Beyond Band Of Brothers

Our Beyond Band of Brothers Tour takes you on an 11-day journey through Normandy, the Ardennes Forest and Bavaria. In Normandy, we visit all five landing beaches as well as the Normandy American Cemetery. From there we make our way to Belgium, where we explore sites relevant to the Battle of the Bulge in Bastogne as well as Malmedy and Stavelot. Our stay in Munich includes a visit to the infamous Dachau concentration camp and a guided walking tour that allows us to experience the city as the birthplace of the Nazi party. Finally we spend the day at Hitler’s Eagle’s Nest and visit Dokumentation Obersalzberg, an exhibit set atop the bunker complex that was to serve as the Nazis’ last stand.
