TnCIS Germany | MUSC 1030
Salzburg, Austria; Heidelberg and Munich, Germany
The program will begin with a five-day stay in Salzburg, Austria, home of The Sound of Music and of the great composer Mozart. Next, we will travel across Bavaria to the German state of Baden-Württemberg and the city of Heidelberg. The university at Heidelberg is the oldest in Germany, dating from the 1300s. The city also boasts the ruins of the Heidelberg Palace, built in the early part of the thirteenth century. After five days in Heidelberg, we will finish our journey with ten days in Munich, Germany’s third-largest city and a focal point of some of the country’s most recognizable features, including its attire (Lederhosen and Dirndls) and its food (Schnitzel and Wurst). As the capital of the southern German state of Bavaria, Munich offers a unique blend of history, art, music, architecture, and entertainment. While in Bavaria, the program will also include day excursions to the fairy-tale castle Neuschwanstein and to the Dachau concentration camp.
