You are picked up at your Munich hotel, and go south to Bavaria to
Garmisch where we take a cable car up to the Zugspitze,
at almost 10,000 feet Germany's highest mountain, with a matchless
panorama. Time for hot chocolate, mailing postcards from the top of
Germany, a snowball fight and border crossing on foot!
Return to Garmisch, host of the 1936 Winter Olympics
and Germany's No. 1 winter sport resort, with a beautiful historic
centre. Take the time to
walk down any street and you will be amazed at the paintings on the
outside of the homes. The Bavarians have a long history of decorating
the exteriors of their houses and businesses with both religious and
historic paintings. The structure of the homes are also amazing. In
spring and summer you can enjoy beautiful flowers trellising down off
the picturesque balconies.
Free time to enjoy, before we are heading north again, with another
stop in Ettal where you have time to visit the
Basilica, which was founded by Emperor Ludwig the Bavarian in 1330, and
became one of the most important Benedictine Monasteries of the Alpine
Try the well known Ettal beer, cheese or liquor before we are head
back to your Munich hotel.
