About the tour

Discover Bavaria on this all-inclusive tour and enjoy excursions to Lake Constance, fairytale Neuschwanstein and medieval Rothenburg, a highlight of the Romantic Road


What’s included


Days 1-2 - London and Langenau

Meet your Tour Manager at our London St Pancras Departure Office and board the Eurostar to Brussels. Continue by rail, via Cologne, to Ulm, then transfer by coach to Langenau for six nights.

Day 2 is free. Originally a Roman settlement, Langenau is one of the largest towns in the Alb-Donau region of southern Germany, and sits in the shadow of the impressive Swabian Alb mountain range. You have free time here to explore the 14th-century Church of St Martin, the Pfleghofsall Cultural Centre, and the Museum of Local History. Nearby Ulm is also worth a visit; the birthplace of Albert Einstein, Ulm has multiple claims to fame including a Guinness World Record for the world's most crooked house, and the world's highest steeple - situated at the top of its beautiful minster. Take a pleasant walk along the River Danube where you'll find the 14th-century 'Rathaus', with its stunning façade and astronomical clock dating back to the 16th century.

  • Day 1 - Dinner
  • Day 2 - Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 3 - Exploring Lindau

Visit Lindau today, situated on the edge of Lake Constance. This pretty town dates back to the 15th century and boasts breathtaking views towards the Swiss and Austrian Alps. You are free to explore this medieval destination with its tempting side streets and well-preserved town houses and municipal buildings.

Perhaps pay a visit to the Mangentrum. A 13th-century building that once served as a lighthouse for the lake, it's now adorned with a colourful tiled roof following a lightning strike in the 1970s. Another option is the Haus zum Cavazzen, a former city palace that has been turned into a museum. Dating back to the 16th century, the beautiful building now serves as a reminder of Lindau's past.

  • Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 4 - Neuschwanstein Castle

Spectacular Neuschwanstein Castle is today's destination. Built by 'The Fairytale King', Ludwig II, in the 19th century, the castle served no purpose as a fortification in the traditional sense, but was instead an elaborate retreat for the reclusive monarch. Featuring stunning towers and other typically medieval-style architecture, the castle served as inspiration for the Walt Disney's 'Sleeping Beauty'. Enjoy a guided tour, admiring the grand interiors and stunning views across the Bavarian countryside. You continue to nearby Füssen, a traditional Bavarian town on the beautiful Romantic Road, where you have some free time to explore its fairytale streets and pastel-toned, medieval buildings. Perhaps visit a cosy tavern and indulge in a local beer or two.

  • Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Neuschwanstein Castle
Day 5 - Langenau and beyond

Today is free to explore Langenau and other nearby towns. You may wish to visit Munich, the delightful capital of Bavaria. Munich is easily accessible by local rail, and there's plenty to see and do. The landmark of the city is the cathedral of Frauenkirche, with its twin onion-domed towers standing at a staggering 325 feet high.

There's also one of the world's oldest galleries, the Alte Pinakothek, to look around. Painters on display here include Ruben, Botticelli, El Greco, and Titian. Munich's famous for its historic beer halls, where you can enjoy a refreshing drink and lively entertainment.

  • Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 6 - Rothenburg

Today, visit one of Germany's bestpreserved medieval towns, Rothenburg, travelling along a part of the 'Romantic Road' - a 215-mile stretch through forests and mountains. Enjoy a guided tour of the Old Town, home to Rothenburg's medieval fortifications, Renaissance Town Hall, and halftimbered townhouses. There are also shops full of traditional Bavarian wares, and German taverns to entice you with the smell of local specialities.

  • Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 7 - Langenau and London

Travel by coach to Ulm this morning and catch the train to Cologne. Change here for the service to Brussels and join the Eurostar directly to London St Pancras.

Brilliantly organised from start to finish. Met at the Eurostar and guided at every step of the trip. Given information about interesting place, trains and costs. Would recommend for anyone who is able to manage on and off of trains. Pack light as it's no fun with an overweight suitcase.
