Celtic Heartland Day with Manching Museum and Oppidum Visit
The Celts inhabited Europe for perhaps 10,000 years, although their language derivatives are now only heard in parts of Ireland, Wales, Cornwall, the Isle of Man, and Brittany in France. The Hallstatt culture was predominant from 800 BCE until they were displaced by the Romans, with a high concentration right here in Bavaria. We visit a number of archaeological sites where there is evidence of Celtic settlements, then spend a number of hours at the Manching Celtic museum and oppidum.
Gardens of Peace
Hear inspiring stories of triumph and tragedy from the resting places of some of Munich’s heroines and heroes of science, engineering, architecture, and humanity. We visit a selection of gardens on the morning tour, and a few more if you take the afternoon extension, after a thoughtful lunch at a beautiful beer garden or restaurant. The walking is all flat and handicapped-friendly. There are many opportunities to rest, and there is a short commute between each.
