DAY 3 BERLIN–DRESDENArrive in Dresden, the former capital of Saxony. Badly damaged by Allied bombing in February 1945, the city has since been restored to its baroque splendour. During your orientation, see the Zwinger Palace COURTYARD with its impressive architecture; the magnificent baroque Semper Opera, originally built in 1841—first destroyed by fire, then destroyed by bombing, and finally restored in 1985. Also, see the newly rebuilt Frauenkirche.
DAY 4 DRESDEN–ROTHENBURGArrive in Rothenburg for an overnight stay in this magical medieval town, with its ramparts and towers, cobblestone lanes, and 16th-century houses. Enjoy an orientation walk and hear how the town survived the Thirty Years’ War. Perhaps, shop for Christmas ornaments.
DAY 5 ROTHENBURG–AUGSBURG–MUNICHDrive south through Bavaria to the city of Augsburg. During your guided sightseeing see the cathedral, the Rathausplatz, and the Perlach Tower, the city’s most famous landmarks. The highlight is a visit to the TOWN HALL with its baroque Golden Hall. An interesting visit to the Fuggerei has also been included. A city within the city, the Fuggerei was founded almost 500 years ago by Jakob Fugger the Rich as a housing complex for needy Augsburgers, and it has been in continuous operation fulfilling its mission since that time. Here, in the oldest social housing complex in the world, visitors experience a fascinating journey through history—and the normal everyday life of its current residents. Continue to the Bavarian capital Munich.
