What’s included

Itinerary

Day 1 - London & 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 to Langenau. 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 stay here for six nights.

Includes
  • Dinner
Day 2 - Langenau

Today is free for you to explore. You could visit the 14th-century Church of St Martin, the Pfleghofsall Cultural Centre, or 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. You could 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.

Includes
  • 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're free to explore this medieval destination with its tempting side streets and well-preserved townhouses 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 beautiful former city palace dating back to the 16th century that's now a museum.

Includes
  • Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 4 - Neuschwanstein Castle

Visit spectacular Neuschwanstein Castle. Built by 'The Fairytale King', Ludwig II, in the 19th century, the castle was constructed as an elaborate countryside retreat for the reclusive monarch. Featuring stunning towers and other medieval-style architecture, the castle served as inspiration for Walt Disney's 'Sleeping Beauty'. And you can understand why, peeping through a lush green landscape from its hilltop position, it looks made for a fairytale. Enjoy a guided tour of the castle, admiring the grand interiors and stunning views across the Bavarian countryside. Later, you continue to nearby Füssen, a traditional Bavarian town on the Romantic Road. You have time to explore its quaint streets and pastel-toned medieval buildings, perhaps strolling along the river or enjoying a local beer in a tavern.

Includes
  • Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 5 - Langenau

Today is free for you to explore more of 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 here. The landmark of the city is the cathedral of Frauenkirche, with its towering twin onion-domed towers. For art lovers, one of the world's oldest galleries, the Alte Pinakothek, is located in the city and is fascinating to look around, with paintings by artists including Ruben, Botticelli, El Greco, and Titian. Munich's also famous for its historic beer halls, where you can enjoy a refreshing drink and lively, traditional entertainment.

Includes
  • Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 6 - Rothenburg

After breakfast, visit one of Germany's best-preserved medieval towns, Rothenburg, travelling along another 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 half-timbered townhouses. There are also shops full of traditional Bavarian wares, and German taverns to entice you with the scent of tasty local specialities.

Lovely hotel;Fantastic tour guide;Lovely places visited; However…….too much travelling every day(up to 4 hours);7 a.m. breakfasts meant getting up at 6/6.30 every day…..on holiday!!! And clocks were 1 hour ahead of U.K. time,so body clock well out of synch. One day coach arbitrarily chose to arrive 45 min.s late to take us out,and departed the destination 30 min.s earlier than advertised. Meaning we LOST 1 1/4 hours of the trip. Came home completely exhausted. 9.a.m. departure from St. Pancras needs to be looked at,as this requires travellers to be there at 7.30/8.00 a.m. if travelling from anywhere other than London it requires an overnight stay in town,adding to the costs. Not again for me thanks.
