Nuremberg, Germany

Welcome to Germany

Epic Bavarian legends abound in storybook settings that date back to the 5th century in this fascinating destination filled with diverse landscapes and compelling cultural traditions.

Black Forest cooking demonstration

Learn secrets from chefs with an interactive Black Forest cooking demonstration

Bavaria and the Black Forest region of Germany have contributed a wide range of local dishes to European cuisine, from spätzle, maultaschen (a filled Swabian pasta-like dish, sort of like Italian ravioli but usually larger), Schwarzwälder Schinken (Black Forest Ham) and grillwurst (spicy sausage made from ground pork and bacon) to brezels, flammkuchen and iconic Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte (Black Forest Cherry Cake). Learn some of the secrets of preparing some of these and other regional specialties at an interactive cooking demonstration with chefs in the Black Forest.

Oberammergau, home to the Passion Play

Visit the charming Bavarian village of Oberammergau in Germany... home to the once-a-decade Oberammergau Passion Play

Once every ten years, as each new decade begins, some 2,000 local residents of the little Bavarian village of Oberammergau, join forces to perform the Passionsspiele (Passion Play) – a dramatic re-creation of Jesus Christ's last days on Earth. First produced in 1634, the world-famous Oberammergau Passion Play – now a high-tech production presented in a state-of-the-art theatre built specifically for it – has become a beloved highlight of every decade, attended by thousands from all over the world. On Tauck's "Romantic Germany," you'll stop for lunch in the village of Oberammergau. And in 2020, five very special Tauck trips will feature our Oberammergau Passion Play experience, including admission to the Passionsspiele... offering guests the opportunity see the spectacle unfold in person... an experience to be remembered for a lifetime!

Tauck Exclusive – Evening at Schloss Ehreshoven

Enjoy an elegant dinner and tour at Schloss Ehreshoven, overlooking the Rhine in Germany

Built in the 14th century and later expanded in the grand style of a Baroque manor house, Schloss Ehreshoven is surrounded by gracious 18th-century French gardens and a castle park. For nearly a century the castle has been the heart of a charitable foundation whose main mission includes providing a home for unmarried aristocratic ladies without means in their golden years. Frequently used as a location for movies and TV shows, the Schloss provides an elegant setting for Tauck's exclusive cocktail reception and dinner, hosted by a member of the family.

Tauck Exclusive – Evening at Burg Satzvey

Cross the moat for a special evening at Burg Satzvey

Considered one of the best-preserved medieval moated castles in Germany's North Rhine-Westphalia region, Burg Satzvey (Satzvey Castle), not far from Köln, has been home to the same noble family for more than 300 years. We invite you to cross the moat and visit this 12th-century castle after hours for a Tauck Exclusive tour and gala evening with a reception, dinner and musical entertainment… to which you'll be welcomed by a member of the family.
