  • 30 April 2018: Arrive into Milan

We assemble at the Cochin International Airport to board your flight to Munich.

Welcome to Munich – The natural habitat of well-heeled power dressers and Lederhosen-clad thigh-slappers, Mediterranean-style street cafes and Mitteleuropa beer halls, highbrow art and high-tech industry, Germany’s unofficial southern capital is a flourishing success story that revels in its own contradictions. If you’re looking for Alpine clichés, they’re all here, but the Bavarian metropolis has many an unexpected card down its Dirndl.

After we finish the immigration formalities we drive you to your hotel. After the long journey you can freshen up and relax in your hotel room.

Later visit the BMW Welt. Housed in a futuristic mirrored building as fashion-forward as its cars, automobile pioneers BMW take the spotlight at Munich’s BMW Museum, located at the company headquarters near Olympic Park. Whether you’re an auto enthusiast or just looking to get your photo taken beside a slick sports car, you can’t fail to be impressed by the museum’s vast display of cars and motorcycles.

Then enjoy dinner at Munich’s famous watering hole, Hofbräuhaus — a festive 3-floor beer hall dating back to the 16th century. The Hofbräuhaus is the cradle of Bavarian tavern culture - the origin of tradition, “Gemütlichkeit” and hospitality. Enjoy great food with Bavarian entertainment and music.

Walkways and hiking trails wind around and across the water, and a Lake Kozjak ferry links the upper and lower lakes. The latter are the site of Veliki Slap, a 78m-high waterfall. The waters flowing over the limestone and chalk have, over thousands of years, deposited travertine barriers, creating natural dams which in turn have created a series of beautiful lakes, caves and waterfalls. These geological processes continue today. The forests in the park are home to bears, wolves and many rare bird species.
