We meet at the airport at 6.45am for our Air Malta flight to Munich airport departing at 8.45am. On arrival at 11.05am, our coach takes us to visit Munich’s Olympic Park. We have time for lunch (extra) and to visit the area. One of the main attractions is the Olympic Tower (extra) standing at a height of 182 metres where we can admire the marvellous panorama. We later proceed to our 4 star Unterberghof Hotel in Flachau for check-in.
Our first optional full day excursion takes us to Salzkammergut – the Lake District. Our first stop will be in Mondsee, a typical quaint Austrian Village on the bank of Lake Mondsee. At its centre, one can find the lovely St.Michael’s Basilica which was used to film the marriage scene in the famous movie ‘The Sound of Music’. Later, we go to St. Gilgen, the birthplace of Mozart’s mother, where we can ride a boat (extra) to St. Wolfgang, crossing Lake Wolfgangsee which is one of the biggest and most famous lakes in the district.
Today’s optional full day excursion begins with a visit to the 7,000 year old Hallein Salt Mines (extra). Together with our guide, we board an electric train for this fun-filled tour. Then, we will straddle two wooden rails and slide down to the lower level of the mine (one can opt to use the steps). We will be able to view a multi-vision show and take a boat trip across an underground lake. Later, we proceed to Bad Reichenhall, known for the scenic, alpine landscape that surrounds the town, as well as the brine springs that gave rise to tourism in the late 19th century. Our next visit is the attraction of Hellbrunn Summer Palace (extra) with its unique park full of trick fountains. Water was one of the dominant design elements for the palace thus providing amusement and entertainment.
On today’s full day optional excursion we drive through the German Alpine Road to visit the spectacular ‘Eagle’s Nest’ – Hitler’s summer residence (shuttle bus extra). We later make our way towards Lake Kõnigssee, where we can enjoy some amazing views of the mountains overlooking the lake. We have time for lunch (extra) and to go for a walk around the shore, or may even go for a boat ride (extra) on Germany’s most beautiful Alpine Lake. The silent electric boat navigates right past the vertical mountain walls in the emerald fjord lake, where every minute of the journey is relaxing and breathtaking.
After breakfast, our optional full day excursion takes us to the region of Carinthia towards the southern part of Austria. Our first stop will be in Velden, a famous holiday resort, situated on the western shore of Worthersee which is a popular bathing lake and the largest lake in the region. We then drive up an 851 metre high mountain where at the summit we can go up the Pyramidenkogel (extra), a wooden-steel structure overlooking Lake Worthsee. With a total height of 100 metres, the Pyramidenkogel is the highest observation tower in the world offering a lookout platform to gaze at the magnificent landscapes which lie at your feet. Today’s last stop will be in the 17th century town of Klagenfurt. We can stroll around the pedestrian area with its beautifully restored Renaissance courtyard and even have time for personal sightseeing and shopping.
Our full day optional excursion, takes us to Sigmund-Thun Gorge. This spectacular phenomenon waterfall was formed some 14,000 years ago when a glacier melted and left behind a gorge 32 metres deep into the ground. We walk along safe narrow rock faces across wooden catwalks and bridges. We then proceed to nearby Zell am See where we stroll around the attractive narrow streets leading to the shore of the emerald green lake. Our last stop will be in Berchtesgaden, a picturesque, historical little mountain town. Many great sights which surely make this an enjoyable stroll.
