Oktoberfest in Historic Germany (12 Days)

From medieval Old Towns to modern metropolises, discover a Germany that is history-conscious but forward-looking. Begin in artsy, edgy Berlin, reunited Germany’s political and cultural capital. Stop at the historic outpost of Potsdam, then continue to dramatic Dresden— “jewel box” of baroque and rococo architecture.
