You will be met at the airport and taken to the group hotel on the Munich Metro. Meetups at the airport will occur every 3 hours throughout the day. Spend the day relaxing at the hotel and/or exploring the city. Today is a chance to get caught up on sleep and adjusting to the time zone. We'll meet up later that night for a welcome get together. 09/23/18 (Sunday) - Munich City Tour With our local guide we'll begin our Munich city tour on Marienplatz (Mary’s Square), located in the center of the city and home to the most famous Glockenspiel in the world. We then head through the medieval heart of Munich admiring the simple beauty of the Frauenkirche whose twin towers dominate the city's skyline before hearing tales of the Bavarian royal family, the turbulent 20th century and the early days of the Nazi Party. Of course no visit would be complete without discussing why beer matters so much to Bavarians and why it tastes so good - there's even time to see the world's most famous beer hall. You'll discover a vibrant, historic city center that combines modernity and proud traditions with one of the highest qualities of life in Europe. 09/24/18 (Monday) - Nuremberg We'll take an hour long train ride to Nuremberg where we'll have a city tour with our local guide. Highlights in the Old Town include the city walls, Craftsmen's Court, St Lawrence Church, Marketplace with the Beautiful Fountain and Wishing Ring, Old Town Hall, Albrecht-Dürer-Platz and the Imperial Castle Courtyards. We'll enjoy an afternoon lunch at Bratwurst Roslein (https://www.bratwurst-roeslein.de/de/) followed by a tour of the historic rock-cut cellars (https://www.historische-felsengaenge.de/en/), home for centuries to the cellars where the city's traditional red beer ripened. After our day in Nuremberg is over we'll take the hour long train ride back to Munich. 09/25/18 (Tuesday) - Oktoberfest Tents Today we'll visit Thereisienwiese, home to the world's most famous Oktoberfest celebration. Please note that we'll try in advance to secure tickets to one of the beer tents but it can be extremely difficult to do so. We should know by June 2018 on the tickets. If we aren't able to secure a reservation in advance then we'll show up early to one of the tents. Our chances are great on a Tuesday to be able to enter one of the tents although we might have to split into smaller groups to do so. Your lunch entree as well as two drinks will be included. 09/26/18 (Wednesday) - FREE DAY Today is a free day to explore on your own or with your new friends that you've made. Head back to the Thereisienwiese to check out another beer tent, explore other areas of Munich, or even head out of town to explore another city in Germany. The choice is entirely yours. 09/27/18 (Thursday) - Salzburg We'll take in the picturesque countryside on our two hour train journey to visit the city of Salzburg, Austria. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the city is the birthplace of Mozart as well as the setting of The Sound of Music. On our full day excursion we'll enjoy a 2 hour walking tour of the old town center with a local guide. We'll take a stroll along the picturesque Salzach River, marvel at the beauty of the Mirabell Palace Gardens, and take in all of the other sites that make Salzburg such an amazing place to visit. We'll have some time in the afternoon to explore the city on your own before we take a two hour train journey back to Munich. 09/28/18 (Friday) - Neuschwanstein Castle Probably one of the most famous castles in the world and Walt Disney's inspiration for Cinderella Castle, Neuschwanstein Castle will be our destination today. Approximately a two hour train ride from Munich lies the city of Fussen where we'll take a short bus ride after we arrive to the base of the trail leading up to the castle. You need to be in shape to do the climb up but we'll see about getting a ride on the horse drawn carriages up to almost the top of the peak. There's still about a 10 minute climb at this point. We'll have a brief guided tour inside Neuschwanstein Castle and then some free time to explore the rest of the area directly surrounding it. Going home we'll do our trip in reverse with a quick bus ride to the train station in Fussen and then the two hour ride through the countryside back to Munich. 09/29/18 (Saturday) - Departure Day Today is our departure day and you're free to schedule your flight to leave any time during the day. Checkout from the hotel is at noon but they'll hold your bags if needed. You'll be provided with a train ticket on the Munich Metro to get back to the airport along with directions to do so. NOTES Depending on the size of our group, some of our activities will be part of a larger tour group. The hotel, activities, and/or their order may change and/or be cancelled due to circumstances beyond our control. In the event this happens, we will try our best to make similar accommodations or changes.

They are caused by the interaction of particles from the sun with the upper atmosphere near the North Pole.

Weight limit maximum is 240 lbs. - Route may change according to season and weather. 10/25/17 (Friday) - Blue Lagoon Visit What visit to Iceland would be complete without a visit to the famous Blue Lagoon, a not to be missed attraction. Nothing can be compared to the the unique experience to soak up the scenic beauty and enjoy breathing the clean, fresh air while relaxing in the warm geothermal seawater. 10/28/17 (Saturday) - Departure Day, Hotel To Airport Transfer Checkout time is noon and we don't leave for Keflavík Airport until early afternoon so you have plenty of time to get in some last minute sightseeing and shopping. Final Trip Notes - Depending on the size of our group, some of our activities will be part of a larger public group excursion since a large motorcoach is the vehicle of choice in Iceland. - The hotel, activities, or their order may change and/or be cancelled to circumstances beyond our control.
