Days 1-2 Cologne
Cologne

London to Oberndorf

Your tour begins today at Rail Discoveries' dedicated St Pancras Departure Office, where you meet your group and Tour Manager. From here, take the Eurostar to Brussels, continuing on via Cologne to Mannheim, where you have dinner this evening before overnighting. On Day 2, continue to Oberndorf, via Munich and Wörgl. You are free to settle in and unwind, ahead of dinner this evening.

Includes:
  • Day 1 - Dinner
  • Day 2 - Breakfast, Dinner
Day 3 Zell am See
Zell am See

Zell am See

Today you depart Oberndorf by rail for an excursion to Zell am See. Zell am See is one of the most scenic and well-loved 'lakes and mountains' resorts in Austria. Beautifully located, directly on the shores of Zeller Lake (Lake Zell), it has the added advantage of being close to the Hohe Tauern Mountains and the magnificent Grossglockner Mountains. Enjoy a gentle cruise across the lake, and relax as you soak up the calming atmosphere and picturesque setting.

The lake is the primary attraction for visitors to this area, with its emerald-green waters stretching out over two and a half miles in length and 0.6 miles in width, a boat ride across Lake Zell also provides access to many of the local villages.

Includes:
  • Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Days 4-5 Salzburg
Salzburg

Salzburg

This morning, travel by coach to Salzburg. Famously renowned for its musical and cultural heritage, and known internationally as the setting for the classical film 'The Sound of Music', Salzburg is also the birthplace of Mozart, and the city's most famous son is widely celebrated here.

Enjoy a guided walking tour, ahead of some free time in Austria's fourth largest city. You could choose to explore the Old Town, crowned by the imposing Hohensalzburg Fortress. Accessible on foot or by funicular railway, the castle is an incredible slice of Austria's past, and its position on a plateau overlooking the town provides exceptional views of the city - a wonderful vantage point for photographs, should you wish to capture the essence of Salzburg on camera. After time to explore, you return to the hotel by coach.

Day 5 is free for you to discover more of the region. Oberndorf is situated on the Salzach River, and has a charming, quiet feel; perhaps take a stroll and soak up the atmosphere of the Tyrol.

Includes:
  • Day 4 - Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
  • Day 5 - Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 6 Eagles Nest
Eagles Nest

The Eagle’s Nest

Your excursion today takes you across the border and into Germany, where you will visit the Eagle's Nest. Towering at the top of a 6,000ft mountain above the town of Berchtesgaden, the Eagle's Nest (or Kehlsteinhaus, in German), has a dark history; it was constructed as a gift for Adolf Hitler as a 50th birthday present, and remained unscathed by bombing during World War II. The site was saved from post-war destruction despite its murky past, to be preserved as a historical monument. Currently the building is owned by a charitable trust, who allow guided tours as a fascinating insight into the terrible history of Europe.

After time here, you then descend to the town itself, for a scenic boat trip on Lake Königssee. Often considered the most beautiful lake in Germany, this majestic lake is surrounded by Bavarian mountains, for an idyllic backdrop. Your boat journey takes you all the way to St Bartholomä, where you have some free time to explore before being transferred back to the hotel by coach, arriving in good time for dinner.

Includes:
  • Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 7 Zillertalbahn
Zillertalbahn

Zillertalbahn

Today join the Zillertal Railway from Jenbach. This narrow-gauge railway was originally planned in 1863, but did not open until 1902. The line runs for 18 miles between Jenbach and Mayrhofen, and services remained popular for many years, especially among tourists, for the great views of the Tyrol region.

In the mid 1960s, the railway was threatened with closure. However, the owners pulled off the feat of not only managing to stay open, but also of increasing their services. The line has stayed open at its entire original length to the present day. Travelling aboard this wonderfully restored steamhauled* train, you get a real sense of a bygone age on the way to Mayrhofen.

*Certain departures may not be steam-hauled, please call for details

Includes:
  • Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Days 8-9 To London
