3 days: A weekend getaway in the Franconian Wine Country - from € 148
A weekend getaway in the Franconian Wine Country
Impressive encounters with a young old city - Würzburg offers lots of them. And spectacular ones at that. The Episcopal Residence built by Balthasar Neumann and featuring a ceiling fresco by the Venetian Tiepolo, the world's largest painting, can only be described in these terms. This clerical domicile from the 18th century has been a UNESCO world heritage site since 1982.
The lively university city of Würzburg, gateway to the Romantic Road, is dominated by its most prominent landmark, the Fortress Marienberg. The origins of this fortress date back to around 1000 B.C., when a Celtic fortified refuge existed on this site. Since the foundation of the Würzburg bishopric in 742, Würzburg has been the religious center of the region.

  • 2 nights with rich breakfast buffet

Cologne Cathedral
The Cologne Cathedral
The Cologne cathedral is a cathedral of the superlative, a symbol and central attraction of the Rhine metropolis. Its size is emphasised by the gigantic pair of towers, which have dominated the panorama of the cathedral city since their completion in 1880. The catehdral is still today the second highest building in Cologne after the telecommunications tower. The area is no less impressive: The full length of the cathedral is 145 m., the cross nave is 86 m.wide. In comparison: a football pitch is "only" around 100 times 70 m. There is room for more than 20,000 people on the area of the cathedral, which encompasses almost 8,000 square metres.
                                                                                                                              Ascent of the Tower
Climb the south tower of the Cathedral to its 97 m high viewing platform and enjoy a magnificent view of the City.

Treasury
The treasures of Cologne Cathedral are displayed in the 13th century vaults - priceless reliquaries, liturgical objects and vestments, insignia of the archbishops and priests, medieval sculptures and Frankish grave finds.

2 days: Freiburg Gourmet Package - from € 200
Freiburg´s culinary delights
Freiburg was founded by the Dukes of Zähringen in 1120, and the layout of streets and squares of the rapidly prospering metropolis is still impressively reflected in today’s cityscape. In 1368 Freiburg came under the Habsburgs – remaining, with but brief interruptions, the capital of Austria’s Vorderösterreich until the beginning of the 19th century.
The medieval Old Quarter with its architectural treasures, colorful marketplace, twisting narrow lanes and little “waterways” running through the streets picturesquely circles the magnificent Gothic Cathedral. Its unique 381-foot-high tower ranks among the masterworks of Gothic architecture, enhancing Freiburg’s incomparable silhouette. It took over 300 years to build this Gothic masterpiece, which was completed in 1513, which takes pride of place as Freiburg's main landmark.
Includes:
  • 2 nights in a 4**** hotel with breakfast (full breakfast buffet with organic products)
  • Welcoming drink
  • 4 course gourmet menu
  • Guided city tour
  • free parking space
Reduction for children:
children up to 12 years of age stay for free, excluding menu, in parents' bedroom.
Bookable all year round.
