Bavarian Forest

Join us for a magical journey through Bavaria’s enchanted forest,
resplendent in all its winter glory, on this spectacular scenic tour.

Day 1 Arrival
We arrive at our hotel in time for dinner.

Day 2 Bavarian Forest & Joska Crystal
We set off this morning for a truly scenic drive through the beautiful wintry countryside of the Bavarian Forest, passing the Großer Arber, the region’s highest mountain. Our journey concludes at Bodenmais, where we visit Joska Crystal for a fascinating 20 minute guided tour and glass blowing demonstration (free of charge). Later in the afternoon we enjoy a horse-drawn sleigh ride, followed by a visit to a skiing hut with sandwiches and live music.

Day 3 Passau
Passau is known as the “city of three rivers” due to its unique position as the point at which the three rivers of the Danube, Inn and Ilz meet, and this morning we enjoy a 75 minute guided walking tour of this colourful city, once an important trading centre. In the afternoon, we spend time at leisure exploring the Baroque Old Town which was designed by Italian architects in the 17th century. Main attractions include St Stephen’s Cathedral, which houses the largest cathedral organ in the world, and the numerous churches and museums set around the picturesque squares, romantic lanes and enchanting riverfront promenades. Back at our hotel, in the evening we enjoy a magical torch-lit walk with mulled wine through the village with our hotel guide.

Day 4 Husky Farm & Treetop Walk
We pay a visit to a husky farm this morning, where we enjoy a guided tour to learn about the lives of these remarkable, hardy dogs. We enjoy a warming drink at the farm, before heading off for a stunning guided walk through the treetops at the spectacular Treetop Walk in the village of Neuschönau on the edge of the Bavarian Forest. This accessible step-free attraction provides unique access to the treetops of the Bavarian Forest along its walking platforms to the impressive gigantic observation tower, from where we can enjoy magnificent views.

Day 5 Departure
After breakfast, we make our way home.
