The tour will continue over the Charles Brridge to the old Jewish quarters. We will end the tour in one of the old pubs to test some Czech beers.

Day 7, Friday, February 01
This is one of the nicest narrow gauge train rides in Germany. Our destination point (Oberwiesenthal) is 2999 feet above sea level and therefore the highest situated town in Germany. Besides tourism and winter sports Oberwiesenthal is also known for their wood carvings. Expressive items from this region are the “Smoking Men, the Christmas Pyramids and the Schwibbogen”. I am sure you can find an artsy item for yourself.
Day 8, Saturday, February 02
Nürnberg Toy Fair
The Toy Fair is surely the highlight of our tour. For any individual that likes toys, trains, Christmas ornaments or any hobby related products this fair is a must. Visiting the Toy Fair is a rare opportunity, because it is not open to the public; our guests are allowed to visit the fair because we get them in as employees. The fair is a treat for our eyes. The manufactures’ booths are incredible with all the new products, all the layouts and dioramas – we will be like kids in a candy store.
Day 9, Sunday, February 03
We spend our last day in Germany in Nuremberg. If some of you want to go back to the Toy Fair let us know so we can arrange the tickets. For all the others, we will start with the Transportation Museum. This is one of the best transportation museums in the world. You will also enjoy the big Fleischmann layout what they have set up and also the 1:10 scale models of locomotives. After that we will tour the city. We can go to the castle or the St. Lorenz Church, see the Toy Museum or the Albrecht Dürer house. You just tell us your preferences.
