Your Itinerary

HIDE FULL ITINERARY

Day 1 UK/Weyregg

Depart on your flight to Munich today. On arrival we will transfer you to your hotel in Weyregg, a village on the shore of Lake Attersee.

Day 2 Salzburg Christmas markets

Today you will get to know Salzburg on a walking tour of the Altstadt, the historic city centre renowned for its Baroque architecture and stunning churches. Afterwards, you'll have free time to explore the city further and enjoy the Christmas markets at your own pace. It's the perfect opportunity to shop for last-minute Christmas gifts or treat yourself to some tasty gingerbread.
Later, we head to the Frucht und Sinne Chocolate Manufacturers in Frankenmarkt. You'll get a behind-the-scenes tour here revealing the process of making fruit chocolates, before tasting some with a glass of wine. ​

Day 3 Christkindl, Steyr Advent Market & Mozart dinner concert

This morning you will head to the village of Christkindl. The church here was constructed in the early 18th century at the place where a local man is said to have been cured of epilepsy after he prayed to a statue of the Christ Child. You can visit the Christkindl Post Office, which opens every Christmas and stamps thousands of letters and cards with the unique Christkindl postmark, and there will also be time to admire elaborate nativity scenes and browse the Christmas market in the nearby town of Steyr.
Back at the hotel, we'll enjoy some traditional treats, a hot cup of glühwein – or mulled wine – and maroni, local chestnuts.
After time to relax, we'll return to Salzburg for an unforgettable night in the St Peter Stiftskeller. Travel back to the 18th century for a traditional candle-lit dinner while costumed musicians serenade you with the music of Salzburg's most famous figure, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

Day 4 Christmas Markets in the Salzkammergut & the Krampus Run

Today we're travelling around the Salzkammergut region, visiting the quaint towns of Bad Ischl and St Wolfgang. You'll have plenty of time to make your own discoveries, perhaps take a tour of the Kaiservilla in Bad Ischl or browse the stalls decorated with twinkling lights at St Wolfgang's Christmas market. If you wish, you could also take a horse-and-carriage ride, the perfect way to see more of St Wolfgang and its surrounds. This evening brings with it the Krampus Run, a traditional event where people in horned masks and elaborate costumes parade through the streets ringing ominous bells. According to legend, the Krampus, a half-goat, half-demon figure, is the scary opposite of Saint Nicholas. While Saint Nicholas rewards children who have been good, Krampus punishes naughty children, and this spooky parade dates back 500 years. ​
 

Day 5 Weyregg/UK

​This morning after breakfast we'll transfer you to the airport for your flight home.
