Day 1: Romantic Road (Harburg Castle + Dinkelsbühl + Rothenburg ob der Tauber)
Your private guide will pick you up at your Munich hotel or your preferred location to start the tour.
First, we drive to Harburg Castle, looming over the Wörnitz River. The medieval covered parapets, towers, turrets, keep, and red-tiled roofs of the 12th-century. Schloss Harburg is so perfectly preserved they almost seem like a film set.
Then, we continue the Romantic Road to immaculately preserved Dinkelsbühl. Proudly traces its roots to a royal residence founded by Carolingian kings in the 8th century. Saved from destruction in the Thirty Years War and ignored by WWII bombers, this is arguably the Romantic Road’s quaintest and most authentically medieval art.
Time for lunch. Afterward, we head to the jewel of the Romantic Road Rothenburg ob der Tauber, one of Europe’s best-preserved medieval cities. Despite being on the wrong side of the 30 Years War, the city escaped damage but was driven into poverty. And since there was no money for development, the town was preserved. Hotel and dinner in Rothenburg.
Day 2: Drive to Füssen (Neuschwanstein + Linderhof + Oberammergau
After breakfast, we drive to Füssen. Time to visit the fairy tale castle (Neuschwanstein Castle), the most visited castle in south Germany. First, we take the shuttle to Mary’s Bridge (Marienbrücke) for some magnificent pictures “as long as the bridge is open, and the shuttle bus is operating”. Then, we walk to Neuschwanstein Castle (was the inspiration for Disney castle). Afterward, from the castle’s foot, we take a horse carriage to Hohenschwangau village.
(With Skip the Line service, you don’t have to worry about waiting for hours to get tickets or the tour it is sold out when you arrive).
Time to grab some lunch before we head to visit the famous Wieskirche (the church in the meadow). Wieskirche or Wies Church is one of the most important places of pilgrimage in southern Germany.
Afterward, we drive to the picturesque village of Oberammergau where is the original Passion Play in 1634 started and famous for the wood carving and House paintings, and more. Hungry?! Time for a very traditional German dinner, overnight at Füssen hotel.
Day 3: Swarovski Crystal World + Innsbruck and back to Munich
After breakfast, we leave Bavaria for Innsbruck, the capital of Tyrol. Amidst the charming Old Town, a classic Austrian hybrid of Gothic and Baroque. Explore, with your guide, Innsbruck’s greatest tourist attraction and certainly its most characteristic landmark, The Golden Roof.
Innsbruck’s Old Town is a small area of sturdy medieval houses, many attractively painted in pastel colors and supported by sloping earthquake buttresses.
Time for lunch. Afterward, we drive shortly to The Swarovski Crystal Worlds in Wattens. It is a mystic and mysterious place. An incredible fairy tale kingdom of crystal created by the renowned artist André Heller. Awaits the visitor within the “Giant”. This world of art at the majestic Alpine mountains of Tyrol is famous all over the world and attracts countless visitors every year. Experience the spectacular exhibitions with extraordinary exhibits at 4,000 sqm.
We return to Munich in the late afternoon
We enjoyed a great time, thank you for making our trip so special. Very good service, outstanding guide, and excellent hotels choices. We highly recommend this company and looking forward to having another trip with them again.
New Years Holiday 2019
Where do I begin? We are a family of 4 with our kids in college. We planned a new year trip to Germany, Prague, and Austria. Amir started our 4-day adventure in Austria, then on to Zugspitze, the next day was touring the castles, and ended on the final day touring the Romantic Road. The trip was more than I could ever expect and made memories that will last a lifetime. Amir was an excellent guide, and we felt like he was a member of our family after 4 days. We had to brave more than one snowstorm, but it actually added to the excitement of our trip. From the breathtaking views at Zugspitze to the Church in the Meadow, every day was filled with so many new things to see. He took us to some great food spots, and we enjoyed the chocolate shop and the pretzels on the Romantic Road. If you are considering a tour with Amir, DO NOT think twice. He is knowledgeable, fun, a gentleman, and will do everything in his power to make your tour an experience you will not forget. Thanks, Amir, for everything! Some day we hope to be back in Bavaria and will be calling you.
A simply incredible six day trip in Bavaria and Switzerland with Amir of Special Private Tours. Amir planned our pre-Rhine Cruise trip to our exact desires down to the fabulous dinners and was beyond a gracious host. He is a man of incredible integrity and is simply a joy to spend time with.
Our journey began with a tour of Dachau and Old Town Munich with a beer and dinner at Hofbrauhaus. The Dachau experience is difficult and the feelings one experiences are hard to put into words, but I think the world would be a better place if everyone visited a concentration camp.
The Romantic Road day had us visiting the medieval Harburg castle and two lovely walled medieval cities. If you desire to see a true medieval city, Rothenburg is the place. It is absolutely like a being in a fairytale.
Next up was Neuschwanstein and The Wieskirche church. Both are stunning and a must see in Bavaria. No wonder Walt Disney used Neuschwanstein as the basis for his Fairytale Castles. Later we made the drive into Switzerland- yes it is expensive and worth every penny!
We enjoyed visiting the Chillon Castle on Lake Geneva as well as the beautiful Lucern area. The highlight of the trip though was the Lauterbrunnen Valley with its 72 waterfalls and dramatic cliffs. This may be the biblical Eden – words can’t describe its beauty. We visited the Trümmelbach waterfalls inside the mountain and took the train to Jungfraujoch, the top of Europe from Lauterbrunnen. If you can only visit one place in Switzerland – Lauterbrunnen would be my recommendation. All of Switzerland is worthwhile and beautiful, but Lauterbrunnen is over the top. Our final night Amir booked us in the best room with the only double window and an incredible view of the Chapel Bridge at the Hotel Des Alpes – just another perk of booking with Special Private Tours as I am certain securing the room is not easy with everyone desiring to see the iconic bridge. PS – the picture of the Chapel Bridge is from our hotel room
Don’t hesitate to book with Special Private Tours as Amir truly is special. For instance, we had a day of rain that would make our planned visit to Jungfraujoch less than desirable. Amir surprised us by adjusting our schedule to take us to the Chillon Castle adding 350 km driving for himself and the expense of the castle – then made sure we had time to do Jungfraujoch the next day. Never once did he request additional pay or insist we take the tour as originally planned. That is service one does not often receive!
We definitely came as a tourist, yet left as friends. Amir, you are simply the best – See You Soon.
