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 holiday. 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.
Feel the passion of Oberammergau’s once-a-decade production of the legendary Passion Play. Performed by an epic cast of locals in this picturesque Bavarian town, the 2022 Passion Play is a promise kept by villagers as a bargain with God to spare them from the black plague of 1633. Don’t wait another decade for this once-in-a-lifetime experience!
