Embrace the effervescent energy of Berlin - a city that epitomises a spirit of freedom and unity, having shrugged off the shackles of a dark past. Enjoy some free time to explore the city before meeting your Travel Director and fellow travellers for a Welcome Reception and an orientation drive.
The imposing green cupola of Berliner Dom is a landmark on the cityscape and what lies beneath is ours to enjoy during a guided visit to this famous Cathedral. You'll have an opportunity to 'Dive Into Culture' as you visit the Royal Crypt, one of the most important dynastic burial places in Europe. The final resting place for rulers who shaped the state and city of Berlin, the crypt contains 94 burials spanning from as early as the 16th century. Visit the Museum to delve into the Cathedral's varied architectural history. Then enjoy some free time on your own to explore before leaving Berlin for Wittenberg, the birthplace of the Reformation. This evening enjoy dinner at your hotel.
See where the story of Martin Luther's protestant movement began when in 1517 he nailed his 96 Theses to the main door of the Castle Church. That one act sparked one of the most significant changes the Christian world has ever seen and we'll have an opportunity to see where it happened during a visit to the church, where Luther is also buried. Your 'Local Specialist' will accompany you to visit Lutherhalle, where the Reformer lived, worked and made his "reformatory discovery". You'll also visit the Town Church, where Luther once preached, now recognised as the mother church of the Reformation. Enjoy the rest of the afternoon at leisure.
A leisurely start to our day sees us travel to Torgau. At Hartenfels Castle, we'll visit the castle chapel consecrated in 1544 by Martin Luther, then continue to the beautiful Baroque city of Dresden. A 'Local Specialist' will join us for a sightseeing tour and a visit to the fully reconstructed Frauenkirche, where J.S Bach was the first to play on the Silberman organ when the church was originally built. Spend a free evening exploring the "Florence on the Elbe".
Enjoy a leisurely start to your day in Dresden before continuing your journey to Leipzig. Here you'll meet a 'Local Specialist' for a tour of the city, home of the Leipzig Disputation. You'll visit Thomaskirche, the final resting place of J.S. Bach, and where Luther preached his Whitsunday sermon in 1539. This evening you'll 'Connect With Locals' for an exclusive 'Be My Guest' dinner.
Eisleben is so connected with Martin Luther that its official name is Lutherstadt Eisleben. We visit what was once his hometown this morning, joining a 'Local Specialist' for a guided sightseeing tour which includes St. Andrew's Church, where Luther preached his last four sermons, and the Church of Saints Peter and Paul where he was baptised. You'll also visit Luther's Birth House, which has been the site of a public museum for Lutheran pilgrims since the 17th century. Learn about the Reformer's close relationship with his parents and gain insights into his upbringing before spending some free time to explore the town. This evening, we arrive in Erfurt where we'll overnight.
Explore one of the best-preserved medieval city centres in Germany when you join your 'Local Specialist' for a sightseeing tour past its iconic Krämerbrücke, the Old Synagogue, Erfurt Cathedral and St. Severus's Church.

We make our way west this morning, stopping at Wartburg Castle for a guided tour of the hilltop castle and a walk through a thousand years of German history. There's time in Eisenach for lunch before Luther House, where the Reformist lived as a child. Follow in young Martin Luther's footsteps and learn about his historic translation of the Bible before continuing your journey to Frankfurt where you will enjoy an orientation tour this evening.
Continuing our exploration of Luther's life and contribution, we visit Worms this morning to see the city that hosted the private conferences held to determine his fate after he published his 95 Theses challenging the Roman Catholic establishment. Your 'Local Specialist' will join you for a guided sightseeing tour of the city. Admire the ornately decorated Dom St. Peter, built in the 12th century, then travel to Mainz where you'll see the Mainz Cathedral and Gutenburg Monument commemorating the German printing of the Bible.
