Your Travel Itinerary

Day 1-2
Tuesday 20 + Wednesday 21 September 2022

Depart Australia - Dubai – City Tour – Dancing Fountain Show

We begin our journey with an evening flight from Australia (Melbourne, Adelaide, Sydney, Brisbane and Perth). We arrive in Dubai in the early morning and have arranged for the hotel rooms to be ready on arrival.

Following an early morning transfer from the airport to the hotel on Wednesday you will have time for a shower and change in our hotel rooms that will be arranged to check into early. Later in the morning you’ll enjoy a guided tour of this amazing new city resplendent with stunning skyscrapers and towers: an architectural oasis in the desert. Tonight, we will enjoy our first group dinner together when we dine in a local restaurant overlooking the dancing fountain show.

Dubai – Munich (Germany) - Munich Sightseeing

We depart Dubai for Munich, the beautiful capital of Bavaria in the far South of Germany. This afternoon you will have time at leisure to relax or explore as you wish.

Explore the best Munich has to offer with our city tour including historic Marienplatz, the city’s central square since 1158. The square is dominated by the New Town Hall (famous for the Glockenspiel) and the reconstructed gothic Old Town Hall and Marian Column. Watch the Glockenspiel mechanical display and enjoy time at leisure in central Munich. From here it is off to the superb Nymphenburg Palace, once the summer residence of the Bavarian monarchs and one of the largest royal palaces in Europe.

Day 5
Saturday 24 September 2022

Oberammergau – Passion Play

Today is the day we have long been anticipating, a chance to experience the unique event that is the original Passion Play. Since 1634 the Villagers of Oberammergau have performed the “Play of the Suffering, Death and Resurrection of Our Lord Jesus Christ” once every 10 years to fulfill their solemn oath to God. In 2020 it will be the 42nd time the Community of Oberammergau have performed the Passion Play that they have preserved throughout the centuries. After a relatively short drive from Munich we will have time to admire the town’s beautiful muralled buildings before a light lunch. After lunch prepare yourself for an incredibly emotional experience – the Passion of the Christ.

Day 6
† Sunday 25 September 2022

Salzburg

We farewell Oberammergau and travel to Salzburg, believed to be the first place north of the Alps to receive Christianity and gateway for the spread of faith into Germanic Europe. After lunch we will visit St. Peter’s Church and Abbey, the spiritual heart of the city since the church’s foundation in the 7th century. Aside from its striking Christian architecture, the cemetery and catacombs are also a must-see for fans of “The Sound of Music”. Drive by the nearby 10th century Nonnberg Convent one of the world’s oldest continually active convents, known to us as home to “Fraulein Maria”. Salzburg is synonymous with music and famous as the birthplace of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Enjoy a late afternoon wander through the historic centre with our local guide – amongst the many pretty town houses and mansions we will also see Mozart’s birth place in Getreidegasse and his later residence.

Day 7-8
Monday 26 + Tuesday 27 September 2022

Mondsee – Vienna – Vienna Sightseeing

Monday morning we will drive out to the glorious Mondsee Lake and visit the baroque St Michael Basilica, made famous for the wedding scene in the “Sound of Music” movie. Enjoy picture postcard views as we travel through spectacular alpine scenery. We arrive in Vienna, the grandly beautiful Imperial City, in the afternoon.

Tuesday is a chance to enjoy the glory of Vienna – whether you love baroque streetscapes, imperial palaces, artistic and musical masterpieces or oldworld coffee-houses, Vienna offers something for everyone. A morning city tour will take us to see St Stephen’s Cathedral, a Gothic masterpiece with its distinctive tiled roof.
Be amazed at the secular and ecclesiastical treasures as we tour the Hofburg Palace and its Imperial Treasury.
The rest of the day you can spend at leisure – explore the Museum Quarter and see the works of such artistic greats as Klimt, Van Gogh, Da Vinci and Rembrandt or enjoy people watching as you indulge in afternoon tea at a KaffeeHaus. Don’t forget to try Vienna’s famous “Sacher-Torte”, the chocolate cake invented for royalty in 1832. The European leg of our wonderful spiritual journey is at an end so tonight we will celebrate with a delicious farewell meal.
