FITNESS/PRACTICALITIES

Please note that this tour requires a good level of fitness, as it involves a moderate amount of walking, including over sometimes uneven ground and cobbles that can be particularly challenging if wet. We will also spend periods of time standing in galleries. Lifts are not always available at sites so participants must feel comfortable using stairs. Our visit to Meissen will involve navigating steep steps.
