Battlefields, Bavaria, and Germany Reborn!

August 1 - 14, 2024 | 14 Days

Join Rose Gray, Insight Vacations, and WWI & WWII expert, John Bromage on this incredible journey through Belgium, Austria, and Germany. You’ll visit historic sites, beautiful cities, and quaint Old Towns. Our tour begins in Brussels, a city that fell to the German forces in May 1940 but thankfully did not suffer extensive damage. You’ll visit cities and sites that play important roles in the WWII story including Düren where the Battle of Hurtgenwald was fought, Remagen where the American 9th Armored Division captured the Ludendorff Bridge, Berlin, Nuremberg including the Nazi Rally Grounds, and Obersalzberg, home to Hilter’s summer retreat, “Eagles Nest”.

You’ll be immersed in beauty as we explore Salzburg with its “Sound of Music” story, enjoy a pils or dunkel beer in a Munich beer garden, dive into the history of battlefields, Berlin, and Buchenwald, and with John’s expertise and insight, come to understand the lasting impact World War II had on this part of the world.
