icon Day 3 Herrenchiemsee

Location: Herrenchiemsee

Today we explore the winter landscape of Lake Chiemsee. Often called “the Bavarian Sea” we take a boat to Herreninsel Island (“Men Island”), where we will visit the famous Herrenchiemsee Palace. This Palace was built by King Ludwig II of Bavaria in 1878 and was meant to be a replica of the Palace of Versailles, however it was never completed. We continue by boat to Frauenchiemsee Island. The smaller of the two islands, Frauenchiemsee houses a Benedictine nunnery and a small village. After free time we return by boat to Prien, where there will be an opportunity to enjoy an optional horse and carriage ride through the winter countryside, before you return to the hotel.

icon Day 4 Berchtesgaden Salt Mine

Location: Berchtesgaden Salt Mine

After breakfast we travel to Berchtesgaden where we visit one of Europe’s oldest salt mines. Dressed in miner’s clothing we take an exciting trip through the salt mine enjoying rides on a train, a raft and a slide. This afternoon we offer an optional panoramic boat ride on the picturesque Lake Königssee, where we can enjoy the stunning views and listen to the world-famous echo in front of the unique mountain backdrop.

icon Day 5 Salzburg

Location: Salzburg

Today we include a visit to Salzburg, one of the most beautiful cities in Austria. Salzburg has something to offer every visitor, from lovely squares and medieval lanes to Gothic churches and quaint cafés. The city dates back to Celtic times and prospered in the Middle Ages on account of the salt industry from where the city derives its name. Many beautiful baroque buildings are a testament to the city’s illustrious past when it was controlled by the powerful and wealthy bishops. The city is also famed in the world of music, as the birthplace of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and more recently as the setting for “The Sound of Music” and is also home to the Getriedegasse, one of the most beautiful shopping streets in Austria. On arrival in Salzburg we include a guided sightseeing tour to introduce you to the city before spending the afternoon at leisure.
