DAY 2 Christmas Eve Salzburg & the Christmas markets

​Today you'll visit 'The Sound of Music' city of Salzburg, whose centre has hardly changed since the times of the famous Austrian composer Mozart. On a guided walking tour discover Baroque domed churches, merchant houses, hidden arcaded courtyards and the magnificent Hohensalzburg Fortress, which dominates the city. Explore the old centre, stroll through Mozart's Square and see the charming Mirabell Gardens. Later, visit the traditional Christmas market in the Kapitelplatz, next to the splendid Dom (cathedral). Perhaps enjoy a mulled wine or two as you browse the festive stalls and shop for last-minute gifts.​

​This morning you'll visit three lakeside villages, with your first stop St Wolfgang, home to the legendary White Horse Inn. This picturesque village sits on the north shore of the Wolfgangsee, at the foot of the Schafberg Mountain. A festive market will still be in full swing and rustic stalls adorned with candles, torches and warming braziers line the narrow streets down to lake shore. You'll continue to the Mozart village of St Gilgen with its Baroque advent scene and then on to the idyllic village of Strobl, where festive decorations sparkle against the backdrop of the Wolfgangsee. Your day finishes back in Salzburg for the highlight of the day, an atmospheric Christmas concert. Return to your hotel for dinner this evening​.
