Our 3 night, 2 centre stay in Austria comprises a visit to Kristallwelten (Swarovski World) which is located close to Innsbruck, followed by 2 days touring Salzburg where you visit the Ice Caves and the highlights involved in creating the unforgettable film – The Sound of Music.
Your tour takes you first to Innsbruck where you will spend the first night in a centrally located 4* hotel on bed & breakfast basis.
The next day your driver will take you to Swarovski Crystal World:
We have all heard of Swarovski and the sparkling crystals, founded in Salzburg in 1895; but have you heard of Kristallwelten (Crystal Worlds)? A place where crystal becomes a complete experience. The dazzling crystalline world was created by Austrian Artist Andre Heller to mark the 100th anniversary of the Swarovski company. A giant head spewing water into a pond greets you as you enter. Inside you will find a subterranean labyrinth of of 17 crystalline chambers of wonder. Year-round Swarovski Crystal World provides a glittering back drop to an array of outsanding events. You can even get married in the Crystal Dome!
The next day you will take the train across Austria to Salzburg; one hour and forty minutes of breathtaking scenery will delight you.
Free time to look around this magical city and stay in a centrally located 4* hotel on bed & breakfast basis.
The next day you will experience one of Salzburg’s world famous tourist attractions: The largest ice caves in the world!!
The Ice Caves will literally take your breath away : they are often referred to as the Ice Giants. The tour is 6 hours long departing from Salzburg. The Werfen Ice Cave is a wondrous underground world filled with incredible ice formations that look like natural sculptures. Explore a world of extraordinary natural beauty first hand, right in the heart of this majestic alpine landscape. The ice sculptures are amazing but the very best part really is that there is no electricity inside. You get a tiny fire lamp and the guide; it truly is a magical experience.
After a warm night back at your hotel you can look forward to the following day being totally different!! Today you take delight in following in the footsteps of the famous Von Trapp family as you take the Sound of Music Tour: see Nonnberg Abbey where Maria and the captain married, Hellbrunn Palace and THAT gazebo (I am 16 going on 17!) Mirabell Gardens where the family sang Do-Re-Mi…and much more!
