TAKE A TRIP: Visit London or Head to Germany!… ALL FROM HOME

 Weds, October 21: Free Virtual Tour of Germany (Online Event)

Join one of EF’s finest tour directors Lewis on this Oktoberfest tour of Germany.
Normally when we think of Germany we think of either its modernity – it’s infrastructure, manufacturing, high quality of life, etc or of its traditionalism –
its sausages, beers, and alpine culture.
Bavaria–the largest state in Germany–is home to many of these more traditional features of German cultural life. In this online tour we will take about the State itself: it’s unusual kings, folk cultures, and food cultures, about its famous beer festivals, and the city of Munich. We will not only touch on the ancient history of Munich, but also on the dark period of its history which traverses the Holocaust and World War II, and also on modern forward-looking Munich, which is said to have the best quality of life in all of Germany!
Come along on this journey!
Attendance is free but tips are appreciated.
