Add to Shortlist

Days 1-2 Munich

Discover the magic of Munich’s Christmas Markets. There are more than 20 around town, so experience the unique delights each has to offer. Find everything you need to create the perfect nativity scene at the crafty Kripperlmarkt, soak up the atmosphere at the vibrant Tollwood Christmas Market and sing along to the festive tunes of the city’s alpine Christmas Market concert.

Days 3-4 Salzburg

Cross the border into Austria to discover Salzburg, the birthplace of Mozart. Visit the 15th century city hall he was born in – now a museum that displays several of his well-worn instruments. Wander around the atmospheric market in front of the city’s impressive cathedral amid aromas of spicy Glühwein, roasted chestnuts, toasted almonds and cinnamon-brushed baked apples.

Days 5-6 Vienna

Travel to Vienna and soak up the splendour of Austria’s picturesque capital. Take a walking tour of the city, passing by the enchanting Hofburg Palace and the impressive, gothic St Stephen’s Cathedral. Perhaps indulge in some of the delicious festive food along the way, like a savoury Kartoffelpuffer or spicy kirsch-gingerbread. Continue on to the Ringstrasse, once the stomping ground of Sigmund Freud. Later, opt to visit the inspiring Leopold Museum or take a ride on the Prater Ferris Wheel to see the city from the sky.

Days 7-8 Budapest

Admire this beautiful city while it's lit up warmly with fairly lights and sparkling decorations. Discover the city’s exquisite architecture, cross the famed Chain Bridge, soak in a thermal bath or perhaps enjoy insights into Budapest at one of the many museums. Go on a guided orientation tour of the city and explore the delightful Christmas market, which bustles with laughter, tasty treats and traditional decorations.
