Germany is one of my favorite countries in Europe to visit for the culture, cuisine, history and beauty of this country. And, now there will be yet another reason to head back to this charming country – in 2018, the Adventures by Disney Germany vacation will take travelers to Berlin, for the first time ever.

This newly reimagined Adventures by Disney Germany trip will still include a visit to the storybook town of Rothenburg, as well as a mesmerizing tour of the breathtaking Neuschwanstein Castle. But, next year you’ll also have the chance to experience both the South and the North of Germany in a whole new way.

Grab a Bavarian pretzel because these are the top five “must-do” activities on this Adventures by Disney Germany itinerary:

1. Bike along the Berlin Wall
New for 2018, take a scenic trip on a train from Bamberg to the storied city of Berlin. While in Berlin, bike along the Berlin Wall, an iconic symbol of the Cold War. Prepare to be blown away by the unique mix of old and new, including stunning architecture and a vibrant art scene.

2. Explore Neuschwanstein Castle
Journey to the idyllic grounds of Neuschwanstein Castle, one of the most popular castles in all of Europe, for a fairytale-esque tour of this 19th-century masterpiece. Fun fact: This architectural marvel was Walt Disney’s inspiration for the Sleeping Beauty Castle at Disneyland Park!

3. Master the Art of Graffiti
Also new for 2018, learn firsthand how the vivid street art of Berlin’s Gendarmenmarkt got its start. Beginning in the vibrant streets of Kreuzberg and Friedrichhain, the tour will conclude at Humboldthain Music Club for a colorful Graffiti workshop, where you can create a graffiti canvas of your own.

4. Journey to Rothenburg
Travel to the Bavarian village of Rothenburg, which served as the inspiration for Pinocchio’s village. Take in the view of the cobblestone streets lined with half-timbered houses, and learn to twist pretzels from the head chef at the Striffler Bakery.

5. Indulge in German Fare
Speaking of food, Germany offers a variety of culinary adventures. One of the best experiences will be your dinner at the world famous Hofbrauhaus! Enjoy partaking in a meal of traditional and scrumptious Bavarian fare.

Adventures by Disney Germany Itinerary Includes Baroque Architecture and Treetop Adventures

Amidst the treetops and majestic Alps lies one of the most breathtaking baroque cities in Germany: Passau. This stop on the unforgettable Adventures by Disney Danube River cruise takes you on a walking tour through the “City of Three Rivers” and a trek along the treetops, and culminates with a celebration in true German fashion (Hint: it includes beer).

Enjoy a quaint stroll through the city of Passau led by a costumed local guide who takes you on a journey through the past. Highlights of the tour include experiencing the power of St. Stephen’s Cathedral’s more than 17,000 pipe organ and participating in a marzipan-making activity that will surely satisfy your sweet tooth. Then reach for the sky and walk along the treetops as you climb the famous Tree Path in Kopfing for an awe-inspiring view of the Alps. End your day German-style with an Oktoberfest celebration featuring local performers, music, folk dancing, pretzels and of course, beer. Prost!
