Grüss Gott (hello in the local Bavarian dialect) and welcome to the start of your Bavaria & Beyond vacation! Upon arriving at the Munich International Airport, your Bavaria & Beyond guides will be waiting to greet you. Enjoy a complimentary beverage and mingle with your fellow travelers as our group assembles at the designated airport "Treffpunkt" or meeting point. Once the group is completely gathered, we will pack up and depart for beautiful Garmisch-Partenkirchen via a private coach bus. Our "express check-in" process will ensure that you quickly and comfortably settle-in to your new Bavarian "home-away-from-home". After a short break to relax and unpack, a Welcome Reception will be hosted in historic Partenkirchen. Enjoy an all-inclusive meal with delicious local delicacies and of course, Bavarian Bier! During the reception all the necessary information will be distributed to ensure a smooth start to your Bavaria & Beyond vacation!
Walk out the door of the Hotel Rheinischer Hof and get cozy on a classic Bavarian carriage as we make our way around the quaint side streets and country trails of Garmisch-Partenkirchen. Spend time at the local christmas market taking in the sights and smells of the season. This tour is perfect for guests who love Garmisch and want to enjoy the snowy alpine vistas.
Just a short ride south through the Wetterstein and Karwendel mountains sits the stunning Inn River Valley. With its towering mountain peaks, the scenery here is sure to impress. Tucked away in this alpine landscape is Innsbruck and its idyllic Christmas Market. Take in the city's beautiful architecture while perusing through its quaint side streets surrounding the market square.
