Day trips, such as a visit to the magnificent palace of Frederick the Great in Potsdam, and a private tour of the Semper Opera House in Dresden and the Margravial Opera House in Bayreuth are planned. In Plzen, the city credited with creating Pilsner beer, both the J.K. Tyl Theatre and the Brewery Museum are on the itinerary. On the itinerary is a day trip to Cesky Krumlov, the UNESCO World Heritage Site, and a beautifully preserved medieval town, including the Cesky Krumlov Castle and the Baroque Theatre.
