Itinerary

Day 1 – Fly to Austria

We take our scheduled flight from London to Munich (regional flights available on request – please call) where we are met by our tour manager who will accompany us throughout our tour. Transfer in our private executive coach to the 3* Lifthotel Aschaber in Kirchberg in Tirol (or similar) for a five night stay on half board basis. This evening there is a welcome drink prior to our evening meal.

Day 2 – Salzburg

Salzburg is our destination today and on arrival there is an optional guided tour around the old city taking in sights such as the Hohensalzburg Fortress, the Cathedral, Mozart’s birthplace and the Mirabell Palace and Gardens to name but a few.

Day 3 – Kitzbuhel

We visit Kitzbuhel today where we have free time to wander through the narrow cobbled streets, chic designer shops, coffee/cake houses and restaurants. You may choose to take a cable car excursion to the top of the magnificent Hahennkamm Mountain which towers over the village.

Day 4 – Tratzberg Castle, Pertisau & Lake Achensee cruise 

We start our day with a visit to the 16th century Tratzberg Castle, a romantic medieval castle sitting atop a massive rock ledge that commands breathtaking views of the Inn Valley. Having taken a small train to the castle entrance, inside are the stunning Hapsburg Rooms, the Fugger Room with Renaissance art and a wonderful armoury collection. We then head to Pertisau, a popular tourist resort on Lake Achensee where you can join our optional tour combining a cruise on Lake Achensee with a romantic steam journey on the Achensee train which dates back 120 years old and offers breathtaking views of the surrounding mountain ranges. 

Day 5 – Innsbruck & Rattenberg

Our visit to Innsbruck begins with an optional guided tour taking in the Cathedral St Jacob, Imperial Palace and the Golden Roof. After free time at leisure to explore the charms of this town or simply to relax at a streetside café and watch the world go by, we head to the delightful medieval town of Rattenberg, the oldest in the Tyrol and famous for its glass crystal ware.

Day 6 – Oberammergau Passion Play

We leave the Tyrol and travel to Oberammergau. After checking in to our allocated Category C hotels and guesthouses in and around Oberammergau followed by time for lunch, we take our Category 1 or Category 2 seats for the Passion Play. The performance runs from 2.30pm till 10.30pm until 16th August and from 1.30pm till 9.30pm from 18th August, in each case with a three hour interval for included dinner.

Day 7 – Fly home

After breakfast in Oberammergau and flight times permitting, you have the opportunity to visit the Oberammergau Museum before we transfer to Munich Airport for our scheduled flight back home.
