Discover the rich traditions, medieval heritage and distinct cultures of the northern Alps in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Enjoy stays in Oberstaufen, Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Salzburg and Munich as you traverse untrammeled countryside to quaint towns, pure lakes and baroque cities set against lofty mountain peaks.

Cruise on Lake Constance to Lindau with its delightfully storybook setting, and witness a legendary monastic library in St. Gallen. Visit historic Innsbruck, nestled in the lap of the Austrian Alps, and revel in a remarkable decennial performance of Oberammergau’s legendary Passion Play with a cast of some 2,500 residents.

From the cultural heart of Munich to the celebrated landmarks of Salzburg, each day of this incredible journey offers unforgettable experiences that will fill your heart with joy and provide a cultural immersion like no other.
