5 Days from £1199

We meet at our allocated London airport for our direct scheduled flight to Munich where we are met by our tour manager who will accompany us throughout our tour. We then transfer in our private executive coach to the 3* Hotel Kolberbräu

Friday 17 July – Ammersee & Andechs Abbey
This morning you can choose to enjoy time at leisure in the town of Herrsching am Ammersee or join an optional cruise on picturesque Lake Ammersee. In the afternoon we travel on to the gorgeous hilltop monastery of Andechs. Founded in the 10th century, Andechs Abbey has long been a place of pilgrimage with relics reputed to come from Christ’s crown of thorns, and a victory cross of Charlemagne, whose army overran much of Western Europe in the 9th century.

Saturday 18 July – Neuschwanstein & Linderhof
This morning we visit Neuschwanstein Castle, the ‘castle of the fairy tale king’. The shy King Ludwig II had built the castle in order to withdraw from public life but seven weeks after his death in 1886 Neuschwanstein was opened to the public and today it is one of the most popular of all Europe’s castles. We travel on to Linderhof Palace. Built between 1874 and 1878 and the smallest of King Ludwig II’s three royal castles, Linderhof was originally intended as a hunting lodge but later he declared it would be a new Versailles and the wonderful French Rococo interiors and beautiful parkland certainly reflect that ambition.

Sunday 19 July – Oberammergau Passion Play
This morning we take the short journey to the village of Oberammergau and after time for lunch, we take our seats for the Passion Play. The performance runs from 2.30pm till 10.30pm, with a three hour interval for included dinner. After the Play finishes, we transfer back to our hotel. 

Monday 20 July – Munich & Departure

The salt mines at Hallein, one of the oldest in the world, brought riches to the archbishops and built the magnificent city of Salzburg. At

Kaiservilla at Bad Ischl is the former summer capital of the great Austro-Hungarian monarchy and associated with the Hapsburg’s for
