Day 3 : Neuschwanstein Castle
We visit Neuschwanstein, one of the most recognized castles in the world. Commissioned by King Ludwig II of Bavaria in the mid-1800's, its gothic architecture and majestic setting is most famous as the inspiration for Disney's Magic Kingdom Castle.

Day 4 : Bavarian Alps
Today includes a classic steam train ride before we enjoy a memorable boat cruise on Lake Achensee, the largest and deepest lake in the Tyrolean Alps. The trip to the crystal clear lake will be an unforgettable and romantic experience. To get there, we have to overcome a mountain, which a train can only accomplish with the help of cog wheels. Our accommodations for the next four evenings are in the mountainous region of Kitzbühel, Austria. B,D

Day 5 : Discover Salzburg
Located along the Salzach River, Salzburg is the beautiful city that was featured in the movie, The Sound of Music. Salzburg is also known for its Renaissance and Baroque architecture and was the birthplace of Mozart in 1756. This morning we visit exquisite Mirabell Gardens, featuring impressive landscaping, terraces, marble statues and fountains. Our sightseeing in Salzburg continues with a visit to the Old Town. This picturesque area of the city is home to quaint, winding streets and unique shops. Following our city tour, the remainder of the day is at leisure. B,D

Day 6 : Austria
We visit the beautiful mountain setting of the Berchtesgaden area and tour a local salt mine. In former times, salt mines such as this created great wealth for many nearby cities. This evening we are special guests at an old-fashioned Austrian farm where animals graze in high mountain pastures and wear cowbells so they may be easily located. We can also sample meat and cheeses made fresh on the farm. We then enjoy a festive Tyrolean dinner show before returning to our hotel in Kitzbühel. B,D

Day 7 : Innsbruck
Our sightseeing today features the Tyrolean ski capital of Innsbruck. Surrounded by dramatic mountain landscapes and picturesque villages, Innsbruck has been the site of two Winter Olympics, most recently in 1976. Narrow, twisting streets and tall houses built in the Late Gothic style reflect the city's medieval past. During our visit to Innsbruck, we have time to browse and shop as well as look for exquisite pieces of Austrian Crystal. Sightseeing includes the Court Church, one of the most impressive monuments in Europe. This structure houses the empty tomb of Maximilian I. We also see the Goldenes Dachl ("Golden Roof"), an ornate stone balcony covered by gilded copper tiles built in the 15th century. In later days, it was used by royalty to watch events in the square below. We return to our hotel for dinner. B,D

Day 8 : Oktoberfest
The fun-loving city of Munich welcomes us today. During a sightseeing drive we view some of the city’s landmarks including Glockenspiel animated clock in the Marienplatz. This town square is the traditional old city center. Enjoy lunch and the afternoon at Munich’s Oktoberfest, one of the biggest folk fairs in Europe.
