    Germany Highlights

    Munich Munich
    Munich, capital of Bavaria, is home to centuries-old buildings and numerous museums. The city is known for its annual Oktoberfest celebration and its beer halls, including the famed Hofbrauhaus, founded in 1589. In the Altstadt (Old Town), central Marienplatz square contains landmarks such as Neo-Gothic Neues Rathaus (town hall), with a popular glockenspiel show that chimes and reenacts stories from the 16th century.

    Nuremberg Nuremberg
    Nuremberg is the second-largest city of the German federal state of Bavaria after its capital Munich, and its 511,628 inhabitants make it the 14th largest city in Germany. As you tour the city, discover how at the end of WWII, the city became famous for the Nuremberg trials of Nazi officials for war crimes and against humanity.

    Castle Neunschwanstein Castle
    Neuschwanstein Castle is a nineteenth-century Romanesque Revival palace on a rugged hill above the village of Hohenschwangau near Fussen in southwest Bavaria, Germany. The palace was commissioned by Ludwig II of Bavaria as a retreat and as a homage to Richard Wagner. Ludwig paid for the palace out of his personal fortune and by means of extensive borrowing, rather than Bavarian public funds.

    Testimonials from past Germany Tours

    Barbara Canfora- “I traveled with Craftours to the Christmas Markets in Germany this past December, 2013. We all had a wonderful time. The trip was well planned with many points of interest and historical sites. There was also enough leisure time to do what you wanted to do including sightseeing and shopping in the Christmas Markets. Our bus driver and travel guide were great. They were very knowledgeable and spent plenty of time with us. I will be traveling with them again. It would be a wonderful experience if you could join them on one of the trips. I’m sure you will enjoy your as much as I enjoyed mine..”

    Gayle Shapiro- “My recent Craftours trip to Germany & Austria was wonderful; definitely exceeded expectations. A great and accommodating guide who made sure all of our needs were satisfied. But perhaps the biggest surprise was how much I enjoyed the interaction with all of the other travelers in our group. Getting to know so many people from different places and walks of life was one of the best aspects of the trip! Sure would love to go to Tuscany…”

    Denise Corley- “I went to Germany, Switzerland and Austria with Craftours a few years ago which was a dream of a lifetime. I can still remember how I felt looking at the Alps in Lucerne and thinking to myself how incredibly fortunate I was to be on this trip, with a wonderful group of women, a great tour leader and to be seeing one of the most beautiful sights I had ever seen. I was a bit concerned to be traveling alone, but with Craftours, I met some great friends and felt totally safe and well cared for. I will undoubtedly travel again with Craftours. Thanks for a wonderful experience.”

      With the Covid virus still a major issue, worldwide- what is the cancellation policy if it's still a major health issue next year?

    3. Ian Lawrence

      Obviously, this trip is for the American folks but can us Europeans join up with you? I'm English but now reside in The Netherlands.
