Hit the Heights in the Tyrol & Bavaria

Our exciting new tour is based in St Johann in the Tyrol and features excursions into German Bavaria to visit some of its most spectacular attractions. We enjoy a day in historic Salzburg before we cross into Germany for a visit to Berchtesgaden and the famous Eagle’s Nest, followed by a visit to Lake Chiemsee with a boat trip to the impressive Herrenchiemsee Palace.
Day 1 Arrival
We arrive at our hotel in time for dinner.

Day 2 Salzburg
We spend today in the regional capital of Salzburgerland and the home of “The Sound of Music”, historic Salzburg. The old town is a maze of charming pedestrian alleyways with many famous and historic landmarks. To enable us to get our bearings, we enjoy a 2 hour guided walking tour, before exploring the city at leisure.

Day 3 St Johann Driver’s Day Off
We enjoy relaxing at our hotel and exploring the pretty town of St Johann at leisure. We can use our St Johann card to access free travel on the bus or enjoy a gentle 10 minute stroll to the cable car station for a ride offering spectacular views. We can also enjoy free daily entry to the local leisure facilities, just a 3 minute walk from our hotel, which feature indoor and outdoor pools and relaxation zones as well as more energetic activities.

Day 4 Berchtesgaden & The Eagle's Nest
This morning, we travel to the mountain resort of Berchtesgaden and visit the location of Hitler’s “Eagle’s Nest”, perched 6,000ft high on top of the Obersalzberg Mountain. Since 1952, the building has been open to the public as a mountain top restaurant offering the most spectacular views across the region. Please note, due to its unusually high elevation, the Eagle’s Nest is only accessible by special mountain buses running from Obersalzberg, and is open from mid-May to October dependent on weather conditions.

Day 5 Lake Chiemsee & Herrenchiemsee Palace
After breakfast, we make our way to the shores of Lake Chiemsee from where we take a 15 minute boat cruise to the small island of Herreninsel, home to the extravagant Herrenchiemsee Palace and Gardens. We enjoy a guided tour of the palace and gardens, which were built on the instruction of King Ludwig of Bavaria, and modelled on the ornate Palace of Versailles.

Day 6 Departure
We make our way home today.
