Itinerary

Arrive in Berlin, the capital of Germany, where you are met and transferred to your hotel. This evening, gather for cocktails followed by a welcome dinner at a local restaurant. Stay: Hotel de Rome (D)

Discover historic Berlin, starting with a visit to the Reichstag Building, viewing panoramas of the city from its large glass dome. Stroll through Potsdamer Platz and stop at Checkpoint Charlie, a former border crossing between East and West Berlin. After lunch, step into the Boros Bunker for a privately guided viewing of the contemporary art collection housed in this former World War II air-raid shelter. Finish with a Scenic Sundowner overlooking the city, before dinner. Stay: Hotel de Rome (B/L/D)

Today, meet a local artist to learn about the history of the Berlin Wall at the iconic East Side Gallery, a series of murals painted on the longest section of wall still standing. Continue to a privately guided tour of the Stasi Museum to discover how East Germany's secret police exerted control over every aspect of society. Round out your experience with a complimentary pass to a range of other museums. Stay: Hotel de Rome (B)

Delve into the world of exquisite Meissen porcelain on a guided visit to the manufacturer's workshop that includes lunch and a private organ recital on their famous porcelain organ. Afterwards, drive to Proschwitz Castle for a guided walk of this medieval manor, exclusively opened for A&K guests, and savour a wine tasting in the castle's vineyards. Continue to Dresden, where you check in to your hotel before dinner. Stay: Gewandhaus Dresden (B/L/D)

Uncover the splendour of Dresden on a guided walk, starting with the Zwinger Complex, a historic Baroque-style palace built in 1728 for the Dresden Court. Visit the Dresden Frauenkirche, and then explore the New Green Vault, a museum in the Dresden Castle containing Europe's largest treasure collection. Eat lunch at the renowned Pfunds Dairy, followed by time at leisure to explore the city your way. Stay: Gewandhaus Dresden (B/L)

Depart for Munich, stopping en route in Leipzig for a guided walk revealing St. Thomas's Church, where the legendary composer Johann Sebastian Bach worked as music director for 27 years. Enjoy some time to explore on your own, and then Ride Like a Local by high-speed train to Munich. Arrive at your luxury hotel with time to relax before dinner. Stay: The Charles Hotel (B/D)

This morning, set out on a walking excursion to see why the city is a global centre of art, culture and architecture. Stroll through Marienplatz in the heart of Munich's Old Town and watch the famous Rathhaus-Glockenspiel as it displays its stories of 16th-century Bavarian culture. Marvel at the Frauenkirche cathedral's twin onion-style domes, and then, at lunchtime, set out for an extensive foodie tour to indulge in the best tastes of the region, such as schmalznudel (a Bavarian-style doughnut), sausages, local cheeses and beers. Later, on a Chef's Table experience, delight in a brewery visit and eat dinner in a traditional beer hall. Stay: The Charles Hotel (B/D)

Discover the fairy-tale landscape of southern Bavaria, exploring “Mad” King Ludwig's iconic Neuschwanstein Castle. Continue to the Alpine village of Oberammergau, strolling its charming streets to see the detailed, storytelling murals on its buildings. Return to Munich for an evening at your leisure.
