Your Itinerary

  • Arrive in Munich, the capital of Bavaria, where you’ll meet your tour manager and be transferred to your hotel in Alpbach. Upon arrival, you’ll be greeted with a complimentary welcome drink and have time to get settled in before dinner.

     

  • Once breakfast is finished, your tour manager will you introduce to Alpbach, leading you on a short walk.  

    You can then decide to spend the day in Alpbach, exploring at your own pace, joining your tour manager for a trip up into the Alpbach mountains or venturing up by yourself.  

    If you’re keen to ascend the alps, you’ll be shown how to get an Alpbachtal Card. This card entitles you to free public transport, so you can travel up the mountain in a cable car or enter any of the museums.  

    When you’ve had your fill of fresh mountain air, you can return to the town and use it to visit the local museums during the afternoon.  

    Dinner tonight can be enjoyed back at the hotel’s on-site restaurant.

  • After breakfast, you have a full day of exploring aboard the coach. You’ll start by meeting your tour manager and then setting off to the surrounding sights of the city. In the Old Town, the Goldenes Dachl, which translates to ‘Golden Roof’ is a highlight of the tour and is considered Innsbruck’s most famous symbol.

    The Roman-inspired Triumphal Arch is another point of interest and looks even more striking with the backdrop of snow-capped peaks. You’ll also get to enter the Hofburg, a former imperial palace of the Habsburg dynasty, dating back to the 13th century.

    In the evening, you can head back to your hotel for dinner.

  • Following breakfast, you’ll embark on another enrapturing journey by coach. On the way, you’ll have the opportunity to stop at Rattenburg, Austria’s smallest city, on the banks of the Inn River and tuck into some coffee and cake (on your account).

    When the tour reaches Achensee Lake, the largest lake in Tyrol, you’ll take to the waters by boat and travel for 35 minutes across to Achenkirch, a charming, traditional village of wooden chalets, fringed by fir trees.

    Later in the afternoon, you’ll return to your hotel to unwind and have dinner.

     

  • Today, you can fuel up on breakfast and choose to join an optional excursion. You’ll travel by coach from Alpbach to Mayrhofen, a popular town for outdoor enthusiasts with its alpine peaks perfect for skiing in the winter. The tour will stop here, giving you time to have coffee and cake (on your own account) while soaking up the spectacular surroundings.

    The coach will then travel up to the Hintertux Glacier, Austria’s only year-round ski region. You’ll be taken to the highest of three stations, sitting at 3,250 meters. This station has a panorama observation deck offering an incredible vista of the mountaintops below.

    You’ll then head back to your hotel for dinner after a scenic drive.

  • After breakfast, you’ll jump on the coach again for a trip to Salzburg, sitting on the border of Germany and looking out over the Eastern Alps. Interspersed by the Salzach River, this city is awash with an array of architecture, ranging from medieval to baroque.

    You’ll meet your local guide and then be led through the streets, passing by notable landmarks, and learning about Salzburg’s intriguing history. Following in the steps of Mozart, you’ll walk to Getreidegasse, a shopping street in the Old Town, Altstadt – a UNESCO World Heritage Site and his birthplace. You’ll be able to view the Salzburg Cathedral with its grand dome and two towers and the Alter Markt square, encircled by stately houses.

    Following the day of activity, you’ll make your way back to the hotel and have dinner.

  • Make the most of your last full day, and after breakfast board the coach to the picturesque town of Zell am See, set on a lake. You’ll have some time to wander around this well-loved resort or choose to take the optional excursion to the nearby Salzburg Glacier.  

    About a 20 minutes’ drive from Zell am See, the Salzburg Glacier is 3,028 m above sea level, and the top can be reached using the Glacier Aerial Tramway. After you’ve reached the summit and embraced the view, you’ll return to collect the other guests.  

    The tour will then continue to Kitzbuhel, a fashionable alpine resort, home to boutiques cafés, and a grand medieval square. Here, you can do some shopping and have an amble around.  

    You’ll return to the hotel for your final evening and dinner.  

  • Check out of your hotel and transfer back to Munich, a journey which will take two hours, for your flight back to the UK.

Further Information

  • We sometimes need to combine transfers to and from your hotel. We always try to keep any wait to a minimum, but you may be asked to wait at the airport for up to an hour, while other incoming flights arrive, before the transfer to your hotel. Similarly, we may need to transfer you back to the airport up to three hours before your flight home departs.

  • If you have notified us of any special requirements, please check that they have been noted and acknowledged. This is especially important with any dietary needs you may have.

  • The majority of our tours involve a certain amount of walking, including a short walk from the coach stop to the town, attraction or venue you're visiting. If you are bringing a wheelchair, please let us know at the time of booking so that appropriate arrangements can be made.

  • Occasionally, for operational reasons, we may have to change the order of the excursions on your holiday. The final day-by-day itinerary will be confirmed on your Final Travel Documents, which you will receive approximately three weeks prior to your departure.

  • Visit www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice to find out the latest Foreign And Commonwealth Office travel advice for your holiday destination, as well as information about passports and visas.

  • Rules may have changed since you last travelled to European Union countries and Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland. The following are useful guidelines which will help you prepare for your next adventure. Note that these new rules do NOT apply when travelling within the United Kingdom or to the Channel Islands, the Isle of Man or the Republic of Ireland. You do require government issued ID when travelling by air though.

    Passport

    Your passport must meet two requirements to travel to an EU country and to Switzerland, Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein. It must be:

    • Less than 10 years old on the day you return home – please check the "date of issue"
    • Valid for at least 3 months after the day you return home – please check the "expiry date"

    These rules do not apply to travel to Ireland where you can continue to use your passport as long as it’s valid for the length of your stay.

    Visa

    If you’re a tourist, you do not need a visa for short trips to most EU countries, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland. You’ll be able to stay for up to 90 days in any rolling 180-day period. Different rules will apply to Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus and Romania; if you visit these countries, visits to other EU countries will not count towards the 90-day total. Travel to Ireland will not change and stays there will not count towards the 90-day total.

    European Travel Information & Authorisation System (ETIAS)

    Towards the end of 2022, it is likely that non EU citizens will be required to apply online for an authorisation to visit most European countries. The current details suggest there will be a charge of €7 per person and the authorisation will be valid for all trips made to the EU in a three year period from issue. We will advise you of confirmed details prior to your tour’s departure.

    Border Control

    At border control, you may need to show proof of your return journey - your travel documentation issued by us will be sufficient for this. You will also need to use separate lanes from EU, EEA and Swiss citizens if manual checks are required.

    Healthcare Cover

    You should always get appropriate travel insurance with healthcare cover before you go abroad which covers pre-existing conditions. You should understand the terms and conditions of your travel insurance and be happy with its cover for healthcare and travel disruption. Newmarket sell a comprehensive travel insurance policy. Ask our travel consultants for more information.

    You should also apply for a UK Global Heath Insurance Card (GHIC) which lets you get urgent state healthcare in Europe at a reduced cost or sometimes for free. Note GHIC is only valid in EU countries and not in Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland.

    Mobile Roaming

    Roaming charges are applied by some UK providers when visiting the EU, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland. Prior to travel, please do check with your phone operator for the most up to date information.
