Itinerary

Description

Join us to discover the beauty of the Tyrolean Mountains in a truly memorable way! As part of the Mountain in Flames festival, a summer solstice tradition dating back over 500 years, we will see fires lit throughout the valley creating an impressive spectacle. We’ll also explore beautiful Innsbruck with its snow-capped peaks and take a cruise along the picturesque Lake Aachen – a chance to relax and take in more of the spectacular scenery.

Air Itinerary

Day 1
We fly to Munich and transfer to our hotel in the Austrian Tyrol.

Day 2 – Tyrolean Farmhouse Museum, Rattenberg & Kisslinger glass blowing factory
First today we visit the Tyrolean Farmhouse Museum, just outside Rattenberg, where original examples of rural farmhouses and annexed buildings have been brought together in the largest open-air museum in Tyrol, giving visitors a flavour of Alpine farming life.

Then we continue to Rattenberg, the smallest town in Austria, with a picturesque, well-preserved medieval centre and rows of brightly painted townhouses. We’ll also enjoy a visit the Kisslinger glass blowing factory – Rattenberg has a long history of glass-blowing and this is our chance to learn more about it.

Day 3 – Innsbruck & Swarovski Crystal Worlds
Our day begins with a guided tour of the beautiful city of Innsbruck with its magnificent backdrop of snow-capped peaks. There is plenty to see around the city, including the Old Town and the Golden Roof, built for Emperor Maximilian I as a royal box from which to view tournaments in the square below.

Dedicated to celebrating the iconic crystal, the Swarovski Crystal Worlds is a fascinating and dazzling place to visit and is our final point of call today. The crystal cutting company Swarovski was founded in the small Tyrolean town of Wattens in 1895. Enjoy the multi-sensory experience here and of course don’t forget to visit the largest Swarovski flagship store.


Day 4 – Mountain in Flames
We spend the day at leisure then in the late afternoon, we leave our hotel and ascend the Hartkaiser Gondola Lift. We’ll then enjoy a barbecue and some live music before experiencing the Mountain in Flames. At the time of the summer solstice, fires are ignited on the peaks and mountainsides. The fires are lit to intensify the power of the sun and keep evil away from people and animals. Take in the spectacular sight of hundreds of mountain fires on these stunning peaks.

Day 5 – Lake Aachen Boat Cruise
Today we enjoy a panoramic boat cruise across Lake Aachen, from Pertisau to Scholastika. The lake is set against the imposing backdrop of the Karwendel Mountains, and allows us to take in the spectacular scenery from a different perspective.

Day 6  
We check out of our hotel and transfer to the airport for our flight home.
