Included Excursions

En Route: Leipzig And Colditz Castle

While en route, we visit the beautiful city of Leipzig, home to the Nikolaikirche, the Church of St. Nicholas, which was the starting point of peaceful demonstrations against the communist regime which led to German Reunification.

During our time here, we also visit the infamous Colditz Castle, used as a workhouse and a mental institution for over 100 years; it gained international fame as a prisoner of war camp during World War II for Allied officers who had repeatedly escaped from other camps.

Half Day: Berlin including city tour

We’ll introduce you to the main attractions of this vibrant city, on our interesting guided tour. As we explore cosmopolitan Berlin today, it’s hard to imagine that until 1989 this city was divided, as the communist government built a wall to separate West Berlin from the rest of East Germany, with the crossing point ‘Checkpoint Charlie’ to prevent escape to the West part of the city. See landmarks including remnants of the Berlin Wall, the impressive Reichstag Parliament, poignant Checkpoint Charlie and the magnificent Brandenburg Gate.
