Germany Tours & Holidays
At the heart of Europe, Germany is a destination that filled with modern cities, awe-inspiring scenery, half-timbered medieval towns, romantic palaces and dense forests. From vast vineyards to glistening glaciers, to river valleys and the Alps, a trip to Germany will give you a unique insight into the country’s natural beauty and its fascinating history. We’ll drink delicious Reisling wines, eat traditional German food including Spätzle (pasta) and schnitzel and be overwhelmed by gothic and baroque architecture. And discover the stories behind some of the world’s greatest figures, from Albert Einstein to Beethoven.
River cruises in Germany
We’ll take a relaxing river cruise along the legendary River Rhine, lined with picturesque vineyards and pretty medieval towns. Sit back and watch the ever-changing scenery unfold along the riverbanks and get to heart of the action with tours of stunning Lake Lucerne and magical Strasbourg. For something a little different, head further east and discover the delights of the River Elbe. We will weave our way through mountain gorges and impressive rock formations and follow the river as as it flows through the historic cities of Dresden, Wittenberg and Magdeburg.
Vibrant German cities
On a holiday to Germany, discover the country’s energetic capital, Berlin - one of the continent’s most cosmopolitan and vibrant cities. Home to superb collection of museums, art galleries and famous landmarks such as the Reichstag and the Brandenburg Gate, there is much to explore.

EHIC/GHIC - Following the UK’s exit from the EU, the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) is being replaced by the Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC). UK-issued EHICs are still valid and offer the same cover as GHICs in the EU. Once your EHIC has expired, you’ll be able to replace it with a GHIC and you can apply online. You should beware of unofficial websites that may charge if you apply through them. An EHIC or GHIC is free of charge.
Either card lets you get medically necessary state healthcare in Europe at a reduced cost or sometimes free of charge, however it isn’t a replacement for travel insurance, you should have both before you travel. Some European countries don’t accept either card (including the Channel Islands of Guernsey, Alderney and Sark, Norway, Iceland, and Switzerland).

Titan's Germany holidays take place throughout the year through, in a range of luxury river cruises, coach tours and speciality holidays focusing on the city of Berlin - and, in winter, the country's various Christmas markets.
On our river cruises, Titan passengers explore the delights of Germany's storied rivers and waterways which include the Danube, the Elbe and the legendary Rhine.
Our German tours evoke the unique character of the regions they visit. The historic appeal of western Germany is tied to the Rhine: a river crucial to the commercial life of its surrounding peoples - and the subject of centuries of European folklore. On trips along the Rhine, between cities like Koblenz, Speyer and Mainz, travellers discover vast forested landscapes scattered with castles and religious buildings - along with wide open fields holding vineyards which produce some of the finest wines in the world.
Germany's eastern cities are characterised by Gothic spires and indulgent Baroque architecture - and our tours through the region reflect this architectural tradition in Leipzig, Potsdam and Dresden. Badly damaged in the second world war, Dresden rebuilt itself in the late twentieth century, restoring its architectural splendours and drawing thousands of visitors to what was once considered the capital city of the Kingdom of Saxony. Following the Elbe river north, Titan cruise passengers embark on excursions to famous attractions including the 15th century Albrechtsburg Castle, the palaces of Lingner, Eckberg and Pillnitz and the famous World War II prison, Colditz Castle.
Many of our luxury road and river tours end in Berlin, where passengers discover a sprawling metropolitan city home to a wealth of modern and historical attractions. Berlin is a city full of energy and atmosphere - and, on almost every corner, the echoes of history mingle with signs of striking modernity. Beyond its glitzy skyline and stylish shopping locales, like Kufurstendamm and Tauentzienstrasse, tours of Berlin reveal the recent and not-so-recent past, including the stately Brandenburg Gate, the Reichstag building, the remains of the Berlin Wall and the notorious Checkpoint Charlie. Germany's cities and rural regions overflow with character and rich heritage - and our touring holidays aim to deliver unforgettable experiences in each of them. Your Germany holiday begins on your doorstep - when our VIP Home Departure Service arrives to transfer you to the airport. Once you arrive and begin your coach tour or river cruise, dedicated Titan Tour Managers work tirelessly every step of the way to ensure your German holiday becomes an adventure to remember forever.
