What’s included

Itinerary

Day 1 - To Oberndorf

Fly from the UK to Munich. From here, transfer to Oberndorf, Austria, travelling by coach. On arrival, check in to your base for the next six nights, the 4* Kaiserhof Kitzbühler Alpen Hotel.

Includes
  • Dinner
Oberndorf
Day 2 - Zell am See

Today, depart Oberndorf by rail for an excursion to Zell am See. Zell am See is one of the most scenic and well-loved 'lakes and mountains' resorts in Austria. Beautifully located, directly on the shores of Zeller Lake, it has the added advantage of being close to the Hohe Tauern Mountains and magnificent Grossglockner Mountains. Enjoy a gentle cruise across the lake, relaxing as you soak up the calming atmosphere and picturesque setting, all under the gaze of towering mountains and flower-filled meadows.

Please note: For departure 20TAF02 Days 2 & 3 have swapped around.

Includes
  • Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Zell am See
Days 3-4 - Salzburg

This morning, travel by coach to Salzburg. Renowned for its musical and cultural heritage, and known internationally as the setting for 'The Sound of Music', Salzburg is also the birthplace of Mozart, and the city's most famous son is widely celebrated here. Enjoy a guided walking tour, ahead of some free time in Austria's 4th largest city. You could choose to explore the Old Town, crowned by the imposing Hohensalzburg Fortress. Accessible on foot or by funicular railway, the castle is an incredible slice of Austria's past, and its position on a plateau overlooking the town provides exceptional views of the city - a wonderful vantage point for photographs. After time to explore, return to the hotel by coach. On Day 4 you are at leisure.

Includes
  • Day 3 - Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
  • Day 4 - Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Salzburg
Day 5 - The Eagle’s Nest

Your excursion today takes you across the border and into Germany, where you visit the Eagle's Nest. Towering at the top of a mountain above the town of Berchtesgaden, the Eagle's Nest (or Kehlsteinhaus, in German), has a dark history; it was constructed as a gift for Adolf Hitler's 50th birthday, and remained unscathed by bombing during World War II. The site was saved from post-war destruction despite its murky past, to be preserved as a historical monument. Currently the building is owned by a charitable trust, who allow guided tours to give people an insight into the atrocities committed by this dictator. After time here, descend to the town itself, for a scenic boat trip on Lake Königssee. Often considered the most beautiful lake in Germany, it is surrounded by Bavarian mountains. Your boat journey takes you to St Bartholomä, where you have some free time to explore before returning to the hotel.

Includes
  • Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Eagles Nest
Day 6 - Zillertalbahn

Today join the Zillertal Railway from Jenbach. This narrow-gauge railway was originally planned in 1863, but did not open until 1902. The line runs for 18 miles between Jenbach and Mayrhofen, and services remained popular for many years, especially among tourists, for the great views of the Tyrol region.

In the mid 1960s, the railway was threatened with closure. However, the owners pulled off the feat of not only managing to stay open, but also of increasing their services. The line has stayed open at its entire original length to the present day. Travelling aboard this wonderfully restored steamhauled* train, you get a real sense of a bygone age on the way to Mayrhofen.

*Steam-hauled where possible.

Includes
  • Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Zillertalbahn
Day 7 - Munich to the UK

After breakfast this morning, make your way back to Munich by coach for the flight to the UK.

Includes
  • Breakfast
Munich to the UK

Overall good but limited choice of meals and a very poor experience on Lake Konigssee Boats terribly overcrowded and St Bartholoma Peninsular very uninspiring. We later discovered we could had more time at Berchtesgaden where there was an exhibition about the Eagles Nest and possible to visit Hitler's Bunker.

It was everything I hoped it would be from the information I had been given before booking. I like the smaller traditional hotels in village settings with amazing scenery and local walks. The hotel was clean, modern, friendly and relaxing. The food and drink within the inclusive deal was very good and very plentiful. Excursions were very varied and interesting and well organised. It suited us well to fly then tour as opposed to getting there by rail. We were in a group of 14 people which is perhaps smaller than average but it worked very well as we got to know everyone and enjoyed their company. Austria was so beautiful and litter free! We loved it.
