Leaving Mannheim, you continue to the picturesque ski village of Kirchberg in Tirol, nestled in rolling hills in the middle of a valley.

As a popular skiing destination, Kirchberg has a cosmopolitan air, with plenty of shops, cafés and bars to discover.

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's 50th birthday. Despite its infamous past, the site was saved from post-war destruction, 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.

Includes
  • Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 4 - Kirchberg

Enjoy a free day in quaint Kirchberg to explore further. You may like to 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 and enjoy a taste of the region.

Includes
  • 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 followed by 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, then 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 Mozart's ancestral home. Both his birthplace and his former home are interesting museums, whilst his statue, the Mozartplatz, can be found close to the Slazach River.

Includes
  • Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 6 - Zillertalbahn & Lake Achensee

Enjoy an excursion on the Zillertalbahn after breakfast today. Our day begins with a coach transfer to Jenbach, where we join the narrow-gauge Zillertalbahn Railway. First opened in 1902, we travel in beautifully restored carriages for a 19-mile steam-hauled journey through the dramatic Ziller Valley. Our route takes us past lush green pastures and remote villages of half-timbered houses and traditional chalets on our way to picturesque Mayrhofen, at the head of the valley. We continue by coach to Pertisau where you take a cruise to the stunning Lake Achensee. Known as the 'fjord of the Alps' and also referred to as the 'Tyrolean Sea' the lake is the largest in Tyrol. You have free time to relax in this peaceful setting, before we return to our hotel in Kirchberg by coach.

Includes
  • 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 where you could enjoy a delicious hot chocolate.

Includes
  • Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 8 - Cologne

Bidding farewell to Kirchberg, you take the train to Cologne where you spend the night. This friendly city has a fascinating history dating back to the Romans, and may be best-known for its extraordinary Gothic cathedral - a vast structure with twin spires, and stunning stained glass, which can be admired from inside and out. This vibrant cultural city is set on the River Rhine, has many museums and a wonderful Old Town with cobblestone alleys, interesting places to eat, and plenty of character.

I had a really good time on this tour with a good balance between excursions and free time. Four stars would have been awarded if more rail travel could have been included in the itinerie. Only travel to and from Austria was by rail. Excursions were by coach. There was a problem with congested carriages on some German trains making access to reserved seats difficult. On the outbound journey there were problems with catering at a stopover Intercity Hotel in Mannheim where 'dinner in hotel' became 'Pizza and Ice Cream' in a nearby restaurant. On the first evening of the group together, it certainly helped to break the ice! And I find that the group experience is an important aspect of these tours.

It was not the holiday that was advertised in the brochure. We were not told of the amended itinerary until shortly before departure.

The main hotel, in Kirchberg, was in a great location and the food, especially breakfasts, was excellent. All three excursions, despite terrible weather at Krimml Falls, were really good. The ability to travel on local trains for free, on non-excursion days meant I could organise really interesting things to do (I went up two ski-lifts one day and visited a brewery on another). For those with mobility issues the 2 day rail journey, each way, was a big problem.
