Day 3 - Zell am See & the Pinzgaubahn Railway

Enjoy an excursion to Zell am See, one of the most scenic and well-loved 'lakes and mountains' resorts in Austria. Beautifully located, directly on the shores of Zeller Lake, it has the added advantage of being close to the Hohe Tauern Mountains and the magnificent Grossglockner Mountains. From here, join the Pinzgaubahn Railway for the journey to Mittersill. Running along the foothills of the beautiful Pinzgau Mountains, from which the line takes its name, enjoy the nostalgia of the 'Golden Age' of steam as you travel across barn-dotted meadows. With jolly red carriages trundling below the steep, pine-covered mountains, this train gives a superb panoramic snapshot of the serene Austrian countryside.

You continue to Krimml in Hohe Tauern National Park, the second largest wildlife preserve in Europe and home to the glorious Krimml Waterfalls, the largest in Austria and thought to be the highest in Europe. At over 1,200 feet high and crashing down onto the rocks below, the Krimml Waterfalls cast a shimmering mist over the valley - a truly spectacular sight.

Accessible on foot or by funicular railway, the castle is an incredible slice of Austria's past and its position on a plateau offers exceptional views of the city. Another popular destination is the Stiegel- Brauwelt, here discover the fascinating world of beer brewing and learn the history and the process of creation for this famous beverage. Afterwards, why not try some of the local produce in the museum's on-site restaurant and bar area? Afterwards, you could stroll through the Old Town and visit the ancestral home of composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart himself; both his birthplace and his former home are interesting museums showcasing the life, works and mind of this musical prodigy, whilst his statue, the Mozartplatz, can be found close to the Slazach River

Towering at the top of a 6,000-foot mountain high above the town of Berchtesgaden, the Eagle's Nest was originally built as a gift for Adolf Hitler, for his 50th birthday. The site was saved from post-war destruction despite its murky past, and it is now preserved as an important historical monument.

Our tour manager Gareth was the best ever. Hotel was good but breakfast arrangements were a muddle with ineffectual and sometimes gruff waitresses. Some of the daytrips were too rushed and not enough time at some locations'

The tour manager was excellent, the hotel looked beautiful and the rooms were clean but the food served was diabolical, no choice apart from the day before you had to choose either meat or a vegetarian meal. Evening meal was obviously made up of frozen food, no local delicacies were offered, one evening was a thin dried up pork chop with 3 croquette potatoes and frozen cauliflower and broccoli, no gravy or sauce. It was supposed to be all inclusive but it wasn’t, you could have as much beer.or wine as you liked, but if you wanted anything else you had to pay, coffee and tea were never offered after the meal. A pudding offered was 2 slices of very dry Swiss roll, no ice cream or cream offered with it. We even paid on the last night for their al la carte menu thinking we would get a better meal, but no, didn't get what we ordered , asked to pay before we had even finished eating and no discount even though we had already paid for an evening meal. Service and staff were fine unless you wanted something else.

We had a really good tour manager in John. Very easy to get on with, more like one of us. The hotel was excellent, very friendly and helpful. I believe it was family run and this showed. The tours we were taken on were well organised and made for very enjoyable days.
