Castles & Pop Culture
Castles of Germany & Austria • June 16 - 25, 2020
Tour Code: KGS20
“The castle looming high above the flowing river served as a beacon for the weary traveler, a vantage point to survey the landscape, and a symbol of the kingdoms strength.” We’ll tour some of Europe’s most impressive castles, each a representation of the small kingdoms that once made up the map of the region we call Germany and Austria. We’ll see strong, imposing castles built of massive grey stones, and lacey palaces filled with filigree and gold designs. Along the way, we’ll also learn about the king of German vehicles, the Mercedes-Benz. We’ll hear the music of Mozart in his hometown and explore the cities and villages that have grown up in the castles’ shadows. Join us to explore your royal tendencies. (Note: This is a small group tour ~ 15 Passengers)
