At leisure to relax and enjoy your stay. During your visit we have arranged and included the following programme of excursions:
- Krimml Falls and Kitzbuhel. We firstly take you to see where the Krimml River thunders down over 1,000 feet in 3 mighty stages at the foot of the Gerlos Pass. Afterwards we continue through the Thurn Pass to the internationally renowned resort of Kitzbuhel where there will be time to explore this splendid walled town.
Swarovski Crystal World and Innsbruck
Swarovski is considered by many to be the finest lead crystal made today. At the Swarovski Crystal World you can see the exhibition, perhaps treat yourself or buy some gifts. Admission extra. Afterwards we visit Innsbruck. There are many fine buildings including the ‘Golden Roof’ and the Hofburg Palace.
Salzburg. A romantic fairytale city, dominated by the magnificent Hohen Salzburg Castle. Alternatively known as the “musical city” Salzburg has great links with Mozart and “The Sound of Music. The city is a maze of alleyways and passageways to explore and its elegant squares and exquisite churches are a constant reminder of this city’s intriguing past. Don’t miss the famous Getreidegasse - the narrow little street in which Mozart was born.
- Kirchberg Flower Festival
We have included admission to the Kirchberg Flower Festival. In August every year this friendly resort comes alive with flowers and fun. The pedestrian zone in the centre of the village becomes the meeting point for everyone as live bands and stalls provide entertainment. The highlight of the day is at approximately 15.00 hours when over 20 hotels, clubs and associations parade through the village with their ‘flower sculptures’. The festivities in the village go on into the evening as a Summer night party starts.
Check out of the hotel following breakfast and commence the journey home. We will make our way once again to our overnight hotel where accommodation is reserved on a bed and continental breakfast basis.
Continue our journey to the channel port from where we take the short sea crossing to the UK and onwards back to your local area.
