- For your city tour through Munich in the morning, Marienplatz – a spectacular square full of history is always a good starting.
On the square, you will see the famous Glockenspiel in the New City Hall tower. Daily at 11 am and 12 noon, the puppets inside the clock will come out and present the scenes of two events from Munich’s city history. About 120 meters southeast of the plaza is the traditional food market – the Viktualienmarkt, a great place for a live glimpse into local’s life. Walk for 5 minutes to the northeast of the square and then you will come to the Hofbräuhaus that is famous as the cradle of Bavarian tavern culture. Why not sit down and enjoy the typical Southern German style it has crated meticulously?
The afternoon is on your own to discover more hidden treasures of Munich at your own pace.
- Move on to Füssen this morning. With a history of over 2,000 years, Füssen now is much better known for hosting "The Mad King" Louis II's unearthly Neuschwanstein, the inspiration source of Disneyland's Sleeping Beauty Castle.
Visit the fantastic Neuschwanstein castle and then within an hour's drive, you will be in front of the beautiful castle of Linderhof, another masterpiece of the King of Louis II. Surrounded by various beautiful gardens in Italian, French, and England styles, the splendid castle itself was modeled on the Palace of Versailles.

After arrival, ascend by cable car to the Zugspitze to enjoy the wonderful views and then spend some time strolling and relaxing in this tiny town surrounded by the spectacular Alps and the scenic Eibsee Lake.
