Best of Berlin & Munich
Two sides of Germany
Discover two wholly different German cities on this vacation. Start off in progressive and cosmopolitan Berlin, home to the remains of the Berlin Wall, Brandenberg Gate and countless other sites. Then make your way to laidback Munich, famous for its beer halls and lederhosen!
- Take the perfect selfie at the East Side Gallery, the longest remaining part of the Berlin Wall and now the world’s longest open-air gallery.
- On Sundays, visit Berlin’s eclectic Mauerpark flea market; shop homemade goods, handmare wares, and maybe pick up an antique piece or two!
- Enjoy a picnic at Berlin’s abandoned WWII Airport Templehof, which now serves as a six-acre public park!
- Treat yourself to a boot filled with locally-brewed beer at Hofbräuhaus, one of Munich’s oldest beer halls – dating back to 1589.
- Get the royal treatment on a tour of Neuschwanstein, which was the inspiration for the castle featured in Disney’s Sleeping Beauty.
Your adventure in Deutschland starts with three nights in vibrant Berlin, where history, art, and culture await at every corner. Explore the landmarks of WWII, walk along the longest part of the Berlin Wall, discover works of art in hidden alleyways, shop eclectic flea markets, and indulge in great beer and local art along the way. Your 48-hour hop-on/hop-off pass makes it easy to see the sights without the stress.
Spend nights taking advantage of Berlin’s one-of-a-kind nightlife! Rub elbows with the locals at the city’s famous beach bars, enjoy a scenic river cruise along the river Spree, or try your luck at Berghain, Berlin’s famous club known for its notoriously strict door policy.
After a comfortable ride on the German rail, arrive in Munich, the unofficial capital of Germany’s Bavaria region and home to the world-famous Oktoberfest celebration. Enjoy access to a 24-hour hop-on/hop-off bus one day, then be the star of your own fairytale the next with your Royal Castles tour.
