A highlight of our exciting itinerary is a visit to the notorious Eagles Nest - Hitler’s renowned retreat. This daunting structure is perched high on a mountain peak in the Bavarian Alps and accessed via a brass lift through the heart of the mountain. Other gems include a day in impressive Innsbruck and an excursion to the landmark resort of Kitzbuhel - a medieval town with an alpine flower garden, fifteenth century church and a museum telling the story of the region. If you choose to travel in September, a memorable treat will be the Almabtrieb – a festival marking the start of autumn with a colourful parade of decorated cows. Holidaymakers on other dates will find our excursion to Zell am See a wonderful alternative.
