8.30 am - 6 pm / 9.5 hours
You are picked up at your Munich hotel, and go south to Bavaria to
Garmisch and the Zugspitze, which at almost 10,000 feet is Germany's
highest mountain. In fine weather the Zugspitze has a matchless panorama
at the top of the Alps. The fact that there are three ways up to the top
is testimony to the Zugspitze is a popular year round destination (we
take one of the two cable cars). Have a hot chocolate or mail your
postcards from the top of Germany!
Then we return to the Olympic town of Garmisch, Germany's No. 1
winter sports resort, with a beautiful historic centre. There will be time to
enjoy the city center before heading back north to stop in at Ettal,
which boasts one of the finest monasteries in the Alpine region. You
will have time to visit the Basilica, which was founded by Emperor
Ludwig the Bavarian in 1330. Ettal is also well known for its beer,
cheese and liquor, and you will have the chance to sample these before
we are head back to your Munich hotel.
If the weather prevents a trip up to the Zugspitze then we will add a
visit the beautiful Passion Play village of Oberammergau.
This mountain town is known for its house frescos (Lueftl painting), woodcarvers,
and Christmas shops. You have free time to explore a bit on your own, do a
little shopping, or warm your bones with a hot drink in one of the
quaint local inns.
