Love to learn in a small-group setting? This collection of programs has at most 10-24 participants.
See our Small Group programs.
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
If you’re looking for a more flexible schedule with ample independent time and several meals on your own, then our FLEX learning adventures are made for you.

For participants in the Sept 12-24 tour. You might want to check out the exhibition at the Berlin State Museum near our hotel. It is supposed to be a wonderful new show about the Vikings, opening on Sept 10th. Tickets are available online and entrance time is set on ticket. Rose Marie Beston

Would like to meet other participants going on June 11 trip. Does anyone have any information on musical performances during free time. Where would I find version of Zitty Berlin or similar listing in English. Would like to partner for events during free time. Like music performances, museums, German food.

June and I are taking this trip on April 30. Has anyone looked into what additional operas, concerts, shows etc. which might be scheduled on open evenings.

Dorothy Healy Oct 06, 2013 at 02:54 PM

To those going to Berlin, Leipzig and Dresden, you'll be able to find all kinds of performances by going to Zitty Berlin online. There's a web version as well as a print version. The group that did the Classical Germany program in June found it very helpful. It was a wonderful experience and I know you'll have a great time. If you have any specific questions, I'd be happy to try to answer them. Dorothy Healy

My husband and I are interested in meeting other guests the Oct. tour. We are also interested any more performances.
We purchased tickets online for La Traviata at the German State Opera, and have ordered Ballet tickets in Dresden thru Irmgard. Any other ideas? Barbara Riddle.

Judith Fetterley Oct 04, 2013 at 11:40 AM

We are trying to get information about other musical options during our time in Berlin inparticular. Has anyone had any luck in contacting Irmgard or anyone else connected with this trip. Judith fetterley

Try on line at for events at the Berlin Philharmoniker. We just returned from this trip and were able to purchase tickets for an organ concert and another event in addition to the Berlin Philharmonic concert which was on the schedule for our group. Enjoy! It was a wonderful trip.

I would like to get tickets in advance for the Pergamom Museum since i understand one can wait in line for over and hour. Tickets are for timed entry so I am not sure what time to purchase. Anyone able to shed light on this. I think we will have most of the day September 24 so maybe anytime that day after the Mueseum of music Instruments visit.
