Itinerary

  • Day 1

    Door to Door departure, then by coach to Assmannshausen, Germany for a three-night stay.

  • Day 2 - Rüdesheim

    Today we travel the short distance to the ever-popular ‘wine town’ of Rüdesheim. Home to the vibrant ‘Drosselgasse’, a narrow alley lined with restaurants, shops and bars, many playing traditional Rhineland music and the perfect place to enjoy a glass of local wine or beer. Why not join our optional ‘Exploring Rüdesheim’ excursion. We travel by road train to the cellars of Adolf Störzel where there will be the chance to sample some of the local produce. From here we continue to Siegfried’s Mechanical Music Museum, where you can see one of the largest collections of self-playing mechanical musical instruments. Your guide will tell you about the various instruments and you will have the chance to listen to many of the instruments and fairground organs play their different tunes.

  • Day 3 - Free Time or Rhine Valley

    Marvel at the beautiful scenery of the Rhine Valley on today’s optional excursion. We see the world-famous Loreley Rock; and then continue to Boppard, where the splendid Rhine Promenade is situated. Later we visit St. Goar, home to the world’s largest cuckoo clock shop. During the day there will be the chance to join an optional cruise along Germany’s largest river, the Rhine. A cruise through the Rhine Gorge, famous for its ancient castles, picturesque villages and vine clad slopes is the perfect way to view the splendour of the Rhine. The cruise will last for approximately 2 ½ hours during which time you will be served lunch on board.

  • Day 4 - Heidelberg

    We depart the Rhine Valley today and make our way to Austria. En route we pause in the beautiful town of Heidelberg. Heidelberg is rightly famous due to its proximity to the Neckar River, its fabulous castle, now partially destroyed, and its 18th century streets. After free time we continue to our hotel in the Austrian Tyrol where we stay for the next four nights.

    Meals - Breakfast, Dinner

  • Day 5 - Salzburg

    Today we include a visit to Salzburg, one of the most beautiful cities in Austria. Why not join our optional guided walking tour accompanied by our local English-speaking guide. This walking tour lasts approximately 90 minutes and takes in the many sights and attractions of this famous alpine city. Admire the baroque splendour of the churches and cathedral, the might of the Hohensalzburg fortress and also the quaint Getriedegasse, which with its wrought iron signs that overhang the doors, is one of the most beautiful shopping streets of Austria. Salzburg is also known as the ‘Sound of Music’ city and during our tour you will see many sights featured in the film. A visit to Salzburg would not be complete without a mention of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and before the tour is over we see his former birthhouse and also the square that is named after and dedicated to the famous composer. The remainder of the day is spent at leisure for you to explore independently.

    Meals - Breakfast, Dinner

  • Day 6 - Free Time or Grossglockner Glacier

    There is probably nowhere in Europe with such a dramatic tour as you can experience on today’s optional excursion. Our coach takes us along the Grossglockner Hochalpenstrasse and up the Grossglockner. At 3,789 metres it is Austria’s highest mountain and here you can view the icy world of the massive Grossglockner Glacier. Following a visit to the magnificently situated Franz-Josefs-Heights panorama-viewing platform, we drive to the lovely mountaineer’s village of Heiligenblut where there will be further free time for you to explore the shops or simply relax in one of the cafés.
