Suggested Itinerary

Bavaria in Detail

Leave London St Pancras in the late morning and take the Eurostar to Brussels Midi. Here, connect onto a service to Wurzburg in northern Bavaria, via Frankfurt. On arrival, check in at the Dorint Hotel Würzburg (or similar), where you will have an overnight stay.​

Alternatively, fly in to Frankfurt and take a connecting train to Würzburg. Flying in and out of Germany on this holiday saves approximately £100 per person.

Dating back to the Bronze Age, Würzburg has a huge amount to offer in terms of history and culture. You’ll arrive in time for an evening meal in the old town.

Your ticket to Rothenburg is flexible so you can travel on any train. Why not spend the morning discovering more of historic Wurzburg? The UNESCO World Heritage listed Wurzburger Residenz is well worth a visit.

Your train journey takes you via Steinach into the heart of the charming medieval town of Rothenburg. Here, check in at the Eisenhut Hotel (or similar), right in the historical centre, for a 2-night stay.

Take time to wander through the charming small lanes and cobbled squares that wind between medieval and renaissance buildings. Visit the stunning Rathaus (Town Hall) with its 60-metre tower, from which you can obtain a panoramic view across the city and surrounding countryside.

It’s also worth taking a walk along what remains of the medieval city wall. The 1.5 mile walkway offers spectacular city views.

Take the train via Steinach and Ansbach through the rolling hills of Bavaria to the historical city of Nuremberg, where you will stay for 3 nights. Check in to the Victoria Hotel (or similar), within easy walking distance of all Nuremberg has to offer.

Nuremberg is a historic city in Bavaria, famous for its stunning medieval Old Town and more recently, for the significant part it played both during and immediately after World War II.

Use your Bayern-Ticket (Bavarian regional railpass) to travel wherever you like in the state of Bavaria. We recommend visits to the walled city of Bamberg (30 minutes), the cultural hub of Bayreuth (50 minutes), or the beautiful medieval city of Regensburg (1 hour).

The beauty of these regional tickets is that you don’t need to plan in advance. Just go wherever takes your fancy on the day.

Take a sleek, modern German ICE train that covers the 105-mile journey from Bavaria’s second city to the regional capital in one hour.

Check in for 3 nights at the convenient Courtyard by Marriott Munich City Centre (or similar), just a 5-minute walk from the station.

You have a full day in Bavarian capital Munich to discover this fascinating city. Perhaps wander around the Old Town area of the city and have a drink in one of the famous brewhouses or pay a visit to one of two imposing Baroque palaces located just outside the city. Science fans will love the Deutsches Museum, the largest science museum in the world, and also one of the oldest.

On your second day, enjoy a day trip to Füssen, home of the fairytale castle of Neuschwanstein – the inspiration for Disney’s castle. Entrance to the castle is not included, but you can choose to buy tickets when you are there or simply enjoy walking around the castle grounds.

Depart Munich and head north to Frankfurt, where you connect with the international service to Brussels. On arrival, check in for your Eurostar journey back through the Channel Tunnel to the UK.

TMR RECOMMENDS: To minimise travel time, you also have the option of flying home from Munich to a London airport (regional airports may be available on request).  Flying in and out of Germany on this holiday saves approximately £100 per person.
