HANCEVILLE, Ala. — The Evelyn Burrow Museum at Wallace State Community College is accepting reservations for a May 2018 tour of Germany and the Alps. The nine-night trip is scheduled for May 17-27, 2018, and includes stops in Rothenburg, Munich, Lucerne, Salzburg, Heidelberg, and more.

“This will be a wonderful trip for area residents who may want to explore their German heritage or anyone who would like to learn more about Germany and Switzerland, and is a great educational opportunity for area students,” said Kristen Holmes, Burrow Museum Administrator. “Plus, the average high temperature for Munich in May is about 64 degrees, so it will be a great escape from the hot, humid weather in the South.”

The trip includes a guided tour of Rothenburg, Germany, a Bavarian dinner to sightseeing in Munich, a visit to the Neuschwanstein Castle, a dinner in the Swiss Alps, sightseeing in Lucerne and Heidelberg, and more.
