Explore Bavaria’s sublime landscapes on this captivating, seven-night journey based in a deluxe chalet-style hotel and spa in tranquil Oberstaufen. Amid the Allgäu region’s alpine splendor, ride a gondola up Mount Nebelhorn for stellar views and travel through the Walser valley into Austria to Breitach Gorge, one of central Europe’s deepest gorges.

Take in Lake Constance’s exquisite scenery on a cruise to Lindau, where you’ll be charmed by its colorful old town on an island. Journey to impressive landmarks, including the fairy-tale, hilltop Neuschwanstein Castle and the Abbey of St. Gall, a monastery complex and UNESCO World Heritage site featuring a beautiful baroque cathedral and library.

On this small-group adventure, learn about cherished customs and local life during visits to craft workshops, a farmers’ cooperative market, a family farm and a dairy in Appenzell, Switzerland. Enjoy a generous meal plan, including a Bavarian celebration in a traditional alpine hut complete with beer and music, and fondue on a Swiss mountaintop!
