In Oberammergau, watch a decennial performance of the Passion Play. Stroll through vibrant Munich and enjoy a traditional lunch in a beer garden. Cruise the Bodensee, also called Lake Constance, shared by all three countries, and discover the charm of Lindau, the island city off the German shore. Visit Innsbruck in the Austrian Alps, and stroll through Mozart’s Salzburg, where an evening is devoted to a concert of the genius composer’s best-known arias.
