Day 1: Arrive in Frankfurt, Germany
Check into your hotel. The rest of the day is free for you to see some of Frankfurt. Tonight, meet your Tour Director and fellow travelers. (D)

Day 2: Frankfurt – Rhine Cruise – Cologne Area
Today’s highlight is an included Rhine cruise from Oberwesel to Boppard to enjoy scenic views of the Rhineland, including the famous Lorelei rock. The next highlight is Cologne and a visit to its impressive gothic cathedral, started in 1248 and completed in 1880. (B,D)

Day 3: Cologne Area – Hamelin – Hamburg
Leave the Cologne area this morning and journey into Niedersachsen to visit Hamelin. Admire its town center with its colorful historical buildings and magically fancy gables. Also hear the story of the Pied Piper. Continue to Hamburg, where you arrive in time for an optional harbor cruise. (B)

Day 4: Hamburg – Lubeck – Berlin
Start the day with an orientation drive to see one of Germany’s greatest maritime cities. Later this morning, a comfortable drive to Lübeck, formerly a free Hanseatic city and independent state. Lübeck, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is considered the cultural capital of northern Germany. Thomas Mann, Günther Grass, and Willy Brandt—all Nobel laureates—were among the famous residents of this city. Continue eastwards on the Autobahn to reach Berlin in time to enjoy your first evening in the capital of Germany. (B)

Day 5: Berlin
No longer divided but every bit as fascinating, Berlin was once the city of contrasts with the wall separating two different worlds. Now the city has developed into a harmonious blend of new and old, preserving its historical buildings and impressive boulevards as well as creating brand new buildings in the most daring architectural styles. See all of this on the included city sightseeing with a Local Guide. In the afternoon there is an optional excursion to historic Potsdam to visit Sanssouci Park, a marvel of landscape gardening and architectural wonders, and Cecilienhof Castle. (B)

Day 6: Berlin – Dresden – Leipzig
This morning, travel southwest to Dresden, the old capital of Saxony, at one time rightly called the “Florence on the Elbe.” See the Zwinger Carillon Pavilion and much more of this city on your included sightseeing.

(B,D)

Day 7: Leipzig – Weimar – Coburg – Nuremberg
Leave Leipzig for a stop in Weimar, home to many intellectuals of the past but mainly known for the name given to the historical period of the “Republic of Weimar.” This city is also famed as the home of the Bauhaus architectural movement in the 1920s.
