3 NIGHTS MUNICH & 3 NIGHTS BERLIN
Lederhosen, Oktoberfest, polka dancing, beer, Bavarian pretzels, sauerkraut…yep, Germany is waiting, and Monograms is ready to take you on vacation to two of Germany’s greatest cities: Munich & Berlin! This vacation package includes hotel reservations at centrally located hotels, buffet breakfast daily, sightseeing with local experts, transportation, and connection between the cities. Plus, in both cities you’ll have the services of a Monograms Local Host®, an insider who will help you personalize your vacation and make sure it runs smoothly. With Monograms, all you have to do is show up ready to have fun!
Your vacation starts as soon as you arrive in Munich, where we can whisk you from the airport to your hotel. Your Local Host will meet you at your hotel with a welcome packet and suggestions for your vacation. The next morning, after enjoying included breakfast, your guided sightseeing with a local expert includes VIP-skip the lines visit to BMW World and Nymphenburg Palace’s park. Watch the world-famous Glockenspiel, which recreates a royal wedding from the 16th century, and explore its most famed square, Marienplatz. In Berlin, visit the Holocaust Memorial and Brandenburg Gate, built in 1791 as a monument to peace. Berlin has a tumultuous past, and your local expert guide can share inside stories only locals would know. On the third day in each city, you have time to explore on your own or take advantage of the excursions and activities offered by Monograms. In Munich, perhaps visit the Residenz Museum, the former royal palace of the Wittelsbach family; enjoy a beer in one of the beer gardens; take an excursion to the famous Neuschwanstein and Linderhof Castles; and shop for a beer stein or cuckoo clock. In Berlin, perhaps take a tour of Jewish Berlin; shop at KaDeWe, Europe’s largest department store; or take an excursion to Potsdam, where the Prussian Kings spent their summer. Whatever you do, be sure to ask your Local Hosts for their favorite haunts to grab one of the famous German beers.
While we haven’t included beer in your package, we have included daily buffet breakfast. Plus, the local expertise, the VIP access, and the escape from logistics hassles, giving you the vacation of a lifetime. You’ll enjoy yourself so much that you’ll be hesitant to say “Auf Wiedersehen”to this great country.
