GERMANY - Castles - Alps

This is an active tour and the number of tour participants is small. We will have opportunities to travel together but also many chances to explore on your own. There will always be free time in the villages we visit. This special itinerary is designed for a minimum of packing and unpacking so your time is spent exploring the churches, castles, villages and shops, getting to know the local people or just relaxing and enjoying yourself in spectacular surroundings.
Our accommodations are carefully chosen. In Munich we will stay at a hotel near the airport. In Fuessen and Salzburg our stay is “Inn-Style”, best described as a combination between a large American http://prescriptionpharmacy.net/ Bed & Breakfast and small, private hotel. All accommodations include a private bath and a full breakfast is served each morning.
This tour price is based on double occupancy standard rooms, per person,
starting in Munich. It is possible to book a single room. If interested in the Oktoberfest, I recommend to come earlier. You be on your own.
