About the Destination

Warsaw, Oswiecim, Nuremburg, and Berlin

Despite centuries of turbulent history, Poland’s resilience has reshaped it into a modern nation with Old World charm. Visit ‘Old’ Warsaw, which was completely rebuilt after World War II. Visit the Warsaw Uprising Museum, which pays tribute to those who fought and died for Poland’s independence after WWI. Travel to Old Krakow, a formerly Jewish community that houses the well-known Oskar Schindler’s Factory.

Venture into Oswiecim, and Auschwitz will be your first stop. At the Nazi concentration camp, experience a chilling tour where you’ll learn about the horrors of the Holocaust and the Nazi regime. Poland is sure to excite the senses with its scenic countryside landscapes, rich historical landmarks and vibrant culture.

Learn about Hitler’s Anti-Semitic Nuremburg laws in Nuremburg, Germany where the Nazi Party began their rise to power, and understand how history came full circle with the Nuremburg Trials condemning Nazi war criminals by an international tribunal.

Visit Schloss Neuschwanstein, a castle in the clouds straight out of a romantic fantasy novel. Discover bustling Berlin on a walking tour that will take you to a no-man’s land between East and West Germany. Visit significant memorials, learn about the Jewish life and tradition at the Jewish Museum in Berlin and then experience Germany’s modern lifestyle through the ever-changing displays of graffiti, art installations and galleries.
