Day 1
Welcome To Bavaria
Day One is arrival day and get-used-to-Central-European-Time-Zone day if you are coming from overseas.  We will pick you up from the airport and bring you to the hotel, your home for the next seven days.  If the entire group arrives early and wants to hit the ground running we can certainly organize an activity such as a special tour or an extra round of golf.  The day will be crowned by the special Welcome Dinner at the world-famous Hofbräuhaus in the evening.

We start the cultural week with a tour of your host city, Munich.  We’ll go by car and by foot to see the important historical and interesting places, including the BMW World, the Residence and Marienplatz with the Glockenspiel.  At noon we head out for the first round of golf at Schloss Egmating, a fun and extremely pretty course east of the city.  Dinner tonight at a fantastic country inn close to the course.

We take a break from Golf today to travel to the mountains and visit one of the most famous castles in the world, Neuschwanstein.  King Ludwig II of Bavaria built this amazing tribute to the past in the second half of the 19th century.  Walt Disney patterned his castle after Ludwig’s masterpiece.  We will also tour the castle where Ludwig spent his childhood summers and visit an incredibly beautiful rococo church in the middle of a field – a UNESCO World Heritage site.
