{tab Day 1}

Arrive in Munich

Welcome to Munich. Transfers leave Munich Airport for your tour hotel at 10:00 & 13:00. Later, an orientation tour will show you all the city's major sights, culminating in the Marienplatz, with its soaring Town Hall & Glockenspiel. Here, the Christkindlmarkt will be in full swing - an entrancing festival of light & music. Your Tour Director will introduce you to one of the market stallholders for a taste of traditional Bavarian Lebkuchen & a fragrant cup of Glühwein. In the evening, join your Tour Director for a Welcome Reception with dinner & wine.

{tab Day 2}

Free time in the Bavarian capital

(Relaxed Start) Munich embraces the holiday season with a particular zeal, so the day is all yours to enjoy the vibrant festive markets that abound in this city. On crisp winter days, organ music & carols ring out from the ancient churches. If snow has fallen, the vast English Garden provides lovely winter vistas. Another option is to experience the romantic royal palaces of the Bavarian Alps.

{tab Day 3}

Lake Chiemsee, Salzburg & Innsbruck

Drive beside the tranquil waters of Lake Chiemsee on your way to Salzburg in Austria, where the spires & domes of the old town are often draped in snow come December. A walk with a Local Expert will show you Mozart's family home & the rosy hues of the 500-year-old Christmas Market in front of the cathedral. Head through the mountains to your Innsbruck hotel. In the evening, drive to the charming town of Hall in Tirol - boasting one of Austria's best-preserved historic centres. Soak up the unique atmosphere in a 700-year-old building & delight your palate with a medieval banquet & wine.

{tab Day 4}

Innsbruck at Leisure & Carriage Ride

(Relaxed Start) Spend the morning at leisure. Immerse yourself in the festive atmosphere of the Old Town & Christmas Markets, set in front of the Golden Roof, graced by beautifully preserved medieval façades. In the afternoon, enjoy delightful scenery & crisp, fresh air on a horse-drawn carriage ride through the countryside of Tyrol.

{tab Day 5}

The Black Forest via Lindau

Take Austria's longest road tunnel back into Germany & pause in the tiny island-town of Lindau. Walk through the maze of ancient streets down to the harbour. Across the lake, often shrouded in mist, look for the rising silhouette of snow-capped peaks. After time to explore, continue along the shores of the Bodensee to your hotel in the Black Forest for three fabulous nights.

{tab Day 6}

Freiburg Sightseeing

Visit Freiburg in the morning - a lively university city with a charming Christmas atmosphere. Walk from the medieval Münster through the heart of the historic old quarter, past colourful stalls offering a range of festive goodies from the Black Forest.

{tab Day 7}

Strasbourg & Alsace experience

(Relaxed Start) Cross the Rhine to the region of Alsace, wedged between the Black Forest & the Vosges Mountains. This area has changed nationality four times since 1870! Arrive in Strasbourg, the ‘city at the crossroads', where the Christmas Market is the oldest & one of the largest in France. Spend time in a cosy neighbourhood of timbered fairy-tale buildings, with Christmas shops & a gingerbread bakery, warm with fragrant promise. Return to Germany & your Black Forest hotel in time for dinner.

{tab Day 8}

The Swiss City of Zürich

(Relaxed Start) Cross the Swiss border & head for Zürich where sightseeing includes the imposing Grossmünster, elegant Fraumünster, & winding alleys of the old town alongside the River Limmat. A highlight is Europe's biggest indoor Christmas extravaganza held in the main railway station, with over 160 wooden chalets & a three-storey Christmas tree, draped with Swarovski crystals. In the evening, toast to the culmination of your Yuletide tour with a festive Celebration Dinner & wine.
