Day 2: Munich Orientation and At Leisure
Embark on a morning orientation tour past some of the city's most renowned sites, including the Opera House, Ludwigstrasse, Hofbräuhaus and Marienplatz, whose Glockenspiel delights visitors throughout the day with its re-enactment of 16th-century tales. Spend the rest of the day at leisure exploring the city's Old Town or consider an Optional Experience to the Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site, the first of the Nazi camps established in Germany. This evening, connect with the city's rich beer heritage and consider a memorable night out at a local beer hall.
Day 3: Munich - Neuschwanstein Castle - Oberammergau (2 Nights)
Journey to Neuschwanstein Castle, built as a retreat for shy King Ludwig II to retire from public life, then continue to Bavaria and the faithful village of Oberammergau, where locals have performed the Passion Play every decade since 1634 to fulfil their vow after the village was spared from the grip of the plague. Dine in your hotel this evening.
Day 4: Oberammergau (Passion Play Performance)
