DAY 4 ~ 22 DECEMBER Kirchberg
DAY 6 ~ 24 DECEMBER Kirchberg
Following the spectacular Inn Valley to Wattens we visit the Swarovski ‘Kristallwelten’ (‘Crystal Worlds’)… a weird and wonderful crystal experience. Later we continue to the nearby winter resort city of Innsbruck where we spend the rest of the day exploring the Old Town with its famous ’Golden Roof’ above the medieval town square and delightful Christmas Markets. Time to do that last minute shopping, indulge in the mulled wine and ginger biscuits and take in the music, fabulously decorated trees and folklore displays. Spoil yourself with a traditional tall aromatic coffee and a calorie-busting apfel strudel! Meals: B,D DAY 5 ~ 23 DECEMBER Kirchberg Heading deep into the Bavarian mountains we visit the old Salt Mines near Berchtesgaden. After dressing up in a salt miner’s uniform, we enjoy a fun filled ride on a small train deep underground, take wooden slides (or steps) and then float on a barge across a crystal clear underground lake, beautifully illuminated by a light show. Lunchtime will be spent amongst the cobbled streets of Berchtesgaden. Later we visit perhaps the most beautiful lake of all, Königssee - famous the world over for its steep cliffs and fjord-like lake. We have included a relaxing cruise along the length of the lake to visit the romantic pilgrimage church on St Bartholomew Island. Meals: B,D
Christmas Eve – There is nothing quite like a day in the mountains! The highlight of today will be your ride in a horse-drawn carriage through the local countryside, suitably warmed with some mulled wine while enjoying the dramatic, snow laden mountains and breathtaking scenery surrounding you. Afterwards maybe take a ‘winter walk’, hire skis or a toboggan and play in the snow. Tonight, enjoy a traditional
Christmas Eve dinner. Meals: B,D DAY 7 ~ 25 DECEMBER Kirchberg
