Tour Overview

Spend Christmas in 'The Sound of Music' city Salzburg, where you'll discover a scenic wintry wonderland. You'll visit the stylish Austrian ski resort of Kitzbühel, where a horse-drawn sleigh ride adds a touch of magic to your Christmas Eve, and on Christmas Day you'll see Salzburg's highlights, including the magnificent Hohensalzburg Fortress. An optional trip takes you to Southern Bavaria, and the town of Berchtesgaden, over which sits Hitler's wartime retreat the Eagle's Nest. Salzburg is also famed as the birthplace of the composer Mozart, and an evening of his music in one of Europe's oldest restaurants rounds off this break perfectly.
