Stunning Alpine vistas speckled with storybook castles and majestic palaces await us as we venture into the Bavarian and Austrian Alps, a region of both distinct culture and a diverse landscape. Starting in Salzburg, we marvel at the region’s remarkable musical heritage before venturing into the Bavarian Mountains to Hitler’s Eagle’s Nest high on a peak above Berchtesgaden. A world of wonder awaits us as we lose ourselves in the grandeur and glory of past times in the tiny Bavarian village of Oberammergau, appearing straight from the pages of a storybook, then on to one of the most famous landmarks and most visited castle in Europe, ‘fairytale’ Neuschwanstein Castle. Days are filled with scenic hiking, as we gaze upon vistas of beautiful parks, dense forests, rolling countryside, and towering peaks. Marvel at the remarkable Breitachklamm, the deepest and one of the most impressive rocky gorges in middle Europe. With a good balance of visits to this region’s great sightseeing attractions and activity in the great outdoors, this exciting hiking adventure promises to be a truly exceptional journey.
