American Ancestors invites you to join Curt DiCamillo for an unforgettable week in Saxony, the cultural heart of Germany for over 800 years. We’ll begin in vibrant Leipzig, home of the oldest civic orchestra in the world, and the city where Mendelsohn, Bach, and Wagner all lived. In Meissen, we’ll visit the oldest porcelain factory in Europe and see one of the purest examples of Gothic architecture on the continent—Meissen Cathedral. The last leg of our Saxon odyssey will be in Dresden, “the Florence on the Elbe,” where we’ll see breathtaking art, including the sublime treasures of the royal Green Vault. All of this amazing culture will be topped off with luxury accommodation at two of Germany’s finest hotels: the Steigenberger Icon Grandhotel Handelshof in Leipzig and the Hotel Taschenbergpalais Kempinski in Dresden.
