It’s a guaranteed snow day! For 365 days of the year, the summit of Jungfraujoch is covered in snow. Your tour leader can arrange a full-day optional excursion to the “Top of Europe” - see the spectacular glacier and enjoy the incredible views!

Guten tag! It’s time to travel to Germany. Today’s first stop is Munich which is the vibrant capital of Germany’s Bavaria region.
