Oberammergau to Neuschwanstein/Linderhof Castles - Munich

Today we’ll depart the quaint village of Oberammergau  and travel to visit Neuschwanstein and Linderhof Castles.  These were the residences of King Ludwig II of Bavaria.  An eccentric recluse, Ludwig depleted the treasury of his country, building extravagant castles and died in mysterious circumstances. Neuschwanstein seems unreal in its romantic Alpine setting and Linderhof is certainly the most elaborate “hunting lodge” you will ever see. This afternoon we’ll arrive into the capital city of Bavaria, Munich and enjoy a panorama city tour seeing many highlights, including the focal point of its historic inner city, the large open square called Marienplatz, where you'll find the Old and New Town Halls. Munich is also famous for its many fine churches, including Peterskirche, the oldest inner city church built during the Romanesque period; the Cathedral of our Lady (Frauenkirche), the city's most famous building; and Michaelskirche, the largest Renaissance church north of the Alps. 

Meals : Breakfast, Dinner

Then, enjoy Kaffee (or soda) und Schwarzwaldkuchen (coffee and the traditional homemade Black Forest Cake).

Meals : Breakfast
Day 12: Sunday, July 31, 2022

Rhine River Cruise

Today’s highlight is a romantic RHINE CRUISE along the most scenic part of the river, Middle Rhine Valley, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with its centuries old castles and the storied Lorelei Rock.  The Lorelei Rock is a 194 meter high slate cliff towering above the narrowest point of the Rhine.    It’s celebrated in song and shrouded in legend – one of Germany's top sites.  Tonight we will share one last dinner together before we start to prepare for our journey home.
