I hope you will consider joining my friends at Malone Clan Expeditions in Jackson, MO for a wonderful journey to the Luther sites in Germany. Wartburg Castle pictured here will be one of the stops on this 11 day trip. The journey is titled, “Invitation to Conversation in Germany.” It revolves around history, religious ideas, culture, and fine cuisine with an exploration of what living 500 years after the Reformation means for us today. The dates of the journey are September 18-28. The tentative itinerary includes Weimar-Ehringsdorfer Brauerei, Erfurt-Augustinerkloster, Wittenberg-Reformation churches and museums, Weimar-K-Z Buchenwold, Eisenach-Wartburg Castle–pictured above, Coburg-Veste Coburg, Eisleben-birth and death homes of Luther, with a finale in Berlin.
The itinerary of each day will seek to balance providing enough structure to foster a meaningful experience with enough free time to process and savor your journey. We will have two informational sessions to learn more about the trip on May 7, and May 23, at 7:00 p.m. at the Cape Girardeau County History Center, at 102 S. High St. in Jackson, MO or call 573-579-8807 for more information if you will be unable to attend an informational session but have interest in the journey. The price of your journey is $3,900./person. It is an exceptional value including group airline coach round trip, taxes/airline surcharges, deluxe coach transportation while in Germany, double occupancy hotel room, meals as specified in the final itinerary (usually includes appetizer, entrée, and dessert), entrance and museum fees. The hotel is quite lovely. Please call the number above or email this site if you wish to have a detailed brochure sent to you electronically. We also have brochures available at the Lutheran Heritage Center in Altenburg.
Come and join me on May 7 or May 23 at the History Center in Jackson, 7:00 p.m. We will have a little gourmet coffee and treats while we begin A Conversation in Germany.
You will return from your journey just in time to tell us all about it at the Biennial Immigration History Conference, October 25-27!
Take Care, Carla L. Jordan, Director
