Afterwards, there will be free time for you to explore the sights at your leisure. Perhaps take a short walk along the Salzach River or treat yourself to a panoramic view of the city from the Hohensalzburg Fortress (at own cost). The funicular is a fast and convenient way to get up to the fortress and back down to the Old City. Be sure to saunter along the Getreidegasse, Salzburg’s most popular shopping mile.
During the Advent season, the largest attraction has to be the Christmas markets which are located on Cathedral and Residenz Square in the heart of the historic city centre. Here you will experience the incredible old Austrian tradition and find the most wonderful Christmas presents for your loved ones at home.
Whilst in Salzburg be sure to spend time in one of the city’s traditional coffeehouses set against the backdrop of stunning architecture and busy squares. Order a piece of Mozart cake and a coffee or, if you prefer, relax with a warming Glühwein – the choice is yours!

Our full day optional excursion (included on Silver Service & Luxuria) takes us to Innsbruck, the ‘capital of the Tyrol’. Located on the River Inn and at the foot of the Karwendel Alps, Innsbruck is the fifth largest city in Austria. This beautiful city is surrounded by stunning mountain scenery and steeped in history. Innsbruck was host to the Olympic Winter Games in 1964 and again in 1976.
During your free time you can explore the array of Christmas stalls with the traditional market-taking place in the heart of the historic Old Town and overlooked by the famous Golden Roof. Here visitors from all over the world come together to enjoy the wonderful Christmas atmosphere. There are over 70 stalls filled with tree decorations, arts and crafts and a few curiosities! A cup of Glühwein will keep you warm whilst you mingle with the locals. Be sure to wander down Innsbruck’s main shopping street the Maria-Theresien-Straße. Here you will be dazzled by lights, glass and crystal whilst browsing the modern stalls selling international Christmas products.
If you fancy escaping the hustle and bustle of the centre, climb aboard the Hungerburgbahn funicular (at own cost) to reach the Hungerburg mountain station where you are guaranteed breath-taking views of Innsbruck. From here you can also hop aboard the panoramic cable car and continue on up to the Seegrube where you can have lunch at the restaurant or go to the highest viewpoint to the Hafelekar at 2,256m.

Our included excursion takes us over the border into Germany and to Munich, the capital of Bavaria and third largest city after Berlin and Hamburg. A perfect way to get the most of your visit is by joining our guide on an optional sightseeing tour of the city. Afterwards there will be free time for you to explore at your leisure.
At the heart of the city is the Marienplatz, a large open square named after the Mariensäule, a Marian column in its centre. The square is dominated by the New Town Hall or Neues Rathaus as it is locally known. Its tower contains the Rathaus-Glockenspeil which dates from 1908.
Take in the atmosphere of the Christmas Market (Christkindlmarkt), which dates back to the 14th century. The market offers traditional Bavarian and unique Christmas gifts including woodcarvings from Oberammergau, gingerbread (Lebkuchen) from Nuremberg and notably some exquisite glassware from the Bavarian Forest. Crib figurines, beeswax candles and chimney sweeps made of plums and almonds are just some of the many traditional gift ideas on display.
After finding those all-important gifts, perhaps take a seat in one of Munich’s famous beer halls and try the regional speciality – wheat beer. We return to the hotel later this afternoon then, this evening, why not join an optional horse and carriage ride through the local countryside?
Included meals:Breakfast, Dinner
We leave our hotel after an early breakfast and commence our journey north through Germany and into Belgium to our overnight hotel.
