Day 1 Munich
Your Munich, Innsbruck, Salzburg Rail Tour starts right from Munich Int. Airport from where you will take a train taking you directly to Munich Main Station, where your hotel is located. Your hotel is located in short walking distance from the station. The price of your tour already includes admission to many sights in Munich (Munich Residence and Residence Museum, Treasury, Cuvilliés-Theatre, Hall of Fame and Statue of Bavaria, Nymphenburg Palace and Park, Marstallmuseum, Museum of Nymphenburg Porcelain) and with your tour package you will also receive walking suggestions for a self-guided walking tour through Munich City Center. Along this walking tour you will visit theMarienplatzwith the New Town Hall (with the “Glockenspiel”), the Konigsplatz (King´s Square), cultural center in the 19th century and later, during the “Third Reich”, site of Nazi Party mass rallies and location of the Nazi Party headquarters in Germany, the English Garden as well as the the State Opera House.
Day 2 Day trip to Nuremberg
By High-Speed train you will be traveling from Munich to Nuremberg. Nuremberg’s history reaches back to the year 1050, its name “nourenberc” translates into “rocky hill”. Nuremberg’s famous landmark, the “Kaiserburg” (Imperial Castle), towers above the Old town, which is protected by the five kilometers long city wall, many towers and gates can still be visited. The medieval Castle is one of the most important imperial palaces dating from the middle ages from the 11th century (admission included). In the Third Reich Adolf Hitlers´Nazi Party had chosen Nuremberg for their Nazi Rallies and if you are interested in that part of history you may want to visit the Documenation Center Nazi Rally Grounds which are located just south of the Old Town.
When exploring the beauty of Nuremberg’s medieval Old Town you may want to start right at the Koenigstor (“Kingsgate”) which is the gate right across from Nuremberg Central Station. From where the timber framed buildings, the Gothic Church of St.Lawrence and the Church of St.Sebaldus can be easily reached by foot. Right next to the Koenigstor is the Handwerkerhof (craft center), here you will feel like you are back in the medieval times, there are craft workshops like they used to have a long time ago as well as a gingerbread bakery. Make sure to enjoy a Nuremberg Bratwurst along with a beer or a glass of “Frankenwein” (franconian wine).
Day 3 Escorted coach tour to the Royal Castles
Another highlight of your Munich, Innsbruck, Salzburg Rail Tour will be a visit of the world famous Neuschwanstein Castle. You will be on an all-day escorted coach tour which will first take you to Oberammergau for a photo stop (you may want take a look at the Festival Hall where the Passion Play takes place every ten years.) The coach will then take you to Linderhof Palace, the Royal Villa of King Ludwig II. The Palace and Park were inspired by Versailles and the rooms are beautifully decorated and furnished. After a short drive through Austria and back into Germany you will get to Neuschwanstein Castle. The picture of Neuschwanstein is probably present in everybody’s mind and Neuschwanstein really seems to be taken out of a fairy tale. You will join an English-speaking guided tour through the Castle. The tour of the interior, the Throne Hall, the Hall of the Singers, the Grotto and all of the private rooms which were built for King Ludwig II, will make the picture perfect! After the tour of the inside make sure to take some time to explore the castle grounds. The view of Neuschwanstein from the bridge behind the castle is like no other! Your luxury coach will take you back to Munich where you will arrive in time for dinner.
Day 4 Day trip to Innsbruck
Speed rail will take you in a little less than two hours from Munich Central Station to Innsbruck in Austria – Capital of Tyrol. You will be able to enjoy a very scenic train ride since the train will take you right through the Alp Mountains – passing Rosenheim and Kufstein. Innsbruck is known as the “Capital of the Alps“. From Innsbruck Central Station it is just about a 10 minute walk to the Old Town where you find one of the highlights of Innsbruck: the “Goldenes Dachl“ (golden roof).
Most of the sights are on the right bank of the River Inn, from which the town takes its name. Innsbruck’s boulevard and central pedestrian area is “Maria-Theresien-Strasse” which offers a nice street view with the mountains seen in the back. The oldest part of town, the Altstadt, is a small area between the river and the semi-circle of road known as the Graben (now a street, but once the route of the old moat that surrounded this part of town). Delivery vehicles are allowed down the cobbled streets at certain times of day, but otherwise pedestrians can wander around uninterrupted. A good orientation point is the Sprungstadion ski jump – built in 1964 for the winter Olympics – that sticks up rather incongruously on the southern side of town.
Day 5 Day trip to Salzburg
In about 1 hour and 30 minutes the high-speed “RailJet” (RJ) will take you from Munich to Salzburg in Austria. Salzburg, beautiful town close to the Alp Mountains, birthplace of Mozart is also the site of the popular movie “The Sound of Music”. In the afternoon you will enjoay the English-speaking most unique 4-hour Sound of Music tour! This tour is an ideal opportunity to follow in the footsteps of Maria von Trapp while taking in local historical sights both from the city of Salzburg and also the picturesque lakes and mountains surrounding the city. After the tour you may want to walk across the Salzach River to take a look at Mozart’s birth house and the small shopping streets in the area. Here you also find a wide choice of restaurants for dinner. In the evening take the train back to Munich.
Day 6 Munich
Today you have another full day for sightseeing in Munich. You will be able to visit famous churches like Munich Frauenkirche, “Dom zu Unserer Lieben Frau (Cathedral of Our Dear Lady), with a height of 325 ft. a Munich landmark, St. Peters Church, built in the 14th century and the Asam Church, which was built as a private chapel and integrated into an apartment building. The tour will pass by the most famous Munich shopping streets (Kaufinger street and Neuhauser street) as well as by the “Viktualienmarkt”, a traditional farmers market (open every day except on Sundays). The tour will take you by the famous “Alois Dallmayr” luxury delicatessen and coffee store as well as to theHofbrauhaus of course, probably the world’s most popular beer hall. This may be a great place to enjoy a hearty dinner and a fresh Mass of beer (one mug holds 33.8 US fl oz)!
Day 7 Munich Int. Airport

MUNICH, INNSBRUCK, SALZBURG 1ST CLASS RAIL TOUR AND ON TO PRAGUEI wanted to thank you for the fantastic job you did organizing the hotel reservations, the trains, tours, etc. It all worked out perfectly, and suited our group to a “T”. We loved being able to determine our own schedule, but were thankful not to have to deal with making all the reservations. The hotels were wonderful and locations perfect! Our visit to Prague was great, too. As it worked out, there were festivals in both Nuremberg and Prague on the days we were there. All of my sisters greatly enjoyed visiting Germany for the first time, and being able to visit near where our great-great-grandparents grew up. It is a beautiful country. – Laura R., Escambia, Florida, USA

We had a wonderful time on our extended Munich, Innsburk, Salzburg rail tour. . Michaela, Thomas and Petra were so helpful. All of our questions were answered promptly and when we requested a change to the itinerary, they did it seamlessly. We highly recommend to-Europe!
They created a custom tour based on our needs.. The hotel was close and convenient. The staff at the hotel was very helpful in answering our questions.. The To Europe staff, especially Michaela, was so responsive and helpful.. Every detail was as promised!! We enjoyed the flexibility with our tour and would definitely use their services again...
We were pleased with all of the information we received and for the tour itself going pretty smoothly. The hotel was withing 5 minutes to the Munich central station, as well as the coach tour. We paid for the first class tickets and enjoyed the reserved seats and the DB lounges were a plus. The hotel and breakfast buffet was great. The only change I would make is to request a room facing the courtyard, since it is quieter. Our room faced a very busy street and so it was a bit noisy at night. I have recommended to-europe.com to other people planning a trip. Having everything arranged and in order is a plus if you've never been in Europe before, since it can be very confusing trying to do this on your own.
Fantastic. We loved the opportunity to go it "on our own" alternating with a couple of guided tours. Accommodations were superb! When I goofed and got train tickets confused it was taken care of within minutes!
