Fabulous Landscapes of Germany

Germany is a country full of interesting sites, rich culture, vibrant cities, stunning historical architecture, sprawling alps, winding rivers, lush valleys and elegant castles. Here are some attractions that you get to visit when you join our July 2020 tour.

Neuschwanstein Castle, Fussen

Neuschwanstein is an impressive fairytale-like castle that inspired Walt Disney to create his most famous park, Magic Kingdom. Surrounded by sweeping valleys, towering mountains and beautiful lakes, Neuschwanstein is best viewed from Marienbrücke, or Mary’s Bridge — a bridge over the Pöllat Gorge that offers stunning views of the castle and the scenery around it. The name Neuschwanstein means ‘New Swan Castle’ and was inspired by a famous 19th-century opera, Lohengrin.

Heidelberg Schloss, Heidelberg

Though now in ruins, Heidelberger Schloss (Heidelberg Castle) remains an impressive structure that can be seen from nearly anywhere in Heidelberg. Nestled in the rich green forest of the Königstuhl hillside, some 80 metres from the rest of the city, the castle can be reached by funicular railway or by stairs. Once at the top, soak in the views of the city below (including the Neckar River and the Old Bridge), take in the impressive Renaissance architecture, and roam the castle’s gardens.
