After breakfast, today we have an optional full day excursion to Regensburg and Nuremberg. We first stop at Regensburg, a city in the East of Germany located where three rivers meet – the Danube, the Naab and the Regen. During the Advent, roads, squares and the medieval centre (a UNESCO world heritage site) change to the magical atmosphere of Christmas, many stalls selling a wide range of decorations, traditional food and other delicacies, handmade items such as dolls, pottery, paintings on silk and other materials, toys, marionettes and all sorts of other gifts. Later, we continue our way to Nuremberg – situated in the Bavarian region, well known for its medieval architecture like the stone towers and fortifications in the Old Town. At the end of the old part of the town, we find the Kaiserburg castle, while in the central square one can admire the 14th century Schöner Brunnen fountain decorated with figurines. During this excursion we will also visit the Christmas markets in Nuremberg. One can taste the Liebkuchen (gingerbread cookies), the Nuremburg bratwurst - small sausages roasted on firewood and sip some mulled wine while enjoying the joyous atmosphere, lights and music. Return to hotel and optional dinner.

Sunday 10th December
After breakfast we have another full day excursion that takes us to Lake Chiemsee in Bavaria, near Rosenheim. This recreational lake is often referred to as the Bavarian sea and here we find three main islands. We will have a boat ride (extra – weather permitting) on the lake to see the islands. Herreninsel is the largest island with 238 hectares where King Ludwig built a palace which was never completed, but it was believed to be a copy of the Palace of Versailles. Then we find Krautinsel and Fraueninsel, the smallest of the main islands where we find the Benedictine monastery and a small village. The Christmas markets at Lake Chiemsee are truly unique, surrounded by lake waters and decorated with elaborate Christmas lights - a special atmosphere with sweet aromas filling the air along the stalls. Optional dinner at the hotel.
