Alpine Europe 2010
Dear Alumni, Parents, and Friends of George Fox University,
The university is excited to announce our tour of alpine Europe to see the Passion Play at Oberammergau, Germany, in early-summer 2010. This inspiring one-day play, dating back nearly 375 years, is performed for sold-out audiences every 10 years in a magnificent outdoor covered amphitheater with the Bavarian Alps as a backdrop.
Open to all alumni, parents and friends of George Fox, our 11-day tour, departing May 31, will include visits to the beautiful alpine European cities of Frankfurt and Munich, Germany; Salzburg, Austria; and Lucerne and Interlaken, Switzerland. Among many other highlights, the tour will include travel through the Rhine Valley, Black Forest, as well as the Swiss, Austrian, and Bavarian Alps. Additionally, visits are planned to Neuschwanstein and Heidelberg castles, and Rothenburg, Germany's best-preserved medieval town. To read the full itinerary, click here.
The cost of this trip is $4,199 per person (set at 2010 prices) and includes round trip airfare from Portland, all overnight accommodations at first-class hotels (private homes and pensions are used in Oberammergau), most meals, guaranteed tickets to the Passion Play, private motor coach transportation, a professional tour director, service charges and local taxes, and comprehensive sightseeing and entrance fees throughout.
We are very excited to provide this once-in-a-lifetime European adventure to our alumni, parents and friends and hope that you will take advantage of this opportunity to travel with other members of the George Fox family.
Though it may seem too early to make plans for an event nearly two years away, tickets are always sold out well in advance and early reservations are a must. To request a brochure, click here.
