St. Johann

This charming little market town set in the wide sunny valley close to Kitzbühel is full of Austrian traditions with a Baroque twin spire church and pretty town square filled with quaint cafés that play host to regular festivals and celebrations throughout the summer. There are plenty of shops and restaurants - guests enjoy the ‘Huber Bräu’ local Brewery with its very own tower, for traditional cuisine and views. The town is surrounded by miles of gentle walking and cycling paths, including riverside and valley walks to Kitzbühel, as well as up to higher peaks accessible by gondola. Bus and train links are excellent and its central location between Innsbruck and Salzburg make it a great base for excursions.

Herrenchiemsee from £40 per person (full day)

Journey via the romantic village of Reit im Winkl to the Chiemsee, known as the “Bavarian Sea”. The Chiemsee is the largest lake in Bavaria. The biggest of several islands on the lake and accessible only by boat is Herrenchiemsee. The name derives from a sumptuous and wildly extravagant palace built by King Ludwig II of Bavaria. Marvel at the richly decorated interior and the stunning grounds all modeled on the Palace of Versailles. A fascinating insight into the world of a truly eccentric King.

Salzburg from £32 per person (full day)

Visit Mozart’s birthplace, the Hohensalzburg Fortress, the medieval Old Town and the famous Getreidegasse shopping street. An optional walking tour brings the history of this beautiful city to life.



Berchtesgaden, Germany (full day)

Cross the border into Germany and visit this beautiful Bavarian town with optional excursions to salt-mines and the spectacular Eagles Nest, Hitler’s famous hilltop retreat, where you can enjoy lunch with incredible panoramic views, (pay locally for Eagle's nest option).

Grossglockner Mountain (full day)

A magnificent drive along a famous Alpine road leading right into the heart of the Hohe Tauern National Park up to the highest mountain in Austria at 3,073m, for breath taking glacier views and a chance to see wild marmots at close range. One of our most popular excursions for nature lovers, we enjoy lunch on top of the mountain.
