    INCLUDED EXCURSIONS


    Mainau Island
    Full Day: Meersburg and Mainau Island

    Meersburg is a charming German town, famous for its medieval city centre and beautiful architecture. Admire the town’s two castles, as well as its half-timbered houses and wonderful medieval town gates.

    We’ll enjoy a relaxing cruise from Meersburg across Lake Constance to visit the ‘Island of Flowers’, Mainau Island. Located in Lake Constance, this spectacular island has lovely gardens and parks that make it an incredibly peaceful place to visit. 

    St Gallen
    Full Day: St Gallen & Bregenz

    Journeying into Switzerland, we visit St Gallen, home to a charming old town and Abbey. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Abbey Cathedral of St Gall dates from the 9th century and features beautiful medieval renaissance architecture.

    Onwards from St Gallen, we make our way back across the border to Austria to visit Bregenz. This charming medieval city is located on Lake Constance, with amazing views to take in. Spend time exploring this excellent destination, with the opportunity to admire its local attractions.  

    OPTIONAL EXCURSIONS


    Neuschwanstein Castle
    Full Day: Fussen & Neuschwanstein
    Join us as we make our way to the town of Fussen, which is overlooked by the beautiful Neuschwanstein Castle. As though preserved in history, Fussen is quaintly traditional and has many attractions, some of which we’ll be able to explore while there. Admire sights such as St. Mang Basilica with its ancient fresco, and High Castle.

    From the town, we’ll head to magnificent Neuschwanstein Castle, which was created for ‘mad’ King Ludwig II of Bavaria in 1892.

    We’ll tour the castle, which has been seen in many films – it was even the basis for the famous Sleeping Beauty castle in Disneyland. As the castle was created as a retreat for King Ludwig, it was designed for his personal taste, rather than to represent the royal family.

    The castle was actually dedicated to the composer Richard Wagner, and we’ll be able to spot his inspiration throughout the castle’s architecture. Inside, many of the rooms have been furnished with period furniture, and the entire castle has been brilliantly well-preserved. 
    Vaduz Castle
    Half Day: Vaduz

    We’ll make our way to Liechtenstein to discover Vaduz, the microstate’s capital.

    Vaduz is famous for its Castle, which is visible from all locations in the city, as it’s situated atop a steep hill; it’s the residence of the current Prince of Liechtenstein. While the castle isn’t open to the public, there are many other attractions to busy ourselves with, such as the Cathedral of St. Florin and the City hall, which features two interesting architectural styles.
