Elvis in Germany - August 2019

Join Strictly Elvis for another fabulous tour of Elvis'Germany. We'll show you all of the great Elvis sights as well as taking in the European Elvis Festival in Bad Nauheim.

 

ITINERARY

Day 1. Thursday 15th August 2019

You’ll fly from your selected UK Airport in the late morning direct to Frankfurt from where you’ll transfer by coach to your hotel in Bad Nauheim. Evening at leisure.

 

Day 2. Friday 16th August

Breakfast will be served at the hotel each day.

Morning’s guided walking tour of Bad Nauheim – seeing many of the features of this beautiful and historic spa town but majoring on the Elvis sights – the hotel and house where he lived, where he shopped and relaxed and the locations of many of the iconic photo’s that were taken of him there.

During this Elvis Festival Weekend there’s a whole programme of Elvis events, activities and concerts for you to enjoy – full details will be mailed to you when finalised. In addition many of the shops, bars and restaurants become Elvis-themed for the weekend, adding to the fun as they welcome fans from all over Europe. Evening free before joining in the candlelight vigil for Elvis that is held here every year. 

 

Day 3 and Day 4. Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th August

Two full days at leisure – what’s it to be? Time enough to enjoy many of the events featured in the Festival programme or to pay a visit to Friedberg to see what’s left of the (now closed) US Army base where Elvis was stationed. Visit some of the interesting shops there, explore the medieval castle or to stop for a coffee and one of those delicious cream cakes!  Or you could join your Tour Manager for a trip up the Johannisberg hilltop for splendid views over the surrounding countryside and to visit the café where, as the story goes, Elvis signed a tablecloth for a fan before the lady owner of the café snatched it off him and promptly washed it. Oh dear – if only she’d known!

Optional visit to Frankfurt including a one hour sightseeing cruise. 

 

Day 5. Monday 19th August

Morning short visit to the village of Steinfurth (famous throughout Germany for its roses) where Elvis and a work party from the base erected a war memorial before heading to Frankfurt Airport to connect with your return flight to the UK, arriving in the late afternoon.
