The medieval walled city of Nuremberg has been delighting Titan clients at Christmas time for many years, as has the service and festive cheer provided at the fine Le Meridien Grand Hotel, ideally situated close to the city gates. We are pleased to once again be staging this splendid holiday, which provides you with the opportunity to stroll around the famous Nuremberg Christmas Market and enjoy a visit to the fabulous Würzburg Residenz. Enjoy the stunning views of the countryside as we journey through ancient villages, each with their own magnificent church, to Bamberg, the dream city of Emperor Heinrich II.

On arrival we transfer to Nuremberg and Le Meridien Grand Hotel (5T), where we enjoy a welcome drink and dinner tonight. Evening meals are usually taken in a function room throughout your stay.
Today, breakfast is followed by a visit to Bamberg, the dream city of Emperor Heinrich II. The cathedral unites the Romanesque with Gothic to provide a masterpiece of beauty.

We have included a lunch at a nearby restaurant before returning to our hotel, taking in some of the most picturesque scenery found in the Bavaria region.
