Mythical Germany

Mythical Germany special tour offer

2020: 25 June - 17 July & 3 - 25 September

Breathe life into legends

Get to know many places which established Germany's reputation as a mythical destination. Mostly far away from buzzing tourist trails you'll be able to catch the real and strong heartbeat of Germany's history and legends. Experience a warm welcome and enjoy the hospitality of our destinations, famous for culinary delights, wineries and hundreds of breweries.

You will...

… discover castles and palaces which inspired the construction of Neuschwanstein castle. You will find out why Mark Twain wrote: "Germany, in the summer, is the perfection of the beautiful, but nobody has understood, and realized, and enjoyed the utmost possibilities of this soft and peaceful beauty unless he has voyaged down the Neckar (river)”.

You will breathe in the spirit of the Brothers Grimm's (see Jacob and Wilhelm in our picture) collection of folklore while visiting their original settings and Snow White's alleged birthplace. Travel the state of Franconia, also called “Germany in miniature”. Meet knights, see where Richard the Lionheart was imprisoned and stroll through places where time seems to stand still. And you will acknowledge that even the best stagecraft could not compete against the real thing for the filming of Eco's “The Name of the Rose”. You will also explore several UNESCO World Heritage Sites reflecting milestones on Germany's timeline such as the Roman, medieval and baroque eras. But don't forget the simple pleasure of driving these narrow, winding, tree-shaded country roads through the states of Baden-Württemberg, Hessia, Franconia, Bavaria and the Rhineland-Palatinate.

“In ancient tales many marvels are told us...”. This is the famous opening of the Nibelungenlied (Song of the Nibelungs) from around 1200. Let us rediscover marvels.
