Globus Poland, East Germany & World War II(RV)

13 days from Warsaw to Munich 
This World War II tour in Poland and East Germany is the perfect vacation for those who are interested in World War II. Your tour starts in Warsaw and ends in Munich. Along the way, you’ll visit cities, concentration camps, and places important during World War II—with overnights in Warsaw, Krakow, Wroclaw, Dresden, Berlin, Weimar, Nuremberg, and Munich.

Throughout this tour, you’ll visit some of the concentration camps used during World War II. Visit the most infamous, Auschwitz and Birkenau, where you’ll see chilling reminders of the Holocaust, and the Buchenwald concentration camp near Weimar. Constructed in 1937, it was one of the largest concentration camps. You'll also visit the site of the former Dachau concentration camp, which started out as a work camp for German dissidents.

In Krakow, visit the Remuh Synagogue, and the Oskar Schindler Factory, a museum devoted to the wartime experiences of Krakow and made famous in the movie Schindler's List. You'll also visit the Memorium Nuremberg Trials and Courtroom 600 (if available), where you’ll learn about the background and repercussions of the trials at the original location where they were held as well as the Documentation Center and Zeppelin Field, where thousands of people gathered for Nazi rallies. These experiences – plus specialty dinners at local restaurants in Dresden and Nuremberg - are some of the special inclusions Globus offers to ensure your vacation is unique.

World War II brought devastation to the cities that were bombed, and you'll visit some of those cities. In Dresden, enjoy a guided walking tour of this city that was badly damaged by Allied bombing in February 1945 and has since been restored. In Berlin, visit the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church, a symbol of reconciliation.

All of this and much more is included in this fabulous World War II tour in Poland and East Germany.
