TnCIS Germany | MUSC 1030
Munich, Leipzig and Berlin, Germany
The program will begin with an eight-day stay in Munich, Germany’s third-largest city and a focal point of some of the country’s most recognizable features, including its people’s 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. We'll visit their great art museums as well as attending an opera or ballet. Day trips to Neuschwanstein (AKA Cinderella's castle) and Salzburg may also be on the itinerary. From Munich we will travel by train to Leipzig, where J.S. Bach spent many years. This former East German city is the European City of the Year for 2019. Our last eight days will be spent in Berlin, where you can still see the dramatic difference between what was behind the Berlin Wall and what was in the free zone. Street musicians are in abundance and music is everywhere!
Munich, Leipzig and Berlin, Germany, with possible excursions to Rothenburg ob der Tauber, Neuschwanstein, and Salzburg (Austria)
