About the Tour

Enjoy a traditional Austrian Christmas, amidst superb Christmas scenery on this fully escorted coach holiday. From our hotel in the Austrian Tyrol, we begin with a journey across the amazing Brenner Pass into the Italian Süd Tirol, where we spend time in the beautiful town of Brixen. On Christmas Eve, relax in resort, or why not join us for a trip to Innsbruck, to really get you in the festive spirit. Admire the Christmas markets, see the Golden Roof and do some last-minute shopping along the Maria Theresien Strasse. Before we indulge in a delightful Christmas dinner, on Christmas Day, why not enjoy a horse and carriage ride through the local area. Before we return home, we spend Boxing Day in Bavaria, where we see famous fairy tale castles of Hohenschwangau and Neuschwanstein and visit Füssen, with its pretty Old Town.
