Itinerary

Description

Join us for a captivating journey to eastern Germany, an area that has seen huge change in the post war years. We discover the infamous prisoner of war camp at Colditz Castle, and experience two of Europe’s greatest cultural cities; lively Dresden and the atmospheric capital city of Berlin, both of which have now returned to their former glory.

Coach Itinerary

Day 1
Ferry to Calais and overnight stay in Germany.

Day 2 – Möhne Dam & Weimar
Travel onwards to our overnight hotel, stopping en-route at the famous Dambusters’ Möhne Dam and the historic city of Weimar.

Day 3 – Dresden via Colditz Castle
We continue our journey, stopping en-route to visit Colditz Castle. Situated on a rocky outcrop above the River Mulde, this fortress is most famous for becoming a prisoner of war camp during WWII for high-profile Allied officers who had repeatedly escaped from other camps. We learn more of its fascinating and notorious history on our guided tour and see some of the escape tunnels built by prisoners as well as the rooms where they were kept.

Afterwards, we continue on to our hotel in Dresden where we stay for the next three nights. 

Day 4 – Dresden
The lovely city of Dresden is situated on the River Elbe. Heavily bombed during the Second World War, many important historic buildings were rebuilt including the Zwinger Palace, the Semper Opera House and, more recently, the beautiful domed Frauenkirche (Church of our Lady), bringing the city landscape back to its former glory. We enjoy some of the sights on our guided tour followed by free time at leisure in the city.

Day 5 – Day at leisure in Dresden


Day 6 – Berlin via Potsdam
Leaving Dresden, we head to Berlin stopping en-route in Potsdam. This charming city is best known for its magnificent palaces and parks that date back to its time as the former royal seat of Prussia. These include the stunning Sanssouci Palace, the former summer palace of Frederick the Great.

Later we check in to our hotel in Berlin, our base for the next three nights.

Day 7 – Berlin
Few cities have experienced so much change in recent years as Germany’s capital city of Berlin. Once divided, now reunited, the city is full of contrasts with a variety of historical and modern attractions. We enjoy a guided city tour which covers some of the most important sights including the Brandenburg Gate, a former symbol of the divided city. After our tour, we have time at leisure in the city.
