WELCOME TO PRAGUE

DAY 1 - fairytale castles & gothic architecture

Prague is the capital of the Czech Republic and has a population of 1.2 million people. Being a former Soviet Bloc country, the highlights and gothic architecture have really only been uncovered for the last 20 years or so. Between the incredibly ornate castles, churches, and cobblestone streets, this is a traveler’s paradise. Part of what makes Prague so unique is its beauty during the daytime, but the night is just as grand. At night in Prague, the majority of the bars and clubs are open until nearly sunrise.

Whether you're signed up to enjoy the nightlife, or bask in the culture and history of Prague, you're in for a real treat after your arrival. Your pick up from the Prague airport (PRG) will be paid for, and the group will enjoy a walking tour after check-in to our accommodations, followed by a group dinner to start off our adventure.

You'll be attending the opening weekend of 'Springfest' tomorrow. In the meantime, you're going to get an education and tour of Munich. From the beer to the origins of World War 2, you're going to see this innovative, forward-thinking city the right way: on a beer walking tour.

munich's second biggest beer drinking festival - springfest

april 26, 2019

day 6.jpg

DAY 6 - welcome to fruhlingsfest - a.k.a. springfest

'Springfest' (or Frühlingsfest, if you want the true name) is Oktoberfest’s little sister, but with less crowds and WAY better weather. If you've been to Oktoberfest before, chances are you're going to like Springfest EVEN BETTER. Bavarian history states that on October 12, 1810, a wedding between Prince Ludwig and Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen took place, and all of Munich’s citizens were invited to celebrate.

An everlasting supply of beer rained into happy German throats, and Oktoberfest was born. But then the locals couldn’t wait for another one to come around — thus, Springfest. Located in the center of Munich, on the same fairgrounds as Oktoberfest, you'll be escorted to the drinking tents and will have free roam of the day!

Avg. temp in Munich in April = 57 F / 14 C

Fun fact: Springfest is like Oktoberfest, but with less crowds, way better weather, and is much cheaper to attend. 

Included:

  • Breakfast
  • Optional morning workout
  • Walk to fairgrounds
  • Your first stein at Springfest
  • Free day to roam and explore
  • Potential for some blurred (but fond) memories

NEUSCHWANSTEIN CASTLE

april 27, 2019

day 7 neuschwanstein .jpg

DAY 7 - the home of king ludwig II. neuschwanstein castle.

Day 7 kicks off with an included day trip to Neuschwanstein Castle, located about an hour away from Munich. This fairytale castle originally spawned the idea for Walt Disney's famous castle at Disney World’s Magic Kingdom. This gem is located on a steep mountain pass in the heart of Bavaria. With an included ticket and guided tour, you'll spend 2-3 hours touring this amazingly ornate castle.

King Ludwig II commissioned the castle in 1868, just two years after Austria and Bavaria were conquered by Prussia. More than 1.5 million people tour the castle every year. After returning to Munich, you'll have free time to participate in an optional workout, or head back to the Springfest tents to enjoy a few more rounds. Group dinner, optional workout are also included. 

FYI - If you wish to skip Neuschwanstein and want to have a second day at Springfest, you are more than welcome to!

Avg. temp at Neuschwanstein Castle in April = 46 F / 7 C

Fun fact: Despite it's medieval look, Neuschwanstein Castle was finished in the 19th century, served no defensive purposes, and has no throne room due to King Ludwig II dying before its completion. This castle also served as the inspiration for Disney World's famous castle.

Included:

  • Breakfast at hotel
  • Transportation to Neuschwanstein Castle
  • Guided tour of Neuschwanstein
  • Transportation back to Munich
  • Optional workout
  • Group dinner

dachau concentration camp & depart home from munich

april 28, 2019

konzentrationslager-1530190_1920.jpg

DAY 1 - fairytale castles & gothic architecture

Part of Munich's history eclipses the dark days of World War 2. As amazing and colorful as Munich is today, Germans in the area have not forgotten about the atrocities committed during World War 2. Instead of ignoring the past, they have accepted what has happened, and use it as a learning tool to educate tourists flocking to Munich. The Dachau Concentration Camp is one of those places the Germans have left open for visitors to come, view, and learn from.

As Hitler's first concentration camp, Dachau initially housed political prisoners. However, it eventually became a death camp where hundreds of of thousands of Jews died from malnutrition, disease, or execution. It serves as a dark place, and is a stark contrast to the tents of Springfest, but it's definitely worth experiencing. This will be provided as an optional tour before your afternoon departure from the Munich airport.

You may also just stay in Munich, and use the morning for one last bout of exploration before heading on home!

Avg. temp at Dachau in April = 57 F / 12 C

Fact: More than 32,000 people lost their lives at Dachau as prisoners. 'Selfies' at the camp are not allowed.

Included: 

  • Breakfast
  • Optional workout
  • Transportation to Dachau
  • Guided tour of Dachau
  • Transportation back to Munich
  • Free time to explore
  • Ticket back to the airport
  • A big hug goodbye!
