Day 13:

Extend your discoveries in Berlin

A whopping five museums await on Museum Island and your included walk this morning will get you acquainted with each. You’ll enjoy entrance and commentary at Neues Museum, which will introduce you to one of the world’s finest collections of ancient Egyptian artifacts. This evening, you can join an optional pub crawl with your City Host.

Day 14:

Free time or optional concentration camp visit

You’ll have the morning free to discover more of Berlin on your own — or, take our optional tour to Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp for what is sure to be a reflective experience. The rest of the day is at your leisure with lunch and dinner on your own.

Included Meals:

Breakfast
Optional Tour: Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp

Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp

  • Approximate Cost: $99 USD per person
  • Approximate Time: 4 hours
  • Location: Berlin, Germany
  • When: Morning tour (extension only)

Though lesser known than some others, Sachsenhausen was one of the first concentration camps and was designed to be a prototype for others. Only a short distance from Berlin, it is a preserved reminder of the horrors of the Nazi era in Germany. Travelers will be taken on a tour of the grounds and given insights into what it was like for the prisoners here.  It is a powerfully poignant experience you won’t soon forget.

Day 13:

Journey on a scenic ride to Krakow

After breakfast today, we depart for a lengthy but scenic motorcoach trip to Krakow. You’ll stop in Olomouc (whose Holy Trinity Column is a UNESCO site), and savor an included lunch. The university here means there’s a youthful population, but there are still centuries of history you’ll notice in the baroque city center. Later, we'll gather for a briefing, including a Welcome Drink.

Included Meals:

Lunch

Day 14:

City walking tour, and a visit to Auschwitz and Birkenau

During your walking tour of this elegant city, once the seat of Poland’s royalty, ten centuries of architecture are on display. Your route includes Wawel Castle, the coronation and burial site of Polish kings, and the vast medieval square — a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In the afternoon, we’ll make a somber visit to the Nazi concentration camp at Auschwitz and the nearby “death camp” of Birkenau. These sites are now recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. They’re also a museum and a memorial dedicated to the 1.5 million people who perished here.

Included Meals:

Breakfast

Day 15:

Transfer from Krakow to Warsaw

Today, you’ll board your deluxe motorcoach and head for Warsaw, stopping at Czestochowa. The Jasna Gora monastery here is famous for its black Madonna, but it is also the site of other treasures and artifacts, including the Nobel Peace Prize received by former Polish president and labor activist Lech Walesa. After lunch on your own, head to your centrally located hotel, and check in for an evening at leisure.

Included Meals:

Breakfast

Day 16:

Tour Warsaw’s Old Town and visit the Warsaw Ghetto

On this morning’s included tour, you’ll delve into Warsaw's Old Town, the historic heart of the Polish capital and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The UNESCO designation recognizes the painstaking rebuilding of this district following deliberate destruction by retreating German troops. We’ll also visit the remnants of the Warsaw Ghetto, where some 400,000 Jewish citizens were imprisoned after the Nazi conquest of Poland in World War II, and three quarters of whom died in concentration camps. Your afternoon and evening are at leisure to explore more of Warsaw on your own.

Included Meals:

Breakfast

Day 17:

Fly home

After breakfast in the hotel this morning, transfer to the Warsaw airport for your flight back to the U.S.
