Stunning Alpine Austria

Stunning Alpine Austria

When people think of Austria they probably think of something like the opening scene of The Sound of Music – Maria dancing in high green fields with bright skies and rolling countryside that will make you want to sing. As well as the fresh mountain air and idyllic scenery, this fabulous European country also is home to culturally sophisticated cities, quirky modern art galleries and breath-taking architecture. On this popular early season tour we enjoy some of the highlights this country has to offer including the beautiful city of Salzburg; birthplace of Mozart that sits majestically astride the Salzack River, Innsbruck; capital of the Tyrol region in an exceptional setting where city, culture and nature come together, and the stunning Alpine lakes of Achensee and Zeller See with their crystal clear blue water. With a packed programme of activities there is something for everyone on this tour and Austria is definitely a destination that should be on everyone’s travel list..

 

Your Itinerary

Tuesday 12th: We leave this morning heading south to Dover where we take our short
sea crossing to Calais. We then travel through Belgium into Germany for our overnight
dinner, bed and breakfast.

Wednesday 13th: We continue today through Germany into Austria and onto our main
holiday destination in Aschaber and the Lifthotel.

Thursday 14th: Today travel the short distance to the lovely town of Kitzbühel to enjoy
a horse drawn carriage ride and free time before heading on to Zell am See a
quintessential Austrian resort, a compact town of picture-postcard perfection, with a lake on
one side and an impressive mountain hinterland on the other.

Friday 15th: Today we head over the beautiful Old Brenner Pass over the Italian border to
the small town of Vipiteno returning via the New Brenner Pass to Innsbruck the capital of
the Austrian Tyrol, which has many attractions including the old quarter with its cobbled
streets where you can stroll round the charming shops and cafes.

Saturday 16th: Full day excursion takes us to the magical city of Salzburg. We include
a guide to help familiarize you with the home of one of the world’s most famous composers
– Mozart. With plenty of Museums, stunning houses and bustling squares you certainly
won’t get bored.

Sunday 17th: Today we take a scenic drive to the beautiful Lake Achensee. We
then continue on to Rattenberg, on the River Inn, the smallest city in the Tyrol. It is a
serious glass-making centre and a walk down the main street, Sudtirolerstraase, brings
this to life with shop after shop displaying high quality crystal and glass products and
antiques. This afternoon we also enjoy an apple strudel show and visit Kisslinger Glass
Blowers in the town.

Monday 18th: Sadly it’s time to leave Kirchberg and start our journey homeward out
of Austria back to the German/Belgium borders for our overnight stay.

Tuesday 19th: We continue our journey home taking the short Calais to Dover
sea crossing for our final leg of the journey home.
