Germany - Tales and Legends: Overview

Click to view the map

Some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again. — C.C. Lewis

Once upon a time, long before Facebook, television and movies, radio, books and print, and even before postal service, entertainment came in a different form. Stories delivered the fun, and like any good entertainment should, stories transmitted lessons. In a colder and darker time, stories formed and firmed cultural norms, and lived in the smallest towns and most impoverished corners of a land that only much, much later became Germany.

Tour Overview

Heidelberg Join Go Learn and Professor Karin Baumgartner on an incredibly unique journey to the roots of German Fairy Tales. Learn how the Brothers Grimm, searching for the base of a common German language, discovered and collected those tales and lessons from traveling storytellers and French refugees. Travel with us on the Romantic Road, crossing the Neckar, Mosel, Rhein, and Main rivers. Venture into the Spessart Forest, the darkest of all German forests, and discover places of magical repose.

This is not a Disney tour but the magic and beauty encountered on this journey will appeal to all ages, even younger travelers and families. Stories and places visited will take you deep into German, French, and local culture. Never have education and vacation paired better than on the Fairy Tale tour.
