European Retiree Escapes

We are once again bringing back our famous European Escapes retiree packages once again. With all the unknowns these days comes a lot of stress. Nothing could feel better than to escape reality for a few days. Experience the wonderful scenery and culture of Bavaria. Get out once again and start enjoying life. 

We worked together with our tour guides and put together an incredible array of packages that give any guest a great overview of the Bavarian culture, scenery and history. 

Edelweiss Lodge and Resort offers military retirees and their spouses the vacation of a lifetime in one of the most spectacular settings in Europe. Our full-service European Escapes package includes a personal meet and greet at Munich International Airport, private bus transportation to all destinations with a professional English-speaking guide and a ten-night stay at the Edelweiss Lodge and Resort.

Our goal is to provide our guests with a safe, exciting and memorable experience in and around the charming town of Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany. The combination of superb facilities, eager-to-please staff, and spectacular location allows retirees to focus on having a great time while we take care of the rest. Travel with like-minded people and make new friends. Share a few laughs. See some beautiful scenery. Learn about the culture. Leave all the planning to us. All you have to do is get here.
