15  December - Prague: A local guide will take you on a leisurely walking tour to the historical sites of ‘Old Prague’. Stroll around the spectacular Prague Christmas market where you will find local handicrafts, like Bohemian crystal and lace and listen to choirs singing Christmas carols on the stage in the Old Town Square while you browse the market stalls and enjoy the food and hot Christmas punch. In the evening enjoy a romantic dinner cruise. See Prague options for further sightseeing.

16 December - Vienna: Stroll around the historic inner city and you will be enchanted by Vienna's spectacular architecture, its cosy coffeehouses, atmospheric wine taverns and musical tradition. Visit the Christmas market in front of City Hall and sample your first cup of hot mulled wine. In the evening take a dreamy ride on a Viennese tram to one of the oldest traditional ‘Heurigen’ Pubs in the ‘Grinzig’ districts and enjoy a traditional Austrian meal and zither music in a building dating back to the 12th Century. See Vienna options for further sightseeing.

17 December - Vienna: You have a 3-day pass for all local transport in and around Vienna. Explore the entire city with its Christmas markets, lights and huge Christmas trees at your leisure. Hire ice-skates and skate on the frozen Danube or on the Ice Rink (with hot punch stalls) in front of the baroque historic museum. In the afternoon visit the magnificent baroque Palace Schönbrunn.  Stay on afterwards to listen to the choirs singing traditional Austrian Christmas carols at the famous Christmas market in front of the palace. 

18 December - Hallstatt: You will arrive by boat at your romantic lakeside hotel. The picturesque town of Hallstatt is enveloped by some of the most breathtaking scenery in the world, listed as the World Cultural Heritage Site „Hallstatt – Dachstein/Salzkammergut“ by UNESCO in 1997. In the evening enjoy a candle-lit dinner in your lake front restaurant.

19 December - Salzburg: Explore the small, car-free inner city. Visit Mozart’s birthplace, the majestic Cathedral, the Christmas markets and take the funicular railway up to the fortress overlooking Salzburg.

20 December - Salzburg: The 4-hour 'Sound of Music' tour takes you to the location where many of the scenes for the movie were filmed. The guide shows you not only the highlights of the ‘Sound of Music’ but also the historical and architectural landmarks in the city, as well as a part of the picturesque lake district. Explore the beautiful village of Mondsee and taste the best ‘crisp apple strudel’ at Mrs. Brown’s café. Alternatively you can choose to undertake the 'Berchtesgaden and underground salt mines' tour.

21 - 25 December - Austrian Alps/Bad Hofgastein: In just over one hour your train takes you up to 1000m into the winter wonderland of the Gastein Valley, surrounded by 3500m snow and glacier-covered mountains. In this well-known resort with its historical and rustic houses you will experience an Austrian Christmas and have 5 days to enjoy the snow and all the snow based activities that you ever wanted. On your first evening you can choose to meet other travellers for a welcome drink in front of the fireplace in the lounge.

In the Gastein Valley there is plenty to do and see for skiers and non-skiers alike. Ski downhill or cross country, go tobogganing (for a special thrill go tobogganing after nightfall), snow-shoe hiking, snow boarding or build a snowman/woman/child or snow kangaroo. Experience the iridescent- blue of the frozen waterfalls and go Ice-climbing (beginners to advanced).

Take a cable car to the summit of one of the surrounding mountains and gasp at the views to glacier-covered mountain peaks. Or get cosy in front of a fireplace in your warm and delightful hotel and look out into a magic winter wonderland. After a day in the snow relax in the hot thermal spa complex of your hotel.

Experience several joyful advent festivities that will get you into the ‘Christmas spirit’. One of these is a horse-drawn sleigh ride into a romantic valley.  Every evening indulge in a 4-course meal featuring different Austrian specialties.

Christmas in continental Europe is celebrated on Christmas Evening. Your celebration will start with a Christmas cocktail, followed by Christmas festivities and a grand Christmas dinner. Don your snow-boots just before midnight and walk through the crunching snow to the village chapel for mass. On your short walk you might come across small groups of carol singers. This will be a Christmas you will remember and cherish forever.

26 December - Munich: The afternoon is yours to explore Munich. Visit the 14th Century residence of the Bavarian rulers, the church of St. Michael, Germany's grandest Renaissance church and the neo-Gothic old town hall at the Marienplatz. Or sample one of Bavaria's famous beers at the Hofbräuhaus and listen to an oompah band.

27 December - Munich - Excursion to Castle Neuschwanstein: Hidden in the seclusion of the Bavarian mountains, King Ludwig II built his dream castle, Neuschwanstein. During your all day trip from Munich you will visit this extraordinary castle, the legacy of Bavaria's eccentric King.

28 December - Munich: Your driver will take you directly from your hotel to your departure terminal at the Munich international airport.
