Afterwards, there will be free time for you to explore the sights at your leisure. Perhaps take a short walk along the Salzach River or take in the panoramic view of the city from the Hohensalzburg Fortress (at own cost). The funicular is a fast and convenient way to get up to the fortress and back down to the Old City. Be sure to saunter along the Getreidegasse, Salzburg’s most popular shopping mile.

During the Advent season, the largest attraction has to be the Christmas markets which are located on Cathedral and Residenz Square in the heart of the historic city centre. Here you can experience the incredible old Austrian traditions and find the most wonderful Christmas presents for your loved ones at home.

Whilst in Salzburg be sure to spend time in one of the city’s traditional coffeehouses set against the backdrop of stunning architecture and busy squares. Order a piece of Mozart cake and a coffee or, if you prefer, relax with a warming Glühwein – the choice is yours!

Our full day excursion takes us to Innsbruck, the ‘capital of the Tyrol’. Located on the River Inn and at the foot of the Karwendel Alps, Innsbruck is the fifth largest city in Austria. This beautiful city is surrounded by stunning mountain scenery and steeped in history. Innsbruck was host to the Olympic Winter Games in 1964 and again in 1976.



During your free time you can explore the array of Christmas stalls, with the traditional market taking place in the heart of the historic Old Town and overlooked by the famous Golden Roof. A cup of Glühwein will keep you warm whilst you browse the stalls, and be sure to wander down Innsbruck’s main shopping street, the Maria-Theresien-Straße. Here you will be dazzled by lights, glass and crystal whilst browsing the modern stalls selling international gifts and delicious treats.



If you fancy escaping the hustle and bustle of the centre, climb aboard the Hungerburgbahn funicular (at own cost) to reach the Hungerburg mountain station where breathtaking views of Innsbruck are guaranteed.
