Your Holiday Itinerary - Classic Germany

By Coach

Day 1: UK to Belgium

Relax aboard your Grand Tourer coach as we cross to Calais, with a meal voucher included for an early dinner on board, then continue on to Belgium for our first overnight stay. (D)

Day 2: Belgium to Berlin

Today we head east to Germany’s cosmopolitan capital city, Berlin, which celebrated 25 years of reunification in 2015. We spend three nights at the four-star Park Inn Alexanderplatz Hotel - why not visit the hotel’s rooftop or visit the nearby TV Tower to enjoy views of the city? (B,D)

Day 3: Berlin

An informative guided city tour in the morning introduces you to the main highlights of this fascinating city, including the impressive Brandenburg Gate, Kurfurstendamm Boulevard, the Reichstag parliament building and infamous Checkpoint Charlie. Enjoy time at leisure, then this evening you may choose to join our optional visit to the Reichstag. (B,D)

Day 4: Berlin

Enjoy a free day to explore the interesting city of Berlin at your own pace, or join our optional excursion to lovely Potsdam and Sanscoucci Palace, the summer residence of the Prussian Royal family. (B,D)

Day 5: Berlin to Dresden

Our Grand Tour takes us on to Leipzig today, a city which is perhaps best known as home to the St Thomas Church, where legendary composer Johann Sebastian Bach was choirmaster. We then travel to the infamous Colditz Castle, set high on a clifftop and renowned for its role as a maximum security prisoner of war camp during World War II. We then continue onwards to historical Dresden, where we enjoy a two-night stay at the centrally located four-star Pullman Newa Hotel. (B,D)

Day 8: Kassel to Belgium

We travel to the dramatic Mohne Dam in the Nord Rhine-Westphalia region of Germany, now a popular tourist attraction. This artificial lake was famously the target of the ‘bouncing bombs’ during the World War II Dambusters raid. We then continue to Belgium, where we enjoy dinner on arrival at our overnight hotel.
