Dreaming of a Christmas in Europe?

Imagine gliding across the snow laden Swiss Alps on the magnificent Glacier Express train or spending Christmas in an Italian Castle dating back 900 years. Alternatively, celebrate the festive season by Lake Bled in glorious Slovenia or enjoy steaming hot goulash in an 800-year-old Coaching Inn deep in the heart of the Austrian Tyrol. There are so many experiences to be had from sleigh rides with snow bells to mulled wine and ginger biscuits at the festive Christmas Markets. (For a full itinerary visit http://bit.ly/294GZ9n)


These experiences and more can be enjoyed on an Albatross Christmas and New Year tour. There are 22 Festive tours to choose from ranging from 6 to 16 days, all tours have relaxed schedules and have been designed specifically for the Australian and New Zealand traveller.


Each tour usually starts with an in-depth visit to the major cities but then, as Christmas approaches, they escape to the forest covered mountains, medieval castles and nostalgic style hotels for 3, 4, 5 and even up to 7 nights to capture that essential European winter magic.


For example, on the 10 day German Fairytale Christmas tour - after 2 nights in the delightful medieval town of Rothenburg you’ll stay 5 nights over Christmas in a picture perfect hotel in the Bavarian Alps under the shadow of a romantic fairytale castle.


Local excursions are included to ancient Nurnberg, Bamberg, Munich and three of ‘Mad’ King Ludwig’s magnificent castles. Alternatively, the Austrian Christmas Holiday spends 7 nights in a charming, chalet-style hotel and each day excursions are made to the local villages and towns plus a highlight is a steam train ride up the dramatic Ziller Valley.


This is Christmas as it should be. Imagine all those picture perfect Christmas cards with snow covered forest paths, merry crowds and pink-cheeked, laughing children wrapped in bright red scarves and woollen mittens. Towns and villages create a festive wonderland as they fill their old, cobblestoned, medieval squares with fabulous Christmas markets.


Albatross Tours has 22 different yet equally wonderful Christmas and New Year Tours that focus on Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Slovenia, Italy and France.
