Tiptoe through the Treetops in Bavaria

Enjoy the Bavarian Forest at its best on this magnificent tour which showcases the region’s natural resources. From the unique confluence of rivers at Passau and a treetop walk, to an impressive Bohemian castle, there are picture-postcard moments at every turn.

Day 1 Arrival
We arrive at our hotel in time for dinner.

Day 2 Passau & River Cruise
Passau is known as the ‘city of three rivers’ due to its unique position as the point at
which the three rivers of the Danube, Inn and Ilz meet, and this morning we enjoy
a 45 minute three rivers sightseeing cruise. We see the colourful buildings and
Italian flair of Passau as well as its historic attractions from the waterside as we cruise
by. In the afternoon we spend time at leisure exploring the Baroque Old Town of
Passau, which was designed by Italian architects in the 17th century. Attractions to
see include St Stephen’s Cathedral, which houses the largest organ in the world, the
13th century Veste Oberhaus Fortress and the Mariahilf Monastery.

Day 3 Bavarian Forest & Treetop Walk
This morning we enjoy a guided Bavarian Forest treetop walk. At a height of 8-25 metres above the forest floor, and with an overall length of 1,300 metres, the treetop walk is among the longest of its kind worldwide and provides a memorable stroll through nature. From here, we continue on a scenic drive through the Bavarian Forest, passing the Grosser Arber lake and mountain, the highest peak in the Bavarian Forest. Next, we head to Bodenmais where we visit Joska World of Crystal for a fascinating glass blowing demonstration (free of charge).

Day 4 Hohenau Driver’s Day Off
We have a day at leisure in our resort today. We can relax and enjoy the hotel’s facilities or make use of the local bus and rail services to further explore the wonderful Bavarian Forest.

Day 5 Ceský Krumlov
Today we travel to the South Bohemian region and visit the historic town of Ceský Krumlov, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the Czech Republic. Surrounded by unspoiled countryside, the town has 300 protected buildings in the historic centre, one of the largest castle complexes in central Europe and the oldest Baroque theatre in the world. We enjoy a guided tour of Ceský Krumlov Castle, after which we have time at leisure to explore the medieval streets, shops and cafés along the banks of the Vltava River.

After breakfast, we begin our journey home.
