Your itinerary

Today you will fly to Munich, where on arrival we'll be waiting to transfer you to your hotel in the small village of St Georgen im Attergau. Once you've settled in, you're free to relax, explore the area, and meet your fellow travellers.

It's time for your first experience of Austria's legendary Christmas markets in scenic Salzburg, which you may recognise if you're a fan of 'The Sound of Music'. You'll be taken on a guided tour of the Altstadt, the historic city centre characterised by several stunning churches, before you're free to enjoy the Christmas markets at your own pace. It's the perfect opportunity to grab a souvenir or Christmas gift!
Once you're back at the hotel, it's time for some traditional festive treats. Sip on a hot cup of glühwein – or mulled wine – and snack on the chestnuts known locally as maroni.

Don't forget your camera today, as the Christmas markets you'll visit are situated in two spectacular castles by Lake Traunsee. This event, known as the Advent in Castles, was voted the best Christmas market in Upper Austria in 2018. You can choose to travel here by boat or miniature train, and after shopping in this picturesque destination, 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 the goods with a glass of wine.
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.

Today we're hopping around the Salzkammergut region, visiting quaint towns such as Bad Ischl and St Wolfgang. Choose between snacking on lebkuchen in the markets, touring elegant villas or going for a horse-and-carriage ride through the towns.
We'll head to Salzburg in the evening 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.

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