Germany Cultural Journey

Willkommen!

Germany has long been called the land of Dichter und Denker – poets and thinkers. However, contemporary Germany is also the land for travelers and explorers seeking multicultural and dynamic cities, bucolic villages, and pristine nature. Ride a bike along an old airport tarmac in Berlin, travel by solar-powered ferry across an Alpine lake, watch the wind turbines and half-timbered houses whiz by through the window of a high-speed train as part of your German adventure. Get an up-close view of Germany that goes beyond Sauerkraut and Bratwurst.

Custom programs in Germany are ideal not just for German language teachers but also educators in history, STEM, government/civics, and the fine arts.

The Itinerary


We work hard to create safe, engaging, and immersive itineraries for our travelers, but given the unpredictable nature of international travel we must remain flexible in our planning. Changes to a schedule are uncommon but if inclement weather pushes us off course or an unexpected opportunity arises which travelers are excited about, we reserve the right to adjust programming in the best interest of the group.
