Festive fun in Germany and Austria
Join us to discover how the festive season is celebrated in the Bavarian capital and in Mozart's birthplace. From Munich's bustling market on the Marienplatz to the traditional market on Salzburg's Cathedral Square, as the traders and craftsmen open their stalls, each city becomes a delightful Christmas wonderland.
Fly to Munich, and board our coach for the transfer to your chosen hotel.
Join our included guided tour of Munich and discover the highlights of this compact city. Gothic churches - including the great onion-domed cathedral - the Bavarian State Opera house, elegant Maximilianstrasse and the iconic buildings of the 1972 Olympic Park all contribute to Munich's appeal.
After the tour, you'll be free to enjoy the magical Christmas Markets. In addition to the colourful market beneath the towering Rathaus (town hall) on Marienplatz you'll find Christmas markets for everyone - from the marvellous children's workshop market, and the Krippenmarkt dedicated to hand-crafted nativity scenes, to the medieval Christmas market at Odeonsplatz.
Today's full-day included excursion travels to the beautiful Austrian city of Salzburg. Here, in Mozart's birthplace, the festive season is celebrated at a traditional Christmas market with stalls laid out in the central Cathedral Square.
While here, don't miss the chance to visit the city's castle, which towers 400 feet above the city and offers predictably wonderful views, and cathedral.

Hotel transfer times
