From the foot of the Obersalzberg, hop on a special coach that will take you to the WWII-era brass elevator, which then whisks you up to the Eagle’s Nest, perched on top of the mountain. Enjoy magnificent views of the towering snowcapped peaks of the Bavarian Alps and the surrounding countryside. It is a short walk from here to the cross on the summit of the Obersalzberg.
Below Obersalzberg are the 450-year-old salt mines. Walk in miners’ footsteps as you don a traditional mining outfit and descend into the grottos.

Loreley Rock
Celebrated in song and shrouded in legend – the Loreley rock is a 194-metre-high slate cliff towering above the narrowest point of the Rhine near St. Goarshausen.
It became famous for the tale of Loreley, a beautiful but melancholy siren who would sit on the rock and sing as she combed her golden hair. Her beauty and beguiling song distracted passing sailors from the strong currents and their ships smashed to pieces against the rocks. Today, the Loreley is a magnet for tourists from all over the world. In the Loreley visitor centre, an interactive exhibition tells you everything you need to know about the region. The Upper Middle Rhine Valley  where the rock is, became a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2002.

The National Theatre is home to Bavaria’s state orchestra, state opera and state ballet. At 2,500 square metres, this is the third-largest opera stage in the world.

Hanukkah (The Festival of Lights)
This Jewish holiday is not the “Jewish Christmas” as at times assumed – as a norm it predates Christmas. Hanukkah is celebrated for eight days, beginning on the 25th of Kislev, around mid- to late-December.

Days of Awe
As per the Jewish faith the Days of Awe are the 10 days from the start of Rosh Hashanah to the end of Yom Kippur.

According to Judaism, it is during the Days of Awe that God decides on each person’s fate in the next year.

Yom Kippur, celebrated on the 10th day of Tishri, is the most important and solemn of Jewish holidays. Yom Kippur is an important occasion on which even non-practicing Jews are most likely to attend synagogue, abstain from work or fast. It is a day of intensive reflection, repentance, fasting, worship and self-denial.

Passover (Pesach)
Pesach or Passover is a spring holiday commemorating the Exodus, one of the most important events in the history of Judaism and an important foundation for all Jewish beliefs. Passover remembers the liberation of the Hebrews from slavery in Egypt in the time of Moses.

It is widely known that the Sabbath is Saturday, the day of the week on which Jews are forbidden to work. However as per Jewish thinking, the Sabbath is not about rules but joyful celebration and rest. It is considered a gift from God and is the day Jews can relax, be with family, study and reflect.

In Judaism, Purim is a happy spring holiday that includes a festive meal, gift-giving and costumes. Purim is thus sometimes nicknamed “the Jewish Mardi Gras” or “the Jewish Halloween.”

Sukkot (Festival of Booths)
