  • Oberammergau

    Oberammergau is a delightful town in the picturesque Bavarian Alps. Arriving by coach, we roam the historical town and visit the Oberammergau Museum, an exhibition of the town’s history and revered industry of wood carving, a craft which remains a main source of income today. Later, we witness what we have travelled to see; Oberammergau’s Passion Play. During the 17th century, the villagers of Oberammergau pledged that if they were spared from the plague, they would perform the Passion Play - a story of the life and death of Jesus - and have continued to do this every ten years since 1634. Today, it is world renowned and highly anticipated, with over 2,000 citizens involved in the performances that take place in an open-air theatre hosting 4,700 people.


  • Ammergau Alps - Salzburg

    This morning, journey to the UNESCO-listed city of Salzburg, famous for many things including the surrounding hills that featured in ‘The Sound of Music’; we begin with a tour of the wonderful locations and historic sights used in the iconic film. Medieval and Baroque architecture occupy the charming city centre including the 17th century Frohnburg Palace, the grand Leopoldskron Palace and the magnificent Mirabell Palace Gardens. We continue to a local restaurant for lunch before time to leisurely explore this great city. Maybe visit the beautiful Hohensalzburg Castle, a stunning 11th century fortress located on a scenic hilltop surrounded by a mesmerising waterway.
