This twin centre Christmas rail tour gives you the opportunity to experience the festive delights of charming Salzburg in a classical 5-Star hotel, as well as enjoying the musical and cultural delights of elegant Vienna.
We take the Eurostar to Brussels after meeting at our St Pancras Departure Office, travelling on to Nuremberg for an overnight stay. On Day 2 we continue to our hotel in Vienna. After checking in, we enjoy a tour of the city's main sights, taking in the magnificent Imperial architecture on the famous Ringstrasse - a wide avenue that encircles the Old City of Vienna.
For today and tomorrow, you are free to further explore the sights of Vienna at leisure. This fantastic Imperial city has a wealth of grand buildings to discover including the majestic Schönbrunn Palace with its gardens.
We travel by rail to Salzburg on Christmas Eve. After checking in, we begin to discover this musical city on a guided sightseeing tour. Back at the hotel tonight we enjoy a 5 course gala Christmas dinner with included drinks.
Day 6 is Christmas Day and we enjoy a guided tour of the lakes and mountains around Salzburg, beginning this morning with some of the beautiful region's most popular sights. We also enjoy visits to St Gilgen and Mondsee. You have some free time in St Gilgen before we continue to St Wolfgang, a pretty little town on the northern shore of the lake. After taking in the delights of the area, we return to the hotel in the late afternoon, where we settle down to a traditional three-course Christmas dinner.
Enjoy a leisurely Boxing Day to continue exploring Salzburg. Be sure to admire the enchanting shops of the old Getreidegasse and the magnificent Goldgasse, which is located near the Salzach river.
