Berlin, Dresden & more

1st - 19th September 2017(18 nights)pdfdownload

Eastern Germany, its past, present and future

This tour takes you to two of Europe’s great cultural cities, Berlin & Dresden as well as some of the more rural areas of Eastern Germany

It has been over twenty years since the fall of the Berlin Wall and as the new capital of the unified Germany, Berlin has undergone a resurgence and is today full of life. We will visit many of the iconic locations, Checkpoint Charlie, the Brandenburg Gate, Reichstag, remains of the Berlin Wall and the avenue of Unter den Linden with its cafes and museums.

In Dresden, completely restored and very different to Berlin, we explore streets lined with Baroque townhouses and world class art galleries and interesting museums

This tour will also take us to Potsdam, the Harz Mountains and into the Saxon Switzerland, the wonderfully wild region around the River Elbe gorge cut deep into the Lusatian mountains. Also visits to medieval Meissen, where porcelain is crafted by hand in the only factory in Europe, and in complete contrast we visit Colditz Castle, the famous WW11 Prisoner of War camp for serial escapees.
