Tour Itinerary
+

Days 1-2: London to St Johann

From our St Pancras Departure Office, we board the Eurostar to Brussels, before continuing on to Cologne, where we overnight. On Day 2, continuing our journey to Austria, today we join the direct service to Munich, enjoying the comforts of First Class and Germany's efficient railway network as the vast and varied landscapes speed by. 

Day 3: At leisure in St Johann

Today you are free to explore beautiful St Johann in Tirol at leisure, and to soak up the pleasant atmosphere in our truly marvellous surroundings. 

Day 4: Grossglockner Panorama and Heiligenblut

Today we embark on a journey to the Hohe Tauern National Park for one of the highlights of our tour, the superb Grossglockner High Alpine Road. After breakfast this morning, we travel north into nearby Salzkammergut by coach, where our journey begins.

Day 5: The Zillertalbahn Railway to Mayrhofen

Today's full day excursion takes us firstly by coach to Jenbach, where we join the narrow-gauge Zillertalbahn Railway, which opened in 1902. Travelling in beautifully restored four-wheeled carriages, we enjoy a 19-mile (31 kilometre) steam-hauled journey through the dramatic Ziller Valley.

Day 6: Zell am See

On today's excursion we travel to Zell am See by rail (Standard Class), a beautiful town set in an idyllic location between Lake Zell and Hohe Tauern National Park. Here we enjoy a leisurely boat trip across the sapphire-blue waters, a great way to admire the stunning scenery, from the lush forests to the undulating hills and towering mountains beyond. 

Days 7-8: St Johann and Salzburg

Today is free for you to explore St Johann. The next morning, we take a coach to Salzburg. One of Austria's best-loved cities, Salzburg is perhaps most famous internationally as the birthplace of Mozart and as the setting for 'The Sound of Music.'

Days 9-10: Homeward Bound

We travel to Wörgl (Standard Class) before continuing via Munich to Cologne. The following day, we continue on to Brussels, transferring for the Eurostar to London.
