Itinerary:Day 1: Frankfurt -- Eisenach -- Weimar -- Leipzig (D)
You'll be picked up from Frankfurt in the morning and driven east to Eisenach, dominated by imposing Wartburg Castle. Here, visit one of the most important buildings in German history and see the room where Martin Luther translated the New Testament in just 11 weeks.
Overnight: Seaside Hotel or similar in Leipzig
Day 3: Dresden -- Annaberg -- Schneeberg -- Plauen (B, D)
Fuel up with breakfast at your hotel before heading out on the country roads to several charming, ancient German towns. Stop in Seiffen, a center of the wooden toy industry, and two ancient miner-villages, Schneeberg and Annaberg.
These towns are typical in the Erzgebirge (Ore Mountains) and are home to the German tradition of woodcarving and Christmas pyramids. As your guide will explain, in old times, light – represented by candles – was an important symbol of life and safety for miners working in the dark tunnels. The woodcarvers combined their deep religious beliefs and used candles to illuminate the pyramids, and decorated them with saints as symbols of the holy night.
In Annaberg, visit a Christmas market that dates back to 1510, and in Schneeberg, visit St Wolfgang’s Church, whose altar dates back to 1539.
In the afternoon, continue driving to Plauen, famous for its handcrafted lace. Plauen was founded in 1122 and since the 16th century has been an important center for cotton manufacturing. In the evening, enjoy a farewell dinner at your hotel with your fellow travelers.
Overnight: Hotel Dormero or similar in Plauen
Day 4: Plauen -- Bamberg -- Frankfurt (B)
Start your morning with breakfast at your hotel before packing up and traveling through the Franconian forest to the imperial city of Bamberg, founded in the 9th century. See the city's nicely preserved Old Town, which was declared UNESCO World Heritage Site, and see the cathedral and former Benedictine abbey of Michaelsberg.
You'll have time in Bamberg to do some last-minute shopping before heading through the rolling hills of Franconia back to Frankfurt, where your journey ends in the late afternoon.
