Flight to Zurich, pick up hire car. Discover the beautiful Gardens of Lake Constance. Lake Constance has ten gardens and a whole lot more. Take a trip through the history of garden culture: gardens and parks with breathtaking views bring to life the region’s rich history. The town on Lake Constance has managed to keep itself true to the long-standing traditions of trade and culture right up until the present day, adding many new aspects along the way. Spend 2 nights in this region.
Drive to Coburg, stopping en route at Sigmaringen Castle. It is assumed that an early Roman and Alemannic settlement already existed on the crag over the Danube, but possible remains stay well hidden under the medieval castle walls. For hundreds of years the European aristocracy met at Sigmaringen Castle and the family of Hohenzollern still owns the castle today.
Nearby excursions of interest include Würzburg and Bamberg. Coburg is a lively city, rich in tradition. With the fortress towering high above the city, its art collections, Ehrenburg Castle and the State Theatre, Coburg houses cultural and art treasures of international renown. Würzburg is a special mix of culture and ambiance, of world heritage and wine festivals, of modern and classical music, of avant-garde and age-old traditions, of sciences and party atmosphere that makes this town so popular. The stunning historical architecture provides the perfect setting for everything Würzburg has to offer. Bamberg's well-preserved Old Town comprises three historical districts – the episcopal town, the island town and the market gardener's town. All three are part of the UNESCO World Heritage site and provide a fascinating example of how central European towns were built up around the basic layouts established in the early Middle Ages.
Travel back towards Frankfurt spending your final night at the deluxe Schlosshotel Kronberg (Castle Hotel) near the financial capital of Germany. Most people associate Frankfurt with brokers, banks, stocks and shares – and they wouldn't be wrong, but there is much more to the city than just big business. Frankfurt does, after all, have an unrivalled museum scene and offers a wide range of cultural activities.
Flight back from Frankfurt-Main airport.
