Day 3

Munich - Oberammergau, Germany - Passion Play

Travel to the quaint village of Oberammergau. This afternoon, witness a performance of the epic Passion Play. The original performance dates back to 1634. During the Thirty Year War, Oberammergau was spared the Black Plague and for this reason, the citizens vowed that every ten years they would give a play to honor the last days of the life of Christ. The performers of this once-in-a-decade event are all native to the village. To lend authenticity to the performance, the cast starts to grow their hair and beards more than a year in advance. During a break of the performance, join your fellow travelers for dinner before returning for the remainder of your Passion Play performance.

Day 4

Oberammergau - Linderhof Palace - Fussen - Innsbruck, Austria

Begin your day with a visit to Linderhof Palace, one of the most artistic and stylistically complex ensembles of the 19th century. It is the only palace King Ludwig II of Bavaria was able to complete. Behind the Baroque façade is a Rococo world, rich in abundant ornamentation, with many sculptural elements showing workmanship of an incomparable artistic quality. Next, enjoy free time to explore medieval Fussen, the romantic town in the foothills of the Bavarian Alps. Make a special picture stop at Neuschwanstein Castle before continuing on to Innsbruck.

Explore such medieval treasures as the covered Chapel Bridge (1833); the famous Water Tower which has served as a prison, watchtower and treasury; the Renaissance-style Town Hall; the Baroque Jesuit Church; and the Lion Monument, carved from natural rock to commemorate the heroic Swiss Guard.

Transportation Security Administration's Guidelines for Checking Luggage:

Customers are urged to leave their checked luggage unlocked, which will avoid the potential need for Transportation Security Administration (TSA) personnel to forcibly open bags that require further inspection.  Plastic zip ties or cable ties may be used if desired.

 

Customers are asked to:

  • NOT pack food or beverages in checked bags

  • Pack footwear on top of other contents

  • Put personal belongings in clear plastic bags to reduce chances of TSA Screeners having to handle them

  • Spread out - NOT stack - books

  • Leave gifts unwrapped should screening require them to be opened

  • Put scissors, pocket knives and other sharp items in checked luggage

  • Put film in carry-on bag because screening equipment will damage undeveloped film

  • Avoid over-packing your bag so that the screener will be able to easily reseal your bag if it is opened for inspection
