About the Tour

Experience four countries this Christmas, as we offer you a taste of Austria, Germany, Switzerland and Lichtenstein. To really get you in the festive spirit, we begin on Christmas Eve, with a visit to the fairy tale castles of Bavaria, including the famous Neuschwanstein Castle. On Christmas Day, we cross the border into Switzerland, where we take a journey on the world-famous Swiss Glacier Express and travel through spectacular mountain scenery. We also spend time exploring Vaduz, Liechtenstein’s capital. On Boxing Day, relax in resort, or why not join us as we make a visit to the winter resort of St. Anton and the chic resort of Lech, both in Austria and the perfect way to end your magical Christmas coach holiday.
