Itinerary

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.

Hotel Krone, Oberperfuss 

This delightful hotel, owned and managed by the friendly Niederkircher Family, is set in the heart of a small village.

Hotel transfer times

The transfer time from the airport to your hotel is approximately two hours.

Would recommend Austria to anyone who loves picturesque mountains views constantly. however I don't think Newmarket should list this holiday as 'Christmas' in Austria as when we went to Kitzbuheler Christmas markets on Christmas eve they were all shut so was pointless couple hours there really. Also the Itinerary said then when transferred to Munich Airport before flight home we would have change to enjoy Christmas Markets, again these were non existent and never mentioned by Tour Manager so not sure if just meant the duty free shops at airport but felt mis lead by fasle advertising from Newmarket on this one.

Although Tour Manager Phill was incredibly friendly and polite throughout trip I felt he could of done more to suggest things to do and see in area of we were staying and also some of the places we visited. For instance 10mins walk from the Hotel is a ski lift upto the Mountains that can go up for free if get card from the hotel. only learnt this information on the last day from another person on the tour and was well worth going up fot the glorious sights but surprised this was not promoted by Tour Manager himself. simally in Seefeld me and my partner went on a lovely Horse and cart ride around the town that we were fortunate to come across and again this is something that Tour Manager could of suggested if people wanted to do.

The staff in the Hotel Krone were exceptional throughout the stay and made us feel that we were welcomed into there home not just a hotel. nothing was to much of a problem for them and I loved how felt part of there community wist staying there with the lantern Tour of Oberperfuss with the Owner and the farewell concert with the townsfolk. all the food there was excellent and don't have a bad word to say about stay at Hotel Krone at all.

Good holiday spoilt by EasyJet cancelling our late flight home and telling us to find our own way. Fortunately, we still had our Tour Manager Phil with us who was marvellous and made all arrangements.
