World War II & The Iron Curtain

See History Up Close on this Tour from Berlin to Prague to Munich

9-Day Private Tour Exploring the 3rd Reich, the Berlin Wall and the Iron Curtain

From the bustling capital of Germany to medieval feeling Prague and on to iconic Munich and the beauty of the the German Alps, this tour takes you on an interesting journey to see important sites relating to World War II and the Iron Curtain.  You will not only learn about history up close but also see beautiful and interesting landscape as we travel from the lakes in the north to the mountains in the south.

In Berlin we’ll see plenty from both the 3rd Reich and the divided city, including the Reichstag, Checkpoint Charlie and the Berlin Wall.  As we head out of town we will see both Wannsee and Potsdam on the way to Dresden, where you will learn about that city’s remarkable reconstruction.  Then it is on to Prague and its rich architecture and history, including Soviet bloc times.  We then head back into Germany to visit the walled city of Nuremberg.  In Munich you will learn how the Nazi party got its start and learn about the concentration camp system in Dachau.  We end the trip on a literal high note, as we visit the mountain-top Eagles Nest.
