Tramways and Tourism in Southern Germany
May 2–21, 2018
The ERA is proud to announce its next biennial international tour, with excursions into Switzerland and France as well.
Tramways and Tourism in Southern Germany will cover many major and provincial cities in Germany in an extensive 20-day program. The tour will include first-class travel on Germany’s high speed and regional trains — plus chartered bus travel where needed — in order to visit the many historic and modern tram, light rail and metro operations throughout the country. General sightseeing opportunities will also be provided to cover many of the beautiful and historic places in Southern Germany and Switzerland.
Tramways and Tourism in Southern Germany will begin on Wednesday, May 2 in Karlsruhe as participants arrive and settle into our luxury hotel. The next day we will travel through the area on S Bahns and regional trains, followed by our welcome dinner. The last tour activity will be roundtrip travel from Munich to Nuremberg via an Inter-City-Express train (ICE) for a historic tram charter plus tram riding in Nuremberg. After an overnight stay we will end the tour in Munich on Monday, May 21. All breakfasts, one group lunch plus eight group dinners will be provided.
Four-star hotels will be our homes during the tour. We will stay seven nights in Karlsruhe, six nights in Freiburg and six nights in Munich. Feel free to relax and unpack your bags as we will be staying in only three hotels for the entire period.
