Encircling the Alps, each of these cities, towns, and villages inspires the imagination in its own unique way. The one-of-a kind canals of Venice create a magical mood. The Black Forest in Germany evokes a world of Brothers Grimm fairy tales. Bavarian Munich proudly displays its folkloric traditions, while the dramatic mountain scenery of Adelboden sets an awe-inspiring tone. You will also make a special visit to Our Chalet, the oldest of the five WAGGGS Centres, located in the splendid Swiss Alps.
