In the company of Andrew Graham-Dixon

Art historian and broadcaster Andrew Graham-Dixon is your guide to the ‘Dream Castles’, those romantic Alpine architectural fantasies of King Ludwig II of Bavaria which seem more fairy-tale than reality. Explore world-famous Neuschwanstein Castle, the glorious Herrenchiemsee Palace and charming Linderhof Palace, as well as Castle Berg, where Ludwig’s story came to an unhappy end. And, of course, Andrew will join you for the unforgettable spectacle of the Oberammergau Passion Play, staged by the townsfolk every ten years in thanks for deliverance from the plague.

*Please note that hotel names are confirmed to us by the Passion Play organisers closer to the departure date. Single travellers are allocated single rooms during the nights in the Oberammergau area; in other hotels they are allocated a twin/double room for sole occupancy.

Tour highlights:

  • Travel in the company of art historian and broadcaster Andrew Graham-Dixon throughout
  • Experience the Oberammergau Passion Play with Category 2 Tickets
  • Enjoy the stunning Herrenchiemsee Palace just outside of Munich, referred to as the ‘Bavarian Versailles’
  • Stay in majestic alpine surroundings in Füssen, near to the world-renowned Neuschwanstein Castle
