Germany: West & East

June 24, 2013  -  July 2, 2013

The groups are crossing the Atlantic toward Frankfurt, the starting point of our Germany: West and East tour, which will take us through all the different facets of German society and culture. We'll see the quaint walled cities, remnants of the Middle Ages; 19th Century castles built by kings obsessed with the Middle Ages; pulsing modern metropolises crowded around ancient city centers; scars of the devastating events of the 20th Century; and the unique way that Germany has overcome and synthesized its split personalities and troubled past into a magnificent modern nation. Tomorrow: Heidelberg!
