You will be responsible for your beverages and personal expenses and any activities not done as a group. The price is for double-room occupancy. A minimum of six persons is needed for this trip. To charter a bus, twenty persons will need to participate.

Departure and return for the tour will be through Dulles Airport in Washington, D.C., although direct flights from other ports may be arranged providing schedules will reasonably match.

The group will begin its touring in the Swiss villages of Sax and Frumsen, once in their own principality, later part of the Canton of Zurich, and now in St. Gallen. These are within eyeshot of Liechtenstein, still a separate principality, which we will also visit. We will then follow the route the Rudisill siblings took, when after the Thirty Years' War, they walked into southern Germany. We will visit Michelfeld, where one of them settled, and from where five members of the family emigrated to America over a period of twenty-some years. All settled in Pennsylvania initially, but soon scattered to North Carolina, Virginia, and Maryland. Today, descendants live all over the United States.

From Michelfeld we will go to Berlin, the capital of the reunited German land. The possibilities are endless here, but choices may be easily made.

From Berlin, we will head into northern Germany, an area of undisturbed brick gothic architecture. We will go to the coast of the Baltic Sea, visit Stralsund and Rostock and other cities once hidden behind the Iron Curtain. We will stop in Lubeck and Travemunde and then go into Denmark for a visit to the Cathedral town of Roskilde and, of course, wonderful, wonderful Copenhagen. Our final night will be in Tivoli, the magnificent park in downtown Copenhagen with restaurants, amusements, concerts and shops galore. We will fly home from Copenhagen.
