What’s included


Day 1 - London & Mannheim

Your holiday begins at our St Pancras Departure Office, where you meet. From here, take the Eurostar to Brussels, continuing via Cologne to Mannheim, a German city at the at the confluence of the Rhine and the Neckar rivers. You stay overnight here in a local hotel.

  • Dinner
Day 2 - Kirchberg

Leaving Mannheim, you continue to the picturesque ski village of Kirchberg in Tirol, nestled in rolling hills in the middle of a valley. You check into your hotel for the next six nights and you're free to settle in ahead of dinner. As well as being a popular skiing destination, Kirchberg also boasts a cosmopolitan air, with plenty of fantastic shops, cafés and bars to discover.

  • Breakfast, Dinner
Day 3 - The Eagle’s Nest

Today takes you across the border into Germany, where you visit the Eagle's Nest. Towering at the top of a 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. Currently, the building is owned by a charitable trust, who allow guided tours - a chance to gain a unique insight into this slice of European history. You also have entry to Dokumentation Obersalzberg, an interesting museum housing exhibitions on Nazi Germany, as well as an original WW2 bunker network.

  • Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 4 - Kirchberg

Enjoy a free day in quaint Kirchberg to explore further. Perhaps head out into the countryside on a scenic walk; there are a number of great walking trails available from the town that offer up some wonderful views. Later, you could stop at a local café or bar to rub shoulders with the locals while enjoying a taste of the region.

  • Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 5 - Salzburg

Travel by coach to Salzburg, renowned for its musical and cultural heritage, Mozart, the city's most famous son, is widely celebrated here. Enjoy a guided tour before free time. You could explore the Old Town, crowned by the imposing Hohensalzburg Fortress. Another popular destination is the Stiegel-Brauwelt, where you can discover the fascinating world of beer brewing. Afterwards, you could try some of the local produce in the museum's on-site restaurant and bar area. Later, maybe stroll through the Old Town and visit the ancestral home of Mozart himself. Both his birthplace and his former home are interesting museums, whilst his statue, the Mozartplatz, can be found close to the Slazach River.

  • Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 6 - 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.

  • Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 7 - Kirchberg

Today you're free to relax, or you could explore Kirchberg or the surrounding area a little further. The town's slightly livelier neighbour is Kitzbuhel, found just a short train journey away. The small walled town is known as a stylish winter resort, and its charming medieval streets are filled with chic shops, bars and cafés. Though famous for its skiing opportunities, the quaint streets lend themselves perfectly to idle strolling; perhaps browse an upmarket boutique, or pause for a delicious hot chocolate.

  • Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 8 - Cologne

Bidding farewell to Kirchberg, you take the train to Cologne. Sat on the banks of the Rhine River, the town is around 2,000 years old and is bursting with rich and fascinating culture and history. You check into a local hotel here, where you spend the night tonight.

  • Breakfast, Dinner
Day 9 - London

Your holiday comes to an end today. You take the train to Brussels, where you change for Paris. Here, you join with the Eurostar service to London St Pancras.

  • Breakfast

Sadly our holiday felt more like an endurance race due to delayed and cancelled trains causing real problems. Not Rail Discoveries fault in any way, and our guide, Garrath, did a superb job trying to resolve very difficult situations. Austria was stunningly beautiful. The tour guides we had on individual excursions were excellent. Personally, I felt we spent too long on coaches, maybe more free time could be factored in for future trips. The weather turned exceptionally hot too, which meant we were all trying to keep in the shade, rather than be keen to explore. Again, not Rail Discoveries fault. The food at the hotel during the week wasn't brilliant, though the exception to this was our last night, spent in Cologne. Beautiful hotel and excellent food.

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.
