    A warm Glühwein on a cold December day, listening to traditional Christmas music, wandering the booths and shops decorated for the season, is simply… magic. Bavaria and Tyrol during the holidays is a wonder of Christmas markets, decorated churches, Alpine horn music, cinnamon sticks, and snow. It captures your Christmas spirit and imagination in a way that no other place can. Let me show you.

    • You arrive in Munich where I will be waiting. After checking into our hotel downtown – (Hotel am Viktualienmarkt, centrally located, with breakfast, and amazing views – I only choose the best) – we then make our way into the heart of Munich where the Christmas spirit runs wild. We will wander the streets taking in the sights and sounds, enjoying our first Glühwein of the trip, and sneaking into a few of my favorite churches and beer halls along the way. Dinner will be in downtown Munich at Der Pschorr restaurant, my personal favorite.

    • We meet in the lobby jackets in hand as we then journey to the peak of the Zugspitze Mountain. Using the world record holding cable car we will ascend to just under 10,000 feet where the Alps will open to us with views of Germany, Austria, Italy, and Switzerland. The afternoon is for shopping and hot mulled wine as we wander the small Christmas market and shops of downtown Garmisch and Partenkirchen. That evening we dress warm as a local horse carriage brings us to the entrance of the Partnachklamm where we will have a guided torch lit hike through this amazing canyon where the icicles will dazzle and the river below will excite.

    • We check out of our hotel and hop in our private chauffeured vehicles to Innsbruck; home to over four Christmas markets, the Golden Dachl, and Swarovski Crystal. Feel free to join your guides for a tour of the city or enjoy free time to shop and wander. We meet at 2:00 p.m. for transportation across the Tyrolean Alps to our hotel in Berchtesgaden Germany, the AlpinaRos Hotel, a three star accommodation in the heart of my favorite Alpine village.

When the tour is over you will be dropped of in downtown Salzburg where you get to experience the amazing Christmas Market of Salzburg, the largest in Tyrol. Oh, and did I mention… your first taste of Krampus! The evil demons will wander the streets providing photo opportunities that will make your friends back home wonder just what the heck is going on?! Then using our private transportation we make our way back to Berchtesgaden for a night cap and bed.

    • We  slowly make our way to the famous Salt Mine of Berchtesgaden for a tour over a mile and a half below the earth’s surface. You will get to ride slides and trains as you are mesmerised by the history and methods used in gathering this precious mineral. Then after lunch at the local restaurant we are treated to a Schnapps distillery tour where Krampus demons wait outside. I suggest you bring them a schnapps to keep them at bay!!! In Berchtesgaden we have free time to wander the streets and enjoy the Krampus parades, Christmas Markets, and more! Hot Glühwein acts as our armour as the demons whip and beat the unworthy. But never fear, there are plenty of hiding spots where the timid can watch the festivities or hide when necessary.
