2018 Alumni Tour Information

RMU Alumni Tour guests stay in luxury accommodations, dine in the best restaurants, and enjoy a private travel itinerary featuring the very best this lovely region has to offer.

Salzburg

The home of Mozart and setting for The Sound of Music, Salzburg features postcard views at every turn in a charming old town watched over by a hilltop castle. We’ll stroll amid the fountains and gardens of Hellbrunn Palace, enjoy dinner at Hohensalzburg Castle followed by a concert by the Mozart Chamber Orchestra, and see the meadow where Julie Andrews sang “the hills are alive.”

Munich

One of Germany’s most endearing cities combines modern verve and Bavarian conviviality with Baroque splendor. Dotted with gardens, palaces, and parks, Munich comes alive in the central square of the Marienplatz and its legendary glockenspiel. And no visit to Munich is complete without an oompah band, a big pretzel, and an even bigger stein at one of its legendary beer halls.

Bavarian Alps

The towering peaks that cut through Germany’s southern border into Austria offer breathtaking views, and for the lucky hiker, a chance to spot the rare and protected mountain flower edelweiss. We will enjoy the Alpine backdrop at scenic lake Chiemsee, where sailboats cruise in the shadow of mountains.

Neuschwanstein Castle

Gleaming white and perched on a dramatic bluff above the town, this fairytale castle of King Ludwig II of Bavaria is among the most popular in all Europe. Inspired by Wagner’s opera Lohengrin, Neuschwanstein stands as a romantic monument to the Middle Ages.
