Munich, Germany — 5 nights

Often described as the city of laptops and lederhosen, Munich is an international center of business, engineering, research, and medicine that still maintains a rich cultural heritage and age-old traditions.
Venture out of the city with trips to Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site (in Dachau) and Nuremberg (St. Lorenz Church, Toy Museum, &more). There's still lots to do: get curious at Deutsches Museum, steep yourself in history at Nymphenburg Palace, take in the spiritual surroundings of Frauenkirche, and don't miss a visit to Marienplatz.
