Itinerary

Day One

Fly to Berlin and transfer to your hotel. After check-in, head out for a first look at the city. Berlin's legendary, efficient U-Bahn (underground), trams and buses bring everything within easy reach - from the restored 18th-century Nikolaiviertel district to the courtyards of the ultra-trendy Hackesche Hofe market, full of shops, bars and restaurants.

Day Two

Get to know Berlin on this morning's guided tour. See the city's symbol of reunification - Norman Foster's startling Reichstag building - which rises close to the majestic Brandenburg Gate and the wooded acres of the Tiergarten. Stroll down Unter den Linden, past the great Staatsoper, towards Schlossplatz, and see beautiful Gendarmenmarkt - home to two stunning cathedrals and the city's new Konzerthaus.

Delve deeper into Berlin's turbulent past at the 'Checkpoint Charlie' museum, see the Olympic Stadium, or enjoy shopping your way down the famous 'Ku'damm'. There's simply an unending array of things to see and do.

Day Three

This morning we'll journey south across the Elbe to historic Leipzig. This former home of Goethe, Bach and Schiller, university seat, and vibrant trade-fair venue epitomises the new Germany. Visit Europe's oldest coffee-shop, or stroll through the arcades and courtyards of the city's Altstadt.

Later this afternoon, we'll continue to the pretty town of Colditz, overlooked by the iconic Renaissance castle turned WW2 POW camp. An included guided tour will bring to life tales of Allied ingenuity and escape, before you continue on to Dresden for a further two nights.

Day Four

Discover Dresden on this morning's guided tour. In the south bank's Altstadt, the stupendous Frauenkirche lay in ruins for almost 50 years after WW2, and the Residenzschloss (former seat of Saxon kings) still houses a priceless jewel collection. On the northern bank, leafy Neustadt and neighbouring Aussere Neustadt brim with life, and are also home to several fascinating museums.

Day Five

Say "auf Wiedersehen" to Dresden and Saxony, and transfer back to Berlin to board your flight home.

We did not meet with the tour manager until next morning at breakfast.No apologies made.

We enjoyed our trip, what we discover is that We would have liked to go to Colditz directly and not visit Leipzig.. most of the tourers were disappointed that we have Noy have a couple of hours there.. We will return again and spend a couple of days there as it’s such an interesting place.
