    INCLUDED EXCURSIONS


    Nuremberg
    Medieval Nuremberg
    A city fit for a king; don’t miss this opportunity to discover the undeclared capital of the Holy Roman Empire, where the beer is as dark as the coffee. The cityscape of Nuremberg, Bavaria’s second largest city, is dominated by the stunning castle, a mighty fortress built in 1140.
    Of course, Nuremberg is known for the German activities that took place here before and during the Second World War, and our guided city tour will touch on this important part of the city’s history.
    Our tour will take in the Nuremberg’s many highlights, so we can uncover the beautiful architecture and fascinating sights this city is so famous for. 
     
    Wurzburg
    Wurzburg and the Residenz Palace
    Join us for a guided tour of this wonderful city. Wurzburg is the capital of Lower Franconia and is one of the loveliest baroque cities in Germany, famous for being the centre of Franconian wine production. Wurzburg’s attractions are countless and it’s hard to believe that 90 per cent of the city was devastated in an air raid lasting 20 minutes on the 2nd of March 1945. In a miraculous rebuilding programme, nearly every major structure has been restored.
    One of Wurzburg’s famous landmarks is the mighty fortress, Festung Marienberg, which sits on the hillside overlooking the city. We explore the Old Town on foot – we see the market square, the late-Gothic Church of St. Mary, and next to it is the Falkenhaus with its beautiful Rococo facade. Another highlight is the four-towered Wurzburg Cathedral St.Kilian, which is one of the largest Romanesque churches in Germany.
    We continue to the impressive Residenz Palace. The former residence of the Wurzburg prince bishops and one of the most important baroque palaces in Europe, today it’s on UNESCO's World Heritage list. The Palace, known as the ‘Castle above all Castles’, was built from 1720 – 1744 and was based on a design by Balthasar Neumann. The building masterfully combines not only the various German Baroque styles, but also French Chateau architecture and the imperial baroque style of Vienna, the result being a highly individual and distinctive style. The highlight of the Palace is the interior decor, especially the ceiling frescos in the Imperial Hall and above the staircase.
