Take in some of the most iconic and picture-perfect settings in Austria and Germany, from dramatic Bavarian castles to spectacular Tyrolean Alpine scenery.

A journey to the summit of the imposing Zugspitze Mountain rounds off this fantastic tour.

 

HOLIDAY HIGHLIGHTS

 

Lermoos   |   Neuschwanstein   |   Hohenschwangau   |   Füssen   |   Linderhof Palace   |   Ettal Abbey   |   Zugspitze   |   Garmisch-Partenkirchen

 

DAY ONE & TWO – Arrival in Lermoos

We depart from your home with an early start to make our way to Dover and our crossing to Calais, and head for our overnight hotel and dinner this evening. The following morning, we make our way to Lermoss, surrounded by the mountains of the Tiroler Zugspitz Arena and in the midst of a beautiful natural landscape.

 

DAY THREE – Lermoos

We spend today at leisure, taking advantage of our hotel’s extensive leisure facilities or exploring the local area.

 

DAY FOUR – Neuschwanstein, Hohenschwangau & Füssen

Today we visit the most romantic castle in the world, King Ludwig II’s Neuschwanstein. Used as Walt Disney’s inspiration for Sleeping Beauty’s castle, the mock-medieval architecture and stunning views must be seen to be believed. After time for lunch, we visit King Ludwig’s nearby childhood home, Hohenschwangau Castle, with its richly furnished interiors that exude a more ‘lived in’ feel. We then spend the rest of our day exploring the beautiful monastic town of Füssen at leisure.

Please note entrance to both castles involves an uphill walk and there are steps within both castles.

 

DAY FIVE – Linderhof Palace & Ettal Abbey

Our first destination today is King Ludwig’s Linderhof Palace, where we admire intricately ornate interiors and the beautiful gardens, designed by Carl von Effner, which combine formal Baroque-style with Italian Renaissance and landscaping. After time for lunch, we visit Ettal Abbey, a stunning Benedictine Monastery famous for its production of beer and cheese, both of which can be bought in the adjoining shop.

Please note extensive restoration work in and around the Venus Grotto will last until the end of 2024. The Grotto cannot be visited during this time.

 

DAY SIX – Zugspitze & Garmisch-Partenkirchen

Today we enjoy an amazing journey to the top of Germany’s highest mountain, the majestic Zugspitze, which sits at 2,962 metres above sea level with the Austrian-German border

running through its western summit. We start our ascent from the Austrian side via the stunning cable car journey from nearby Ehrwald, soaking in some of the most dramatic views we will ever see along the way. We spend some time at the summit, crossing into Germany, with time to admire the views of 400 mountain peaks spanning four countries, visible on clear days from the café and terraces. We then descend the German side of the mountain by cable car, before a cogwheel train transports us to the Bavarian town of Garmisch-Partenkirchen, where we enjoy some time at leisure.

 

DAY SEVEN & EIGHT - Departure

We depart from our hotel today and start our journey home, making our way back to our overnight hotel. The next morning, we travel to Calais and our return ferry and travel home.
