Call to Book
The focal point of our autumn adventure will be our day at the Almabtrieb – a festival marking the start of autumn when farmers bring their animals down from summer pastures before the weather turns cold. This homecoming is celebrated with a colourful parade of decorated cows alongside marquees with live bands, food and drinks. Another holiday highlight is a visit to the notorious Eagles Nest – Hitler’s renowned retreat. This daunting structure is perched high on a mountain peak in the Bavarian Alps and accessed via a brass lift through the heart of the mountain. Other gems include a day in Innsbruck and an excursion to the resort of Kitzbühel.
