Dec 1. MUNICH After arrival in Germany we transfer to central Munich.  Our hotel for the week is in the center of the town.

Dec 2.  NURNBERG  Across the snowy plains of Bavaria to the Christmas Market capital of Europe.    This 1000 year old town hosts the largest single market in the world and has world class history behind it.  The Nurnberg Cathedral towers over the candy striped booths that offer everything from wooden toys to hand made soaps.  Wander the cobblestone streets to find unique gifts for your family and friends.

Dec 3. MUNICH  Today we spend at the 7 markets of the city.   MUNICH, famous for beer, brats, oom-pah bands and the Hofbräuhaus.  We will see the Marien Platz, the Karlstor, the immense neo Gothic City Hall with the world-famous Glockenspiel, the soaring twin onion-domed Frauenkirche, the Baroque Michael’s Church and walk the Kaufinger Street, Munich’s 5th Avenue. You will have a wonderful afternoon browsing the endless market stalls, sipping a hot chocolate at an outdoor heated cafe or playing with the toys at Obletter Toy House.

 

Dec 4. KUFSTEIN, AUSTRIA Into the Tyrolean Alps today to the Tyrolean ski village of Kufstein.  Kufstein has a magical compact market in the main town square or, if you choose, take the funicular up to the Medieval Castle. The great halls and passages are filled with local craftsmen who make their unique wares from wood, leather and iron in front of you.  The market has woolen goods, Dirndls, Lederhosen, remarkable Christmas tree ornaments and other local goods.

Dec 5.  SALZBURG Austria This morning to Mozart´s birthplace and where “The Sound of Music” was filmed, SALZBURG!  Dominating the skyline of the town is the Salzburg Fortress, high on a ridge overlooking the valley.  Below are the twisting lanes of the Old Town chock full of Christmas booths and hot mulled wine stands.  The smell of roasting almonds and wood fires drifts over this magical city.  The Christmas markets here are known for their glassware and fine confections.
