Course members are asked to book their own flights to Munich Airport from where a coach will take you to Berwang. The transfer takes approx 3 hours and the cost will be advised but will be in the region of €75 - €90 return. Members need to book, and pay for, their own flights. Those wishing to join the coach must ensure their flight times fit the coach departure times (notified after course booking form accepted). Alternatively members may make their own travel arrangements.
From the UK many course members fly from Stansted or Heathrow. If you would like advice about flights please do not hesitate to contact us.
If travelling by rail you can arrange to meet up with the coach at Munich Airport or make your own way to Bichlbach-Berwang station. The station is approx 4km from Berwang. Bichlbach is on a small branch line and the train can be caught from Garmisch-Partenkirchen. This final part of the journey takes about 40 minutes and if you let us know what time you will be arriving we will arrange for you to be collected from Bichlbach.

It is possible to drive from southern Britain to Berwang in one day but it is a very long drive. Most people bringing their own car have an overnight stop en route.
One popular stop off is Trittenheim, a village on the Mosel near the border with Luxembourg. Over the years we have established a very good relationship with Christel and Richard Schmitt, who have their own vineyards and produce their own wine in this lovely little village. The Schmitts can provide accommodation, either in their own pension, or they will organise some nearby.
Once in Trittenheim there are good walks through the vineyards, good restaurants and good wine - with the opportunity to taste a variety of the local wines. For further details contact us or look at the Schmitt's website: www.richardswein.de
Please note that this option is not part of the Berwang Holiday Music Course itself and members are expected to make their own arrangements.
Cars can be hired at Munich Airport or at Garmisch-Partenkirchen. Europcar and Avis both have outlets in Garmisch. Berwang is about a 3 hour drive from Munich Airport and about 1 hour from Garmisch.
Should you wish to hire a car for only part of the fortnight a train runs from Bichlbach-Berwang to Garmisch and takes about 40 mins.
