Holiday Itinerary Christmas in an Austrian Castle

Day 1 UK/Mondsee

Depart on your flight to Munich today. On arrival we'll transfer you to your elegant hotel, which is close to the shores of Lake Mondsee. The festivities start straight away as you are welcomed with a glass of mulled wine accompanied by cookies. Spend the rest of the day at leisure before dinner is served at the hotel this evening.​ (D)

Day 2 Christmas Eve Salzburg and a Christmas market

Today you'll visit 'The Sound of Music' city of Salzburg, whose centre has hardly changed since the times of the famous Austrian composer Mozart, who was born here. On a guided walking tour discover Baroque domed churches, merchant houses, hidden arcaded courtyards and the magnificent Hohensalzburg Fortress, which dominates the city. We'll also take a stroll through Mozart Square and see the charming Mirabell Gardens. Next we'll head to the traditional Christmas market in the Kapitelplatz, located next to the splendid cathedral. Perhaps enjoy a mulled wine or two as you browse the festive stalls and shop for last-minute gifts.​ (B, D)

Day 3 Christmas Day Mondsee

Enjoy a relaxing morning at the hotel before a traditional Christmas lunch with all the trimmings is served in the elegant restaurant. There's a lovely treat in store this afternoon as you take an included horse-drawn sleigh ride through Mondsee's snowy winter wonderland. Back at the hotel, the festive celebrations continue this evening with dinner and live musical entertainment. (B, L, D)

Day 4 Boxing Day St Wolfgang and St Gilgen

This morning you'll visit three lakeside villages, with your first stop St Wolfgang, home to the legendary White Horse Inn. This picturesque village sits on the north shore of the Wolfgangsee, at the foot of the Schafberg Mountain. A festive market will still be in full swing and rustic stalls adorned with candles, torches and warming braziers line the narrow streets down to lake's shore. You'll continue to the village of St Gilgen to experience the Wolfgangsee Advent Christmas market, then on to the idyllic village of Strobl, where festive decorations sparkle against the backdrop of the Wolfgangsee. Your day finishes back in Salzburg, where a further highlight is an atmospheric Christmas concert. You'll return to the hotel in time for dinner this evening.  (B, D)
