ABOUT UMLAUT TRAVEL:
UMLAUT TRAVEL is an exclusive tour operator specializing in themed travel to Germany. It doesn´t take much to book your own trip to see Neuschwanstein Castle or visit Munichs world-famous Oktoberfest… anyone can do that. It takes a bit more to find the truly special sights, to go backstage, behind the curtain, to see the true heart of Germany, cultural and architectural highlights, exclusive guided tours - that´s what UMLAUT TRAVEL provides.
We are currently working on these new tours:
EIN PROSIT is a one week trip dedicated to German beer. We are visiting all important German brewing areas and learn about the distinct styles of beer brewed there. We will enjoy guided tours and private tastings and even visit a manufactory where artful Steins are still made by hand.
AUTOBAHN is all about German cars. This trip takes you behind the scenes of luxury brands Mercedes-Benz and Porsche, and into Volkswagen´s magnificent Autostadt, half museum half amusement park. Hold on tight while racing around a real Formula One track with a former pro and get behind the wheel at Germany´s greatest Kart track. Not all about speed, this trip includes a safety training on a special track and, of course, some driving time on the legendary Autobahn.
All our tours are 8 days long and do not include air travel. It is our experience that you can find cheaper air travel when booking on your own either from your preferred airline (United Airlines, American Airlines and Delta Air Lines have direct flights between many US and German destinations) or by using travel sites like Expedia, Travelocity, Kayak or others. Please book a flight that gets you to your destination in Germany on the date indicated on your itinerary (usually a Saturday) with a return flight leaving Germany on Sunday the following weekend. You will be met at the airport upon arrival, and we will bring you back to the airport on the day of your departure.
During your trip UMLAUT TRAVEL offers you only the highest quality of European travel: We are riding only new luxury buses with extra leg room, bathroom and other amenities, and we are only staying in upscale hotels.
Founded in 2012 by passionate German-American Lars Halter, UMLAUT TRAVEL arranges these differently themed tours for travelers to experience the best of whatever their own, personal interest might be. Historic churches? Traditional breweries? Luxurious cars? UMLAUT TRAVEL has you covered… have a look at our tours and book your trip of a life time today.
