Day One

Fly to Munich and head through the Bavarian countryside into Austria. Our Tyrolean Christmas is based in the traditional village of Oberperfuss, set beneath the Rangger Kopfl mountains - 15 km west of regional capital Innsbruck and close to the well-known cross-country skiing Mecca of Seefeld.

Day Two

Explore the beautiful city of Innsbruck, with its elegant main street, Maria-Theresien-Strasse. Look for unusual gifts among the wooden stalls of the colourful Christmas Market, nestled beneath the famous copper-tiled 'Golden Roof'. Be sure to stop for 'coffee and cake' at one of countless cafes in the Altstadt, this sparkling Alpine jewel's magical heart.

This evening enjoy a guided pre-dinner festive 'lantern walk' in the company of your hosts.

Day Three (Christmas Eve)

Today's optional excursion offers the chance to visit the town of Kitzbuhel to explore its delightful Christmas market, before we board the Zell am See steam train to Mittersill. We'll conclude our day trip with a stop in Rattenberg, known for its crystal glass stores.

Upon returning to Oberperfuss, enjoy a traditional Christmas Eve snack of gluhwein (mulled wine) and cookies, before sitting down to a festive Austrian dinner this evening.

Day Four (Christmas Day)

Today, pay a visit to the delightful nearby resort of Seefeld, before sitting down to a three-course Christmas Day turkey lunch at your hotel. After a relaxed afternoon, dinner will also be served.

Day Five (Boxing Day)

This morning, there's the chance to head to the unusual, but fascinating and spectacular, Swarovski Crystal Worlds on an optional excursion. See crystals large and small, and artworks by the likes of Andy Warhol and Salvador Dali, in a state-of-the-art subterranean space - one of the most striking sights of the whole holiday.

Round off a wonderful festive break with a four-course farewell dinner at the hotel, accompanied by traditional Tyrolean live music.

Day Six

Bid 'auf wiedersehen' to your Austrian hosts, before you transfer back to Munich for your return flight.

Oberperfuss was too quiet, nothing at all to do when arriving back at the hotel. The hotel bar was shut on our arrival night and we should have been all together introducing ourselves.
The trips out were superb but we had to return far too early-3.30 and 2.30 (Fri and Sat). We found out about buses ourselves-no guidance from the tour operator-and asked to be dropped at Innsbruck so we could get the cable car. No problems, even though my partner has a disability scooter.
The food was certainly not wonderful-I am used to and like most German foods but SEMOLINA DUMPLINGS FOR PUDDING ON OUR FIRST NIGHT!!!! Nobody ate them all. Christmas dinner was wonderful.
The dining room was more like a canteen with small tables-much better when we put a few together. We were expected to stay on those tables, not move around to acquaint ourselves with others.The staff were very nice mostly but things were done for their convenience, not ours. Certainly not a very Christmassy feel to the place. I should have liked a warmer feel with a few more Christmas touches-we found a fabulous hotel in Kitzbuhl for lunch-so warm, friendly and Christmassy.

Partially ruined by an inept tour manager. Everything that could go wrong he made sure it did. From losing people, losing himself, misdirecting the coach driver, wrong information regarding excursion, misinformation regarding tap water at meal times, and so on.

Firstly we enjoyed our holiday as Austria is a wonderful country, however we have some concerns as follows:
The positive elements were : Clean hotel with some very nice food, Freddie, our bar tender, was excellent and polite, a credit to the hotel.
Negatives for the hotel : There was a rude (male) waiter who served us the food in the restaurant, from previous comments last year he sounds like the same member of staff who customers complained about. We waited fifty minutes one evening between the soup course and the main, only two staff serving ( again exactly like previous comments) this staff member was curt and had no time for us Brits, however he appeared to be a better with the Dutch guests.
There is no where on your web page that states its a cash only hotel, this is a big negative as many other hotels world wide allows guests to charge drinks on the room. one evening I forgot to pay for some bottled water and was made to feel as if I were a thief.
We asked the male owner if they could book us a cab, he offered to take us in his car, four adults passengers squashed in the small car made for an uncomfortable drive into Innsbruck. he charged us 35.00 euros, only the return journey with a metered cab we were charged 31.00 euros, we feel he ripped his own guests off by over charging us.
Roger the guide was very polite but sadly got his timings wrong and we nearly missed our flight back to Gatwick.
