Holiday Itinerary

Holiday Itinerary

Day 1 Early morning departure for the journey to Folkestone and the crossing to Calais. You will continue the journey through France to Forbach for your overnight stop.

Day 2 Continuing your journey into Austria and to St Georgen im Attergau for a five night stay.

Day 3 Today you will discover the so-called Bavarian Sea – Lake Chiemsee. You will enjoy a boat cruise to the Herreninsel, the largest of the three main islands. This island has a castle built by King Ludwig II in 1878 called Herrenchiemsee, which was never completed and meant to be a replica of the Palace of Versailles. Enjoy a tour through the castle before returning to the mainland.

Day 4 Travel to St. Gilgen, the small Mozart town in the Salzkammergut, famous for its scenery and historic town. You will join a boat cruise across the lake to the famous pilgrimage town of St. Wolfgang, another beautiful village and home to the famous White Horse Inn. Here you will visit the ‘Zum Weissen Rossl’ for coffee and cake before exploring St. Wolfgang. After free time you will take a ride on the cable car on Mount Katrin. Enjoy the 15 minute journey to over 1,400 m above sea level with spectacular views of Mount Dachstein, Mount Loser, Mount Schafberg and many more wonderful mountains of the Salzkammergut.

Day 5 A day at leisure where you could take a boat trip on Lake Attersee, explore the village or take a walk into the hills.

Day 6 Depart for the charming little mountain town of Berchtesgaden, and to the salt mines which have been in uninterrupted operation since 1517. Learn about the miner’s life and the history of the mines on your tour. After the visit you will then take a ride on the Predigstuhl in Bad Reichenhall, on one of the 10 most spectacular cable cars in the world. Once the gondola doors have closed, you will be transported into magnificent scenery for the nine minutes to savour the views. This is the oldest large-cabin cable car in its original state operating all year round.

Day 7 Time to depart Austria and start the journey back into France and the Forbach for the overnight stop.

Day 8 After breakfast, depart the hotel and commence the homeward journey.
