Day 2 Christmas Eve Kitzbühel
We'll get into the festive spirit today with an included visit to Kitzbühel, one of Austria's most stylish ski resorts. Nestled in the heart of the Kitzbühel Alps, this small medieval town backed by snow-capped mountains is picture-postcard pretty, and we'll enjoy a guided tour here.
If there has been plenty of snow, we'll also enjoy a horse-drawn sleigh ride, and on Christmas Eve there can be no better way of soaking up the lovely wintry scenery.
Day 3 Christmas Day Salzburg
It's Christmas Day and we're going to gather together and set off on a walking tour of Salzburg. Known as 'The Sound of Music' city because of its links with the famous Trapp Family Singers and the famous film linked to their story, it is also the birthplace of the composer Mozart.
One of Europe's best-preserved historic cities, its Old Town has barely changed since the 18th century and a sightseeing highlight is the magnificent Hohensalzburg Fortress. We'll also see splendid palaces and Baroque buildings, Mozart's Square, the twin-towered cathedral and the elegant Mirabell Gardens.
We'll be back to the hotel in plenty of time to get ready for this evening's Christmas dinner.
Day 4 BOXING DAY Southern Bavaria
Today an optional excursion takes us to the pretty town of Berchtesgaden in Southern Bavaria, which is surrounded by the towering peaks of the Bavarian Alps. There are plenty of traditional shops and cafes here, as well as a palace and Bavarian beer halls. During the Second World War the town was the HQ for the rulers of the Third Reich, and Hitler's retreat the Eagle's Nest is perched high above the town.
This evening we'll gather together and head to St Peter's Cellar in Salzburg. This is one of Europe's oldest restaurants, and we'll enjoy a concert of Mozart's music and dinner here.
Day 5 Salzburg to UK
We'll transfer to Munich airport today for our flight back to the UK.
