  • DAY 2 Christmas Eve Salzburg & a Christmas market
  • ​Today we'll visit 'The Sound of Music' city Salzburg, one of Europe's best preserved historic cities. On a guided walking tour you'll learn that the centre has hardly changed since the times of famous Austrian composer Mozart. Discover Baroque domed churches, merchant houses and hidden arcaded courtyards dominated by the magnificent Hohensalzburg Fortress. Other highlights worth a visit are Mozart's Square and the charming Mirabell Gardens. Later, we'll visit the traditional Christmas market in the Kapitelplatz, next to the splendid cathedral. Perhaps enjoy a mulled wine or two as you browse the festive stalls and shop for last-minute gifts.​

You've a real festive treat to look forward to this afternoon, a romantic horse-drawn sleigh ride through the snowy winter wonderland. Tonight at the hotel, the celebrations continue with an evening of live music.
  • DAY 4 Boxing Day Lakeside villages
  • ​After breakfast this morning we're going to visit three lakeside villages. St Wolfgang is our first stop, home to the legendary White Horse Inn. Sat on the north shore of the Wolfgangsee and at the foot of the Schafberg mountain, this picturesque place is home to narrow cobbled streets lined with tall ancient buildings. A festive market will still be in full swing, and you'll have time to browse the rustic stalls decorated with twinkling lights. We'll also visit the pretty village of St Gilgen, where Advent candles adorn the streets and houses and Stobl, with its enchanting nativity scenes. Later we'll return to Salzburg and enjoy a Christmas concert, which is sure to be a highlight of our holiday.
