    Full Day: Munich and Oktoberfest

    As Bavaria’s capital city, Munich is bursting with amazing things to do. Munich is also the third-largest city in Germany and is known for its mixture of architectural styles, such as medieval, baroque and renaissance, as well as modern architectural styles, and is filled with historic churches, fascinating museums, beautiful palaces and more.

    During our trip to Munich, we’ll be accompanied by an experienced guide, and tell us more about the city’s history. We’ll have time to visit the much-anticipated Oktoberfest, where we can indulge in some delicious Bavarian cuisine, such as wurstl, sauerkraut, weisswurst and schweinshaxe.

    OPTIONAL EXCURSIONS


    Innsbruck
    Full Day: Innsbruck

    Innsbruck is a wonderful city and is, in fact, the capital city of Tyrol. Its placement in a valley means it features excellent scenery, with high mountains on all sides. This Alpine scenery makes the city even more mesmerising, but there’s a lot more to see in the city besides its views. 

    For instance, while at leisure in Innsbruck, you may choose to visit some of the many attractions the city has to offer, such as Ambras Castle, the Rococo-style Helblinghaus and, opposite it, the iconic Goldenes Dachl, which many see as Innsbruck’s symbol. This building features thousands of fire-gilded copper tiles that account for its name, which can be translated as ‘Golden Roof’. It was built for Emperor Maximilian I when he married Bianca Maria Sforza in 1500.

    St Annes Column
    Innsbruck Guided Walking Tour
    To learn more about Innsbruck, and to take in even more of the splendid sights, we’ll also be able to join an optional guided walking tour of the city. This will give us greater insight into Innsbruck’s history, and will allow us to tour more of the city.
    Lake Achensee
    Lake Achen Cruise

    Our ride on the Achensee Railway will bring us to the beautiful Lake Achen, the largest lake in Tyrol. This picturesque alpine lake is always popular, and we’ll be able to enjoy an optional cruise to soak up the splendid scenery and relax in the pleasant atmosphere.
