3 Nights Munich & 3 Nights Berlin (DM)

Lederhosen, Oktoberfest, polka dancing, beer, Bavarian pretzels, sauerkraut…yep, Germany is waiting, and Monograms is ready to take you on vacation to two of Germany’s greatest cities: Munich & Berlin! This vacation package includes hotel reservations at centrally located hotels, buffet breakfast daily, sightseeing with local experts, transportation, and connection between the cities. Plus, in both cities you’ll have the services of a Monograms Local Host®, an insider who will help you personalize your vacation and make sure it runs smoothly. With Monograms, all you have to do is show up ready to have fun!

Your vacation starts as soon as you arrive in Munich, where we can whisk you from the airport to your hotel. Your Local Host will meet you at your hotel with a welcome packet and suggestions for your vacation. The next morning, after enjoying included breakfast, your guided sightseeing with a local expert includes VIP-skip the lines visit to BMW World and Nymphenburg Palace’s park. Watch the world-famous Glockenspiel, which recreates a royal wedding from the 16th century, and explore its most famed square, Marienplatz. In Berlin, visit the Holocaust Memorial and Brandenburg Gate, built in 1791 as a monument to peace. Berlin has a tumultuous past, and your local expert guide can share inside stories only locals would know. On the third day in each city, you have time to explore on your own or take advantage of the excursions and activities offered by Monograms. In Munich, perhaps visit the Residenz Museum, the former royal palace of the Wittelsbach family; enjoy a beer in one of the beer gardens; take an excursion to the famous Neuschwanstein and Linderhof Castles; and shop for a beer stein or cuckoo clock. In Berlin, perhaps take a tour of Jewish Berlin; shop at KaDeWe, Europe's largest department store; or take an excursion to Potsdam, where the Prussian Kings spent their summer. Whatever you do, be sure to ask your Local Hosts for their favorite haunts to grab one of the famous German beers.

While we haven’t included beer in your package, we have included daily buffet breakfast. Plus, the local expertise, the VIP access, and the escape from logistics hassles, giving you the vacation of a lifetime. You’ll enjoy yourself so much that you’ll be hesitant to say “Auf Wiedersehen”to this great country.

Meet a Local Host® in Munich

My name is Adele, I was born in Jerusalem, I speak and write in four languages, and. I have lived in Munich for 40 years. My interest in history and art studies led to me sharing my knowledge as a Local Host and Guide. I love showing Munich to Monograms’ guests. It is a wonderful and vibrant city with everything from a wealth of art and culture to sporting activities; it's also easy to get around.

Munich Museums

Munich has over 50 museums; ask your Local Host for information according to your interests. Some favorites are: Alte Pinakothek is a glorious museum with an immense collection of paintings from the greatest European artists of the 14th through the 18th centuries. See a self-portrait by Rembrandt and a Madonna by Leonardo da Vinci. Families and the technically-minded will love spending a few fascinating hours viewing the master works of Science and Technology at the Deutsches Museum (German Museum). Reopened in 2013 after a 4-year renovation, the Lenbach Museum contains a variety of works by Munich painters and contemporary artists, such as Wassily Kandinsky, Gabriele Münter, Franz Marc, August Macke, Marianne von Werefkin, and Paul Klee. Wander the themed rooms of the Stadtmuseum. The collections include puppet theaters, thousands of musical instruments from around the world, more than 500,000 photographs, and a history of brewing. Villa Stuck designed by the artist and owner Franz von Stuck, incorporates floors, ceilings, and walls into a single beautiful work of art.

Asamkirche

The brothers Cosmas Damian & Egid Quirin seemed divinely inspired when they created a baroque church for themselves, which turned out so magnificent that their 18th century compatriots forced them to make it accessible to the public. From the ornate façade to the ceiling fresco of St John Nepomuk, nearly every inch is a delight.

Schatzkammer der Residenz

Visit the former royal palace of Bavarian monarchs and stroll through the Schatzkammer (Treasury) halls. You’ll see lavish crowns from generations of monarchs, scepters and ceremonial swords, table wear and extravagant crafts from China, India, Iran, Mexico, and Turkey.

Tierpark Hellabrunn (Zoo)

The Müncher Tierpark was founded in 1911 as the first “geo-zoo” in the world with approximately 460 species and about 5,000 animals. At any time of year, its changing moods offer an impressive glimpse into the natural habitats of the protected landscape of the Isar floodplains. The animals are comfortable thanks to the species-appropriate approach. Without distracting bars and fences, the visitors can observe the animals with ease.

Traditional German Souvenirs

It’s hard to imagine leaving Munich, home of the Oktoberfest, without a traditional German beer stein. Other traditional souvenirs include Black Forest cuckoo clocks, music boxes, nutcrackers, lederhosen and felt hats.

Munich Beer Gardens and Bavarian Cuisine

Countless beer gardens populate the city, and it’s a great chance to relax with the locals. Seats beneath shady trees are plentiful, and there’s a wide variety of beers to choose from. Local food specialties include sauerbraten (marinated beef dish), dumplings and sauerkraut, Weisswurst (sausage), Kartoffelpuffer (potato pancakes), and Kaiserschmarrn (sweet pancakes with raisins, rum, and almonds). Taste one of Germany’s famous white wines particularly the Riesling; also try Apfelwein (apple wine), radler (a mix of beer and German-style soda or lemonade) and spezi (German orange cola).

Opera & Concerts in Munich

Opera and Dance is an international language, as an opera lover you will feel at home in Munich immediately; or listen to live music at one of Munich's many concert halls where music of all styles and for all tastes is played regularly. Ask your Local Host for more details.

Charlottenburg Palace

Originally built in 1695 as the summer residence of Sophie Charlotte, the first queen of Prussia, it is one of the landmarks of Berlin. Subsequent generations of the royal family expanded and remodeled the palace according to the taste of their time. As a result, the palace contains interior decoration reflecting several architectural styles: the old palace, with its magnificent baroque state rooms and the famous porcelain cabinet, and the new wing built by Frederick the Great in 1742.

Reichstag Roof Terrace & Dome

In 1894, after ten years of construction, the Reichstag was completed and its dome towered above the City Castle. The Parliament building has reflected the turbulence of German history since that time. The dome and the roof terrace are only open for registered visitors (Pre-registration is required). Your Local Host will have details.

Close to the Brandenburg Gate in the heart of Berlin, find the Holocaust Memorial. It is a stele-field which can be walked through from all sides, serving as a central place for remembering and reminding people of the Holocaust.

Picture Gallery – Gemäldegalerie

You'll be hard-pressed to find a better painting collection than the offerings in the Gemäldegalerie (Picture Gallery) by such luminaries as Van Dyk, Hals, Rubens, and Rembrandt. Designed by Munich architects Hilmer & Sattler, the building is a work of art in its own right.

Berlin Museums

Ask your Local Host about Berlin's amazing collections.

Visit the German History Museum on Unter den Linden Avenue. At Checkpoint Charlie see the Assisi Panorama of the Divided City, and Museum. To learn more about Berlin during the Third Reich, visit the Stasi Exhibition or the Topography of Terror. The Story of Berlin Interactive Museum is equipped with multimedia technology for experiencing everyday life during different eras.

Madame Tussauds

Millions of people have flocked through the doors of Madame Tussauds around the world since they first opened over 200 years ago and it remains just as popular as it ever was. There are many reasons for this enduring success, but at the heart of it all is good, old-fashioned curiosity. The third European site was Berlin in 2008, where the attraction opens in ‘Unter den Linden’.

Shopping and Markets

Take advantage of great shopping and fine restaurants on the Kurfurstendamm, or stroll along the Tauentziennstrasse. You might find just what you're looking for at the Europa Center or at the Kadewe, Europe's largest department store. Drop in on the Türkenmarkt overflowing with fresh fruits and vegetables, fresh-baked breads, and culinary wonders.

Olympic Stadium

Built for the 1936 Summer Olympics in Berlin, Germany, the stadium now hosts football matches including the German Cup final and other sports events.
